    Html And Body

    HiCan someone explain, what is the default setttings for margain and padding on ie and firefox, I know I can change it myself, I am just curous what the defaults are and why they are what they are?
  2. would just replacing embeded with the word object be sufficient, or do I need watch for other variables when I do it? (I am a bit unsure here)
  3. Hi I use dreamweaver to save on the repetative tasks, filemanagement and links, but I am trying to hand code most of the site,I am running validate on dw8 and I get this, it is related to the flash buttons I have used, what can I do about it to validate my site to standards (and please feel free to say if I am way off the mark)The tag name: "embed" Not found in currently active versions.[XHTML 1.0 transitional]I have about 30 instances of this coming up as I have used it on everypage. any suggestions what I am doing wrong? or how to validate my site please
  4. Hi, I have almost finished what I started (only a bit of content to add)www.weekendbridge.comI would just like some opinions on how to improve the site, (please bear in mind the following that I have tried to achieve)Easy to follow (idiot proof)Pleasant to the eye, without all the flashy stuff that is distracting to peopledecent colour scheme (comments welcome if you think it is too bridght or dull)also I would like some coments about the way I have built it (I have hand coded the layout, I actually use dreamweaver 8, for links and css styling (not that there is much there) and file mamangement and FTP usage)and I would like some comments about compliancy to standards (there is one issue I know I have with, the flash buttons for some reason is has a problem with embedded on the buttons) I am not sure what I am doing wrong there or how to correct it, so opinions are welcomed, please feel free to be as critical as you like, you won't hurt my feelings
  5. Thanks, I actually thought it was one word, but assumed I was wrong . I did not realise it did that, Thanks again, both of you

    Links Problem

    a:link { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 1px; color: #FF6600; text-decoration: none; }a:visited { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 1px; color: #FFCC66; text-decoration: none;}a:hover { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 1px; color: #000000; text-decoration: none;}a:active { font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 1px; text-decoration: none; color: #000000;} Hi my issue seems simple enough, I just cant figure out how to resolve it with cssWhen the site opens the Home link is paler than the other 4 links (visited site color #FFCC66 (pale orange))when I click another page that link also changes to the paler color etc etc.How do I get the visited site color to change back to the original unvisited color, when I change page.Also the active page does not show as Black font (I assumed it should do)www.weekendbridge.com hopefully you will see what I mean if I have not explained it very well
  10. ok, I kind of thought along these lines, but I was not sure, next question, why do you uniquely want to identify an element (again this question comes from reading other peoples code and seeing more than "ID" on a web page (OR AM i MISSING SOMETHING HERE ?)) Please can you give me an example Thanks for your patience
  11. Do not take this as a dumb question please, I am quite serious even if it makes me appear dumb.is a div the same as a layer and is an id the same as a div or layer etc etc, I really am struggling to comprehend the differences, anyone fancy trying to enlighten and old ###### ?

    Link Issue

    Thanks all for your answers, I think may be the last comment is quite sensible, may be seperate css style sheets are not the answer I am looking for at my stage of learning.would this approach make sense, create a template for my site and store it in dreamweaver templates and just rename and add content when I need that exact layout, develop other templates for pages that require different layouts?

    Link Issue

    THe mailto link "Contact us" is in the style I want, the other links all appear to have the original styling (i.e. not capitalised). Interestingly, it appears that the styling is now the same for the .a link so it does not appear as a problem, I am sorry for that, I tried it about 4 times when I first uploaded the amendment to the site, now all of a sudden the styling is ok over the whole page. must be a delay for some reason, though, I do not understand whymaybe because I only did half a job, I had not altered the properties of the other parts of the link, or pehaps as they were visited links, they do not seem to reset themselves when I close ie or firefox and reopen it, it still shows the links as visited
