  1. Looking at the site I created again, I saw the same problem occur,(this time in both firefox and internet explorer) with the UL tag. It's frustrating learning all the little differences associated with different browsers and what works or not. I've found that it's easier just to position one thing at a time and then check my work in the different browsers to make sure everythings alright before proceeding on to the next step.Anyway, I just stumbled upon an article which kind of adressed that concern, but I'd like to get some feedback on it from some of the professionals on this board. He suggested that because of the different margins and padding that different browsers display, you insert the following css:*{margin: 0;padding: 0}My question would be is this actually worth doing? Does it save in the overall time it makes to create the site because less problems arise(as everythings more uniform across all browsers), or is this actually a bad technique because it requires more coding to to specify padding/margins for whatever div, element that needs adjusting. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
  2. Thanks for the solution, it worked perfectly. It's much appreciated.Mike
  3. Sup guysJust a smalll little problem I hope one of you have the answer to. I've been trying to puzzle it out myself, but for the life of me can't figure it out!Here's my site url http://members.shaw.ca/griffeymike/The problem is that in firefox the #wrap container which i specified to hold all my content is not positioned directly against the top of the page(as it is in IE versions). Any help would be appreciated. The css code is posted below.CSSbody,html{margin: 0px;padding: 0px;background-color: #99CC00;color: #669999;}#wrap{background-color: #99c;margin: 0 auto;width: 750px;}#header{background-color:#00FF66;}#nav{background-color:#FF9966;}#main{background-color:#99c;float: left;width: 500px;}#sidebar{background-color:#0066CC;float: right;width: 250px;}#footer{background-color:#663333;clear: both;}
  4. Just thought I'd respond to this as I had a problem figuring this out as well awhile ago. The following link was a helpful article in solving the problem.http://www.simplebits.com/notebook/2004/09/08/centering.html
  5. Just wanted to introduce myself as well. Currently just completed the tutorials in html/xhtml/css and I've been dabbling in web design for the last month or so. Find it absolutely fascinating and I've browsed these forums a few times to locate answers to some of the questions I have.Anyhow, cheerio matesCarry on-Griff
