Sounds like monkey see, monkey do. Just my cup of tea. Thanks!

I'll be darned. For for the html-impaired like VI and me, these are the most informative 2 lines that have ever been written in SP!

Well, don't get too excited. I just did precisely this with one of Nanuls' pages - a member whose work I particularly admire. What I got caused a combination of fright and eyes-glazing-over :? Didn't help at all.

I may know what tables in html are and I can use them to centre images etc on a page but I have no idea how to use them to make a page independent of the viewer's screen size.

Think I'll just stick with my usual "This page is set up for and best viewed at a screen size of 1280 x 1024 pixels"

I forget who I first heard it from, but I've found MoapaPk's tip helpful on several occasions. Some things I've snagged from "view source" are on every page I do.

If helps to do a find and search on a word of text that you are looking for, then it is easier to extract what you are after.

BTW -- is there a way to embed html code in BBCode, so we can use non-implemented BBCode features (e.g. strikethrough)? I realize that embedding html is probably a big security issue.

I should add: when the source page comes up, hit <ctrl A> then <ctrl C>, open a blank text file, and insert the text with <ctrl V>. Then save the text file and peruse it at your leisure.
