in thread CSV or HTML?

...and the name of "a standards compliant browser" (to which to your refer) is?

I ask because I don't really believe there is such a thing.

There is only one reference browser: amaya. But you'd be a serious masochist if you actually use it :).

I'm curious what that mixed alignment setting would be: I cannot find it in my CSS3 reference.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Tux: Not the canonical reference but in http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/html3/tables.html there is this:

    Hint: You can achieve a similar effect to the above by using decimal alignment and using the DP attribute to set the alignment character to a convenient character, for example:
    <table> <tr align=decimal dp=":"> <td> name: <input name="name" size=18><br> card number: <input name="cardnum" size=18><br> expires: <input name="expires-month" size=2> / <input name="expires-year" size=2><br> telephone:<input name="phone" size=18><br> </table>
    Each line in the table is then indented so that all the colons are positioned under one another.

    And yes, Amaya is a reference browser, but that doesn't change it's incompleteness (acknowledged with respect to CSS, for example, at http://www.w3.org/Amaya/Amaya.html at the heading "Support for CSS").

    BTW, I have used it and while it sure is painful to do so, I'm not sure I'd characterize myself as a masochist. Excuse me now, while I go back to reading some nearly unintelligible nodes. :-)
