    Well, no. Its obviously possible to have a very colorful page with <font color="blue"> and the like. You can style fonts, table cells, etc. without CSS. But CSS makes things much easier, and adds tons of power, allowing you to do things you couldn't do before.
  5. I've heard a lot of great things about Dreamhost...
  6. Oh, I agree. Blinky, flashy, red-on-blue would be horrible. But its possible to looks good, load quiuckly, work in practically all environments, and be readable... all at the same time. Wikipedia, for instace. In fact, easy to use color schemes make the page easier to read, not harder.
  7. ...now all they need is a serious site makeover.
  8. Well, your gunna find that myspace sucks with the real code for websites (HTML, CSS, and so on). They use their own screwed up version. You have little control over the HTML; thats mostly their choice. But you can, as I'm sure you know, use CSS style sheets to change the way their layout looks. For the network banner and the contact box, mostly you get rid of their content (making it invisable, or making the text really small, and so on) and set a background image. For instance, I use this code for my own network banner: span.blacktext12 { visibility:visible !important; background-color:transparent; background-image:url("http://www.example.com/imagename.png"); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-position:center center; font-size:0px; letter-spacing:-0.5px; width:435px; height:75px; display:block !important; color:333333; } Obviously, this is included in the required <style type="text/css"> </style> tags. For my contact box I've got... .contactTable { width:300px !important; height:150px!important; background-image:url("http://www.example.com/imagename.png"); background-repeat:no-repeat; background-color:transparent; background-attachment:scroll; background-position:center center; padding:0px !important; } You can fidle with these things, of course. Also, if your serious about making these kinds of things, you probably want to know the basics of CSS and HTML. However, these sites show the correct way of using those codes -- like I said, myspace is screwed up. For instance, you can't include the required # in front of color values, since myspace turns that into "..". Instead, you need to include !important after it (like I have in my code). Hope that helps!

    And why would it? Large, remotly hosted avatars slow down a page, but dont use up the Pit's bandwidth.
  10. Sure enough: "%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG" (no breaks) got me a whooping 85.3%. 85.3, BTW, is wwwwwaaaaaayyyyy too specific.
  11. How, exactly, does the CSS help you? Google has a great system with Google accounts (i.e., AdSense, Gmail, etc.), though I dont know how it works. But it certainly seems to a do a great job. What you want to do is very, very complicated. First, though I think you should add sometihng for redudency -- for example, a password of "%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%" would get alot of points under your current system. Also, I wouldn't use percentages. Two reasons: first, as you say, it gives a false sense of security. Also, this is not an exact science, so people will come up with good points, like "hey! %%%%%%%%%%%% scored a 67.8, but t#2Gas46&254 scored only 66%!". Just keep it to Weak, Moderate, and Secure, perhaps.
  12. Thats a great idea. But I wonder if Jen's worked, too?
  13. Umm... that not what I said. In other words, the comment tags are used quite often in javascript - to hide the javascript from browsers that dont know what to do with it. They did, however, have the fortunate effect of also hiding it form the validator, in this case. It didnt fix the problem, it didnt make the code valid - but it did get rid of the errors.
