New patches for HTML strict
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have made new patches for 140 files.
The patches are grouped and the debian.css _must_ be updated before
the other patches are applied.
- - The whole set as tgz is downloadable at http://
- - The partical files can alos be retrieved at http://
If you apply patches, please do not forget to answer to this mail to
inform others, which part is already done.
New in the css:
css for the d-i
css for a mail table layout (class ridgetable) as there are still
layout tables and css for tables cannot be generalized.
css for a div containing a quote 
css for tag samp 
css for normal hr (repalcing the "noshade and height 1") 
css for a gloss dt (dt class="gloss" which renders the gloss term
The patches do not include completely correted usage of HTML tags for
semantics only (layout should be done by css). But they make the
pages in the devel tree completely validate as HTML 4.01 strict.
Here the list of patches:
debian.css-diff.20050908.txt - must be done first!
 This is used forst time to replace the table at http://
www.debian.org/devel/join/newmaint but can be used with and without
image on every page.
Please note, that <blockquote><p></p></blockqote> contains the quote
and <cite></cite> the place or person, the quote is taken from. (See
 The tags <samp> </samp> are for screen text output (defined in
HTML 4.01) this is used to replace the wrong used "blockquote" there.
Blockquotes do not get special css as they are still used for layout
purposes on many pages.
 In most cases the hr class=hidecss should be used to have a hr in
lynx where the graphical pages show a border. But if you want a hr
where no border is, you can use hr without class now. It will be
rendered as a 1px grey line.
 For glossaries there is not need to use tables! please note that
tables should be real tables (containg tabluar data how it would be
done on a sheet of paper or in a book), have a summary, table heads
(th) and a caption as title.
