IE is a piece of crap. My turning point was when IE decided to open up a shmillion popups that refreshed repeatedly, crashing my computer and causing the evil clicky noise to be repeated over and over. When I rebooted, I Googled for "internet browser," saw Firefox. It had me at hello. Sorry for bein...

Windows sucks...I have no idea where I'd be if I was running that instead. I'm sorry I cannot be of more help to you, Ju!

Post Posted: March 24th, 2005, 3:54 pm

My impression of what Ju means is that they want the file, when you click on it, to be downloaded, not opened in the browser. I'm fairly sure that if you modify the file permissions correctly, preventing read access, that it will happen. Am I wrong?

I don't see the option you mention. Also, I clicked on "Add/Remove Windows Components," but all that does is remove access to it from the Desktop and Start menu. Are you using Windows XP Home?

You could also insert the html code into a textarea:

Another tag I used to use:

<xmp>HTML CODE HERE</xmp>

It makes it show up in plain text.

This site has been through several layouts until I got to this one, which is my third all-CSS and the first one I've ever really loved.

I understand the scheme won't appeal to some people, but please try to critique it beyond that.

Post Posted: June 16th, 2004, 4:53 pm

In anything other than IE, the contnt looks bad because of the scrollbars. What about placing only one news item on the page? Or switching to a no-inline-scroll layout. Alos, widen the content area.

Don't forget to use correct grammar and spelling! Errors make people surf away...

Original concept. Very nice. 1) The initial page doesn't preload the backgrounds, it loads them on hover. I didn't get what I was seeing when suddenly, these backgrounds came out of nowhere. Extremely distorting to the eye. 2) Very plain, though. You can be stylish and minimalist without being borin...

1) Why is your navigation in a larger font size than your body? It throws everything off. 2) In Mozilla, your nav looks awful. It's hanging over the graphic boundaries. Use imagemaps or decrease the graphics. 3) Always use correct grammar and spelling to be professional. Ask someone to proofread. 4)...

I opened up my Winamp 5.01, and tried to play a song. Alas, I got an error that says:

Post Posted: March 21st, 2004, 12:19 am This webzine just started up. Don't comment about the current layout. I know it's awful and probably incompatible, too. I would really like to hear suggestions on what sort of layout I should use for this site. I need something more simple, that won't take away from the c...

Very nice. Simple, compatible, great concept.

Your colors are awful. No grey/blue/black, it makes me sleepy. Pick three colors and stick with them.

You have a great thing going, just make it pr33ty to look at.

Just to let you know:

IS AN INVALUBLE RESOURCE! I can't tell you how much good stuff is over there. It's geared more for web designers than programmers, but good nonetheless.

Maggie hath a question:

Why would virus programmers and hackers want in a normal person's PC? IT'S FILLED WITH NOTHING BUT B0RKED WORD DOCUMENTS AND FAVORITES! Is it just to annoy them? *wh33z3*

Use CSS.

Between the head tags, put the following (or add the middle line to your existing stylesheet:)

Code: [ Select ]
<style type="text/css">
td {border:1px solid COLORHERE;}
  1. <style type="text/css">
  2. td {border:1px solid COLORHERE;}
  3. </style>

I believe that works, but if it doesn't, let me know.[/code]

I had to complement you on this: I love the layout. It's killer. Those scrollbars are amazing; I bet they took a long time to do. Great job!

I wouldn't use iframes. Try plain divs instead, they scroll too. Also, I think you're right about the JavaScript thing, there may also be a way in CSS, if js doesn't work.
