    Remove white space?
    Assuming this -
    </font>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>


    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>
    To this-
    </font>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    </td>

    Or would this be better-
    </font></td></tr> </table> </td></tr></table></td>

    Sorry to ask this question I'm not very good at coding

    I know the article was discussing a less than ideal situation, but I feel the writer should have differentiated more between "can" and "should" in the following comments.

    Alt and Title attribute:
    *As for what you should put into these tags, well the wisest choice is some keywords, although they are normally only to be used in order to describe the item to which they are assigned.*

    Comment tags:
    *These are easily created and can be filled with keywords, although please understand then I've not said spammed with keywords.*

    "Your tags should be in the form of description first, then keywords, which will yield a result similar to: <meta name="description" content="Put the description of your web page in here."> <meta name="keywords" content="place, some, comma, delimited, keywords, here">"
    The top site for one of my main keywords is #1 on all the major SE's and uses this form of meta tags

    <meta content="Put the description of your web page in herename="description" name="description">

    Does anyone know if it makes any difference which is put first, content or name?

    Well according to G, you can use the <noframes> tag to add text, even if the page isn't in frames!
    You can follow this surprise development in the thread "The Academy of Web Specialists" in http://www.ihelpyouservices.com/forums/
    It's in the Spam and Ethics forum, though I warn you it's pretty long ;-)

    Using a no frames tag on a site not built in frames is total bull **** resulting in a spam ban so there!:grin:

    That's the received wisdom Mal, but were you not also surprised by the answer from G?

    proper HTML


    the alt attribute can be used with the image tag and title attribute with the anchor tag.
    This is proper Wc3 specs.


    this is invalid HTML
    <img src="/directory/image.jpg" alt="ALT Text " title="Title Text">
