Anything has to be better than nothing at all. I haven't used it yet, but
I intend to. I picked up a few html pointers from an auction prg I actually
paid cash money for (only a few bucks) and it completely changed my auction
descriptions. Now I 'm looking forward to learning a bit, instead of just a
couple of things. What attracted me to it was 1) it's free, and 2) if it's
got 14 lessons in it, that's a bunch I've never seen before. (g)
On another level of your page:

There's one page that does a super job on this. Hm. Let me go see what it
is--oh yeah, there it is......... it's
http://www.tigerntigress.com/archive.htm . Zrath gave it to me over a year
ago. You and Norm (and probably everyone else 'cept Steve, who knew about
it ages ago) can grab some images off of it too if you wanna. It's got tons
of index pages after you click on a title...
The background is still too intrusive by far, but you can see that you can
fade that background out quite a bit. In any case, it shows a little of what
one can do, and as a dedicated graphics site, it's pretty cool anyway.
Since I've been playing with photoshop for a while, and now have two books
on it (both still mainly unread), I'm beginning to understand the meaning of
"layers", and how you can make them transparent, translucent, and opaque.
I'm hoping the TMHTML prg will do alot more...

By that, I'm guessing you finally got a chance to read Cyteen. I was out of
the loop for a long time there, so I dunno. Cyteen, except for evil Ari,
bored me for long stretches when I 1st read it, also excepting for the
original Cat and Flor. Then when Ari II and Cat II and Flor II popped up, I
devoured the rest of the book eagerly. I don't think I would like to meet
the original versions of those 3... (brrrrr, shiver-shiver shudder)

I look forward to it, and to Popcorn & A Movie With 6C, when you get it
