in thread PM Stylesheet on local filesystem? WORKS!


I had a hard time deciding whether to ++ this node or not.

Clearly, the specified file: URI tells the web browser to read the file from its local hard drive, not from a remote server. But your example of a good test case for CSS is spot on (simple and obvious!). These two came up to a draw.

Ultimately, your signature line won me over, so ++! (For some reason at work, my rxvt windows keep losing echo, usually when breaking out of a command | more pipeline, and I have to type stty echo to correct it.)

    yeah...pesky terminals. whenever i used to setup sun servers, it's a pain to type it correctly each time, before you finally get an OS and some sane terminal settings. before that setting, you can't use the backspace key, so need to type perfectly. this is on actual hardware terminal attached to server
    the new browser feature for overriding site stylesheets is implemented directly in the browser, and works perfectly/logically to override all styles on target website, whether they be css or inline html styles..and inline styles have high precedence normally. applying the styles at browser level allows to override all styles.
    try "command | less"...might work better, as "less" is more terminal aware.
    the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H
