Some bugs out....

Okay, I fixed what you guys mentioned.....
Paul, thanks for pointing out that tag, I changed it so much I'd forgotten about that....

Dan, I fixed the REALLY small text... it's not there anymore... It was only there because I was having problems with the image staying where I wanted it to... I think the problem has been remedied now that I fixed the tag that Paul pointed out....
I'm finally seeing what I wanted to see in the first place! *yea* What does everyone think of it now?


Screen captures are nice! :-)

Oh, and what are similar fonts to Georgia? That's what I'm currently using. I like Georgia. :-)

Unless you're making images, there are a very small ammount of serif fonts that are perfectly cross-platform. Times New Roman, Times, Courier, and Georgia are the most common. Again depending upon what people have, Book Antiqua, Bookman Old Style, Californian FB, Century, Garamond, Palatino Linotype, and Rockwell are USUALLY on most people's systems, cross-platform. I know you can specify one font for one system, and then a backup for another system, but I personally like to keep the same font for both, if I can.

And I have to disagree with thwack: Serif fonts are easier to read on screen OR in print. If you only user sans-serifs all over your page, your reader gets tired easier than if you vary it up. I DO like Verdana, though. ;)

The page looks fine on my IE6 on a PC, but it's curious that one has to scroll on the main page to get to your contact info and all, when there's really no POINT in scrolling. (at least for me, there's scrolling)

And on a personal note, I LOATHE CSS. Hate Hate HATE IT. It never does what I want it to do, especially with images. But that's just me. :P

Thanks for the font listing, dear. :-*

And CSS is really cool if you know what you are doing... there's a really good CSS tutorial on webmonkey at:


take a look, you might change your mind. :-D

Why would you use CSS for images??

I agree. Verdana is a great sans-serif, along with Univers.
Geneva is a good font I like as well. I'm a sans-serif fan myself; it is easier for me to read on screen...

Either way, however, reading off a computer monitor is nearly equivalent to reading the small print on a lightbulb. It's better suited to paper. But, we make do.

"Why would you use CSS for images?"

Well my point in that the web is a VISUAL medium. And thus graphics RULE it. And therefore if CSS isn't prone to making graphics look right (for positioning purposes), it gets on my nerves. Which it isn't, and thus it does. lol I think CSS is fine and dandy for lots of hierarchies of text . . . but for building an entire page, it's impractical. IMHO, of course. ;)

You need text to have content, and therefore, text is the most important... you can place text with about 98% accuracy with CSS.

Also, if you wrap a IMG tag in a SPAN tag, they place pretty accurately, too. :-)

CSS is my mom, dude.

That's pretty difficult to imagine. :-P

Just to clarify... I'm only against the use of serif fonts on screen when the font size is too small to be "smoothed". For the large elegant text used in titles and headings, serifs look great. But for paragraph body text where the letters are made up of hairlines, serifs are just superfluous pixels that clutter up the lines and make it difficult to read.

If the typical monitor had about 5 times the resolution so that it could accurately draw serifs at these small font sizes, my opinion of them would be different. :)

With IE:
The "Learning Grace" heading has jagged edges. The "A UNIX Tutorial" doesn't quite look like it goes with it and it is sitting really close to the top of the "L".

Your "Learning Grace" links come right up against your paragraph information ("If you are here"). Also the paragraph info starts somplace in between "Learning to Login" and "Learning to Create". Just looks kinda awkward to me. Perhaps start the paragraph info on the same line as the links start or underneath all of the links.
Also, I'm aware that the line was created to go with "Learning Grace", but maybe if it were longer, perhaps extending to the end of the paragraph info.

In Mozilla: It's basically the same. "A UNIX Tutorial" doesn't appear as close to the "L", but still looks a little misplaced. And like someone else said that scrollbar. ::shrug::

...Just a few thoughts. Dunno if it helped at all. All I know is that I need to stop editing your stuff and work on my own. 8-Þ
