Good thought, indeed. Some (many) years back when I was looking at preparing a book-length doc for the web with HTML I actually did use the style-sheet method. IIRC, it worked well with HTML-2.0. But with my Jotting stuff it got a little fancier, bit-by-bit until I had at least two jpegs/*php plus very light blue <TABLE> formatting [15%, 70%, 15%], and a textured.jpg "paper" bg on the 70%. That's 3 jpegs. I don't know if you can do something like that with CSS. I wound up creating *one* html/php template, and mouse cut-and-pasting my segue, then the <CENTER>meditation</CENTER> and after a few hours it was good enough... . I'll check into the style sheets; thanks! gary PS: I also checked out Don Knuth's TeX stuff, but that's waaaaay overkill :-) -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public service Unix _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
