A Dropbox question

I have Dropbox installed and there is a Dropbox folder under my home folder.

Are the files in the Dropbox folder a mirror image of what is stored in the cloud,
or do they take up just as much room on the HD as it does in the cloud?

Re: In search of a good html/css editor [SOLVED]

Thanks for all the help kc1di, if we don't get it going thats okay, I found a very slick html/css editor called Sublime Text.
It was in the same tar.bz2 type file, but this time the executable file started the program as expected.
It appears to be everything I wanted and then some.

Re: In search of a good html/css editor [SOLVED]

I extracted the file in the home folder, and copied and pasted as instructed, then rebooted.

Bluegriffon showed up in the menu, but does not open when I click on it, nothing happens.

I check and the path is correct.

Re: In search of a good html/css editor [SOLVED]

I would like to see how it works, but I'm not sure how. The folder that it extracted to only has two files with blugriffon in the name. bluegriffon bluegriffon.bin The one that says bluegriffon has an icon that looks like a terminal command line. I have clicked the icon and it asks me what I want to...

Re: In search of a good html/css editor

I found out that Gedit does a great job color coding the text in both html and css.
Thanks thou for the suggestion of Bluegriffon.
A simple text editor like Gedit is all I need for the lessons.

Re: In search of a good html/css editor

I would like to try it. I have looked at the web page for Bluegriffon and even downloaded it. I was slightly put off by the file format. It is in a Bluegriffon.tar.bz2 file. I was able to extract the files using the archive manager, but then was unable to install or even start the program from lack ...

In search of a good html/css editor [SOLVED]

I'm in search of an easy to use html/css editor that does the spacing and color codes the different elements as you code. I have installed Blue Fish but it is for advanced users. The editor at Code Academy automatically indents and color codes the different elements to let you know if the code is co...

Re: Question about HTML and CSS coding

Thank you for the help. The font in Firefox changed, looks just like your example now, there was no change in Chrome with the Cursive font but I did notice that Courier works in Chrome. I'm guessing that Chrome has a limited number of internal fonts available. Researching it a bit more I see that Ch...

Re: Question about HTML and CSS coding

In the example you illustrated the font change was very obvious, I could tell as soon as I saw it. I did the same section of code in Firefox and I had to look really close at the font to tell there was any difference at all, it did change but only minutely, not like your example at all. I suppose it...

Question about HTML and CSS coding

I've been working thru Code Academy's HTML course and everything has worked as expected except font-family, the font never changes. Now I'm up to the CSS section and font-family does not work there either, the font does not change to cursive. I have tried using a lowercase c on cursive and a capital...
