that's cool you figured it out, I took an html class awhile back, seems there's a lot more
ways to solve problems now.
I may have to check it out if I have any spare time someday :undecided:


I think HTML/CSS is less forgiving than printing. :sad:

Yes. One missing or wrong character and everything breaks. I have sent many jobs off to press that were missing an exclamation point here & there (because they're endangered) and the job still printed!

My first computer in 1985 didn't even have an OS. I couldn't even find my home folder. I hate coding as much as I hate cost accounting or shopping for insurance ffs

Now you can see why I went over the edge and am on the ledge...looks like Joe is now following the same painful path. Who knows what may happen. :scared:

In good news, today I received garbled news that I'm going to be relieved of my freelance webdev projects. This is a blessing. One step closer to dropping out!

I like doing it. Unlike print, people actually do care what their web sites look like. And there is some intellectual challenge to it too. Not the drudgery of preflighting PDF's. If I could, I'd get out of print completely. Today. If not sooner.

Herding and babysitting PDFs is not my idea of prepress either Joe... at least not the prepress I fell in love with those years ago. The acceptable quality level today is crap!
Meanwhile back at the ranch all is well.

I've inherited this code from a previous developer:

Code: [Select]
<img src="http://www.somesite.com/header.jpg" alt="Lamp" width="85%" height="85%" />



The intent there is to have the image be at 85% of the size of the site and the image dynamically scales proportionately if the user resizes the window...all the way down to fit on the iPhone/iPad. It works in Firefox but freaking Safari butchers it to death. I need to to work in all browsers. Anyone know how to accomplish this either via html or CSS?


There is a new Safari patch. Maybe it was a bug and they fixed it.

It appears that only the Intel macs got a Safari upgrade to 5.0. The PowerPC's are still on 4.1.1, so probably no help, sorry.

Actually, Safari was doing exactly what it was told. It made it 85% of the width AND 85% of the height. Firefox knew that was wrong and read my mind for what I really wanted. It scaled the width by 85% and scaled the height proportionately. Removing the height tag and they both then scaled it the way I needed it. Like Firefox did it in the first place.
