Introduction to Computer Information Systems[edit]

I just wanted to let the community know that I have a class coming to Wikibooks to work on Introduction to Computer Information Systems for the next five weeks. If you find any issues with their efforts, please let me know and I can work with them during class to address any concerns. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 02:41, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Good news. JackPotte (discusscontribs) 07:47, 26 May 2017 (UTC)

Validity of HTML[edit]

Difficulties with indentation are mostly solved now. Thanks for the earlier help.

The markup for the table in Oberon#Contexts has | align="center" | for specific cells. WikiMedia generates <td align="center">, which the W3C Validator reports as erroroneous. As I understand, the validator will accept <td style="text-align: center"> as correct. A small change to eliminate many validity errors. Any chance of correcting the MediaWiki software? Thanks, ...

background-color in a preformatted block[edit]

Prefixing a line or each of a series of lines with " " produces a preformatted block. In the default case the block has a faint blue background. Can this background-color be changed? In User:PeterEasthope/sandbox, only the background behind the characters is set. I am interested to set the background throughout the box. Thanks, PeterEasthope (discusscontribs) 16:20, 14 June 2017 (UTC)

Scalable Vector Graphics Editor/Converter[edit]

With respect to Open Office Draw (version 4.1.1), there is an issue when exporting the image to a .svg (scalable vector graphics) format where any text may not display correctly. Does anyone know of a program that converts existing vector graphics based formats to the svg format, or directly edits .svg files? Thanks, Math buff (discusscontribs) 00:39, 23 June 2017 (UTC)
