So, I've decided we all need to collaborate and write a book.

We can call it ...

...

DUHN DA DA DUHHNNNNNNN!

"CSS Creator" yay!!!

and the author tag can be

"Those A-Holes Who Are Full Of Themselves on That One Board"

or not, but it might be a fun project none-the-less and proceeds can go towards making the site better, faster, etc.

Before abdicating, will you please purchase for your successor, and instruct on the use of 1) a spell checker, and 2) a copy of Strunk & White's Elements of Style?

Unplanned code results in a tangled wad of brain-cramping confusion.

There are enough html & css demos and tutorials to be interesting. Please visit.

This page will also include the definition of "all" in at least 30 different languages.

Chapter 3 (written by gary)
Learn to use a spell checker (with at minimum 150 words missepled)

Chapter 4 (written by Hugo)

ROFL! This is shaping up to be a masterpiece guys!!

As a suggestion - I think stretchy pages might come next followed swiftly by What sort of glue do you use for the footer?

Fortunately no one can assign me to write any of that but I shall cheer loudly and long from the fans' gallery!!! Smile

I shall also be the first in line to buy a signed copy - for posterity, since I will probably never write another website LOL!

Mods and gurus – THANK YOU!
For your time, knowledge and experience so willingly and generously given.
Please come back tomorrow and sort us all out again Smile

Well most people appear to

Well most people appear to try using flour and water to clue their footers but it never works, you have to use two stage epoxy resin and ensure you don't scroll the browser for at least 24 hours until it's fully set.
