It looks like PSPad uses TiDy which I don't like nearly as much as CSE's regular or nsglms validation.

PSPad seems to support this under the menu "HTML > Import from CSV". I've never tried this so I don't know how well it works.

I finally got a chance to do your suggestion. Wow, what a difference your CSS code made! Yes I see you've made the changes to your Snaggs-Photos page. And you can easily change the space around images simply by adjusting the margin styling. However, I did notice a typo when you copied the styling. ...

Two questions: What happens if Lighthouse "closes its doors" re: updates. If Vista continues to update itself and Lighthouse doesn't, what will be the consequence. There shouldn't be any consequences. If you use lightbox then you'll always have your copy of the necessary code even if the website va...

Hi Cheyenne,

A thumbnail can be any size you wish. You probably knew that, but there just are not any quick rules about it. Just use whatever size you like.

Here's something you might be interested in:

Re: hspace & vspace

As you can see by going into Source, that I have been making space between the snaggs so they don't look all bunched together. I do so by hspace="20" inside the img src brackets. If the snagg needs to be more centered because of its design, I use vspace="a certain number". There Has to be an easier...

Good point. I noticed the 11owlupsidedown.jpg was 2MB. A thumbnail linked to the full size image would be much better.

Re: title versus alt

Today a friend brought it to my attention that no alt-text is visible when viewing the site with FireFox. Actually, the alt text is visible in Firefox, but only when it's supposed to be, when image loading and rendering is turned off. IE 6 (and perhaps IE 7) incorrectly displays alt texts the same ...

It looks like you did everything correctly :) The id/class problem was due to specificity *. Using class would have worked better if the styling was placed at the bottom of the style sheet, below the styling for a:link, a:visited, a:hover, etc. That way the link and hover styling of the class would ...

Regarding the ID and Class comment, if you exchange the # for . and use Class, the buttons have a white body with enhanced borders in either IE6 or FireFox 2.03. This is the first time I've come across the change. That's strange. I'm not seeing any change in rendering with the two versions below in...

Embedding the styles in the head certainly makes them easier to find and modify compared to using inline styles. However, if the site is several pages and they all use the same styling, then it's more efficient to keep the styles in a separate style sheet. That way any changes will affect all the pa...

You can try using the "position:fixed" styling, but you'll need to use a hack if you want it to work with IE 6. See this page if that's the case: Making Internet Explorer use position: fixed; You don't need to put the style in your main sheet. You could just use an embedded style instead, but if you...

Looks like you should only use this:

img, #top, #content, #bottom { behavior: url(iepngfix.htc); }

Otherwise, your rollover effect stops working.

It has the iepngfix.htc and blank.gif plus 3 other files. Oh, okay. The three other files are just for the sample. You only need the first two, but replace the iepngfix.htc with the one I gave a link to above. Otherwise, your repeating content background png image will disappear. Stick the two file...
