  • Authoring App Shoots Down It's Own Code?

    You know...I created a form for my community's website in Dreamweaver MX.

    Then I validate the code; & Dreamweaver tells me the code it wrote is no good!

    For god's sake...am I stupid, or is Dreamweaver just illiterate?

    Anyway...here are the tags that are really, really, really, really bad (& I should be ashamed of myself for having allowed Dreamweaver to write them behind my back...honest to god...what a dumba_ s system.) (actually...never mind all that rant. I'm just hoping someone in the forum can help me fix the code.):

    1) In HTML 4.0, FONT is depreciated; & may become obsolete in the future. Consider using style sheets instead.

    2) The tag: "textarea" does not contain an attribute: "wrap" in currently active versions.

    Can someone help me deal with these?

    OK...I ran across the following style example for repairing my code (relative to unvalidated font tags):


    <style type="text/css">
    h1 {font-size: 100%}
    h2 {font-size: 125%}
    h3 {font-size: 150%}


    <h1>This is 100%</h1>
    <h2><em>This is 125%</em></h2>
    <h3>This is 150%</h3>


    It works great in my Authoring app (Dreamweaver); & my code is now valid where applied...but I was wondering:

    The app normally applies font sizes in numbers (-7 to +7) as opposed to points (10, 12, 14, etc.) Is there a cross reference available which would give me relative font sizes across designations (from numbers to points to percentages)?

      I couldn't find the conversion rate. I did however, find this site that lists the measurement types and their equivalents.
