    I am using Internet Explorer number 7
    I am having a problem with inserting a code for Windows Movie Maker into a
    web page. It works with one web page and not another. Here is the code that
    the wmv works with: (sorry for the lengthy piece) at bottom of this message
    is the code that does NOT work.

    So you've told us in another thread, so why did you start another?

    ><!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">


    [huge snip of pointless code]

    I see that you also ignored the request to supply two URLs, one to a
    "non working" and another to a working example. Instead you dumped a
    large amount of useless code here, don't.

    I was told not to top post and I thought I needed to start a new message to
    avoid that mistake, sorry,
    I sent the page that was working and the page that was not working. As
    instructed (so I thought) ..I guess that I am not smart enough for your
    newsgroup...sorry, Dick Ross

    Top-posting is typing your reply *above* (on top of) the quoted
    material. It reads like this:

    open the front cover and begin reading there?
    the back cover and end up at the front or do you
    chapter one or do you start somewhere near
    When reading a book, do you start at

    Feel free to press the PageDown key before beginning your reply. Trim
    the quote of unnecessary bits (except attributes) as well.

    Inline posting/replying, as I am doing here, is best.

    > I sent the page that was working and the page that was not working. As
    > instructed (so I thought)


    You copied in the page code. It is far better to put it on your web
    server and post only the URL to the page(s) here in your post. That way
    we don't *all* have to create a page of our own, probably missing your
    images and other bits, and possible errors/omissions you may have
    included by copying.

    Most all the technical groups frown on top-posting.

    Dick, just think about which makes more sense:

    Question: Is it Friday?
    Answer: Yes

    or

    Answer: Yes
    Question: Is it Friday?
    (which is how you are doing it)

    You should snip the bits you don't want to reply to, and insert your answers
    after the bits you do - as you will see most people doing. It makes it
    easier for everyone to read and is the convention on this group at least.

    Also, posting huge amounts of code means that everyone who is willing to
    answer your question has to copy and paste it into a text editor, upload it
    somewhere and look at it. If you post a link to a working (or non-working)
    page, everyone can look at much more easily and you will (or may) get much
    more help.

    It isn't a question of being smart (or a lot of us wouldn't be here); it's a
    question of writing things logically and helpfully.

    It is not a matter of "not smart enough" it is more like "not
    thick-skinned enough"

    Don't be scared off by Spartanicus' seemingly harsh criticisms. He (she?)
    was not being harsh, merely straightforward. There is little room for
    emotional context on Usenet.

    No one here really cares if you top posted or posted the code wrong the
    first time. We do care if you keep on doing it after being told not to.

    And some (myself, for example) actually do care if you stop posting.
    Please don't. Now, if you turn out to be a consistently sucky poster,
    then my opinion may change (Luigi anyone?). For now, don't worry about
    it. C'mon back, now, y'hear?

    Or don't. Come to think of it, I actually don't care either way. :)
