    Before asking for help or replying to a question.....

    Be as specific as you can when asking for help or with a general question. Post the code you are having problems with (or the relevant section of code) or post a URL to the page/code. Try and make the subject line of the question relevant to the question, ie: "Table not aligning properly".
    If your problem or question is specific to a browser list the version of the browser you are working with, simply saying Netscape or IE is much too vague to be of any real value.

    Do not post questions as "Urgent" or "Need a reply ASAP" or "HELP!!!". Its rude, obnoxious, and may delay a response to your question. Questions will be answered by whoever wishes to post a reply and whenever they wish to. Please do not abuse the forum or its members.

    All members are encouraged to answer questions posted in the forum. Even if you believe you may not be giving the best answer please feel free to post one. All questions and answers are welcome as long as they are relevant to the topic of this forum and offered in good faith. There may be more than one answer that is correct to any given question so be sure to read all the answers and choose which is best for your situation and skill level.

    Before posting a reply to a question pause for a moment to think if its really germane and relevant to the topic of the thread. There really is no need to post gratuitous comments about questions or answers. If correcting an answer posted by another member please be respectful and courteous.

    Thanks for taking the time to help us help you!

    Before you post a question, please take note of these instructions:

    1. If possible and applicable, put the object on the web so we can see it live. If not possible but still applicable, post the whole code in one code block from <!doctype ..> to </html>, stripped of all irrelevant matters. Replace any relative urls with absolute urls, also in the head and in the style block.
    2. See if your code is basically sound by running it through the W3 Validator.
    3. Enclose any code you post in code tags (the buttons over the form with the # and <>).
    4. Don't over-ask. We will help you with all your problems. If you have multiple problems and a crash course in html/css doesn't solve the problem, start multiple threads.
    5. Try to write proper English in proper sentences. Use your/a spelling checker or Google's translation service if necessary. Use capital letters and punctuation marks where called for lest we think that you will be a sloppy coder as well, hardly worth helping.
    6. Give a clear description of your problem, also in the title (not: 'Urgent!' or 'Need help!'). Do not use exclamation marks or all capital letters for your title!
    7. No phony problems just to plant links to your website! Your message will be removed!
    8. As a matter of common courtesy, please report back how suggestions worked out.

    Welcome to the forum!
