HTML FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) List

This notice is posted about every week. I'll endeavor to use the same
subject line so that those of you who have seen it can kill-file the
subject; additionally, Supersedes: headers are used to ensure that
only one copy resides on a given news server.

This notice was last updated on March 9th, 2005, and is available
(with a complete revision history) on the World Wide Web at
http://www.stack.nl/~boris/HTML/ciwahfaq.html. Most of it was written
by Stan Brown.

Covered subjects

1. What may I ask about here?
2. What and where is the FAQ list?
3. What should I ask elsewhere?
4. What HTML tutorials and references are available?
5. What is usenet? What is netiquette?

1. What may I ask about here?

In general, HTML. This is (or is supposed to be) a narrowly focused
newsgroup that covers just one of the facets of Web authorship. For
related areas, see number 3 below.

c.i.w.a.h.'s charter is:

This newsgroup covers discussion of HyperText Markup Language
(HTML) as it relates to web page authoring. Possible subjects
include HTML editors, formatting tricks, and current and proposed
HTML standards.

The charter may be retrieved from
* ftp://ftp.uu.net/usenet/control/comp...s.www.authorin
* ftp://ftp.isc.org/pub/usenet/control...ystems.www.aut

2. What and where is the FAQ list?

The FAQ list for any newsgroup is the distilled wisdom of experts in
the subject area of that newsgroup, who have more or less agreed on a
set of answers to the questions that are frequently asked there.

Frequently Asked Question(s)

FAQ List
list of FAQs.

Before you post a question, please read the nearest thing we've got to
a newsgroup FAQ, which is the Web Design Group's Web Authoring FAQ,
* http://www.htmlhelp.org/faq/html/ (HTML version)
* http://www.htmlhelp.org/faq/html/all.html (HTML version, single
* http://www.htmlhelp.org/faq/html/all.txt (plain text version,
single file)

along with the Frequently Encountered Problems list at
* http://www.htmlhelp.org/faq/fep/

If you do that, you may find that you've answered your question with
no need to post (and no confusion from well-meaning wrong answers).

If the main site (either "http://www.htmlhelp.or g/" or
"http://www.htmlhelp.co m/") is down, you migh consider using the
mirrors at "http://www.stack.nl/htmlhelp/" and
"http://htmlhelp.inet.t ele.dk/".)

3. What should I ask elsewhere?

* General Web questions or questions about CGI and images: post in
one of the groups
+ comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.cgi
+ comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.images
+ comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.site-design
+ comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.stylesheets
+ comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.tools
+ comp.infosystem s.www.authoring.misc
+ microsoft.publi c.inetserver.ii s.activeserverp ages
(Look for an FAQ list before posting.)
* Questions about javascript: post in comp.lang.javas cript.
Java questions can go in one of the many comp.lang.java. *
newsgroups. (Look for an FAQ list before posting.)
* Questions about operation of your favorite browser: post in the
browser group for your operating system:
+ comp.infosystem s.www.browsers.mac
+ comp.infosystem s.www.browsers.ms-windows
+ comp.infosystem s.www.browsers.x
+ comp.infosystem s.www.browsers.misc
(Look for an FAQ list before posting.)

4. What HTML tutorials and references are available?

Many people maintain links to helpful resources for HTML authors.
You'll find my list (originally by Stan Brown) at

5. What is usenet? What is netiquette?

Please subscribe to news.announce.n ewusers for a month or so. It's a
low-volume newsgroup, but will well repay your time. The articles
there explain how to get the best use out of Usenet news, how to post,
rules of "netiquette ", and so on. If you do not feel up to that, ar
least read RFC 1855 (http://www.faqs.org/rfc/rfc1855.txt), which also
explains netiquette.

Questions about your particular newsreader software should be posted
to news.software.r eaders or alt.usenet.offl ine-reader. Questions about
Usenet, newsgroups, and netiquette can be posted to
news.newusers.q uestions after you read the material in
news.announce.n ewusers.
