align="absmiddle" or align="absbottom" not validate in W3C Markup Validator

Normally we will use align="absmiddle" to make an image align in the middle between a HTML element/object, e.g:

< input name="text1" type="text" maxlength="17">< src="button_ok.gif'" alt="OK" style="margin-bottom:1px;" align="absmiddle">
<img src="images/icon_diamond.gif" alt="" align="absbottom">

You will get error when you try to validate your page with W3C Markup Validator (http://validator.w3.org/check).

How to solve?

Use this:

<img src="images/icon_diamond.gif" alt="" style="vertical-align:bottom">

Same to:

<img src="images/icon_diamond.gif" alt="" style="vertical-align:middle">

Div height problem in IE

The following, as the only content in a file, is the requested 5px high in Mozilla and Opera, but 12px high in IE (5.0, 6.0 & 7.o):

<div class="dot" style="height:1px; border:1px solid red;"></div>

Divs in IE have a minimum height when the <div> is empty. There is a couple of ways to solve this:
1) Put a comment tag inside the div:
<div class="dot" style="height:1px; border:1px solid red;"><!-- --></div>

2) Add this to its style inside the div:
<div class="dot" style="font-size:2px; height:2px; border:1px solid red;"></div>

How to speed up my Window XP (1) - Indexing.

Windows XP keeps a record of all files on the hard disk so when you do a search on the hard drive it is faster. There is a downside to this and because the computer has to index all files, it will slow down normal file commands like open, close, etc.
If you do not do a whole lot of searches on your hard drive then I suggest turnning this feature off:
1. Control Panel
2. Administrative Tools
3. Services
4. Disable Indexing Services

Javascript : location.href problem in FireFox

The location.href is working fine in IE(Internet Explorer), but not in FireFox or Safari. There are two solutions :

1) Use location.replace('http://www.theURL.com')
- The replace method loads the specified URL over the current history entry, it meant after the replace method is used, the user cannot navigate to the previous URL by using browser's Back button.

2) Use window.location= 'http://www.theURL.com'; return false;
- It will allow you to navigate to the previous URL by using browser's Back button.

<td onclick="window.location='http://www.yahoo.com'; return false;" style="cursor: pointer;">

3) Another solution provided by reader (updated 10/08/2009):
- Use location.href= 'http://www.theURL.com';

歇後語 05 - 老公撥扇, 老婆擔遮

老公撥扇 ─ ─ 淒涼(妻涼)。

老婆擔遮 ─ ─ 陰功(陰公)。

老公撥扇, 老婆擔遮; 兩個都係可憐嘅意思 。

老公向老婆(妻子)就很涼爽, 所以就取其諧音, “妻”涼==淒涼。

老婆擔遮,擔即係攞住/拿住, 遮即係雨傘,擔遮即係攞住把傘。老婆擔遮幫老公遮太陽,老公陰涼。乜嘢係“陰功”?唔係‘冬陰功’,原意係迷信嘅人認爲,當人在世時做咗好事,嚮陰間可以記功,叫做“陰功”,做咗壞事嘅就叫做“冇陰功”。依家“冇陰功”省略叫做‘陰功’,係‘無天理’,‘殘忍’嘅意思。

歇後語 01 - 二打六

“二打六”即係二加上六等於八,中國人以十為圓滿,“十全十美”、“斤兩十足”; 有話 “八”即唔夠一斤,一斤=十六兩,半斤=八兩。所以“二打六”係未夠班,唔夠資格!所以二打六係用0黎形容無關重要嘅角色及人物。

p/s :響中國大陸用嘅係市斤,一斤係500公克, 響馬來西亞/台灣/香港用嘅是臺(台)斤,1斤係600公克。 但係有D地方都亂曬大籠, 同一個國家有唔同嘅秤法?!因爲有公制以及市用制之分。公制:一公斤係500公克,但係一般傳統市場依然沿用市用制(臺斤)。
