cascading style sheets for alignment.  I make a class for left, right, center, justify.  Then it's just a <p class=center>text</p> to center something.

Hey TranZ, how would I make this work on my Mambo site without messing up something ? Which style.css would I put this in and what would be the code ? (I basically want it for the pages i create like my Blog, news, etc) Huh?

For those of you that have setup a testing server at home, did you think it's better to get a separate PC and dedicate it as a test server or is it just as easy to run a test server on the same PC with everything else.

I currently use a WindowsXP machine and wonder if I'm asking for trouble trying to put Apache, PHP, MySQL, etc. on there.

This chug-a-lup laptop (HP ze4220, 1.6gh, 128MB RAM) I'm on handles XAMPP great.
Here's its memory usages for XAMPP:
Apache: 1,124k
FileZillaServer: 624k
mysqld-nt: 704k
(Mercury mail turned off.)

I haven't had a chance to see what % of CPU they take but I've never experienced lag in testing my sites.

The latest version of XAMPP automatically starts up on startup, but you can turn it off as need be. It also allows switching between php 4 and 5 (are they really that different?)

I've also got it on a 1gh, 386MB RAM PIII and a 2.8gh 256MB Pentium D.

(I've been considering setting up one of the desktops to dual boot so that I can have linux to test my sites on those browsers, any thoughts?)

Hey RAT, in response to your original inquiry (as I found it very interesting), one website suggests building the proposed site design in Fireworks as an image, possibly with some rollover effects and swap image stuff, but nonetheless, a Fireworks image or HTML to show your client and then if they like it or want to tweak it, you haven't spent a gazillion hours coding it, you just threw some design work down (the equivalent of scribbling in a notebook) and if they like it fine, if they don't, start over!

The website where I got that idea from was:

They are a Web Design company so I figure they at least know what they are doing at some level!

Also, I use my PC to test pages individually before I upload them to the server, but so far I don't have anything other than static content....I look to do more PHP, MySQL stuff down the road!
