Hi Janine, I got your Total Training for DW8 probably around 2007 and I really didn’t spend much time watching it. The only thing I did with DW was create part of a site for someone, using tables, before she finished it herself by using a simple program for non-designers, and for practice, I replicated […]Read More
How do you insert audio files into a web page and where can you host audio files online?
Many people who want to host audio on their sites are surprised that it’s harder than hosting video. If you’re not careful, audio inserted incorrectly won’t play at all in most web browsers, or worse, your audio file will play automatically and there is no way to turn it off. Worse still, multiple audio files playing simultaneously. […]Read More dwcs3, dwcs4, dwcs5, dwcs6, web design, web hosting, wordpress
Why do my web pages look different in Internet Explorer than in other browsers?
Unfortunately, different web browsers display text and HTML differently, and Internet Explorer is one of the worst, and most notorious, for bad code display (especially older versions of IE).

Why is the CSS in templates from ThemeForest and Woo Themes so complicated and hard to understand?
One of the things that makes it hard to ‘get’ the hierarchy or specificity of CSS that was written by someone else is that there are so many different ways to write CSS. I sometimes compare it to the art of writing prose. Not everyone who has learned to spell and understands the basics of grammar, can […]Read More css, dwcs4, dwcs5, dwcs6, wordpress
How do I remove Skype formatting from phone numbers on my web pages on my websites?
Skype automatically highlights any phone numbers displayed in a web browser to make it easy to ‘click to call’ the numbers. Just because you see this formatting on your computer, doesn’t mean other people see it. Skype formatting on phone numbers is specific to each person’s computer, not to the general formatting of a web […]Read More dwcs4, dwcs5, dwcs6
