Simple web-related functions (2)

We will here show another simple function.

(define (indent-pixels p . contents)
  (table 'border "0"
      (td 'width (as-string p) "")
      (td 'width "*" contents)))))

The definition of the indent-pixel function. This is a function which we use in many web documents to indent the contents a number of pixels relative to its context. Here we implement the indentation by use of a table, in which the first column cell is empty. As we will se, other possibilities exist.

y:/Kurt/Files/courses/prog3/prog3-03/sources/notes/includes/indent-pixels-2.lamlAn alternative version of theindent-pixel function.

This version uses Cascading Style Sheets expressiveness. As it appears, this is a more compact, and more direct way of achieving our indentation goal.
