I noted that the contentRight div has a height of 500px on it. The first paragraph fits within that 500 and so its staying in...after the text exceeds to bottom of the right div, it spills out...so you need to work on that rightDiv I think. Buddy Paul Bennett wrote: There's a message here:

what do you mean by conditional comments? It seems to me, that css hacks are not really a good thing since they are called hacks. The language should just work regardless of browser or computer. I think thats what standards are for aren't they? So that the language is standard for everyone??

away... it's a nice option to have, just stop making IE so inconsistent with other browsers. I'll probably be using conditional comments for the next five years, and everytime I use them I think to myself, this would just be easier if IE worked the same as FF/Opera/Safari. On 10/13/05, Buddy

As an avid user of Dreamweaver everyday, I can tell you that Dreamweaver is great for compliant sites. It has a lot of built in tools like a validator that validates to the spec of your current DTD. Also closes tags according to the dtd chosen. It has not only xhtml validator but also 508

Well, I think the answer is a yes and no. Google I don't think reads or puts any weight on the meta tags at all. It does read a couple of meta tags like the 'revisit' meta tag and a couple of others but not description or keywords. Google goes more by link popularity and keyword density in

I don't believe you can stop the inheritance. You should try using the keywords which are relative to the users font-size setting. Xx-small x-small small etc... Otherwise you might can try mixing and matching percentages with ems? I have not tried it but maybe something like: div style=font-size:
