Re: How To Code a Thin Orange Line (HTML5)

As usual, you solved my problem.

I don't understand the difference between *.HR and just HR.

A long time ago I was advised (maybe by you? or following other examples to use *. in front of classes.

Re: How To Code a Thin Orange Line (HTML5)

Doesn't work - I think. Rather than using style in the HTML, I prefer to use CSS to style it. Here's my style: *.HR { BORDER: 1px solid #fabd23; } This produces a dark line - can't tell if it's black or dark gray. Changing the color to red doesn't change the line. Changing the size to 10px also does...

How To Code a Thin Orange Line (HTML5)

How do I change the following HTML 4.01 transitional code

Code: Select all

<hr class="TABLE-CENTERED WIDTH75P" size="1" color="#fabd23" noshade>
to be HTML compliant?

The end result should be a thin (1ipixel high?) orange line with no background shading.

Re: Wrapping Indented Lists (HTML5)

Yes, I am using "ul" to indent a list.

So I guess that "tip" I'm seeing is just a reminder; not necessarily a problem.

I always try to ensure all of my web pages are as free as possible from errors/warnings.

[ANSWERED] Wrapping Indented Lists (HTML5)

In the past I've used the combination of <ul> and <li> to display indented lists. Checking my document that is HTML5 gives me the following tip: Never use "ul" elements (nor "dl" elements) only to create indentation. This is bad practice, bad for accessibility, and ignores the me...

Re: File Not Found Error

Found the problem: I stepped through the error until it showed where the actual error was. It was much further down in the file where I was using <a href="6-81445"> which should have obviously been <a href="#6-81445"> (notice the missing pound sign at the beginning of the link?)....

Okay - so I can place a span tag inside a span? Great! That will solve several message HTML validator keeps displaying.

Re: Where to place the "id=" when using <a href'#" to link to it (HTML5)

I did convert most of my web pages to HTML 5, but this last page is just too long.
I may attempt some day in the future.
Problem I ran across - and am investigating is using iframe to include the menu on the top of the page and the footer.

Re: Where to place the "id=" when using <a href'#" to link to it (HTML5)

Worked - again thanks!
Unfortunately I'm scrapping updating that page to HTML 5. Way too many changes needed.
I looked for an HTML 4.01 transitional to HTML5 converter, but nothing. I did see plenty of pages that said what needed to be changed.
