Web Standards Curriculum from Opera Software

Learning Web Standards just got easier. Opera last week launched its Web Standards Curriculum (WSC), a complete course to teach you standards-based Web development, including HTML, CSS, design principles and background theory, and JavaScript basics. It already has support from many organizations (including Yahoo! and the Web Standards Project) and universities. The first 23 articles are currently available, with about 30 more to be published between now and late September.

Learn more about the Opera WSC at www.opera.com/wsc. Let us know what you think, in our Web Standards Curriculum forums (http://dev.opera.com/forums/forum/11772).

New browser!

Now this isn't another browser, that uses the IE, or FF engine. This is a totally new browser designed especially for Autistic folks.

The news article about it is here, you can DL it from the site too.

Although it'll have very very little support, I'm still going to check my pages on it. I think this is a great idea!

Problem with display in IE vs perfect display in FF

My website displays fine in Firefox, but I want it to display right in Internet Explorer.  It is http://pezgirl.com.  View the source to see the code, and the CSS style sheet for the index page is http://pezgirl.com/style.css, and for the iFrame pages it is http://pezgirl.com/pages.css.  When it is viewed in Firefox it is layed out perfectly because I designed it using Firefox.  But a lot of the audience for my page uses Internet Explorer, and doesn't even know what a browser is, so to explain to them why Firefox is better and they should download it is a bit of a pain.  I'm not sure if the display problem is in the CSS or if it is inline, but I want to know how to fix it.  Thanks ahead of time for any time you spend on this.

Moderator's welcome post

Hello all and welcome to the community : )

I have outlined the general idea behind this community on our userinfo page, but I suppose I should probably go a bit more into depth here.

This community is meant to have only one purpose, and that is to draw upon the members here to help make sure that our websites are completely accessible by anyone. I have tried to do this on my own before, but I always ended up wishing there were some place I could go and get general help from others because there are so many things I can't check for.
I would prefer it if we were to remain somewhat specialized, since there are so many different communities in which we can have discussions about web standards instead of actually testing them. So for now at least, please keep your posts on topic. I will be very stringent about this.

These rules will change as we encounter more posts and problems, of course.

I would also appreciate it if members would suggest a couple of relevant links that we could add to the links list (located to the left). I've tried to come up with a couple, but I'm sure there are a lot of great references out there that I've missed.
