Re: Mr. Emu Tutorials: Lesson 1 - The Basics *Web Design*

Pssst! When you set a font into a header font (<h1>), some of the headers have an in-built sytle that makes the font a specific size and style that includes bold.

Or am I not making sense?



Edit: Goodnight, Len!

Re: Mr. Emu Tutorials: Lesson 1 - The Basics *Web Design*

If you're not making sense, then this should help you make sense (for I think this is what you're trying to get across). All the values are just random to illustrate the point:

H1 - font size 50, bold
H2 - font size 40, bold
H3 - font size 30, bold
H4 - font size 24, bold
H5 - font size 20, bold
H6 - font size 16, bold

So if text is surrounded by <h1></h1>, it will be forced up to size 50, and be made bold, and so on - the header tags will override any font/p/div/span etc. tags they're between, and vice versa, I think.

All of them can be changed, as I've said, using style code.

Okay, thanks, I'm beginning to get the picture (it takes a while).


Anyway, goodnight, Lenny. I'll wait and see what you put up next, and see if I can get my silly little head around that first.


Bacon butty is sounding good, though; give me meat over fruit any day of the week!

Aha! Yeah, that's a much better explanation. Thanks, Len.

And I'm liking the idea of a bacon butty with tomato sauce right now...


Or a cheeseburger with ketchup...

Re: Mr. Emu Tutorials: Lesson 1 - The Basics *Web Design*

CSS and style sheets are lovely, but there are still (or, there were at one time) browsers that won't read them. Netscape, I think, was one that wouldn't (tho it loves frames, don't ask me why).

I ended up not using style sheets for a long time (still don't, as of now) b/c it wouldn't render in certain browsers, which is kind of a pain. Might change that up next time I redesign my website. [[ who knows when THAT will be ]]

Re: Mr. Emu Tutorials: Lesson 1 - The Basics *Web Design*

I always use tables, not CSS. Then again, I'm waiting to learn about style sheets when Len begins his tutorial. I'll probably still use tables anyway.

Ths is an excellent thread Lenny. You should be congratulated!

In fact the whole idea of having a technology FAQ section is a good idea and adds another whole level to Chrons.

Re: Mr. Emu Tutorials: Lesson 1 - The Basics *Web Design*

Leisha - I use tables *and* CSS. All the CSS on my site goes into the header section - it defines things like colors on the page. I also use div layers.

I'm not very good at javascript, or I'd use a js menu.

I'm a very lazy coder, so I tend not to do things that are too involved. *g* Though I attempted ASP once, but the form code wouldn't work the way I wanted it to.

Re: Mr. Emu Tutorials: Lesson 1 - The Basics *Web Design*

I combine tables with stylesheets, too. And you'll be surprised how easy a Javascript menu actually is.

Right, onto the second tutorial, methinks.

Oh, and thanks, Gollum.
