Web Design FAQs
the ten most frequently asked questions
Joe Gillespie
The original idea of this site was to provide information for graphic designers moving from traditional print disciplines to those of the World Wide Web. Over the years, it has gone a bit further than that and people from a wide variety of backgrounds, as well as complete novices, write to me to say thanks or ask where they can find out more information about something I've written. I answer as many as I can.
Amongst that mail, there are some questions that keep cropping up again and again and although I've probably answered them before, I thought that I should put the ten most frequently asked ones all together in one article. Hopefully, that will get them out of the way once and for all!

For the FAQ, please visit http://www.wpdfd.com/index.htm

Just out of curiosity, did you receive permission from Joe Gillespie to post such a large portion of that article of his?

While the fair use clause of the DMCA does permit to post some amount of an article for the the purposes of review, it does NOT permit you to post the article in it's majority or entirety.

Usually, a link to the appropriate page is in order.

Apologies if I spoke out of place, mods :)


Cheers, eh...

Actually, that's a pretty good point CC. No apologies needed.

Joe Gillespie was given credit, that should be sufficient.

Sorry, but simply crediting the author is not sufficient under the law to allow mass or complete copy/paste of an original work.

Link to Joe's copyright policy page:
http://www.wpdfd.com/copyright.htm

"...Republishing of the text in any form is prohibited except with written permission...."

Link to the US copyright office's relevant paper:

"...Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission...."


Cheers...

I noticed ATNO mentioned htmlgoodies.com. That's where I learned HTML. The site has really great Primers for those of use who came into web design knowing NOTHING. It's really aneat site.

Yup, it's where I took my first, faltering steps into the world of html, too :)

The very first time that I clicked the refresh button on my browser while editing an html document written using notepad, was an eye-opening experience for sure.

It's too bad that Joe Burns stopped running the htmlgoodies site, the new manager does a good job, but Joe Burns was able to put his sense of humor into his work and it showed his fondness for his work.


Cheers, eh :)

It was a combination of Joe Burn's HTML Goodies, and Dick Oliver's "Learn HTML 3.2 in 24 hours". Yes, you read that right. My first script was written to display on Netscape Navigator Gold 3. And I even know a couple guys who's first browser was Mosaic. Back then there was no CSS1.

I still have a copy of mine :D

Feels like a lifetime since I stared in wonder at my very first web page :)


Cheers, dude...

*smiles at CC. For those who can't tell, Cold Canuck and I have been a couple pals hangin' out around the net together for a few years. CC can tell you I was a long-time proponent of NS 4.x, but when they fell behind in the browser war I switched to IE. But my hat's off to some like CC who've weeded their way through all the ongoing changes.

I'd have to double check UNFLUX's signature to see if he still has it there, but his quote, "The only constant is change" has always been a fav of mine. It kinda tells it like it is. What we learn today will change tomorrow.
