Maybe I've missed the point of HTML (I didn't get to go listen to Bill's
talk today), but isn't the idea that it's up to the reader how HTML looks,
not the author? Alternatively - isn't that why there's those 'best viewed with a
computer and browser' graphics? Not that I'm partisan about this topic. :)
Anyways . . I'm still confused about the whole method of striping a file.
I can stripe hard disks. And I striped my car once, against the side of
a Jaguar, but the owner was really nice about it, which was only fair, you
see, since it was his fault. Honest it was.
Can someone explain what a file would actually look like, that was
thusly striped? Any info on why (not how) MS decided to implement
something similar under NT would be interesting, too.
Maybe I'm missing something - but it seems to me that if you want
two or more bits of disparate data - you stick 'em in separate files,
and keep them near each other.
