Internet & Networking A few days ago we read about the Deli Linux, which aims to fill-in the gap of Linux distros in the 486/586 machine range by running lightweight/older applications. The disto comes with Dillo and Links as its browsers, but I bet there aren't many people who know that there is yet another very lightweight browser for GTK+ 1.2.x and it is more powerful and more memory-optimized than Dillo: Access' NetFront. Check for info and screenshots inside.

Forms. Here's a scenario:
You have a table cell, you got a lot of things in there, then you open a form, you add some widgets. If you close the form inside the cell, you WILL get about 10 pixels of empty space by IE. Most of the time, that extra 10 dead pixels destroy the whole design, so the workaround is to close the form after the </td>. This way, IE doesn't create the dead space. This hack is around and about on the net, since 1997. It is widely used on many sites.

Doesn't mean it is needed. Just don't put the opening form-tag inside the cell (same as with the closing tag) and IE will render it just fine without extra pixels, same with other browsers, and tags can be properly opened & closed (and even validate)...
