    sliced html...

    can someone give me the lowdown on what exactly this means? people have been using this term when talking about templates on the related offers and requests forum, and for the life of me i can't figure out what it means.

    Slicing an image is where are cut a larger image into lots of smaller parts to load faster on a page.

    It's usualy done with a piece of software and almost always produces horribly overweight code.

    Dogma that is semi-true. You shouldn't just put the page out without going over what the program generates anyways and adding style sheets, etc.

    Not really, ImageReady does a great job.

    It is so much better to hand code, image slicing uses extranous tables, spacer gifs, all those horrible things...

    You can of course, do the image slicing and then code your own html...

    Splicing images with Fireworks 2 turned out to be a disaster for me - the image couldn't even fit together after that! But Adobe 6 did a great job it.

    I think I'm off the point of this topic

    You must be using an older version; ImageReady that comes with Photoshop 7.0 has settings that produce absolutely clean code. You can turn spacers on or off, force widths in TD cells and more.

    If you are concerned about 2 extra comment lines it adds, you can manually delete them
