    have you ever made an A4 printable form in Notes 4.6.2?
    Its still messy in R5....
    When you open the page always defaults to Notes standard margins. To get it to move to the right I had to add code to show and hide the horizontal scroll bar several times. Notes is just full of workarounds and "This has been reported to Lotus Quality Engineering" excuses!

    Proper Languages

    I think I should point out that XML is NOT a programming language.

    It can do no processing on its own. It can't be compiled or interpreted, and it is a pile of cack. :)

    Can you tell I work with it. :D

    Alright Elros ol' mate. XML really that painful to work with?

    Yeah, its a real pain in the a*se. Especially when using the DOM with JScript in an ASP page, or OpenXML in SQL.... argh! Its giving me a headache just thinking about it.

    Borland C++ is a pretty sharp language. Nice easy to use. But it does grate against my inbuilt programming guidlines such as naming conventions, and NEVER use globals unless they are static..... grrr....

    I voted for Visual Basic because its an event-driven language thats easy to learn and is similar to languages used by Flash (ActionScript) and Director (Lingo). ;)

    I fully understand VB but i think I don't have the brain capacity to learn anything "higher level" like JAVA/C++ - already tried it and it went in one ear and out the other. :eek:

    VB is fine for starting out, or for quick mockup projects. But it is really wasteful, and if you are trying to write efficient code in it, don't bother. The dll you have to ship with it is megs in size anyway. :confused:

    Anyway, its a MicroS$ft thing anyway.... *spits* :D

    The good thing about Flash's programming language ActionScript is that it uses the syntax of Java and the events & methods style of programming from VB6.
