Re: Just learning HTML, wanting to follow XHTML rules (to M. Rawley)
- aaah, all this having been said, I use HTML, CuteFTP and I have no problems. I KISS everyday (Keep It Simple Studip). That is me, not anyone else. Having learned one system, I just don't want to have to learn another.

- Hi All,
Just for fun, I copied a 3 KB html page into Microsoft word (ctrl-C -->
ctrl-V) and saved it as a web page. It had stretched to 26 KB with all
the junk that it had added. When I tried to validate it using CSE, the
validator seized up. It gives up after detecting 50 errors!!

that everyone would join MSN their own private network - much like
Compuserve's and the early AOL.
They decided that everyone should be able to post their documents,
created with WORD, on MSN, and then others would be able to download
these pages and re-create the WORD document that originally produced
it. They called this "round-tripping".
So all that garbage has nothing to do with web standards and
validation but rather is Microsoft's solution to getting back a word
processing file from an MSN page (with all the additional facilities
that such documents contain and HTML documents lack).
Here ends the ancient history lesson!
- Another word about WORD, for those who use WORD to draft posts for
WordPress, then paste the result into a WordPress app; That can cause
WordPress to scramble rendering where the start and end tags are through
complete and utter confusion. Try straightening that kind of mess out
after it's hit the fan! (Sorry if that seems WORDy!)
I use a clip to strip the extra tags out when I run across WORD to HTM
disasters. It's not a good clip, I'm not up on using RegEx like I
should, so it's a cumbersome clip that I have to run at least twice on
each file, plus I use NoteTab crippled under Ubuntu/Wine. Which reminds
me ... how often I've wished that NoteTab would be made compatible with
