I need some help on just how I can specify these ENTITIES within my code and use them. I am new and cannot figure out to do this. I found these specifications (just what I need), but am lost as to how to use them.
I am trying to layout some numbers where I need 'superscripts' like ¹. etc. thru 9. If I use ... 9<sup>8</sup> then the number 8 is positioned above the 9 and my row is 'doubled'. In essence, I need to have numbers '1/2' the size of the 9. I hope I have explained what I am trying to accomplish.
Perhaps I do not understand how I can decrease the size of my font and get the numeric to line up where I would like to have it. Let us say that I wanted a smaller 3 in this example: W3C, how would one specify this? .. W<font size - 1>3</font>?. I have tried ".. 2 <small> <sup> 1/2</sup></small> " but it does not give me what I want. Using the example from your quote -- Tim Berners-Lee, W3C, instead of having the '3' at the bottom, I would like it to appear at the top and no higher than the top of the W. I know '¹' would give me what I want for a '1', however I need it for all numerics 0 thru 9 including fractionals. Not just 1/4, 1/2, 3/4. If I can solve it for one, then I can build it for all others which I need.
I have tried that and it is not being translated. I am testing my code using OPERA. (I am also learning as I go along). Perhaps you could give me an example of how you specified same and in what environment you tested. If I can get pass tis hurdle then I can continue, and complete my layout.
Maybe my prolog specifications are not complete: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
Should I replace it with this, or append it? "-//W3C//ENTITIES Latin 1//EN//HTML">
Your help is appreciated.
If I had the knowledge to understand what you are saying I would not be asking for this level of help. I ask only for a basic example and some help. I have taught myself what I know with minimal help by readin these forums, then researching, reading and trying. I am certain the answer is obvious to those who know, but for me it is monumental. All I ask for is a little help.
Thanks for the example. I will try it. My knowledge in programming was at the machine level where I interpreted what was specified in the higher language and translated that to execute the 'machine language code'. For example: To run one of your loops I may produce code of this tpe:
ic (reg1,1) // you initial loop value
sll (reg1,4) // develop # iterations
bct (*-1) // and run your loop
