Q&A

Q1:Most Web pages I've seen on the Internet use <center> instead of <div align="center">. Should I be using <center> to make sure my pages are compatible with older Web browsers?
A1: For maximum compatibility, you might prefer to use both the obsolete <center> tag and the new <div align="center"> tag, like this: <div align="center"> <center>. This text will be centered in both old and new browsers. Don't forget to end the centered section with </center></div>.
Q2:I used <ul type="square">, but the bullets came out round, not square.
A2: Are you using Netscape Navigator 2 or higher or Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 or higher? Alternate bullet types don't show up in any other Web browsers yet.
Q3:I've seen pages on the Internet that use three-dimensional little balls or other special graphics for bullets. How do they do that?
A3: That trick is a little bit beyond what this chapter covers. You'll find out how to do it yourself at the end of Chapter 10, "Putting Graphics on a Web Page."
Q4:How do I "full justify" text, so that both the left and right margins are flush?
A4: You don't. HTML 4 does not support full-justified text. You will be able to full- justify text in the future using style sheets (see Hour 16), although that feature of the style sheet standard isn't supported by any current Web browser.
