  1. I know this took an inordinate amount of time to try and then reply, but thanks, this worked (I took the easy option). I don't know why my original code didn't work simply because I used the same exact code (just different class names) on another site and it worked fine. But whatever the reason it's working now and I thank you.
  2. I have tried and tried to get the content for the far right column to go where it's supposed to go, but it ends up underneath the 1st column. I have looked and fought with this for a long time and I just can't seem to find the problem. This is the link for the page, and here's the link to the stylesheet. I need a new set of eyes for this. What do I need to do to get the content (at this point the candle graphic), to go into a 3rd column where it's supposed to go?
  3. Okay, without delving into the age old question as to why things display differently in IE and FF, why would a defined font size display differently? Of course it looks fine in FF, but since it displays smaller in IE, it throws off how it looks and interacts with images placed in with the text. Now for the $64 dollar question, how do I work around this?For a look, here is the site in question
  4. How can I, or is it possible, to keep the elements of a page from going out of whack when someone increases the zoom on a page let's say to increase the font size? It would probably be easier if you look at what I'm trying to explain. Here's the link to my page. If you increase the zoom it all goes out of whack. How can I prevent that from happening?
  5. Thanks everyone. I just don't do this as much as I used to and it's showing. I seem to be having too many senior moments these days.
  6. I know there's a reason why the padding properties work in FF but not IE but I can't remember why. I don't do this regularly enough and some things seem to get lost somewhere in the cobwebs. Here's the link to the site and here's a link to the stylesheet. It's the padding on the skyline image and the padding around the right side content that isn't working in IE. Can someone refresh my poor memory and explain why this isn't working and what the work around may be?
  7. Okay, I have a page that's supposed to display a random quote when the page loads. I have the quotes set up in a php array and I use "require" to call this script when the page loads. I have looked at the script and the call for so long my eyes hurt and I can't seem to figure out why it's not loading. I don't have the page published yet but here are all of the files for you to look at. It's probably something very simple but I can't see it.HTML: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"><html><head> <!-- Last Updated On Saturday, May 08, 2010 -->&l
  8. I've often wondered about whether it is better to use the ASCII charater set instead of the actual character such as a "$". I know that modern browsers support and render these characters, but is it better to use the ASCII Character set to be sure that all browsers will render a character correctly? I realize that there are some characters that have to be rendered via the ASCII set, but should you use it to be consistent and to avoid any problems with rendering?Or am I just concerning myself with minutia that just doesn't really matter?
  9. I have often wondered what screen width is the most common in use today. I use 1024 x 768 at home. Has there been any studies as to what the most common resolution being used today is? How many people are still out there using 15" or 17" monitors and use the 800 x 600 resolution? I would love to see some data on that.
  10. Yes you are. But are you calling the class "p", or are you trying to style everything within "<p>...</p>"? If it's the former and not the latter it's okay. But if it's the latter, you need to lose the period. To style all text within every <p></p> tag you would write your CSS as:p{ font-size: 2em; color: red;} But if you want to create a class to use within various elements, you would write your CSS as: .p{ font-size: 2em; color: red;} It's just that creating as class "p" could get confusing when writing or coming back and modifying your HTML. I hope I haven'

    I haven't tried this, and this is after a glass of wine and a couple tequila sunrises...Happy New Year by the way.But off the top of my head, define two classes for the scrolls such as: .scroll-l{ float: left; margin-left: whatever you want, if you want it;}.scroll-r{ flaot: right; margin-right: same as above;} Then you could do this: <img class="scroll-l" src="http://www.maxwellarts.com/images/img21-L.gif" /><img class="scroll-r" src="http://www.maxwellarts.com/images/img21-R.gif" /> I hope I haven't killed too many brain cells tonight and this makes no sense. But it mig
  13. Thanks for your help, I figured it was something simple.But: When did these attributes become deprecated? The references I've used show them as a valid attribute for XHTML Strict, and my pages validate as such. Here's the link to XHTML.com and to W3Schools.
  14. I'm trying to open a new window when the link is clicked but it's not working. It just opens in the current window. Here's the code: <a onclick="window.open(http://www.ThePointeChurch.net); return false;" onkeypress="window.open(http://www.ThePointeChurch.net); return false;" href="http://www.ThePointeChurch.net"> <img alt="The PointeChurch" src="" title="The PointeChurch" height="200" width="200" /></a> Should I include a separate <a> element inside a <noscript> instead of including the URL in the same
  15. I working on the single image CSS rollovers now. I found a good tutorial to follow and I thought I'd go ahead and post it in case someone else needed help with this. I have to re-work the pages and positioning, but this seems to be what I need to do to get it working with all browsers.Here's the link to the site. It's easy to read and follow. Hope this helps someone. If it helped someone as thick headed as me....who knows
