comment Styling the HTML tag in a web document
I think he means "Should you use html as a selector (in your CSS file)?", not "Should you put style rules in your html file".

comment What language is most similar to JavaScript?
@Akshat: Thanks, but it's just a link and I don't think it's answer worthy unless I make a summary of it or add something to it. I don't really have time to do that right now, but you (or anybody else) can do it if you want to.

comment using ant colony algorithm to create cross word game
What type of crosswords do you want to generate? Why do you want to use ACO? It's probably doable, but it doesn't sound easy. I wouldn't use that approach.

comment Web developer to software engineer
I wasn't being precise, but what I wanted to say is that doing things for the web isn't less valuable than doing some other types of applications. You can be a project architect or a code monkey, it doesn't matter whether you're doing stuff for the web in Ruby or doing something finance-related in Java. (I do realize that bringing the whole issue up was a mistake / not constructive, but I had the need to give an explanation before retreating from this discussion.)

comment Algorithm for dividing a range into ranges and then finding which range a number belongs to
You can't have min = 1 and max = 9 (and number of ranges = 5) if you want to divide your range into subranges of equal length. If that's not what you're looking for, you'll have to explain what is it that you're looking for more precisely. Until then, -1 for being too unclear (and not answering Standback's question).
