works perfect!!!, thanks!!!. as i dropped the <img> tag, is there anyway to get an alt tag in there without it???.

No, but you can give the link a title. Same visual effect and a good idea in general.

Post Posted: October 16th, 2005, 9:27 pm

Not for the image, but you can give the link a title. Has the same visual effect of an alt tag but it's meant to give a description of what the link points to rather than what the image shows.

There is no ready-made script for this. You will need a custom one. You could probably use curl to send a search term to a translation site and then return the results.

I agree with learning tables in the beginning so you can understand how the templates work, but AFTER you get a good grasp of HTML it would be wise to dive head first into CSS for a great number of reasons.

Post Posted: July 1st, 2005, 1:19 am

Or even more concise
Code: [ Select ]
body{background:#fff url(images/yourimage.ext) no-repeat fixed}
However, we kinda need to see what you're trying to do. If it's a gradient background, you may want to repeat-x (horizontally) or repeat-y (vertically) instead of no-repeat.

Then use the methods you stated above. However, if they are developers, then I'm sure they've heard of the site and have a respect for it. It is probably THE staple on the web for measuring how well your site is optimized. If there is anything better, I haven't seen it.

It's not about flash being difficult. The web is based on html. Telling somebody to start with flash is like telling a kid learning basketball to start with a slam dunk. He needs to learn the basics first.

You absolutely cannot make a database with CSS. It is solely a style language. Your friend may be mistakenly referring to PHP, another 3 letter abbreviation that packs a whole lot more punch.

The keyword and description meta are the only two that are needed, and though they're not completely necessary it is wise to have them for those engines that DO use them. Good clean code is much more important for getting top search engine visibility.

Try putting the class previous and next inside the link instead of in a separate span. Might do the trick. Not sure, but it might.

This poll is wack. That's like asking, "What do you prefer using for architecture? A hammer, paint, or concrete?"

I personally prefer clean html with css thrown in for spice and php + a database for frosting on the cake.

All of the above have their use on the internet (except for flash :lol:)

BTW, I first heard the term "divitis" coined in Zeldman's book "coding for web standards". Cool term though.

PS, you can probably tell I've got a case of smilyitis as well. I love those things. Except when I'm p*ssed off. Then I overuse this one: :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted:

Divitis is a disease a lot of people (including myself) catch when they first begin learning css. Div this, div that, etc. :) When you code for semantics, you put visual appearance second and the actual meaning of code first. For instance, a header should be h1, a paragraph should be p, emphasized t...

One of these days I might actually get my head around css! You'll get it. It takes time, but you'll get it. Just make sure you don't catch divitis in the meantime. Divitis is just as bad as table based design. For instance, if you're working with a title, give it a header tag (h1-h6), don't put it ...

That sounds perfect, but people are afraid that nasty google is going to read your email. just chill out! I agree. As Tom the Great said, It's a program that's scann...

On the css topic, it seemed like after I became proficient in CSS, javascript became more or less useless since I can already do most of the important stuff with php. I can hardly see a need for it at all. At least php works on the backend and has no (or little) affect on d/l speeds (usually).

After viewing vzone's source code, all I can say is, "No thank you." :)

Oh, the book I was referring to is called PHP4 Multimedia Programming published by Wrox. Very good book. A bit advanced for the beginner coders though, but it's worth reading through it even if you can't understand half of what they're trying to do.

The funny thing is... I was just about to post a smirky reply saying, "you think that's bad, check this out..." But then I realized that the story you posted was the same one I was going to post. As Asskissinger from f*ckedgaijin said: That's a cold-hearted judge who didn't think taking a bullet to ...

there's a book out there called "php for multimedia" or something like that that is by far the best (and only) true multimedia php book I've seen. I recommend finding it. I'll try to post the link tommorrow. I'm on Amazon ordering books about every 10-12 days. I'm a freak for books. You can't go wro...
