Because copying source code is difficult (as you no doubt already know), we're providing separate web pages where the source code can be copied with ease and certainty.
Larry Steiner, a website designer and hoster, had this to say an hour or two after he bought 52 Good-to-Know Techbits.
I bought it as much to support you as to get the responsive site tips.
But, after skimming through it, I found it to be worth so much more than the price, as usual.
