Update Nederlog: All backgrounds in Nederlog fixed

This Nederlog is just a very brief one covering a lot of work:

All backgrounds in ALL Nederlog files from 2004 - 2011 (yes, I'm in the eighth years of writing it) have been fixed.

The "fixed" is a play on words, but quite "appropriate" (a term I strongly dislike in postmodern and PC discourse):

As the standard background for html on my site there is a blue gif file that is dark blue at the top and light blue at the bottom, since 2002 I think, when I introduced it for some backgrounds.

Presently, it's there in most cases (or should be: I am known to make mistakes), but it has a problem associated with it viz. that I made it unmovable when paging up and down, which looks much nicer than when it's movable, with a pair of html tags that does keep it fixed in MS Internet browsers - but not in Mozilla browsers, that I much prefer.

But I have now replaced it by a pair of html tags that keep it fixed in Mozilla browsers, that also work these days in MS Internet browsers, and I have done so today for ALL Nederlog files from 2004 - 2011.

It should be mostly correct, and I have done it with Notepad++, which is a free ware open source replacement of Windows' awful Notepad, that is at least several thousands of times better than the Windows awfulness it replaces so well. (Check out the link to Wikipedia in this paragraph: It may save you very much work and irritation.)

Notepad++ does many things very well, and one of these things is replacing strings in sets of files. So I have used that, with some care, and therefore I'm fairly certain that at least nearly all Nederlog html-files have their background properly fixed now.

This also means that almost all of Nederlog that is html has been uploaded again today with the new fix, but as yet without further corrections.

Eventually, it may be changed again if I start using css for my site, which I don't on a level beyond one file, but that may take a while.

As is, the Nederlogs with fixed backgrounds are a considerable visual improvement in Mozilla-browsers, and should look the same as they did before in MS Internet browsers.

I mentioned the need for doing this here, last month:

     - Things still to be done on my sites

and have decided to update that file to keep track of what I planned to do, and how far I got.

Also, this is a step in the direction of fixing the background of all html on my sites.


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