    <title> Wrox recipes. The worlds best scrambled eggs</title>
  <h1>Wrox-Recipies - Worlds best scrambled eggs</h1>
    <p>I adapted this recipe from a book called
	 <cite cite="http//www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0864119917/
	 ">Sidney Food</cite> by Bill Grainger.</p>
	<p> Ever since tasting these eggs on my 1<sup>st</sup> visit to Bill's resteraunt in Kings Point, sidney, I have been after the recipe.
	 I have since transformed it into what I believe is the <em>best</em> scrambled eggs I have ever tasted.</p>
	 <p> This recipe is what I call <q>very special breakfast</q> just look at the ingredients to see why. It has to be tasted to believe.</p>
    <p>The following ingredients make one serving</p>
	    <li>2 eggs</li>
		<li>1 tablespoon of butter (10g)</li>
		<li>1/3 cup of cream <i>((2 3/4 oz.)</i></li>
		<li>A pinch of Salt</li>
		<li>Freshly milled black pepper</li>
		<li>3 fresh Chives sliced</li>
	    <li>Whisk eggs, cream and salt in a bowl
		<li>Melt the butter in a no stick pan over low heat <i>(taking care not to burn the butter)</i></li>
		<li>Pour egg mixture into the pan and wait until it starts settling around the edge of the pan (aound 20 minutes).</li>
		<li>Using wooden spatula , bring the mixture into the center as if it were an omelet, and let cook for another 20 seconds.</li>
		<li>Fold contents in again, leave for 20 seconds, and repeat until the eggs are only justdone.</li>
		<li.Grind a light sprinkling of freshly ground pepper over the eggs and blend in some chopped fresh chives.</li>
	  <p>You should only make a <strong>maximum</strong> of 2 servings per pan</p>
  </p> This recipe is what I call <q>very special breakfast</q> just look at the ingredients to see why. It has to be tasted to believe.</p>

Default Woe I was hoping for a response

Does anyone know of a place where a post like this might get a quicker response?
One of the reasons I bought a Wrox book was because it seemed to have a vibrant forum. It seems like my post has had 88 views and no responses.
I'm a total newbie here and am feeling a little stuck.
Any info would be appreciated

Default What are you seeing?

Hi WillieO,

What are you seeing in IE / Chrome when you try this example?

Can you also check where you saved the file and look at the file extension to make sure that it is .html. Sometimes notepad will save these files with a txt extension, if that is the case you could try putting the filename in double quotes e.g. rather than save it as example-one.html it becomes "example-one.html" - using the quotes helps force the correct file extension.

Seems like you didn't specify what kind of list your very last list is supposed to be.

IE: <ol><li></li></ol> or <ul><li></li></ul>

You just put in the <li></li>
