This is an exact rip off of the Webmonkey.com HTML Cheat Sheet.

12-22-2004, 09:18 PM
Okay So What if People Dont Know About That Site Dude Yeah Stop Hatting

12-22-2004, 09:23 PM
Hatting is not a word.

And you could've just posted the link to the site or not claimed credit for it.

Also, you've just started learning HTML. That does not qualify you to teach HTML.

12-22-2004, 09:26 PM
Take Teaching As A Joke Alot of These People Know HTML Basics

12-25-2004, 01:22 PM

Why the fuck does it matter if he got that somewhere else ?

At least he is sharing with the ppl who wants to learn HTML ...

12-25-2004, 02:49 PM
buddy no offense, but you're an idiot, on both this site and MSN.. stop being a jackass and hatting

12-25-2004, 10:58 PM
He should've given credit.

Also, I've talked to him on MSN, and he was asking me how to make an html page. Then I gave him the link (http://webmonkey.com, html cheatsheet) and he decided to post it here AND OFFER LESSONS when he was begging me to learn how to code HTML.

Would you rather be educated by a teacher who just learned something the same day, or would you rather be educated by others who know it like the back of their palm?
