  1. has not set their status

  2. First impressions. I like the "new" layout, it's easier to get around. I'm going to dig about a bit more and come back with second impressions. Jim. Slàinte mhor a h-uile là a chi 's nach fhaic (Great health to you every day that I see you and every day that I don't) A little Scots gealic.
  3. Oh dear, just as well I'm retired mine is worth a whole 0$
  4. I'm a happy bunny, at last Firefox accepts embedded fonts and displays them properly. So at last IE can be consigned to the garbage. Or have I spoken too soon, I haven't seen 3.5 yet.
  5. I must admit I like that , you can get different ways to to do things and get ideas of new thing to try on your site. Mind you, I have a big advantage, no clients, no pressure just the pure pleasure of learning.
  6. I checked my site on Google Webmaster Tools and the only problem showing is Duplicate Title Tags I'm getting Guestbook 3 times, the errors are :- guestbook/gbook.php?a=delete&num=1 guestbook/gbook.php?a=reply&anum=0 guestbook/gbook.php?a=viewIP&num=0 I've played around a bit but I can't find a way to alter the HTML title tag. Is it even possible to do this ? TIA Aucheorn

    text not changing color

    Try placing color after font-size font-family font-size color text-align It works for me
  8. I've been reading what users have been saying, and a site about "fixes" already !! Naw I'll steer clear.
  9. Well that it done my site is near compatable as I can get it with the following browsers, IE, Opera, (which I like ) Mozilla Firefox, (which I don't ) Safari and Konquerer ( which works better under Linux than it does under Windows ) I've taken LSWs points and changed some of the fonts to make it easier to read. A few interesting points have come up with using different browsers and operating systems. Originally W3C would only validate my stylesheet as 2.0 but since using a modified Meyers and Clagnut code in my css it now validates as 2.1 although the basic code ie the embedding of "Monotype Corsiva CE" font remains unchanged.. All the browsers I played with only one did not display embedded fonts ! So Firefox may be the the only "compliant" browser it's also the only one of shall I say the main browsers that is out of step. Thanks again for all your help. PS. I've given these forum a credit on my site.
  10. Thank you gentlemen. In the short time I've been using this site I've learnt more than I had in the previous years of self taught fumbling. I'm so glad I found it.
  11. Sorry you're at the wrong end of Britain ! Here in the North of Scotland the weather has been glorious all weekend. I was even weeding this morning in my shorts ! (Not a pretty sight)
  12. I'm in the process of slight changes to coding to get my site looking the same in all browsers and it's working well so far on Firefox,Opera and IE7 . There is one slight , but aggravating problem, font sizes ! Opera shows smaller than IE and Firefox shows larger than IE for the same font size it doesn't matter whether I use ' size:2;' or 'size:12pt:' Is there a work around ? 2nd question, are there other browsers I should cater for ?
  13. Some heavy reading there How are compromises reached from what seems pretty entrenched positions ? I am a lot wiser now, and still in favour of .eot. Off topic : Keep the "Only in Alaska" coming. What's Caribou Barbie upto these days ?
