Well at last I have added some space around text in those blue tables, no more images touching the side etc.

I was fiddling with cellspacing etc. but that just fucked everything up, so I eventually had the idea of putting another table inside the main cell and positioning that a couple of pixels away from the border... So there's another table in a table in a table in a..... must figure out correct CSS for this stuff!

Anyway enough HTML talk x-) Let me know if any tables look screwed up now.

Ta!

Try clicking the link. You'll then see this, including a familiar name:

Web Designer's Reference: An Integrated Approach to Web Design with XHTML and CSS  
Craig Grannell

Actually, if anyone wants a copy of this for ten quid + P&P, let me know—I've still got a small pile of author copies left. (And that, fact fans, is a saving of £24.49 on the RRP, and £14.49 on Amazon's price. Bargain!)

Oops, and there was I getting paranoid that you were all laughing at me and my design skills :oops:

Oi Mr. Zzapback! Have you not got a Tribute special to be working on instead of quoting about 50 million billion messages in a new message? :twisted:

Interesting... It seems my new web space has just gone from having 2Gb in it to 5Gb!!

That makes a "little" more room for even more scans etc. now there's limits for amount of files and hits per hour etc. but it's still pretty good!

Better get uploading more issues! (if only my DSL didn't only give me 12KB a second upload :( )

And now the bandwidth available has been increased to 10Gb a day! Nice! :)

I've been adding more scanned issues over the past couple of weeks and since yesterday I have added issues 67, 69, 70, 71 and 72

Good! Just in case The DEF Tribute ends up as a 50mb pdf. :wink:

Issue 83 thru 86 are now online as well. Too lazy to put links in this time though, so you'll have to go to the front page :-p

and 87,88 and 89.

Thankfully the standard of Zzap starts to rise again around these issues. The design is toned down a bit (as well as the rather braindead sexual innuendo), a PD column has been added, as well as Bash's adventure section and there's a fair bit in the news pages.

p.s. Where is everybody? It's very dead on here today. :(
