1833 Census Summary of Prince Edward Island

 


 

The following census statistics were collected several years ago from microfilm reels at the National Archives in Ottawa. The data was stored as Lotus Wordpro tables, some of which are now being converted to html files. The html files are much smaller than the LWP files, for example, the LWP file of the 1881 census of Lot 36 requires 2930kb of storage while the corresponding html file requires only 284kb of storage.

The cell contents of the tables are usually one line, except where it would cause the cell to be too wide. The cell width of the 'Names' column of Lot 47 North, Schedule 1, is determined by the one line entry, order of visit #80,

McDonald, Daniel A.  (Domestic)
whose html code is
McDonald Daniel A.  (Domestic)

The above approach to determining cell width usually overrides the 'width' attributes which are sometimes included in the <th> tags.

In order that the entry from Order of visit #18, Lot 47 North, Schedule 1

Campbell, Everistus  (Grandfather-in-Law)
appears in two lines, the html code could be:
Campbell, Everistus<br>(Grandfather-in-Law)
with the keyboard minus sign used to represent the hyphen. This representation gives
Campbell, Everistus
 (Grandfather-in-Law)
In order that the same entry appears on one line, one could use the html representation
Campbell,&nbsp;Everistus&nbsp;&nbsp;(Grandfather&minus;in&minus;Law)
which gives
Campbell, Everistus  (Grandfather−in−Law)

Netscape Navigator browser does not break a line at a hyphen (keyboard -) so that it is not necessary to use the html code '&minus;' for a hyphen to avoid a line break in the above example when using this browser. The following example - a one cell table with width="20%" align=center - illustrates this point. The row of hyphens appears in one line with Netscape Navigator Mozilla Firefox, and in more than one line with Internet Explorer.
