HTML & CSS Stuff

Since I had to learn HTML and CSS to create this web site and a couple of others that I maintain, I thought it would be good to pass along some hints and tips on how to do this.

My plan is to have useful information, tutorials and site recommendations.

Here's a neat trick if you have a web site and you're worried about spambots finding your feedback email address. They look for email addresses that look like "mailto:" with an at sign (@). You can hide your email address by changing "mailto:" to the ampersand-hash equivalent. These are characters with a format that looks like this: "&#xxx", where xxx is the code for the character. Click on the "HTML ASCII Chart" menu item on the left to go to a little chart to help you.

So "mailto:" looks like this: mailto: You can't read that, and the spambots can't either.
