This is a test of the modified Rootsweb Guestbook using updated markup for both HTML4 and HTML5 pages.

This particular test is using HTML4 markup, and the textarea attribute of wrap="soft" has been removed and a CSS substitute of -

textarea {word-wrap: normal};

- has replaced it.

Along with the use of "label" to associate descriptions with the input field names, the new markup meets the W3C Markup Validation requirements.

My Guestbook form has been updated to take advantage of HTML5 and CSS3 where appropriate, but at the same time ensuring the layout is reproduced in the same format in all browsers from Internet Explorer Version 11 and other browsers in the same peer group back to and including Internet Explorer Version 5.01.

The "View Guestbook" and "GB Resources" buttons make use of the <a> tags capability to be used as a block-level element, and render equally well in the older browsers.

The Guestbook form will also center itself in the open window if an optional JavaScript file is used.

Looking forward to any useful comments.

Cheers,
Barry
