I would suggest that this is pre. Poetry is generally so display-specific that you couldn't hope to mark it up, I'd say. Michael On Thu, Jun 19, 2008 at 19:08, James Jeffery [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: A question was raised at work today 'How do you mark up a poem'. I looked into it but found

Hey, My suggestion would be td class=..a href=...img src=.. alt=.. //a/td And attaching the onclick event to a with return false; to stop it executing when there is javascript. The alternative is to have an onload function that puts the image outside the a and deletes the a element. Both of

Re: [WSG] *Why* doesn't Google validate? was New logo scheme was talking points for standards

2005-12-08 Thread Michael Cordover
I think that Google's failure to validate may be due to the simple issue of bandwidth. Certainly on the main page, the whole source is compressed and effectively minimised. Bandwidth is expensive these days. Inserting a doctype, separating style data, that sort of thing, takes a lot of

See, I'd say a table or a definition list. I think I'm one of the very few people who actually supports the loss of the start= attribute. An ordered list means there is an order, *not* that there is anything particular assocated with that order. So, think about it in terms of set theory, if you
