Re: [NTO] Re: Long web pages [was: Working with Adobe PDF docs.]
I have a sec between alerts--N.O. and flood--but few publishers will even look at a MS loaded with color! They want b&w and expect you to know that. Most will only accept MSs with color from "published and selling authors!"
For text publication, never send anything but appropriately formatted 8.5 X 11 inch white paper using black ink! A query letter to the publisher would be smart before even sending the best MS today. "Over-the-transom" MSs are last to be seen or read. Hope you know you publisher well.
I sometimes send 5 or 6 queries to the editor-in-chief in an effort to precisely clarify what it is he/she e xpects from me. I try to add factoid-like statements from the orig. MS to show him/her what subject I'm covering and to enlighten them on what slant and tone I'm taking with the piece. Best to change these latter 2 elements as you select dif. mags. and book publishers as per their current style and what they're wanting in their medium.
Sorry I can't help more but must leave in search of a good meal. No grocery stores open. Watch N.O. for first signs of epidemic. Water borne diseases abound normally in 3rd world countries! A "certain" immunity can be acquired there but not in N.O. This city will never be re-built! It's too low!!!!!!!!!!!!

sometimes too, but Firefox's Webdeveloper toolbar works better than
Opera's does, so I use that most of the time.

things up so the visitor can choose. Well, I guess I also need to
save your page source, so I'll do that too; it must have a place from
which to choose.
Firefox gave me a menu from the Webdeveloper toolbar from which to
choose, but that wouldn't be how a person, say, using IE, would
choose, nor one using a browser without Ff's webdeveloper toolbar. So
I'll be back again.

Thanks a million!
