Default [IBC] Care Tips for your trees #4 -- Summer

Thank you Jim
If I remember correctly, previously you stated "that it would be ok to add
your care tips to club newsletters mailing etc. as long as credit/blame ; )
was given to the writer and that a listing of the IBC homepage ulr would be
appreciated" is that correct?
Also I wanted to mention Ortho has a free version of their problem solver
linked from their home page Ortho.com, it seems pretty helpful to this plant
pest and disease novice.

Yes. Anyone can use it as they wish, but credit and mention of
the IBC would be appreciated. If it is a paper newsletter, I'd
appreciate a copy. The last one was used "worldwide." ;-)

Also I wanted to mention Ortho has a free version of their

That's very good to know. I'll go take a look and add the page
to my Favorites list.

I found it, and marked it, but it is -- I think, at least -- a
bit awkward to use. A lot of clicking and selecting from
drop-down boxes, to get where you want to be, and the text is a
miniscule size -- even with IE6x's type size set to max -- for my
65-year-old eyes.

I have all of the books I mentioned (Ortho Home Gardener's
Problem Solver, Southern Living Garden Problem Solver, and Sunset
Garden Pests and Diseases and several others), so will stick with
them. Those for whom books are an obsolete means of
communication may well find the Ortho.com web page helpful.

Thanks for the reference, though.

In IE5, under Accessibility in the Options dialog check "Ignore font sizes
specified on Web pages." I imagine it is the same in IE6. You shouldn't need
to do this, but some web designers seem to forget that not everyone has
20/20 vision.

Yeah. One MORE step required before the pages are useful. I'll
stick to books for most of my reference work.

Thanks.
