[WSG] Positioning a graphic

2006-02-26 Thread Angus at InfoForce Services
I appologize if this is off topic. The validator does not like float: 
center;. What is the correct way to center an image? IE6 shows a centered 
Scottish flag which I would like and Firefox 1.5 does not.

Re: [WSG] Target sued over non-accessible site

2006-02-09 Thread Angus at InfoForce Services
As a blind web site designer who has his alt tag reading protion of his 
screen reading software. I would say their should be both images and a text 
description. I have come across many fully sighted (20/20 Vision( persons 
that have difficulty with even the simplest images. I like to provide a link 
to a page with the image and a full text version. And how about dialup 
users. Many graphic images can slow a dialup user's access signifcantlly.

Re: [WSG] Download box in Firefox

2005-07-17 Thread Angus at InfoForce Services

Patrick

Various ways. If you are using Apache, you could (in .htaccess or 
httpd.conf)


AddType application/octet-stream .mp3
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_mime.html#addtype

or, if they're all in a directory with nothing else

ForceType application/octet-stream
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_mime.html#forcetype

Not bullet proof, as some browsers will still try to guess the file type 
from incoming data and act accordingly...



I am very new to all this. I like option one, however, I am not the system 
adminastrator and I could not modify the httpd file. I do not know if I 
should send the above to the system administrator of the web host I am using 
or the modification is on my end.

[WSG] Playing a MIDI

2005-06-30 Thread Angus at InfoForce Services
I think this is on topic. If not please reply privately. I have a MIDI file 
that starts playing when a web page loads. I was toying with the idea that 
the visiter could turn the MIDI file on or off at will. I dumped the idea 
mainly due to time constraints. I also chose MIDI because WAV and/MP3 would 
take to long to download. Is this talk about Flash relevant to my situation?

Re: [WSG] Playing a MIDI

Thank you for all the responses. I mainly chose MIDI for accessibility to 
Dial up users. I would rather use MP3 myself. So am I reading correctly, it 
is possible to have a valid line  of code in my xhtml that will play the 
audio file regardless of OS?
