  • FrontPage thread..

    If you see "<p class="MsoNormal">" then something was copied from Word or perhaps another Office App. FrontPage does not generate that sort of garbage code.

    yes but i chose "keep text only" and still had that stuff come into the page

    RE the what FrontPage should insert with an hr we'll have to agree to disagree because I would not use any product that inserted that sort of stuff on a simple hr.

    you are the one adding to HR ( <p> ) not me Wink. I'm saying don't add anything to it - and do away with trying to explain -shift/enter- to users so they stop making Godzilla size spaces on all the documents they make.

    ill check out topstyle lite - but still wish CSS was integrated into FP as a 5th view tab: 

    Design - Split - Code - CSS Mode - Preview 

  • What is Microsoft doing about winsock hijacking by spyware?

    that would definately do it..

    its probably not a good test case cause the machine probably couldnt handle all things starting up and running.. but im getting tired of fixing it so i actually printed that out. we'll see what it can handle Wink

    thing is for his machine - its a slow old 400 ( although Xp runs pretty snappy on it)

    The only Virus program i have is Norton 2004 - which i find to be a resourse hog even on my 3ghtz - so there was no way i was loading or it would take him literally over 5 min to boot.

    I forgot about Zone Alarm - that would probably have done it - but again: I thought SP2 had this.. I know myself i had to allow IE and outlook and MSN to access the Internet connection..

    so .. this only works for MS programs?

    ** also - re- kiosk mode. I'm not arguing your right to dislike it, just for my right to still have access to it.

    * One last comment regarding Auto - add toolbars in IE

    just as i think Full screen is great - i also like the ABILITY to add a toolbar if i CHOOSE

    in SP2 youve gone and removed the ABILITY to run fullscreen kiosk - yet &^&^% sites can still add MySearch and iSearch etc to IE.

    Why not just make SP2 not auto load toolbars and not allow auto fullscreen - but leave the functionality - if the user agrees to it

    sorry - still mad at the removal of fullscreen for LEGITIMATE - MARKED uses

    Just do it like this:

  • What is Microsoft doing about winsock hijacking by spyware?

    i have a friend for whom im defacto tech support
    - he uses his computer for 2 things: downloading porn, and downloading porn.

    His machine is always full of crap! that i have to remove and repair - SO...

    i loaded the beta of SP2 on his machine.
    i asked him to show me where he gets porn - and he said google

    I was suprised by this as google seems so do-goody.

    What he does is turn off safe search - or whatever its called - then types stuff in to find porn.

    so i said ok - do it now that you have SP2 installed - which he did.  after 5 min of "technical testing Wink i told him to stop and ran adaware and spybot ( which i had run before sp2 install)

    there were over 50 things - in five minutes - and i made sure he didnt "Agree" to any boxes that popped up.

    So basically - what good is SP2??
    just go out and buy adaware and spybot and put them in windows to run at startup

    otherwise all these "security" changes are doing nothing but inconvenience developers - as for users they dont seem to prevent even the most common of exploits : toolbars in ie, stuff loaded at start up, many tracking companies, etc etc etc.

    *Sorry if this is a bit off the winsock topic SA

  • Media Centre for regular OEM's

    well Eagle i should have called you first Wink

    Anyway - why cant MS Hardware just make its own Windows TV Convertor for 19.99 to sell to OEMs - and let media centre loose

  • FrontPage thread..

    it still adds the spaces though..
    plus stuff like: <p class="MsoNormal">

    Also - re; above - yes i wish <p> didnt even exist. Everything should be default one space- br.  you need a <p> hit enter twice.



    ps - i spend alday reconfiguring and removing horrendously HUGE spaces brought about by Autocomplete / Windows Clipboard and the default doublespace settings in all Office apps - especially FP

    * even if you dont agree on this point - you must agree that in a scenario where youve already "repaired" the spaces so they are how you like - and you copy a paragraph with a HR - it will put the spaces BACK - and you have to remove them EVERYtime

    ** and re; use CSS to insert HR - well i guess i could.. i guess i could also use notepad to design the whole site..  but i use frontpage cause its FAST to do stuff - css is NOT fast as FP only pays lip service to it ( ie; display) not CSS view - first request in this thread.

    So when i click - Insert / Horizontal line - FP should put:

    hr {font-size: 1px; height: 1px color: #FF0000; margin: 0; padding: 0;}

    as cheryl describes above - NOT make me TYPE it Wink

  • FrontPage thread..

    i am unable to duplicate the error i describe - it does indeed look like 2003 has fixed this.

    it's just i remember running into it recently - but now i cant find the item it ignored so - disregard that request for now

    ( the search and replace is almost worth the upgrade price alone)

  • FrontPage thread..

    One of the best things Frontpage does is allow you to view includes easily / graphically and right click to edit.

    This is my favourite feature of FP - but one that many times I am not allowed ( by clients ) to use.

    I request that instead of the include tag:

    <!--webbot bot="Include" U-Include="header.htm" TAG="BODY" -->

    is there a way you could use a NON proprietary way of doing this - so my clients can edit with anything - but me using FP - get the added ease of the way you currently display the bots.

    I dont have the code handy - but perhaps allowing FP to read javascript clientside includes - the same way it views the webbot tag..

    so you'd have something like:

    <script language javascript src: "header.htm></script>
    (* above is wrong - but you know the call i mean)

    This way it's compatible with everything - just make FP display it graphically ( not a little J icon)

    thanks in advance

    ** ASP includes are not a workaround for me  - still need clientside - not server side for includes

    ** oh yeah - please do the same thing for ASP as well .. - so if ive got <%include header%> - it will display like a webbot ( with right click edit in new window)

    that would make building component based sites real easy to edit


    test from different machine.. seems to be fine

    perhaps SP2 did something to main machine..
    bah! format time

    anyone have a non format workaround?
    ive deleted cache / cookies etc

    just dont no what could cause a single website to error when others dont..
