@daniel, I've had my fair share of doing that kind of thing, namely tracking, incrementing and de-incrementing at the appropriate time inside a dynamic width area..... In python.Code:
Haha, I do that sort of thing all the time!Quote:

a four year old with a crayon can go a long way with connect the dots Daniel :p
But a crayon made of HTML?!
(As the day goes on, my thoughts are becoming less and less coherent. Back to debugging...)
Edit: now I just changed a few things that weren't working, then they didn't work, so I changed them back. And now it works.... wonderful! And just as confusing as before. But it works (part of it anyway). I might have changed a <= to a < or something like that. Alright...
I can do you a css crayon? :p
The new way for kids to learn HTML... think of the potential!Quote:

Can anyone actually make a crayon with css? (it has to have stripes and be pointy).
read the thread about diagonal lines :P
My random thought of the day: web design is so much easier with the web. That is, when I'm doing any kind of web design, I'm always using the web to research it and look up new techniques/functions/etc. If we were to be doing web design without the web (I have no idea why we would be) it would be much harder.... haha :)
It's like circular logic! But the good kind.
I guess there is a real-life example, though-- anyone who was a programmer in the '80s-- trying to write code without any way to talk to others about what's going on or to look up similar problems others have had. Your best tool would be a couple books. Scary thought!
Sounds like being asked to write code with a pencil and paper with no notes!
(If any programming instructors are reading this thread, I forbid you to use that idea on your students!!)
