My page is dedicated to the literary and visual arts: Mainly poetry and images that I find have some poetic sensibilities (which means – I liked the pictures for some strange reason).
ON THE PROCESS:
I had some difficulty with the external css. I had to reword the line:
<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”poetic.css”>
Once I did that, it worked. I went to: http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_howto.asp for help. I copied their example: <link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“mystyle.css”>. I swapped out “mystyle.css” for my more “poetic.css” and I was in business. Then I spent way too many hours changing colors and building borders. I was like a toddler with a white wall and crayons, and no adult supervision.
PS-It might not be mobile phone friendly, but it still comes up looking pretty cool (and the links work too).
You’re correct to point out my error with regard to the correct form of the link element. (Note that the order of the arguments doesn’t matter.) I’ve looked though my notes, and I really have no idea where I got ‘type=”class/css”‘ from. I can only conclude that it was a mistake I made during the live demo that went undetected because Chrome and Safari accept the construct, whereas Firefox rejects it. I’ve corrected the Manatee demo, and updated the blog post accordingly.
