  1. Ok, that helped quite a bit. print "<body style=\"max-width:400px; min-height: 100vh; background-color: steelblue;\">\n"; This worked as expected. I suspect that I was not passing the multiple entries properly and the browser followed neither direction. But its uncovered another issue. If your using a graphic in a display container, and the graphic has transparency in it, it shows the background color above, not the background of the container its in. Since I'm using a different container background for each block in the stack, this is... undesired operation. Programming, ri
  2. One of the pages I've got for a mobile application is "shorter" than most phone screens. Since I've taken pains to use a color schema that does not use white backgrounds, is there any way to tell the browser what color to paint the otherwise undefined space? I'm using w3.css color tags in the body and want to match the background to the last container in the stack, so that any remaining whitespace is tinted. My first thought was to use the background-color property. I'm not sure if it plays well with w3.css tagging, and even if I color-code around that, it seems to conflict with the max
  3. I've run into an annoying problem with spacing that I can't seem to code myself out of. I have a table with a 400x100 image at its background in a page that is set max-width=400px, intended to be full width on mobile devices. The containers honor this, but somehow the image is being resized. Note the right edge of the screen, the 400px image is not aligned with the 400px containers. So i borrowed iPhone5 and I found a different problem. the far right of the image is clipped, so I dropped the last label and radio button down to the next container for the first set. That is when
  4. Oh good, I'm not going crazy. What's the smart way of overriding default click behavior?
  5. I'm trying to work my way around to a combination of PHP and JavaScript forms processing, and I'd like to change the label of an accordion tab after that portion of the form has been processed. Since some containers have more complex calculations to make than others, I thought it would look stylistically pleasing to see the results as the containter label, much in the same way an select input looks after choosing an entry in the drop down list. Is this possible?
  6. After letting a project age well, I'm looking at modernizing my code. The project takes the data input all year long at several different events and builds a 'league scoreboard' of them. The code goes back as far as 2002 in the oldest parts and the last major update to the code was in '07 even if CSS was added by someone else in '14. I have not worked with CSS before, and had a helper apply it to the PHP pages I coded way back when, but they were using a HTML4 subset that I would consider 'less than easily human readable'. My helper dropped out and I found myself looking at W3.css to
