Would somebody please check my hotmail code for me
Mood:  not sure
Topic: HTML Questions
I am trying to clean up my html & I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing.
Would someone please check these pages & tell me if I'm doing them right before I continue on with them.
I'm concerned that they might not look right in different browers.

both looked fine to me.

in the first page, there is a form right before ambra alerts it says expand, what is that for.

very nicely layed out and the design of the pages are very pleasing.
I only have one thing to add and that is the "file size" of your full size graphics. I didn't check all of them but this one here is over 130,000bytes(131kb)

you have a lot of pictures and with the file sizes that large will take up much directory space and downloading to view them full size....so you might want to think about optimizing your file sizes, but keep the good resolution....

irfanview is a free graphics editor I used for doing these two, below.

all I did was, saved your picture to my computer then opened it with the editor, I didn't minipulate any thing but then I saved as: then a window shows up and you have a choice smaller to larger file size, I choose 50 in the middle of the slider there, and got these results:

yours is 161k
mine 42k

yours is 131k
mine 27k

I see 2 big differences in my Mac netscape7 and IE browser views.

1.Your table displays differently between browsers- there are borders between all cells in netscape7 and no borders in IE except the one that goes around the edges of the table itself. I have a feeling my MacIE browser can't render some of the WindowsIE specific code you wrote into table and cell properties (like bordercolor) so I see nothing but a solid color blue table background color. Of the 2, I like the cleaner borderless cells and solid BG color of IE better. Looks less cluttered and doesn't detract from your intricate beadwork images.

2. I see two amber alert type boxes in both browsers. IE shows two functional tickers one above the other. NS shows that expand box dalleh mentioned and the functional ticker below it... but that lower one runs off the l side of the page. Check your html.

All in all, a very lovely design with nice graphics. Good load time, too. You're doing a very good job! Good luck with your site!

just a minor point. Your main table is centered but it looks like it's contents are L aligned so that there's is a litle more space on the right inner table edge than the left. This is especially noticable in IE. L aligned is the defualt. If you add align="center" to the main table tag it will center the contents of your centered table so that the contents are equally spaced from the l/r inner edges.


<table WIDTH="100%" CELLSPACING="2" CELLPADDING="2" BORDER="1" BORDERCOLOR="#003366" align="center">

I couldn't see the expand even when I went to view source. I think I have it fixed now. It was the paypal logo form. I put my own pictures of the credit cards in the wrong spot.

I couldn't see the pictures you fixed. I got "image hosted by angelfire". But thank you very much for the link. I will definitely give it a try. The program I'm using now distorts the pictures if I make them too small.

I'm using IE so the borders aren't suppose to show. I've put a color code into the td's now to see if that will make a difference.

I think I fixed the lower ticker box as it should be centered & that expand box should be gone now.

Thank-you very much. :)

Thank-you. I'll change that right away.

Thank-you everyone for all your help :)

expand box is still there- but I can see it's for the CA amber alerts. Us alerts box is still Right aligned in netscape7- try adding quotes around center so it looks like this in all instances align="center". Not really sure why that's happening.

borders are still showing in Netscape as well. Only way to get rid of them so this displays equally between browsers is to make your table border="0". When I work with tables I usually keep borders until ready to publish. A border makes the cells easier to see when placing content.

Okay,it's taken me 2 days to try & figure this out. When I put borders around everything,for some reason,the whole thing was all aligned to the left.I tried everything I could think of & finally put another table in for everything under my banner to get everything lined up. There is no table border on that one so hopefully no borders show & everything should line up.

Are there borders around everything on this page as well?
If there are I'll have do the second table with no borders there as well.
Thanks for the help ^_^

the amber alert still shows two times in IE and..
the expand in the first code when viewing with netscape still shows...
you don't need the two codes that your using...I have used amber alert and it only needs this one code, so remove the first code and leave the second one...
here is all you need:

<!-- Begin Code Amber Ticker code. -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2" src="http://www.codeamber.org/js/codea.js">
<!-- end of Code Amber Ticker code (c)Copyright codeamber.org 2002, 2003, 2004-->

sorry to dwell in your code...LOL

both your codes together the way you have it, has a conflict in netscape and it shows two times in IE...

I tried it with the code I show below and this may be what you want.....
this code works in netscape and shows the expand but the ticker is very slow.....
the ticker does work in IE very well but with no expand option

but still only use one... here is all you would need if you want netscape to see it as expand with a slow ticker, and in IE will be a ticker....this code does show canada in this ....but the link to amber alert is the same for both codes:

<!-- Begin Code Amber Ticker code. -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript1.2" src="http://www.codeamber.org/js/cacodea.js">
<!-- end of Code Amber Ticker code (c)Copyright codeamber.org 2002, 2003, 2004-->

mamagoo-I think one is a Canadian amber alert and the other for the US. The 'expand' one is the CA one I think.

Borders are gone and everything looks lined up- except for the US amber alert which is still right aligned for some reason even though I see centering code for it. Probably something small in your code maybe to do with your table or the cell the alert is in. I see a few instances of empty paragraphs and triple font tags toward the bottom of the page. Might be a missing tag somewhere but honestly, rest of display looks good enough to me. You might want to run your code through an html validator, though. There is an online one at watson.addy.com

Thanks mamagoo but cw is right. I wanted both tickers on as one is Canadian & the other one is US. Never occured to me that somebody would wonder why I have 2 on there. I'll have to go back & give a short explanation for them.
Neither one of them show the allerts for both countries.

Thanks cw. I'll go back & check my code again. I'll try the html validator as well.
