FOR PROBLEMS WITH COLOR ETC. WITH BROWSERS (taken from htmltools on lusenet)

Hi Charles! I just downloaded HTMLtools. Just to see if it could help me to be more productive. I've not had the time to test it yet but to get colors on your homepage you have to tell the browser to interpret the tags which are commands that the browser reads from left to right and from up and down in that order. A typical simple page starts like this:

My Subject bla bla...

The color code could be put in the body tag like this or better you could use css (cascading style sheets) in the head. If you have followed the rules for HTML 2.x-4.x and still got no color it is problably depending on some omitted/forgotten ending tag. If you want your code to be readable by all browsers then you better stick to HTML 3.x. But if you write for them modern browsers then write for Netscape because it is less tolerant for mistakes, usually if it looks good in Netscape it looks good in Internet Explorer. To check your code for mistakes there is a free program to download "CSE Validator Lite" now without spyware as they say in their whitepaper. It's very easy to forget an ending tag in HTML as with parenthesis in LISP. When you use tables never forget to end a tag with an ending (The HTML-standard let you omit this but the browsers can easily get confused. If you are going to mix XML in HTML remember to put the title first after the starting tag. After that you can put the meta-tags css, javascript or what you want. Depending on Browser if you write a body tag like this " **** the body ending tag is missing. You will probably not see any chosen color or in bestcase only white.
