Re: CSS/XHTML Resources

Here's a good link I came over the other day: http://flumpcakes.co.uk/css/optimiser/

That script optimizes your style sheets and saves quite a few bytes. Just remember to add the @imports and IE fixes that's "commented out" back in after the optimizing. You know, parts like:

/* IEWin Font Size only - to allow IEWin to zoom. Do not remove comments \*/
* HTML .pun {FONT-SIZE: 78.75%}
/* End IE Win Font Size */

It's a *lot* faster than optimizing by hand, seeing as I usually strip out every comment and whitespace possible.

Re: CSS/XHTML Resources

That were nice links to learn CSS/XHTML , but I used prefer w3school to learn these languages. Still is was very useful recommendation by you. Op yes there is a HTML code to protect your code or block the visitors to view your code. You can place this code any where in to your HTML code:

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" ondragstart="return false" onselectstart="return false">

ondragstart and onselectstart will not allow the user to even view your code then there is no question to copy it. I hope this will help you.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Re: CSS/XHTML Resources

Speaking about CSS/HTML, I think a good guide has been forgotten:

This is the ultimate resource about this subject, because knowing a language is good, but use it correctly is another piece of cake!
