I cruised this thread out of curiosity and noticed a couple of things which were not mentioned but which might have some bearing on the issue.

A Jew writing to non-Jews might say something like, "Sabbath of the Jews" to indicate that it was kept according to the sacred lunar calendar wherein Shabat is celebrated, not on Saturday but on the new moon, and on the seventh day after new moon (first quarter), the fourteenth day after new moon (full moon), and the twenty first day after new moon (third quarter).

We call them months is because they were originally synchronized with phases of the moon.

Thus, Passover occurs on the seventh day after the first new moon of spring. Indeed, the entire week is sacred, but the really big party starts on the evening of the seventh; what we might call the evening of the sixth. Historically, the Jews have suffered a lot of grief in an attempt to honor the holy lunar timetable.

If you'd like to be really confused, try synchronizing the lunar calendar with the solar calendar. That was one of the primary duties of ancient astronomers. That's why they were paid the Big Bucks!

Interesting, but I don't see the relevance to the thread. May be you can go into a bit more depth? I was quite enjoying this thread, then Wordswordsman vanished.

As you probably noticed, not many on this board take much interest in Biblical analysis.

Take care.

I am working on something to put up at my website. Should be ready after the weekend.

BTW, I visited your site and found it difficult to read the dark red text on the black background. I wear trifocals but I'll bet I'm not the only one who has mentioned this, yes?

My website is new, and I am redoing a lot of my work to make it more accessible. Feel free to stop by and take a peek.

You are the first to comment actually. I need to make some updates, so I'll see what I can do about the problem.

Your website crashes Mozilla. Though I haven't tested it, any browser built on the Mozilla core may have problems with it-- ie Netscape, Galeon and some others. Just thought you might want to know.

Thanks for the heads up. Thought I had set it up to allow Netscape.

When you say "crashes" do you mean that your screen locked up? You get knocked offline? You lose the link? What?

Mozilla (build ID:20022091014) on Win98 suffers a fatal error and shuts down. The rest of the system is unaffected.

The page works in Explorer and Opera on Win98. It is readable in Galeon and Mozilla on Slackware Linux but the formatting is not right. Ditto for Omniweb, Explore, iCab and Chimera on OS X. Netscape on Slackware seems to do just fine.

I noticed that the page is XML. May I ask why? I don't really see anything that cannot be done with HTML and with a LOT less code to boot. Just curious. Tell me to shut up and go away if you want.

Beats the heck outa me! I wondered why there was so much code. I am a greenhorn when it come to all that. Been working with MS Front Page. It's back to the books for sure. Thanks for all the tips.

If you want some help you can email me directly -- apljdi@austin.rr.com. I love this sort of thing.

Oh, and Frontpage is evil

Thanks again for your help John.

I am redoing the site for a number of reasons and am curious whether you have any problems with it as it stands today.

I have found that it is easier and more effective to upload from yahoo's file manager than from Front Page itself. You are not the first person who has expressed criticism of FP and there do seem to be some glitches but I certainly enjoy the creative potential which it offers.

You've tapped into my evangelical geek vein I highly recommend LeechFTP for uploading files, if you run Windows.

Here is the thing about FP's creative potential, IMHP. In order for your page to be accessible to the greatest number of viewers, you can't stray too far from strict HTML. Cascading style sheets, Java, Javascript are all buggy in one browser or another. If you look at professional code, you see switches that load code optimised for the different browsers and OS's. Really it is all terribly messy. XML is extremely buggy and essentially not functional in most browsers. FP allows easy access to all of this stuff and likely does not tell you about the bugs. To make it worse, Microsoft has a bad habit of making things work on their systems and on no one else's. There are functions that only work in IE. There are fundtions that only work in IE on Windows. It is all very irritating. So there. Sermon over.

Are you images uploaded? I can't access them. I see only the placeholders.

Dangit!

I finally got them to display for me. Now you can't see them!?

Thought I'd done everything according to Hoyle.

Thanks for the tip.

Now, Back to the drawing boards.
