There is a really good and somewhat easy to understand introduction to
CSS in part three of our all father-and-mother-of-Tidy Dave Ragget's
HTML tutorial. There is a link to it somewhere on the Tidy home page,
as far as I remember.
Happy CSSin' ! *g*
You define different font classes to get the different colors. For example, the FONT definition you
gave might be for your default page font, while the others might be
font-family : times;
font-style : normal;
font-family : times;
font-style : normal;
Then, in your <font> tags, you would change the color by using the class definition via <font
class=RED> to use any color other than the default one. Or, if you prefer to create classes that
are not tied to a tag, just do the same as above, but don't use the FONT, just the .WHATEVER
(dot WHATEVER). Then, you can refer to those classes in areas outside of FONT tags, doing
away with them all together.
Hope this helps,

Thanks - don't know what I would use it for, but it may come

> I couldn't find the Clip(s) to check the tags, etc.Try selecting any text with tags then attempt to wrap with a provided clip
Try a few badly formed wraps.
eg; In trying to wrap </ul> without the opening <ul> an infobox will report
"You are trying to wrap a closing tag. Where is the opening tag?"
eg; try to wrap Ul element with another Ul element and an infobox will
"You cannot wrap Element <ul> with <ul>
valid Tags for <ul> are li".
This does prevent all cases of syntactically bad wrapping but I think does a
reasonble job to prevent some common markup typos.

Good idea and I'll see where else I can apply this.
I have now added a new "element_can_contain" button , when cursor placed on
an existing tag and pressed will present in an info box a list of acceptable
tags that can follow. This should help those learning xhtml.

NoteTab has to convert them. I have a mess of different image

Thanks for the list of URLs
> If I do xhtml can I turn right around and use NoteTab's Tags toYes but it won't be xhtml because xhtml is case sensitive and the case of
tags and thier attributes must all be in lower case.

Mark up with xhtml is easier to learn than html as as the xhtml markup rules
are more consistent than html.
all tags and attributes in lower case
all tags must be closed. eg; <p>closed with </p>
Attribute values must always be quoted.
and so on ... refer to the following one page w3c doc
Also xhtml ought to produce a cleaner and more easily readible and alterable
For advanced user.
With xhtml you get the ease and familiarity of html with the power of xml.
When you markup with xhtml what you get is "a reformulation of HTML 4 as an
XML 1.0 application".
If your xhtml document is well formed and valid then you can parse it as XML
and use the DOM to manipulate it and CSS to style it. In an ms enviroment
this means you can use the ms COM object. "microsoft.xmldom" and use the
scriptable properties and methods available for that object. There are also
various perl and java xml parsers you can use. It's early stages yet but it
seems the futures is xml. I don't know who said it I think the quote is
"Xhtml is the bridge between the past and future web"

Determines whether Tidy generates a pretty printed version of the markup.
Bool values are either yes or no. Note that Tidy won't generate a pretty
printed version if it finds unknown tags, or missing trailing quotes on
attribute values, or missing trailing '>' on tags. The default is yes. "
The xhtml library has a wizard to help build a tidy config file. You can
access the config file wizard by holding ctrl down while pressing the tidy
