  1. Hi all, I found this CSS feature while checking QuirksMode.org I never came across before. It seems interesting. I just can't think of a time when I would use it.Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks guys! JDL
  2. Bad news.According to this page: http://www.quirksmode.org/css/background.html#sizeIE8 does not handle this atribute Can one get this done with Javascript then? If so what would be the code? Thanks guys, JDL
  3. I need this to work for IE8 though (WinXP). I have tried this: div{background:url(image location) no-repeat;background-size:200% 200px;} Not working.Could it be browser related? Btw, it doesn't matter if the image deforms. Thanks guys! JDL
  4. dsonesuk, thanks replying :)I should be using a debugger. I know now that I was so stuck with that issue just because I didn't close the iframe tag JDL
  5. Mind you due to the work environment technical restrictions I can only use IE8.The OS is WinXP. For some reason that I'm failing to spot, I can't have both things at the same time. Is either the iframe tag or the textarea tag. I wonder if it's a limitation of IE8, or I'm just doing a "big NO NO". I would appreciate it if someone could enlighten me with this ;)Notice that if you are to remove the Comments tags from the iframe tag the textarea tag will no longer show. <html><head> <style type="text/css">div.c_notes { position:relative; width:400px; height=auto; left:600px; to

  7. Nevermind guys! I believe I found it! <input type=button style="color:#ffffff; background:#123456;" value=Colorful>JDL
  8. I haven't been able to find how to change the color of a regular form button.Unfortunately I need to do this for IE8 Thanks guys, JDL
  9. Hi all, I'm a total rookie with JS, I know HTML & CSS though.I was hoping someone could tell me how formatting of text is done in JS.More specifically, I am trying to use this JS popup window, but I would love to be able to format its contents (font family, font weight, window padding, etc). Thanks in advance guys JDL
  10. Thanks a bunch guys! The Shared Docs did the trick!JDL
  11. I hope this is not too confusing...My wife and I have separate Windows accounts, and there are some files I want her to have access to. Instead of creating a second set of files for her I thought maybe I could just email her links to those files. I know HTML and some CSS, but I can't figure out what the syntax would look when those files are not in the web. Can someone please enlighten me? Thanks in advance,JDL
  12. Yeah, thanks I guess I should look into PDA forums then.JDL
  13. Actually, all I want is to practice CSS for learning purposes. If I have to learn stuff specific to the Palm screen it wouldn't bother me.JDL
  14. Is there a way to do this?Now, note that I'm not intending to do the coding in a pc and then read it in a Palm. That is easy. What I need is to do the actual coding in the Palm itself.Thanks in advance,JDL
  15. Thanks guys :)Skemcin, thank you kindly for your time and words. Based on your advice/explanation, I guess I'll wait and see how people react to the web site and maybe a couple of surveys/polls, and take it from there. If they are to see the value in our purpose then the forum has to work, because it's the kind of thing that can benefit greatly from the exchange of ideas and sense of community, support each other, etc. Sorry I'm so hush hush about it, but I have an understanding with a partner and well, you how these things are Btw, should the people want a forum, and it were to be somewhat
  16. I feel our web site could benefit from having a forum, but it was occurring to me that it might be best to first inaugurate the web site and see how it goes, maybe run a couple of polls from time to time to check how really visitors feel about having a forum. And take it from there. Of course the alternative would be simply to inaugurate the forum right after the web site, or at the same time, and hope that people will actually find the forum useful.Probably a second question steaming from the one above could be: How long is long enough to know whether people will ever find that forum useful o
  17. I found the horizontal aligning, but for the life of me I can't find the vertical! :)Please help! JDL
  18. I'm very new to CSS, so I would really appreciate it if you could not just reply with a "yes", but along with some sample syntax, both for the actual CSS & the HTML part of it.I have already tried it, but chances are I didn't use the right kind of selector. I know a rule has to be created in the CSS part, then this rule's name has to match a selector in the HTML. Any help will be greatly appreciated,Thanks in advance,JDL

    Laying out DIVs

    One question about your code S@m:Could you please explain why you chose "float" ? Just trying to learn. This is what I've done so far, could you please have a look, I could really use a hand figuring out what's wrong with the right side box.J.

    Laying out DIVs

    Bare with me I'm so new to CSS. I am testing out CSS layout techniques with DIVs (instead of tables). And so far I have learned that the DIV margin property will define its position on the page, depending on how much margin it's given on each of its sides. What I can't figure out so far is how to put 2 (or more) DIVs side by side?To be more specific, the question is how to do it using this techniqueThe main problem I have encountered is that the margin of the 1st DIV keeps me from positioning the 2nd DIV next to it. But then again, keep in mind I'm just a CSS rookie, so...Thanks,JDL
  24. Ever since I started learning about CSS I have become aware of the "em" unit, which seems to me it might be the preferred one, as it is not resolution dependent. I would love to hear what the CSS experienced masters could share about this.Thanks in advance,JDL
  25. Thanks for the complete reply jlhaslip :)Reason why I was asking is because Dreamweaver has a column specifically to list all AP Elements in the code. These AP Elements (apDiv1. apDiv2, apDiv3, etc) were initially created by Photoshop when exporting the image with slices, I purposely chose for it to use CSS/Div as oppose to tables. Actually, I just found some more info on this from the Dreamweaver Help file:"An AP element in Dreamweaver is an HTML page element—specifically, a div tag, or any other tag—that has an absolute position assigned to it."Thanks again guys
