Fix Your Site With the Right DOCTYPE

[Tags: , ]. It's amazing what a difference it makes when you define your DOCTYPE correctly. Internet Explorer and Firefox, for example, agree on how to present it (mostly). My advice: set your doctype before you do anything else, as you can find that your carefully crafted CSS suddenly looks very different with an XHTML doctype compared to the HTML doctype.

If this doesn't make much sense, read the much more extensive and better-written article by Jeffrey Zeldman, and check out the W3C page that gives you the code needed.

Digital image mangement and stock upload

[Tags: ].

An interesting program thats in it infancy - Prostockmaster allows digital photographers to manage, organise and upload their imagery onto multiple stock sites in one convenient package.

You must be a registered contributor to the stock sites it uses and the current version does not support submission to the best stock library, Alamy* , but it still looks like an interesting and innovative piece of software none the less.

An article from someone who uses prostockmaster can be found here.

Build your own wiki

[Tags: , ]. I've been scouring the web for help on creating your own wiki website, and discovered this useful article at sitepoint, which covers a lot of stuff about definition before, on page 4, finally giving a list of wiki software you can use to create your own.

It's also worth checking out, which promises to provide you with your own wiki - and on first impressions, looks pretty good, with plenty of editing controls.
