Where can I find archives of this group?

I was in the middle of a discussion about my page at
http://www.douglaidlaw.net/boykett/ when my computer trashed its hard
drive. I have the printout of the main reply, but I had just answered a
query about the OBJECT tag being put there only to keep a Validator happy.
I would like to know what the response was. Google groups doesn't seem to
have this group.

Doug.

Thanks. The missing piece is there.

I don't see your style sheet; it appears to be missing.

And - is the page XHTML? What is the distinction?
Google finds:
http://webdesign.about.com/cs/xhtmlxml/a/aa013100a.htm

However, properly served XHTML is unrecognized by the most common
operating system component masquerading as a browser. Use HTML 4.01
Strict.

Thanks, screen.css is in a folder created on my disk when I saved the
template page, but not among those in the zipfile downloaded with it. It
seemed strange that it was not in both.

I "learned by doing" back in the days of HTML 3, and my knowledge is way
out of date. The validator says that at least three of the old tags should
now be handled by CSS - and all were given for links to external pages. If
I could stick to HTML they would probably be correct. That is something
else that I need to watch. The doctype is set by the default template in
NVU, and any changes I make to it are scrubbed, but I can define my own
template.

BTW, there is a bugfix release of NVU, called Komposer, available from their
web site. The most obvious fix is a <closetag on the Startup Tips box.

That would be Kompozer, at: http://kompozer.net/

That is it. I have downloaded it and transferred my profile across. Too
early to say what is improved.
