Dear Networkers,

///A blatent cry for merciful assistance here. I'm writing pages for
World Vision in Russia, Belarus, and Ukraine, and am looking for a few
pieces of information that a few of you might be able to provide. Please
Understand IF I HAD THE MANUAL I would have Already RTFM, Also, Our Email
at this site runs over $80 a Meg with a turnaround time from the states of
24 hours, Frankly I'm underbudgeted on time and money to email requests pages
left and right.

SO, if you can spare a few seconds....

1) Tables, How do I get a gif on the right and text on the left? etc..
Can color be put into a table? Does anyone have a URL that would answer some
fairly basic questions?

2) Colors, How do get the "#0000f00" numbers for setting colors, I want to
change the background colors, but don't have the ability to match anything.
Is there a formula, or did I have to go to MIT? ;)

3) Forms, They would like to have a form or 2, I have ordered up some
100+ pages of HTML via email about writing html, and there isn't much
except you have to configure the server somehow.

4) Maps, I got lucky, This organization worked in over 100 countries last
year, Is a clickable map worth the time? Is Configuration of the server a
pain? ( It's not my server and I don't want to be a bad guest).

Finally, where is a good old fashioned text file that can explain
all the scripting I need to write.

Well, If you have read this far, you sure are a swell networker, and as
always, I pay for for my consultations, so if you reply, send your ground
address, and I'll send you 1,000 rubles.
