book meme

gekked from the always literary cbtreks:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that cool or intellectual book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag three people

"Today the room's bursting with reporters, family and friends of the victims, and, more than anything else, a lust for blood. The parents of the three dead boys stare at me with powerful hatred, and Lucinda Walker, Michael's mom, who've I've known since she was a grade-school student at Saint Vincent's, looks at me as if she doesn't know what to think. I cried for her last night."

(From "Beach Road", by Peter De Jong. This is where I must confess that I did this at work, while all my own books are at home -- all I had were four magazines: Writer's Digest, MacAddict, and two copies of Firehouse. So, I stole a coworkers book, instead.)

In turn, I simply tag anyone else who wants to play.

"Problem: You want to include form fields and labels on rows without using an HTML table, thereby ensuring a pure CSS-enabled layout without using any markup for presentation.

Solution: First use labels in conjunction with form fields in the markup (see Figure 5-10):

<form action="login.php method="post">
<label for="uname">Username</label>
<input type="text" name="uname" id="uname" value="" /><br />

I read boring books. lol

I suppose I should add where it came from.

The O'Reily CSS Cookbook.

Boring to people who don't have an interest in the subject, maybe ... but I've always said a day when you don't learn something is a day wasted. And learning something from books is a lot less painful than the way many of us end up learning things!

Obviously, this book contains knowledge you can use to help people who can't or don't want to wade through all the coding and do it themselves. *coughmecough*
