CSS editor in NVU tutorials

Postby one50mkg on Sat Sep 26, 2009 12:46 am

I've just started working with nvu. I'm having trouble figuring out the cascade css editor included with nvu. Is there a good tutorial anywhere for it. The help was no help at all. I'm also a little miffed that the css file that I had is now all goofy looking because I was just going to use my notebook to edit it but now that it looks all weird it's difficult to figure out. I need a tutorial quick.

You need to upgrade to Kompozer ( http://www.kompozer.net ) This is a bug-fix version of Nvu.

One area that was improved significantly was the CSS module. No wonder you are having troubles if you are still using Nvu. That's been dead in the water almost since its release! KompoZer, however, is under active development

Take a look on my site for a tutorial:

Thanks. I figured out that I needed Kompozer. It is now installed and I'm liking it much better.

If you are on a Windows computer and want to open a css file use wordpad. Notepad will not retain the css formatting, wordpad will.

To explain wink0r's post, it's because the file that KompoZer generates has UNIX style LF line endings not Windows syle CRLF line endings.

Almost any text editor Notepad is capable of correctly displaying the file. Shall I start a thread listing the one's I use. :-)
