I just finished the first section of, Building the T.N.S. Hensly. This
section covers modeling the general shape of the ship. Let me know what you
think.

It can be found in POV Advance, under tutorials.

Looks quite detailed, how about using non-proportional font type ( <pre> would
work quite well) and indention, that would make the code more appealing.  I
would also consider making it modular, so you don't have to carry around the
greyed parts. 

Looking forward to the texturing part :-)

Christoph,
Thanks, it is hard to get any feed-back on a tutorial (makes you wonder if
you've screwed it all up or lost the reader in the dark).

Was the font to small to read?

The code was copied from POV to Notepad, where I did my comments. The Indent
that I have in POV should have been intact, but I will look it over again.

I left the greyed sections in, so a new reader (On modeling) can see exactly
how the code changes as they progress thru the tutorial. The colored
sections I felt made it a simple issue to note the changes in the scene,
step-by-step.
In Section B (and the rest that follow), the code will be more modular. The
next section will cover, adding more detail to each part of the ship, and
include the engines.

Regards,
C.J. - POV User

No, that's not the problem, you have to use the <pre> tag to get text formatted
as seen in the text editor.  I think there are some other pages on your site,
that used <pre>.

You seem to use Visual Page 2.0 to build your page, i don't know that prog,
maybe you should format your Pov-code parts by hand.

I went back and looked at the code. Oops! I can not believe I did that. O
well, I guess I will correct it tonight. Anyway, thanks for pointing it out,
I guess that will teach me to not HTML and drink.....well maybe.

P.S. Visual Page 2.0 is made by Symantec, "The Leader in HTML Editors... or
something like that." I got it with my Norton System Works(on windows
because windows doesn't...) and its an earlier "What you see..." editor. I
also have 1st page, which I like much more, but VP is just faster at
building the page(s) from a template.

Why not, I've had my best results that way. Or do you happen to know
of any other way to keep your sanity trying to work some simple HTML
code work under NS?

My Brothers Opinion of HTML: 

"What a goofy idea. Who would have thought that a primitive text
formatting language would be a threat to Windows NT and the rest
of the high-tech world."

(As quoted from his home page)

I tend to agree with him :)

Me too. Yesterday I was able to kill NS and Windows with a simple page
involving nothing but a table with another table in one of it's cells.
Go figure...
