The following snippets need clean-up and posting --

If I understand what you're looking for, the trick is to set the frame size to 0 in the frameset. You can play all sorts of naughty and also useful tricks, especially with JavaScript, if you use invisible frames.


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Frameset//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<title>My naughty site</title>

<frameset rows="*,0" frameborder="no" marginwidth="0" border="0"
<frame src="content.html" name="frame1" />
<frame src="invisible.html" name="frame2" />

Content for those who don't use frames. Don't forget them!


Yes: input {font-family: monospace; }

More complicated style sheet (and extra HTML markup) is needed if you don't want to have submit buttons contain monospace text too.

>I can't seem to align headings with a select box.

headingCol1 column2 headingCol3 headingCol4
<option>column1 column2 column3 column4</option>
<option>column1 column2 column3 column4</option>
There isn't a simple way.

I'd suggest a different approach: if it is tabular, make it a table. This means that you can't use <select> but radio buttons (or, in some cases, checkboxes).

The alternative is to use lots of no-break spaces to simulate tabbing.

Put this in the head of the HTML for the pop-up window (MyPage.html):

<SCRIPT language="JavaScript">

function fetch(url) {
  if (url && url != "(none)") opener.location = url;
// -->


And use this code on the links:

<A HREF="JavaScript:fetch('whatever.html')">Click here load whatever.html into the main window!</a>

(John Nasta)

<INPUT maxLength=10 name="Whatever" size=10 onfocus="blur()">

Get rid of page margins:
<style type="text/css"><!--
body {margin:0; position: absolute; top:0; left:0}

put one of the following in your <head> (through the left ear is best)

index this page, don't follow the links:

 <META name="robots" content="index, nofollow">

don't index this page, follow the links:

 <META name="robots" content="noindex, follow">

don't index this page or follow the links:

 <META name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow">

index this page and follow the links:

 <META name="robots" content="index, follow">

you can also use the robots.txt file in your root directory. read all about it here -- http://www.robotstxt.org/

First, let us review fundamentals. In a document written in Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML, of which HTML 4 claims to be an "application"), the basic construct is the element. A typical element has a start tag, has content, and has an end tag. However, it is allowed that certain elements lack one or both tags. This is allowed only when the start of and end of the element are clearly implied by context.

In HTML 4.01, the 'TBODY' element type is always in the content model of the 'TABLE' element type. So, if one writes a valid HTML 4.01 'TABLE' element, there exists at least one 'TBODY' child of the 'TABLE' element, even if there are no tags for the 'TBODY' element.

One reason to include the tags for 'TBODY' elements is to show defective user agents that you have a 'TBODY' element.

A good reason to include the tags for 'TBODY' elements is to have multiple 'TBODY' elements in a single 'TABLE' element. As a trivial example, imagine three weeks worth of data. If each day's worth of data occupies a single row ('TR' element), we can enclose each week in a 'TBODY' element. If nothing else, this provides structural hooks for style sheets.

One poster mentioned that the 'TBODY' element type allows visual user agents to scroll through the body of a table while retaining headings. (The poster also mentioned the inability of current user agents to do so.) With respect to the 'TBODY' element type, it is the companion 'THEAD' element type which is the star. The 'THEAD' element type is the one whose elements' content should remain fixed in place while the body scrolls.

If this is a new site, it may be a propagation problem, however, for running a trace route if you are using Win 95 or 98. If you are using Win2000, there is a place for doing this, use your help file. If you are not running Windows, you will need to let us know what you are running.

The following website tracks the performance of the major backbone providers. Internetweather.com updates their page at 5 minute intervals. http://www.internetweather.com

For Trace Route

1.) go to a DOS prompt.

2.) At the command line, type 'TRACERT yourdomain.com' (minus the quotes, replace 'yourdomain.com' with your domain name)

3.) Your screen may output information that looks like:

Tracing route to example.com [] over a maximum of 30 hops:

 1 - 123 ms - 123 ms -123 ms -
 2 - 147 ms - 145 ms -182 ms - example.pop.psi.net []
 3 - 170 ms - 134 ms -134 ms -
 4 - 123 ms - 123 ms -123 ms - example.com []

4.) This is called a traceroute, which traces, hop for hop, all the jumps you take from your internet connection to the destination. The first few hops are usually through your service provider's network. The hops from there are usually through the backbone/upstream provider your service provider uses to route internet traffic. The last few hops will be with our upstream/backbone provider through our server network and to your server. Each hop shows timing information (designated by 3 sets of 'ms' ratings). Timing below 300 ms is good timing. Anything above that up to 1000 ms indicates some delays which will ultimately affect your overall connection performance. Any 'ms' timings represented by an asterisk (*) indicate a timeout (bad connection). Whatever hops shows asterisks or timings above 500 will, more than likely, be where your connection is having problems. If the problems occur, in the first few hops, it is your service provider. If the problems occur within the midway hops, it is your service provider's upstream/backbone connection. If the problem occurs within the last few hops to your site, then it is a problem on the server end. Please note, if the problem occurs in the first few hops, it will affect most of the hops thereafter.

In the dos program, you can mark, highlight and copy the output. Paste it into an email and send it to your server company if you believe the error is on their end.

I am trying to figure out a way to convert a single XML document into multiple HTML documents using XSLT. I would like to be able to maintain links between the pages.

This example might be of help. It's for client side only --http://www.bayes.co.uk/xml/tutorial/paging/slider.xml
