    The first thing you have to do is work on your spelling and grammar. Use the "Preview Post" button, then go back and proofread what you typed before you submit it. It helps to read it out loud - if it sounds dumb as you read it, that sentence probably needs to be reworded.

    And with sloppy typing people reading the text can figure out what you meant - but computer program code written like that is going to 'crash and burn' repeatedly, every single time you try running it, until you root out all the typos and misspellings of commands and variables. Even a space in the wrong place can be critical.

    "A computer always does exactly what you tell it to do, even if what you said isn't what you meant."

    As to your question, they almost certainly have someone doing the work in-house. Coding a webpage isn't that difficult if you have the content and the graphics artwork (especially with the many high-powered WYSIWYG page building packages out there) but getting it to look right in various browsers is the hard part. And when you have to leave the editing program and hand-code something it can be very tricky.

    You can always look at the raw code for someone else's page to see how they did it, what commands and what order they used - but then they have the right to complain about it (or worse) if you just flat-out copy a chunk of their code, and they find out.

    The whole idea of HTML was to be a uniform set of tools, or building blocks, for you to assemble a page with. Though how the people who wrote nifty bits of code got the right to PATENT and LICENSE those coding tricks is a travesty, the courts have decided to create new law through creative rulings on things like that.

    Like Amazon.com's "patent" on 'one-click checkout' - and then sending everybody else who did the same thing a cease-and-desist order and a licensing agreement for "use of their patented code" in the same envelope...
    (I never did hear what the final outcome was on that one.)

        Besides the grammatical lesson, which was WAAAAAY over the top, :confused: what site are you referring to. What is the URL in question?
