I wonder if Eric (or whoever he is) understands the meaning of the 'trying to be cool' hand sign he is giving Wink

...or does it have more than one meaning (OITPOITS)?

Well on the street - in the US and the UK as far as I know - it describes/means something very rude. However; back to the OP's topic...

Really? I thought it was the sign heavy metal fans make cos it's like the horns of the devil, so in this case, it's kinda like "rock on" (still pretty dorky though).

I can't believe I've got to spell this out [cringes] ...it also means: one in the pink and one in the stink. Hopefully that will not be understood by those likely to be offended but I'll remove the post if anyone objects [cringes again].

Never heard that before.

Shock

Never heard that before. It definitely means what I said above though.

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hand_gesture#Horns

Quote:
Many neopagans use it as a symbol of the horned god ... It is also a representation of the Devil by some Satanists.... Perhaps because of its occult significance, it is used as a salute by fans of heavy metal music. This use may have originated with Ronnie James Dio or Kiss.

Although it seems you're right too:

Quote:
It has a variety of other meanings as well, depending on culture and area. In some places, it is a sexual insult, charging a man with being a victim of cuckoldry (this insult is most common in Italy and is also used in Portugal and Brazil).

I first found out about its meaning whilst watching TV. An interviewer asked an American rap artist why so many rappers made that symbol, and he replied as bold as brass as I said above. So you can blame TV Wink

Oops

Not to pop my head back in to the forum after a long absense only to complain, but does it worry no-one else that the page advertising this fantastic way of designing stylesheets has a design flaw? Something appears to be overlapping the end of the text on the right hand side when the screen isn't viewed full screen look...

It's only very very minor and of course I'd let it go if it wasn't on the page advertising this particular software, but as it stands, I raise my outer to fingers to the site!

Well that's not so minor!! What browser do you get that in then?

And I love the screen dump you took, showing the excellent job done of cutting matey out for his jumpey animation. It looks like he has a claw! Clearly their Adobe skills don't extend from Dreamweaver to... say... PhotoShop!

Saucer of milk, table two! Meow...

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

A lot of people will use

A lot of people will use this muck, as it's one less skill they'll have to learn allowing them to believe they have a tool that does the job along with their auto creating web page editor, JS libraries with copy and paste plugins, professional web development sure is a simple thing nowadays.

50px auto 0 auto

So it has to fill in unnecessary values.
