  1. If I am designing an entire site then once I have done the layout testing on a single sheet I move the CSS to an external style sheet. If I am just writing a single page or a script that will just be a single file then I put the CSS internally as making an extra sheet or a function to just display the CSS from the script when called via the link tag is stupid. Everything has it's place and there is nothing 'sloppy' about using internal CSS as and when the situation requires.
  2. Why is this sloppy? Sometimes it makes more sense to have the CSS in the HTML as opposed to an external CSS file. If all I am making is a single page I'm not going to bother using an external file sheet.
  3. Have a look at my last post regarding Standalone IE. You might be on Vista but a lot of people are not. Ignore that. Even they failed to get it working.
  4. I'm a web developer and my tools are PSPad for my coding/html/php/css/js etc Paint.NET for my graphic creation/editing (obviously) Web Developer Toolbar a must have for any developer using Firefox Xampp a fully fledged WAMP set up (Windows, Apache, MySQL and PHP) All browser for testing in in portable format: Firefox Portable Opera Portable Portable Safari Portable Chrome (do a search in top right for chrome) Stand Alone IE installs IE as a stand alone application. Offers IE 3, 4.01, 5.01, 5.5 and 6 but to be honest you really only need 6 as anyone using older than that really needs to update. All the above are free I might add.
  5. Tom Jackson has made a plugin for doing the fiery text from this tutorial.
  6. But you can't say Opera's the safest web browser any more
  7. I'm calculating the distance from the center to define the blur amount. It is then more 'natural' to me to set the distance from the center...The other way (from the edge) will be to difficult to implemant! I was thinking that everything on the inside of the selection would be untouched and then the blur would start from the edge of the selection area.
  8. Stupid question but you are trying the right version of Flash?
  9. Try Firefox 3. Thats supposed to be faster. You can get the portable version of the beta from
  10. Just been playing with this and I noticed that the centering system is based on the full image even if you only have a small area selected. I did have a thought though but it's probably miles out. Couldn't this work by the user selecting the area to start the blur from and then blur from the edge of the selection outwards based upon the blur distance specified by the user?
  11. Pah when I requested the exact same thing at the start of November I hardly got any answers except from BoltBait about his Strip Primary Color plugin.
  12. That is a perfectly valid use of a table. Tables are meant to be for displaying data. Although there is some debate, even in the W3C, as whether or not it is valid to use tables to control the layout.
  13. One of the sites I posted is a business site but as they are only a local company and don't do business over the net so I didn't see it as being advertising.
  14. Lol I just posted about Firefox 3 beta 1 portable on the previous page of this thread.
