Messing about with Photoshop and html

It's sooooooo hot. I'm melting. I hate hot weather. It's one of the (many) reasons I hated southern California.

So I haven't been too active today. I've been mostly sitting in front of the computer, messing around with Photoshop and html. I'm close to posting a new version of my old website, though it's all still very much under construction. Still, I might start putting up old files and just changing them to match the new layout as I have time. I could at least get the basic structure of the site set up.

I'm finding, though, that I want to do stuff I don't really know how to do. Like have mouse-over effects on my navigation bar. Like having the same nav bar appear on every page. And I'm feeling mucho baffled by cascading style sheets. I'm looking at files I created several years ago when I was designing my Spuffy site, and I'm not understanding everything. Maybe I can get Shannon to help me Monday or Tuesday night. We'll be talking about css in my Dreamweaver class, but I want to do it *now*.

But for right now, I'm fading. Sleep soon for me. I get tired so early these days! Yawn!

CSS can be confusing. On the other hand, mouseover effects are SO much easier with it - no more confusing Javascript required. Feel free to ask me questions.

Also, if you don't have it already, you want to install the Web Developer Toolbar for Firefox. http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/ It's a really helpful tool for troubleshooting web pages and analyzing other pages to see how they did something you want to do.

Thanks! Shannon knows a lot about html and css, too, so I may have questions for both of you.

I tried to download the toolbar you suggested, but it wouldn't download. When I went to the "help" section, there was nothing that addressed this problem. Argh!

Never mind about the download. I found the correct help page and its advice worked. Thank you for the recommendation: I will give it a try!
