    Thanks Vincent ,
    Yes, w3schools does have some good tutorials .
    The problem is the forums there.
    There is one fellow "Ingolme" who gets pretty nasty .
    When I ask questions ,
    see : http://w3schools.invisionzone.com/in...=&fromsearch=1

    I only go there after I have exhausted all else .
    Thanks...Vernon

    And they are in many cases very much out of date!

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    w3schools is run by two guys. With the number of topics covered and assuming they work on it full time they might have the site up to date for 2013 by 2025.

    Currently there are no topics on that site that are completely up to date (except perhaps for HTML 4). Just how far out of date each topic is depends on how much the information for the topic has changed since they first wrote it. Since the HTML standard has been the same since 1997 that section is reasonably up to date (can't see any reason why they'd add info for HTML 5 when it isn't a standard yet and so much of the site is actually antiquated). The JavaScript section is particularly bad and mostly teaches how to write scripts for use with Netscape 2 and 3 and IE 3. Most of the other sections fall somewhere in between but are getting more antiquated all the time.

    If you are going to use tutorials written and maintained by one or two people then pick ones where they are dealing only with one topic and not dozens as then there is some chance that they will be able to keep it up to date.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    do you and all of us a favor: stay away from w3fools and try to forget everything you read there.

    checkout the mdn for some good tutorials and up-to-date references.

    I ran a source file containing html/css/js thru the javaScriptFormatter ,
    but it output everything as one line .
    Is that because the file is a mix of html/css/js ?
    Thanks...vm

    There's nothing wrong with w3fools - that site does a reasonable job of pointing out some of the reasons why you should avoid w3schools.
