No high five
I have been putting HTML on the web as a hobbyist for about 20 years. I’ve always subscribed to the philosophy that content is more important than presentation, although I try not to go too far with the ‘presentation doesn’t matter’ attitude. And HTML4 does what I want to do.
My better half is trying to embrace HTML5, because that’s ‘progress’. And yet, desultory reading, and a challenge thrown down in what seems to be a good ‘how to do CSS/HTML5’ forum, has failed to turn up the answer to the following question: if HTML 5 is so wonderful, why is it so hard to do something simple in it?
All I want is HTML to put some text on the screen, which will flow nicely as users resize the window they’re using, which I see as their right. And I want some images on the page, which will resize as the window frame is changed. How hard can it be? Tom
