I just implemented the progress bar described in "PHP 5 in Practice" by White and Eisenhamer on pp198ff. The PHP code just echoes out a <style> section followed by a some div elements in the middle of the body section. What surprises me is that it's ok to stick a <style> ,,, </style> section in the middle of the body. This seems to work fine but w3schools says for <style> at http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_style.asp
The <style> element always goes inside the head section.
I'm just wondering how PHP gets around this. To make the bar go away when it reached completion I just echoed out:
And that worked too.
Thanks for any input.
