Re: Tables and Text (HTML5)

Ugh! Way too much to try to figure out. I'll stick with using tables for layout. Yes, that's what I did for a long time... but when I found the time to "play" with it (particularly CSS Flexbox) to get rid of some layout tables, I enjoyed it. But I can certainly understand wanting to stick with tabl...

Re: Tables and Text (HTML5)

Hello, For page layout, there is CSS Flexbox and CSS Grid Layout. Here's a good page about them if you want to stop using tables for page layout (which I would recommend if you have the time): Relationship of grid layout to other layout methods The basic difference between CSS Grid Layout and CSS Fl...

Re: TEXT-BOLD Does Not Work Using HTML5

Hello, Yes, this is interesting. It seems Chrome and Firefox (and other browsers) are rendering this in different ways. Firefox and Internet Explorer are making the bold text even bolder (font-weight: 900) when <strong> is used, while Chrome and Edge are not (font-weight: 700). It looks like if you ...

Re: TEXT-BOLD Does Not Work Using HTML5

Hello, Thank you for that. It looks like your main content is in a "th" element in a "table". That's not a good idea. Main content should be in a "main" element. Tables should be used for tabular data. As for the bolding issue, the text is already bold because it's in a "th" element which is, by def...

Re: TEXT-BOLD Does Not Work Using HTML5

Hello, The " font-weight " property is the correct property for setting the weight (or boldness) of a font. This works: <p>This is a test of <span style="font-weight: bold">bold</span>.</p>.

Wow.. that's big chunk of Mozilla employees. The world seems to be continually consolidating around a single or very small number of BIG players. I can understand how the pandemic can accelerate that. Here's another article: https://www.zdnet.com/article/mozilla-lays-off-250-employees-while-it-refoc...

Yes, very interesting stuff to think about. It's not hard to believe that less than 2% of a bloated website's traffic is useful to the user. I'm not sure what you mean by the earlier web, but I thought back a little and I remember the days before pop-up blockers and there were some annoying things g...
