What are some well-known sites who have scaled back their Flash use? I can think of flickr and mint.com, both of which started with much more of a reliance on Flash and then scaled back to having some Flash components on an otherwise XHTML-driven site.

I seem to have hit a bit of a brick wall in approximating W3C XHTML standards compliance on my website. From what I've read, XHTML should be served with content type application/xhtml+xml, rather than text/html, and recent versions of Microsoft and Mozilla browsers should support serving them as such. Well, they aren't. [more inside]

CSS Absolute / relative positioning problem. In designing a course website which has to validate as XHTML (Strict or Transitional), I've come up against a problem with an image. I want the image to remain in the right hand div but resize gracefully. My problem is that the trowel image either interferes with the header (is too high) but IS able to move with the page or doesn't interfere with anything but won't resize with the page! [more inside]

I'd like to learn more about Cascading Stylesheets, but there are so many resources related to CSS - so I simply do not know where to begin. Sometimes there is too much, sometimes there isn't enough. Therefore I'd like to ask, which resources would you recommend as the most useful and ultimate web-sites related to CSS? [more inside]

I'm planning to move from Blogger to WordPress, migrating about 1,000 posts that currently validate as HTML 4.01 Transitional. I'd like to convert them to XHTML on the way. What's the smart way to do this?

Blogspot automagically codes line breaks in XHTML form, so I'm trying to get my site to validate as XHTML 1.0. Parts of it fail to validate, but they're all parts that expand from strings in the Blogger template. What am I doing wrong? How do I get these parts to validate? [more inside]

Strange CSS problem with my departmental website when using cookies to set text sizes. On any font size but the standard, content is (correctly) centered. Using the standard size, content is left-justified. Both XHTML and CSS* validate. This is killing me. [more inside]

CSSFilter: I'm a long-time Web wonk looking to become a CSS maven - my next gig is the development and implementation of a completely modern, table-less design for a fairly big company.
What learning resources out there (on the Web, in print, or otherwise) are the best for someone looking to master the techniques espoused by places like the CSS Zen Garden? What new tools should I consider using? One thing I'm having trouble with in particular: how does the designer mock up a fully CSS/XHTML design? It seems more counterintuitive than the old process of design -> cut-up into table-based layout.

How do you ensure consistent yet accesible font sizes across platforms using CSS?
I have a site where I set the SIZE attribute of the BODY tag to 80%, and then set all the other font sizes using ems, which in theory should give me consistent fonts while allowing people to change the font size (which is why I don't just use pixels for the whole thing).
Unfortunately, in IE 5, this results in way too large fonts.
What's your method?

I want to believe in XHTML/CSS. I want my structure entirely separate from my layout. But I also think it might all be a big lie, and not because of browser difficulties. Please help clear my misunderstanding. Further explanation - your people call it "more" - is inside. [more inside]

I have a web page that is valid XHTML 1.1 when I upload it to the w3c validator. However, when I link to the 'check referrer' validator from it, I get "I was not able to extract a character encoding labeling from any of the valid sources for such information". Does anyone have any idea what the problem is here?

Library/information science question(s): My code-fearful friend succeeded in getting through library school without exposure to more than basic HTML. I now have him on a diet of Dreamweaver and XHTML, with a sprinkling of GoLive. He's wondering about next steps: for someone who wants to be well-equipped to work in an academic, medical, legal, or similar library or archive (with web development as part of his job, rather than the focus of it), what scripting language(s) and/or content-management systems are most important to learn? Is the library world fragmented in this regard, or is there a dominant technology? What would be a logical entry vector into this world for someone without a comp-sci bone in his body (in terms of languages/systems, and specific learning resources)?[no more inside]

For some unknown reason, my validating XHTML and CSS is totally broken in MSIE 6.0.. the text doesn't always appear, and will only show up if you minimize the browser and maximize it, or if you scroll down and then back up. This problem is driving me batty! I checked the css-discuss wiki and archives for answers, but no joy.
