comment Why aren't Multi-Platform Programming Languages popular?
I dont know a lot of languages that are not multi-platform. Java only runs in the JVM, but is considered multi-platform. Ada, C, C++, C#, Fortran, and most other popular languages actually are available for all major platforms.

comment Is it a good idea to use width and height properties with the < td > tag?
you should use % or em as unit if you want to be independant of screen resolutions. don't forget to adjust the font size or it will look strange on big ones.
