[RawJournal] Those who use raw HTML to post onto LiveJournal...

I'm gonna post some of the common HTML/CSS tricks I've been using on my posts, under the heading [RawJournal]. (Mmm, raw, mmmmmmm... :D)

Some of them requires Text Formatting to be None.  They'll be indicated as such as applicable.

And all lessons will be hidden behind <lj-cut> tags to save eyes of those who are uninterested. :D

Note: All tricks will be as XHTML 1.1 compliant as possible.  This includes avoiding cosmetic tags some of you might be already familiar with, such as <center>, and also avoiding implicit end tags.  This will inevitably result in a more verbose HTML code; it's up to you to modify them and use deprecated HTML 4.01 shorthand constructs (such as implicit end tags).  As of right now, LiveJournal uses XHTML 1.0 Transitional DTD, which allows for deprecated HTML 4.01 constructs, so it's allowed to do so.  However, such shorthands will stop working once LiveJournal converts to XHTML 1.0 Strict DTD or XHTML 1.1, so I strongly recommend you to get used to more verbose, XHTML 1.1 compliant style from now.


Can you smell what Notepad is cooking? :D
I prefer KWrite or Bluefish.
My 'Web Design and Marketing' teacher in my senior year (less than 2 years ago), refused to teach us CSS.
She taught us the HTML 3.22 standard or something.
And thought that you could force your website to automatically send an e-mail with the following:
<form action="mailto:email@domain.tld" method="email">
<input type="hidden" value="email@domain.tld">
-- insert textboxes for from, subject, and body here --

I wonder why it always warned you and then opened up outlook express to compose a new e-mail -_-.

I cringed :(.

But back on topic. I shall be reading Mr. Blue .o/
