I say 4 out 5 questions on these (and other fora) are asked in a way that makes giving a valuable advice next to imposible. The reason is that such posts do not present THE PROBLEM, but rather a problem that was created by a solution to (a problem that was created by a solution to) THE PROBLEM. Somehow, the majority fails to see what the REAL problem that needs to be solved is.
So here is a VERY SIMPLE advice on how to find out what THE REAL PROBLEM is:
When presented with a problem, ask yourself "Why, the ****(heck) do I want to do this", and then apply the same question to the answer (repeat as needed)
Then post THE PROBLEM you came up with and what you thought of as an original problem as "here is how I thought of solving it" with a question "is there a better way".
Only then will you get a much better response in much less time.

I got the message. I appreciate your input and have taken your suggestions to heart. I am using Netscapes Composer which hides the HTML code and allows one to click and write (HTML is in the background).
Basically, i struggled for awhile and resolved the problem using a modified form of your constructs.
you have spent more time chatting about message posting guidlines than the time that is lost due to unorganised or messy posts. Please, I bid you people to step outside of your house and look around. You will be surpirsed how high resolution the world has.

Comments like these are unnecessary in the Message Posting Guidelinges, thank you.
Yes, I'm a supermoderator. I'm not an administrator, but I like to pretend that I am. I have my own little administrator cape that I like to wear while I browse the forums.
It seems like on and off some one would just post message like the one couple of messages above.
I think we can still debate that should it remain open or not,however until that decision I am closing it.
