Looks like there are only 41 characters allowed in the Subject line - just wondering if it could be expanded. Thanks for running the site.

    Nope, purposely succinct, just enough to make a brief summary. (like this message )

    Thanks for the suggestion tho.

        dvdiva:

        It's a bigger pain than you would think.  Right now I am rewriting the ENTIRE Lottery Post site to be 100% XHTML 1.1 compliant (and validated).  I am talking every single page is being rewritten, sometimes from the ground up.

        The result will be a much better code base, but I am really tearing my hair out doing it, and it's one of the main reasons there hasn't been many new features lately.  I can't write any new features until the new website is finished, because otherwise I'd have to write 2 versions of the new feature (one for the current site and one for the new site).

        Also, there are some nice subtle improvements I'm making as I rewrite the website, so when it comes out those changes will be there.

        One of the really cool things coming in the new site is a completely new text editor for posting messages.  It is a nice rich text editor that works with Mozilla browsers, as well as IE - so you will be able to use it with Firefox on the Mac!

        The browsers I am using to test the website are IE 5.5, IE 6, Netscape 7, and Firefox on Windows, and Safari, Firefox, and Netscape on Mac.  I may test with Opera on the Mac as well, but I'm not going to get crazy if it's a little problematic.  Also, I am NOT going to test IE on the Mac - which is an abysmal browser.

          well we all appriciate the hard work that you do. As scary as it sounds you might want to include ie4 - seen it for people with webtv. I'd skip opera on the mac although its much better than i.e.

            I'm past ie4, and reviewing the stats for ie4 users, there aren't enough to justify tailoring anything for that browser.  Besides, there is no way to make a page XHTML 1.1 compliant for an IE4 browser.  Can't be done.
