    surround your text with <pre></pre>


    Thought for the day:
    why does everyone who wants us to look at their code, put a no--right-click script on their page?

    Daisy-wheel art?

    Does anyone else have the feeling there are more elegant ways to achieve a similar effect then by using preformatted text? Oh well, maybe he's into that good ol' daisy-wheel printer effect...

    Tables 'n divs?

    Kurupt!oN,

    well, again if you aim for that old style printer effect, no, but if it's boxes connected with lines you look for you might think about using a table to format your pages into the desired areas and putting divs into the appropriate table cells to create content areas. Setting borders for these divs will create the boxy effect.
    Then, you can use gifs to create the connecting lines.
    Alternatively, you might use CSS positioning for laying out the boxes, but keeping in mind the less-than-perfect browser support for CSS2, i'd play safe and use tables.

    If this doesn't make any sense, please reply and i'll try to make an example page.
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    Why bother putting a no right click script in when you can just go to view > view source...

    i have no clue what you are talking about.....i mean i understand tables, but i don't want to use tables.....i kind of want my little pre-text thing. but i thought you meant there's a program for this.


    also...my forum doesn't work!! i don't know why.

    go to http://www27.brinkster.com/alphakenny1/message.html

    click on "tag it" and just fill in whatever and click "tag it"


    it leads to an error....gay stuff i tell ya!

    Waddayamean, no help?!!

    Kurupt!On,

    Joh6nn told you how to achieve the desired effect: by using the pre element. Concerning the forum: what doesn't work about it? I didn't see anything unusual.

    Because a solution to the original problem of this thread has been posted and discussion is leading off-topic, I'll close the thread.

    When Kurupt!oN figures out his/her problem, he'll/she'll post a new topic, ok?
