Abstract: This paper concerns subspaces E of C(S), where S is locally compact and Hausdorff. The main result is that the unit ball of E is compact in the strict topology iff E is the Banach space dual (in the integration pairing) of the quotient space M(S)/E^0, and the bounded weak star topolgy on E coincides with the strict topology. This result is applied to several examples, among which are the space of bounded sequences and the space of bounded analytic functions on a plane region.
