Re: ICRA

If you're using ICRA, Albert's approach of using both the ICRA3 and RDF tags on a page looks like a wise move. I agree Mike, that is of course what ICRA suggest and provides when you use their tool to generate a label. "Both of these tags {Link tag/labels.rdf file and PICS tag} need to be added to ...

Re: ICRA

Interesting. I added a ICRA label to a domain not long ago. When I check my domain they respond. It is a self-rated program and they no longer check content; "We regret that the ICRAchecked program is no longer running. If you have any questions, please contact us." However, I think the labeling pro...

Re: phpBB Opinion

Albert, Thanks for the evaluation. One of the issues I've had is spam accounts. Spammers on BB, forums and mail list do seem to be a problem. Another phpBB I read has used the "Custom Profile Fields" approach. What is the issue with updates? After an update do you have to reinstall any mods/addons y...

phpBB Opinion

Albert /All, Just let myself get elected to a non-profit Board of Directors. By default I am the "techie." In an effort to improve "community" and communications it occurred to me that a forum may be useful. The current vocalized issue is when the board makes decisions by email (local, Denver, MD, I...

Design tools

I almost feel like a hieratic but I need some advice/guidance about design tools. For reference I'm a "mossback" software type. My first "hello world" program was saved on paper tape for a computer with drum memory - And it was state of the art. I have upgraded my hardware sense then, grudgingly usi...

Definition lists: the DL, DT, and DD elements

I must be overlooking something "most obvious" but I get the following errors: The "DT" tag must have an end tag (</DT>) but the end tag was not found. The "DD" tag must have an end tag (</DD>) but the end tag was not found. The way I read HTML 4.01 Specification, paragraph 10.3 Definition lists: th...

Re: CSS and message 117

In the next BETA release (v10), the message will have a different message ID if there is a "class" attribute... then you can disable the message for images with "class" attributes and not affect the message for images without "class" attributes. If you are interested in a pre-release BETA to try th...

Good suggestion. Having learned something, I can now relax for the rest of the day.

Re: CSS and message 117

Short answer(s) Yes, and Yes, maybe. The quickest and easiest solution may be to give the message a different message ID number when there is a class assigned. Then, using the message ID feature instead of disabling the flag, you can disable the message (when it is displayed for an image with a clas...

Re: CSS and message 117

Albert, Its been a while sense our last "talk." I wasn't vary clear was I? I intended to suggest that the message (117) not be displayed for a img line when the height and/or width are applied inline (as now) or additionally through CSS. I agree normally the attributes would be used inline for each ...

Re: Minor glitch reg. message 118

the 118 messages is generated for both leading and trailing white space around an image. In the example below "[118] The text content of the "A" element begins and ends with whitespace. This may not be wanted." <A href="./Avion/Welcome.html"> <IMG class="sign" src="./Avion/JPG/Thumb/57_0.JPG" alt="M...

CSS and message 117

I am using inline style sheets which include height and width for different classes of IMG. For each IMG in these classes I get message 117 because I have not included height and width. I don't want to turn 117 off to make sure I have either placed each IMG in a class or included width and height. C...

Re: Forcing validation to specific doctype

I'm interested in why? It seems to me that would be similar checking the Queen of England's English with a grammar book from Southern California.
