View Full Version : Authoring App Shoots Down It's Own Code?

02-08-2004, 09:23 PM
You know...I created a form for my community's website in Dreamweaver MX.

Then I validate the code; & Dreamweaver tells me the code it wrote is no good!

For god's sake...am I stupid, or is Dreamweaver just illiterate?

Anyway...here are the tags that are really, really, really, really bad (& I should be ashamed of myself for having allowed Dreamweaver to write them behind my back...honest to god...what a dumba_ s system.) (actually...never mind all that rant. I'm just hoping someone in the forum can help me fix the code.):

1) In HTML 4.0, FONT is depreciated; & may become obsolete in the future. Consider using style sheets instead.

2) The tag: "textarea" does not contain an attribute: "wrap" in currently active versions.

Can someone help me deal with these?

OK...I ran across the following style example for repairing my code (relative to unvalidated font tags):


<style type="text/css">
h1 {font-size: 100%}
h2 {font-size: 125%}
h3 {font-size: 150%}


<h1>This is 100%</h1>
<h2><em>This is 125%</em></h2>
<h3>This is 150%</h3>


It works great in my Authoring app (Dreamweaver); & my code is now valid where applied...but I was wondering:

The app normally applies font sizes in numbers (-7 to +7) as opposed to points (10, 12, 14, etc.) Is there a cross reference available which would give me relative font sizes across designations (from numbers to points to percentages)?

I couldn't find the conversion rate. I did however, find this site that lists the measurement types and their equivalents.

Now, that's a nifty resource.

Thanks much,
