I came across a free ebook that gives a simple intro into HTML code. If anyone is interesested, send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
, with "Basic HTML" in the subject line and I'll send you a copy (note - I didn't say use my website mail to bump up the figures - aren't I good :D )
Keep in mind that Firefox runs on both Windows and Linux. When MS Vista hits the streets the price of that and the new Office version scares folks and we could see a large surge in Linux users in the near future.
Your next most used Browser is Opera - available as a free download at www.opera.com
Click on the basic Free download. It has a banner ad at the top on the free version. (A handy browser when you don't want to be a malware target).
Spaces in file names is a big no-no in webdesign and will perform differently from one browser to another. I use Studio 8 (Dreamweaver with all bells and whistles - the FOTBOAT edition) and have the training DVDs as well. They keep repeating that you should not use spaces in file names.
We do graphic design for Internet use (since 1999) - I design test with Firefox, then check using IE7, Opera, Netscape and Konqueror (Linux). I have never noticed any substantial difference between IE7 and Firefox views but often Opera and Netcape will show borders when none appear in Firefox/IE7 or joins where tiled backgrounds with texture overlap.
