  1. Hihaving done a bit more googling, it appears that Safari doesn't like wmode. common bug apparently.Thanks very much for the ff solution though
  2. thanks thats fixed FireFox. I took the embed code out to start with, cannot remeber why now. i definitely cured something removing it!Still have a background appearing on Safari though. Any Offers?
  3. HiI hope this is the right forum, as I know there is nothing wrong with the movie, just the code (he said confidently)Heres one for you....I have put a small flash movie with a transparent background into a new page and am trying to get it to look the same in all browsers. But it doesn't. I have done some tinkering with it as first it would show in IE then nothing else, then everything but IE. At the moment it show fine in IE7, Opera and Chrome, the background appears in Safari, and there is nothing at all showing in Firefox 2 or 3.at the moment the code is: <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="506" height="170" id="gladys12" align="middle"><param name="movie" value="images/gladys12.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" /><param name="pluginurl" value="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"/> </object> i'm using xhtml transitional dtd. As i said, i fiddled with it a bit to get where I am now, which is the best it has been. I know that 90% of people use IE, but as i know some of the people going to use it favour FF, I want to get it sortedAll help greatly appreciated

    HiI think you've got the wrong path. I had a look at the link, I think the image source is http://i289.photobucket.com/albums/ll216/R...mathsymbols.jpg. don't forget to add the dimensions and alt text also.
  5. thanks eru, that worked! got to be honest, got bogged down in moving the rest of it, never thought of that! cheers
  6. Hi allI've tried to put a shadow around my main container div by cheating ( i think, not sure how to do it any other way!). I have a an outer div with the shadow in, and then a main container with a 50px margin on all sides. this displays fine in IE, but FF, Op and GC have the background 50px lower than the main container. I've played around with the margins and positioning, but no success.yet again, I'm stumped. All help appreciated. url is herecss so far is #container { margin: 50px; border: thin #C0C0C0 solid; background-color: black; height: 650px; width: 900px; font: verdana,arial,helvetica,sans serif; color: silver; font-size: medium; position: relative;}#outerbox { background-position: 0 px,0 px; width: 1000px; height: 750px; background-image: url('images/containershadow.png'); overflow: hidden;} ( the site is still in development so excuse the mess)
  7. hi,you need to set 2 different styles in your sheet, one for element 'a', and one for 'a:hover'. if you just want the colour to change, just set a different color value in each styleI don't use the <menu> tag myself but am confident this works
  8. thanks both for the suggestions, i was getting a bit worried as i could see people looking and no one answering!!!tried no one ever listens idea first, and blow me it works! www.chilledworldrecordings.com/trial/index2.htmI'll try ricardo's when I'm near an image editor and can create a gif . Assuming that works aswell, which is the "best" way to do it? Should I be going down the background route, or does this have accessability issues? Is the goal as little html as possible? I guess this is another topic, sorrystill dont get why it didn't show in the first place though...This is the first forum I've been on, I'll definitely be backThanks again
  9. hers the code: <div class="breakbox"><img src="images/masteredbreak.png" alt="Mastering Recordings"/></div> thanks
  10. It also appears fine in Opera, haven't been able to test it on a mac yet
  11. it would probably help if i told you where it was supposed to be! Its towards the bottom, between the end of the artist divs and the last line of textThanks

    favicon in IE7

    HiFurther to earlier answers, from reading your post it sounds like you renamed the gif to ico. Is this what you did? I don't think these display properly. I can happily point you in the direction of a free .ico generator or a photoshop / paintshop plugin if it helps
  13. Hi AllApologies if this is obvious, I am sort of a newbie to all this. I'm self taught and design sites as a sideline, but want to take it further and am now trying very hard to be standards compliant, but I'm really stuck.The page is at www.chilledworldrecordings.com/trial. I have used an image as a content break as there is not really enough info to justify a separate page, and all is well in firefox, however, with ie...Its the third time I have used the div style and the other two work fine. Originally the image was a .png, thought it might be a photoshop 24 issue so changed it to 8, no joy. Changed it to a gif. Still no joy. Changed it to a background image for a new div style. Still no luck. Have completely recreated the picture and and repeated all of the above - still no joy.My limited brain is now beginning to melt, any help you can offer would be great!Many thanks and please go easy on me!!
