Sometime last year, a free server went down and took out thousands of free websites. Finally, the company is getting the sites put back online. I have 7 sites.
A couple years ago, I finished the huge task of converting 6 of the 7 sites to External CSS. What a job. Took at least 2 years! BUT, I was learning Ext CSS-- yay!
Website 7, though, is a large site, about 8,000 pgs, and full of photographs and tables. This is a terribly time-consuming web to convert to CSS, especially because previous owners of this site used dozens of backgrounds instead of just one and pasted in Word docs as webpages. There are MSO (Microsoft office) codes on the tables, nearly every line – MSO makes bloated unneeded code! And, the other webmasters used font codes on nearly every line! Plus very large size h codes (controls heading text sizes). Anyway, it is a mess!
I do lots of Find–Replace after identifying a piece of code that needs changed or deleted. I’ll probably be working on it the rest of the year, but I’ve made a great start to it over the months. Wish I knew Ext CSS when I was new…impossible, I know… lolol
So, what hobby do you do when not nodding? A friend of mine in the UK makes miniature towns with buildings, trains, and tiny people…
