    Text formating

    I'm having truble wrighting text in layers and tables (specially in tables)

    Well actually, problem is not in wrighting but in formating.

    Is there a tutorial?

    just to give you an idea of what I'm talking about:

    "<div id="contentforum2" style="">
    This is a place where you can share your thoughts
    <br>
    with felow humans. My first idea was to make it in
    <br>
    to a music board. But now I'm thinking about some
    <br>
    more topics. Music, movies, games, poetry... etc.
    <br>
    <br>
    I will soon set up a poll for you to vote on what
    <br>
    you would like to see in the forums.

    </div>"


    now... Do i REALLY have to wright <br> and all those other things all the time? isnt there an text editor of some kind that those that for you?

    one more thing...
    when I press "Ctrl" + "scroll the roller on the mouse" = text on the (moste) websites changes size.
    How do I prevent ppl to change text size on my website??

    Thanx

    Try searching the net (or even this site) for articles on accessibility.

    In answer to your question, no, you don't have to keep including <br> tags. The browser will wrap your text appropriately if you just leave them out, just like your word processing software does.

    As well as leaving your text to wrap on its own, you should leave it to resize according to the user's preference. Remember that not everyone has a monitor or a browser just like yours, and the text size which looks great on yours might be impossibly small to read on another machine. Macs, for example, always display text much smaller than PCs, and even on the PC Netscape displays text smaller than Internet Explorer. And as for a handheld PDA or a mobile phone, well, you can imagine... Internet Explorer does allow you to fix the text size, but this is a bug (a poor implementation of the web standards - Microsoft would call it a "feature") which will hopefully be fixed in IE7.

    You can find a lot of html editor on the web. A good place to search is Download.com

    I personally suggest Macromedia Dreamweaver. I have been using it for over 4 years and I am very happy with it.

    You can go to macromedia website or you can also download it from download.com too.
