me+ME: Improved formatting of Nederlog - 3

“Vanitas vanitatum, omnia vanitas”
“Vanity, vanity, all is vanity.”
  – Ecclesiastes 1:2.

I have spend rather a lot of time, energy and pain through the last two week to straighten out both what Nederlog looks like and the qualities of the html by which it does so.

Indeed, I have gone so far as hauling the file of May 27 some 10 times through is the result, so I was informed, of my troubles in some ME IE8 browsers, here displayed as an image, FYI, that when clicked leads to the file:


And here it is as rendered by both the latest Firefox and the latest Seamonkey, again displayed as an image, as before, indeed as intended, as you'll see - if you use a Mozilla browser, at least:

So... since the visible differences are not supposed to be there according to the WC3-htm-validation - which is to say, specificically
  • The arrow keys should be to the right, and were set to the right
  • The title "Nederlog" should be in the middle, and was set in the middle
  • The small table with the quotation should be to the right and was set there
... I may give up this nonsense, that causes so much pain and irritation for so little rational yield. I can think of fairly plausible explanations, and it may not even be all MS IE8's doings, but I don't have the health for keeping up with or straightening out these stupid differences.

This file only serves to notify my readers I have seen the differences, and do lack the health and the inclination to try to straighten them out, having but one life, and bad health, and that for the moment I will do less unpleasant and less distasteful things than trying to battle with browsers and editors to get some manner of uniformity in display, or indeed some conformity to the specifications as laid down by WC3 and the result as displayed.

Anyway... FWIW, the present Nederlog has been written in Seamonkey's Composer, that is good. (And Seamonkey, by the way, is a Mozilla-browser that has more facilities than Firefox, including a mail-client and a html-composer, and is also a fine browser.)

And maybe there will be some Gibbon later on today, but I don't know yet.

Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.
