    Hi Bob,

    Great videos, I also watched the CSS3 and HTML5 videos, and starting with CSS3 I am using Microsoft Expression Web 4 and when I opened this .html file(C9JS_15.html) from the source code, in the second <p> with the name="mySecondPara".. below on the window it gives me an error and when I hover over it, I get the message: "" In HTML5 the attribute 'name' is not permitted for the <p> tag. ""... Anyhow it does not prevents me from following up the course and previewing the work and changes I do. I would like to mention that I am using IE7 and Mozzila. Smiley

    @emperor05: Yes, you are right ... <p> does NOT allow for a name attribute.  I should have used id instead.  Nice catch!

    Here's how I investigated it.  I searched for:

    HTML5 p element w3c.org

    And I found this:

    http://www.w3.org/TR/html-markup/p.html

    ... Name was not listed, but saw that there are global attributes that all elements support ...

     http://www.w3.org/TR/html-markup/global-attributes.html

    ... and I was surprised Name was not on this list either.  Wow, learn something new every day.  I thought it was a global attribute.  Oh well...  sorry!

    I love this series on Jquery and I love Channel 9. Microsoft has really come a long way!

    @starforce: Glad you like the series!  Be sure to read through the comments below each video ... there's a spot or two where jQuery 2.0 (recently released) deprecated some of the methods I was teaching / relying on.  There's usually a good alternative, but just wanted to give a "heads up" nonetheless.  Smiley

    Hi Bob,

    Is there a global rule where one can remember when they are seeing a zero-based operation vs a 1 based operation? the even vs odd selector in lesson 15 gives essentially the opposite and I can imagine this being extremely confusing down the road
