Hi, Nick.. Thank you for your post.. I am even as I type trying to switch my own mind over to 1.1 Strict. I just suggested Transitional to Jim as an option to consider if he hadn't already. Turns out he himself is solid into 1.1 Strict. I personally enjoy it and certainly see the advantages of staying with the coding that provides the widest range of functionality.

Hopefully this question I have won't seem off topic. I am recoding my own pages as I hinted. I just found CSS3 while I was reworking my style sheets. What I saw on W3C said that CSS3, as with anything ever suggested, could one day be abandoned as not feasible/workable. Any feedback on what you think about whether or not CSS3 will indeed really be the next step to take, or is it still too shaky to apply widespread?

Thanks also for the comment on Fussy. I'd seen you all type about it on occasion but had not had time to see what it was and what it did.. I'l l have to go back and see now that you say it has that capability. Once I understand it more, maybe I can do my own little part to help promote it, too.. :o)

Have a great day!

Cindy Sue
