[WSG] Mysterious background dis-appearing

2009-05-04 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
I was wondering if anyone would know why the background on our site is
initially not there and after a few refreshes it appears and then doesn't go
away anymore (which is just how I would like it from the start).

RE: [WSG] Mysterious background dis-appearing

2009-05-04 Thread Taco Fleur
Hi,
 
Yes, you might well be right and the Col. scared the image away ;-)
 
 the background image may have been afraid that Colonel Anna was gonna
break
him in two. :)
 
 Are you seeing this in any particular browser? it looked ok in my firefox.
 
The problem appeared on any page at  http://www.executiveresults.com.au/
http://www.executiveresults.com.au/ in IE7, Firefox3 and IE6, I tried IE6 on
another machine than mine. And the white under the logo just wasn't there
until doing a few refreshes, I now noticed that was not the only thing, the
image replacement also did not work initially. It's almost as if the browser
did not see part of the stylesheet. I say part as it must see some of it
as there is a layout.
 
I don't understand how a refresh could fix it, the whole stylesheet is
either not there at all, or its there, not just a little bit...
 

Kind regards,

Re: [WSG] button name present and some CSS issues

2008-11-03 Thread Taco Fleur
Thanks Thierry,

Indeed the problem lies with IE6.

It gets worse though, Internet Explorer 6 has a further bug where it will
treat all button elements as successful controls, and submit their data to
the server, even if they were not clicked. This effectively makes using
multiple button elements impossible.

Back to using input type=submit buttons for now.

The *position: relative* trick also worked.

thanks a lot.

[WSG] button name present and some CSS issues

2008-11-02 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
I just published a site that has some strange behaviour.
 
As far as I know, the name of a submit button (name=) is only passed on to
the receiving end when that button is actually clicked. 
I've always worked that way, maybe I've always worked with input
type=submit and now that I'm using button I'm discovering that they
work differently? Would anyone be able to shed some light on this?
 
The problem is that on the server-side I check to see what button is present
and based on that I perform an action like going back for example. For some
reason in Internet Explorer ALL button names are now passed along when the
form is submitted.
 
http://gabba2.unidapsolutions.com.au/buy-now.cfm
 
 
Display issue, in Internet Explorer the continue button at the bottom of
the form is showing only partially. I've tried several things to get it to
display fully, does anyone have any suggestions here?
http://gabba2.unidapsolutions.com.au/buy-now.cfm
 
Thanks in advance
 
Cheers

[WSG] 1px difference between IE and FireFox

2008-10-13 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
I'm hoping someone can shed some light on the following issues which I
cannot seem to resolve
http://www.onlinemarketingplatform.com.au/
In Internet Explorer there is a 1px difference in the evolution image, this
is to the right of the text Business marketing is evolving, if you compare
this screen with firefox you'll see that in firefox it looks exactly as it
should.
 
Stylesheet for the index page
http://www.onlinemarketingplatform.com.au/_resource/style/specific/index.css
The issue is within the h3 element (there is only one on that page).
 
Furthermore, on that same page there is a find out how button to the
bottom right, in IE this aligns to the center of the p element, but in
Firefox it does not. I would like it centered.
 
Thanks in advance.

IE6 doesn't like odd numbers so it rounds off 'height: 135px' on h3 to 134px
- making the h3 1px too short.

IE7 handles odd numbers better so it gets the height right, but it places
the h3 itself 1px too high - at least relative to the body-background.

Suggest you cut IE some slack (or bug-space) by making the image 1px shorter
that the h3. Will at least make it appear right in those buggers.

 Furthermore, on that same page there is a find out how button to the

Add...

[WSG] input type image

2008-07-14 Thread Taco Fleur
I have a question in regards to styling a submit button.

I have the following HTML
input name=doSearch type=image id=btnGo value=GO
src=/certainedge/_resource/generic/image/btn_go.jpg alt=GO

Please note: I'm more than happy for the HTML markup to change, to
achieve the desired effect.

Following is the CSS I used, which I hoped would change the image, but
it doesn't.

input#btnGo {
background: url(/proximer/_resource/generic/image/btn_go.jpg)!important
top left no-repeat;
}

Would it be acceptable to just use a input of type submit and leave
the value empty?
input name=btnGo type=submit id=btnGo

That looks like it did the trick, had to pull the button up a bit with
position: relative;
top: -3px;
I'm not sure why.

Anyways, I ended up with

button#btnGo {
background: url(/proximer/_resource/generic/image/btn_go.jpg) top
left no-repeat;
border: none;
width: 26px;
height: 20px;
cursor: pointer;

}
button#btnGo span {
position: relative;
left: -3000px;
}

 you could use:

 button type='submitspanSubmit/span/button

 then shift the span off the page and style the button with a sprite - this
 gets around having an empty value

Re: [WSG] Standard for committing changes to a database?

2008-04-09 Thread Taco Fleur
Interesting; we're going through the same process here. There is talk about
converting the view pages to editable pages that commit the changes right
away. I'm completely against it. I think it will bring along with it lots of
issues;

- when you have text fields that are 20 in size, and the text is 40
characters it will be cutting of the text.
- same thing applies to textareas
- I believe more people will be viewing the records without needing to make
modifications, therefore the main objective should be to make the layout as
good as possible

My opinion is that separate pages for each action is better than trying to
fit all the functionality in one.

 Hi everyone

 I am currently reviewing a desktop application that involves mostly
 viewing and changing records in a database (via a nice GUI front end).

 In some places, changes are committed as soon as you enter them, a bit
 like how Microsoft Access operates. In other places, the user has to
 specifically save to commit changes, like MYOB.

 Any opinions on when one approach should be used over the other and
 whether the inconsistency matters?

Yes, I own one of them, but I believe I stayed objective.

onboard any suggestions, additions, correct any information that is
incorrect and will complete any missing information if provided. And I will
also include (or even fix) any negative feedback for clickfind, if any.
 
I'd also like to add more information about accessibility and usability to
the document, which is also one of the reasons for posting here.
 
I'd like to include the contact details and link in the document from people
who are contributing to the document to make it more credible.
 
Thanks.

RE: [WSG] keep to the standards of the standards list

2008-02-16 Thread Taco Fleur
First: I don't think there is one solution that pleases everyone. 
 
Personally, I think people should loosen up a bit on this list. I see most
posts move on topic at some stage.
 
Don't like the post, don't read it. I'm subscribed to 100's of mailing lists
and scan through the subjects, pick out what is interesting, reply if I want
to, if it's crap I ignore it. Why crack a fuss about it in the open.
 
I think more people leave the list because they are scared to say something
on it without getting flamed...
 
My two cents anyway... waiting for the flames... ;-)

Thank you Matt 

The value of a specifically defined list is adherence to that set of
definitions. Let's hold to the _standards_ of the list as much as we can
please. Although, saying that, I find it good to be helpful... so am one of
the goodwill exploitees, yes.

One thing though, in the desire to hold to standards, conflicts arise in the
creation of code, so we DO have to occasionally debug in order to solve,
don't we?

With no offense intended to the list moderators, I feel the usefulness of

The majority of people on this list are genuine web developers, who care for
the future of the Web and the place Web Standards has in it. But there seems
to be a small number of people who think they can simply post their problems
to this list without consulting any other reference.

Basic CSS problems, PHP syntax and even spam help are just a sample of some
of these questions that can, and should be either found quickly by a number
of popular resources or even a quick search in Google. Instead, they lazily
exploit the goodwill of many in this list who are kind enough to visit their
site and fix their problems.

With the number of these increasing there is no wonder why people are
leaving this list (and publicly doing so).

Out on a limb here - does anybody else feel the same? If so, do you have a
suggestion as to how we can better the quality of the list?

[WSG] floats not wrapping

2008-02-14 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello,
 
does anyone know how I can stop floats from wrapping (not sure if thats the
right word for it).
Best way to explain it is by going to the following page and resize the
browser to something smaller than 800px
http://www.clickfind.com.au/advertise-online.cfm
 
Once you do that, the right side float starts to go below the first float,
which is really not what I want to happen, the browser should just show the
horizontal scrollbar when the browser is resized.
 
Would adding a whitespace:nowrap somewhere do the trick? And if so, what
kind of support does that have? 
Maybe I should lay the page out differently?
 
Thanks in advance.

Add a width to the containing element to 'brace' the page so that it can't

[WSG] use of p in li

2008-02-10 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
I've been wondering about this for a while, just hesitated to ask (as it

I've always been using p within olli (example, see state list on

However, I see many people use a list without p tags, and style the text
within the list item by creating a duplicate style of the paragraph tag.
Just wondering, what is the way to go?

Hi Tim,
 
What I mean by duplicate style is that if I assigned color: red, font-size:
0.8em to the p tag, I will have to assign the same style to my li tags
to make sure they look the same.
 
OK, general consensus so far is, it's ok to put it in, but preferred to
leave them out and style the li tag separately.
 
Thanks

Hi Taco,

 

In the case of the example you provided I'd say definitely no need for the
nested p tag. The li tags are enough to describe the content inside them
- they are items in a list. I don't see how it is a duplicate style of the
p tag either, in my experience it is good practice to style your lists
differently than your paragraphs.

 

Hope this helps,


Best Regards,


Tim

Hi,

OK, but a paragraph is a paragraph, right? So why not mark it up as one
(even if it's only one)? 

I think from the responses it appears that there is no wrong or right, just
a personal preference ;-)

In my example (http://www.web-designers-australia.com/) the states are
probably not a paragraph, I just hate styling them again ;-)

Definition of paragraph: A paragraph is a section in a piece of writing,
usually highlighting a particular point or topic. It always begins on a new
line and usually with indentation, and it consists of at least one sentence.

I'd say the only time you need to use paragraphs inside list items is when a
list item's content is made up of more than one paragraph.

Not sure if I fully understand, I think you mean;
Assign the paragraph style to a HTML tag that is surrounding all other tags?
If so, I would not feel comfortable with that.

If you apply the style to the container, then you don't need to assign
styles individually to different elements (except where you want them to be
different).

 Hi Tim,
 What I mean by duplicate style is that if I assigned color: red,
 font-size:
 0.8em to the p tag, I will have to assign the same style to my li 
 tags to make sure they look the same.
 OK, general consensus so far is, it's ok to put it in, but preferred 
 to leave them out and style the li tag separately.
 Thanks

 Hi Taco,


 In the case of the example you provided I'd say definitely no need for 
 the nested p tag. The li tags are enough to describe the content 
 inside them
 - they are items in a list. I don't see how it is a duplicate style of 
 the p tag either, in my experience it is good practice to style your 
 lists differently than your paragraphs.


 Hope this helps,


 Best Regards,


 Tim

 Why not? If this is your HTML:

I would not do it because you'll end up with having to override styles, it's
not clear to other developers who come in on the project, it becomes a mess.
But that might be personal preference again ;-)

This

li {

Although I spose you could do

p, li {

line-height: 1.5
}

But there may be cases where you want to apply a style to more than two or
three elements, so it makes more sense to target them with a style on the
container.

[WSG] linking to images with //

2008-01-31 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
quick question; we signed up for scanalert.com and been given some HTML code
to place a icon on our search engine www.clickfind.com.au 
 
I placed the code on the pages without really paying attention to it, after
a while I discovered the image was linked as
src=//images.scanalert.com/meter/www.clickfind.com.au/12gif
 
I never seen this before, but it worked! I changed it to
src=http://images.scanalert.com/meter/www.clickfind.com.au/12gif;
and now it doesn't seem to load anymore, for an example see:
http://www.clickfind.com.au/about-clickfind.cfm right next to Yahoo Web
Service the scanalert icon should load.
 
I have no idea whether the way they linked to the image is valid, does
anyone know? I guess if it is, linking to the images that way would overcome
any issues with linking to an image over HTTP or HTTPS
 

Kind regards, Taco Fleur

RE: [WSG] linking to images with //

2008-01-31 Thread Taco Fleur
In the other discussion it was more around how to deal with http and https
CSS images references when the image was remote. The accepted solution goven
by all was to use two different CSS files. My friend Ryan Joy noted
(http://www.atxryan.com/2008/01/22/breaking-with-protocol/
) that using this '//' solved the issue in that it assumes whatever protocol
being used by the delivered server.

That's what I thought it would be useful for as well. The question still
remains; does it work in all browsers? I guess we've cleared up the fact
that it is allowed to reference to an image like this.

RE: [WSG] linking to images with //

2008-01-31 Thread Taco Fleur
On a different note:
Just been speaking with ScanAlert, I tried to get them to understand that
their code does not validate since they used oncontextmenu, and border=0 -
I got a response saying that W3C standards is not widely accepted! 
 
Microsoft is not using it, Google is not using it and all other big
companies are not using it in the US. Apparently they did a lot of research
on this! I had to laugh, but then again, who am I, I could be wrong and they
could be right... Maybe Google and the rest really don't care, I personally
don't think so, but I'm just following the crowd! ;-)

RE: [WSG] linking to images with //

2008-01-31 Thread Taco Fleur
This is interesting!

Are saying it should be src=://images.scanalert.com. Instead of
src=//images.scanalert.com ?

I have not tested it in any other browser than i.e6 and firefox 2

The only reason I found out about the way it was coded was because I got a
report of 404 errors, so I'm thinking you might be right in regards to it
working in some browsers and not in others. 

I got a few 404 errors like
http://www.clickfind.com.au//images.scanalert.com. So I'm guessing the
browser did not detect the schema there.

Hi
It's a bit difficult to work out what is going one given the image itself
seems to be a 1x1 transparent gif. You may find that your browser is
blocking these as they most likely represent web bugs, causing the issue
you see.

the HTML spec redirects URI info to RFC2396. In section 3. URI Syntactic
Components it gives a URI syntax as scheme://authoritypath?query
Further in on section 3.1 it reads:
Relative URI references are distinguished from absolute URI in that
   they do not begin with a scheme name.  Instead, the scheme is
   inherited from the base URI, as described in Section 5.2.

So, you may actually be finding that a URI without a scheme is inheriting
from the base URI. Section 5.1.3 describes how a base URI could be
constructed from the retrieval URI, which I am reading that if no scheme is
present the document scheme is used (http / https / ftp / scp etc etc).

That being said, this is only an RFC so any support of it may be a fluke.
Did you test the issue over various browsers or just one?

HTH

That comes from the margin on the p that is collapsing through the divs
(div#box-1-c p, div#box-2-c p, div#box-3-c p {... margin-bottom:

Set the margin to 0 and that issue disappears.

That is the correct behaviour, btw.

The results (the box above the filter) have this padding at the bottom which

Try 'padding' instead of 'margin', i.e.
ul#result li {

padding: 1em 0 1em 0;
...
}
instead of
{
...
margin: 1em 0 1em 0;

If I need some padding at the top and/or bottom I use padding. Usually it
works in IE/Win

[WSG] list image not showing properly LI

2007-12-06 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,

I have a problem where the list image is not showing properly

form#search-main .li1 {
background: url(/_resource/image/form/step_1.gif) top left
no-repeat;
}

I realize this is not exactly assigning an image to the list item, but I
went down that path before, and it didn't work out either.

The problem I am having now is that in IE7 it doesn't display well when I
specify a height of 3em (see below) and the content is larger than that.

form#search-main li {
height: 3em; 
padding: 0.5em 0 0.5em 50px;
clear: left;
}

The css is on
www.clickfind.com.au/_resource/style/layout/search/default.css

In the end I'll accept any suggestion that displays the numbered icons in
the same position they are now, but not causing problems elsewhere.

Thanks in advance..

Would anyone have any idea what causes the display issue with the line that
start with with... right underneath PayPal?

The page validates by the way.

Thanks in advance.

[WSG] Validation questions

2007-11-26 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,

I have some validation issues presented to me by http://validator.w3.org and
I'm hoping someone can shed a bit more light on them.

I have an error where it says document type does not allow element OL
here
The ol tag is within a formfieldset I don't understand, is this not
allowed?

I have an error where it says end tag for element P which is not open.
The p tag is actually within javascript, within the headscript
I don't see how I can fix this error.

Thanks in advance.

Hi, yes, am using STRICT doctype
OK, if I understand this correctly, all I need to do to fix it is surround
it with a DIV.

Are you using a STRICT doctype?  If so, form tags can only contain block

Hi,

 This sounds like one of those 'its much easier if you show us the code' 
things :)

Yes, its development, don't want Google to pick up on it.

 Move the '/p' into the js too.

It needs to be inline due to coding framework used, the following is the
code:
if ( myArray.length == 0 ) {
myTarget.innerHTML = 'pNo suggestions found/p';
return false;
}

 Perhaps have 'openThingy' and 'closeThingy' functions?

Clearly you are using XHTML.

You have to wrap all your JS with CDATA, I don't have a specific example but
look that up and you'll find your solution.

Thanks.

 It is a little difficult to read. 
Can you elaborate on the above? 

 The fonts scale well. The overall look is nice. But color on color is
sometimes a difficult trick to pull off.

 Hozriontal overlap when fonts are scaled on this page:

What's the size of the font, and what screen size?

[WSG] Call for site check

2007-11-06 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
We have a huge website using CSS that is going out the door next month, and
it is ready for testing after the 15th. This application is to go against
some of the big search engine giants out there ran by large communication
corporations (you know the ones I mean).

Anyone interested can register for testing on http://www.clickfind.com.au/
 
Last time I made cash available for testers, however, for most people it was
more the fun of being able to find holes/bugs that we did not! This time
we'll offer a 6 month listing worth $119.70 for every bug/layout* concern
found.

Anyone interested can find a PDF with demo pages on
http://www.clickfind.com.au/Clickfind-demo1.pdf and register for testing by
submitting your email on http://www.clickfind.com.au/ or sending me an email
on [EMAIL PROTECTED]  

We will provide more details closer to the testing.
 
Thanks and looking forward hearing from you.

*layout/css issues are to be accompanied with a full fix, any other issues,
like application errors etc. can be reported on their own

[WSG] Images not showing on the MAC (JavaScript issue)

2007-07-03 Thread Taco Fleur
Hi all,

I hope its not off-topic, it is after all to do with user friendliness.

I'm using some JavaScript to hide any images that have not loaded properly
or are missing. I don't like seeing the red crosses on a site, it looks
unprofessional.

http://www.sellmystuff.com.au/buystuff/generalstuff/parent-category.cfm?cate
goryIdentity=1

The problem is that on the MAC it removes all images like they have not
loaded properly. It only removes the ones within the HTML, not those placed
by CSS.

Following is the code used to check, obviously isLoadedImage always seems to
return false on the MAC for some reason. Would anyone know why?

function isLoadedImage( obj ) {
 if (!obj.complete) {
  return false;
 }
 if ( typeof obj.naturalWidth != undefined  obj.naturalWidth == 0 ) {
  return false;
 }

return true;
}

function checkImage() {
 for ( var i = 0; i  document.images.length; i++ ) {
  if ( !isLoadedImage( document.images[ i ] ) ) {
   document.images[ i ].style.visibility = hidden;
  }
 }
};
myWindow.doAddOnloadListener( checkImage );

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards, Taco Fleur

[WSG] final layout issues in IE

2007-06-17 Thread Taco Fleur
Hello all,
 
thanks for the help on the previous issue that was solved by adding
'hasLayout' as suggested by Philippe Wittenbergh.
I have one final layout issue to wrap this project up
http://vasco.brucehighway.com/reports-hierarchical-display.htm
I'm hoping someone can identify it or at least in the right direction.
http://vasco.brucehighway.com/_resource/style/reports-hierarchical-display.c
ss

The tree functionality displays perfectly in Firefox when expanding a
selection, however in Internet Explorer it becomes a mess, with some
elements not moving down and staying in place.

I know some people suggested a table layout for this tree structure. For me
the most logical mark-up was a ul list since it had to be indented etc. I
could not change it halfway through.

BTW: The page validates correctly.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure why this sort of tabular information isn't in a table? Tables are
not all evil... I suppose you are going to have expanding/contracting with
the plus button/icon.

Besides that though, you should look into the absolute positioning of some
of the elements you are putting on the page. 

You could always pull them back into line for IE6 alone:

left:auto !important; /* For reasonably standards based browsers */
left:-20px; /* For hideous non-standards based browsers */

Hi,
 
that is correct, #result-tree .c-4 is absolute positioned within a relative
positioned element. To me, if you have a relative positioned element and you
put a absolute positioned element in there with right:0px I expect it to sit
right next to the relative positioned element, correct me if I am wrong?
 
Example;
 
li class=root  positioned relative
 p
  a href=?1 onclick=doCheckAction( this );return false
class=dnDomain A/a
  span class=c-2345/span
  span class=c-38/span
  span class=c-4353/span  positioned absolute
 /p
 
#result-tree ul li {
 clear: right;

}
 
#result-tree .c-4 {
 right: 0px;

heh, funny, I see it as having absolute positioning within firebug when I
inspect one of the numbers in the very right column:


#result-tree .c-4 {reports-hierarchi... (line 102)
right: 0px;
}
#result-tree .c-2, #result-tree .c-3, #result-tree .c-4
{reports-hierarchi... (line 81)
position: absolute;
top:0pt ;
}
p span {text.css (line 7) 
color:#0099CC;
font-weight:bold;
}

Remember that firebug is showing the real-time cascade of the .c-4 styles.
Get firebug if you don't have it! It sometimes helps you diagnose greater
issues in all browsers, even if its a firefox-only extension. 

In terms of the expanding/contracting feature determining if its a table or
a list: I actually believe it is safe to have this kind of UI feature within
a table cell, and the data still be tabular in nature. The expand/contract
is simply offering more detailed information for that particular cell of a
particular row. 

The added semantic benefits of a table might be worth your while, besides
the fact that it will make the implementation of your css/xhtml far easier
and be visually consistent over more browsers (thinking older 5.0 browsers
here too).

With regards to that, I got a YAHOO javascript error on IE6 while trying to
expand/contract, which indicates to me that whoever is implementing the
client side is using YUI. That might not be the best choice if you are
concerned with older browsers, Yahoo have pretty much written off version 5
browsers...

Karl

[WSG] making form elements the same height

2007-05-25 Thread Taco Fleur
Hi all,
 
I have a question I hope one of you might be able to answer.

http://www.clickfind.com.au/test-index.html

I am trying to get the form elements the same height, I would expect that
the following would do the trick;

input.text {
border: 1px solid #A9D46F;
height: 1.2em;
font-size: 1em;
margin: 0;
padding: 0.2em;
}
input.submit {
border: 1px solid #99;
height: 1.2em;
font-size: 1em;
margin: 0;
padding: 0.2em;
}

But it does not, and I do not understand why, I would like to understand why
it does not.

Also, is there any way to align the text on the left hand side of the text
field to the middle of the textfield?

Thanks in advance for any help.

2007-05-25 Thread Taco Fleur
Thanks guys and girls...
This is helpful.. Not the answers I was hoping for, but it certainly helps.

I am slowly building a JavaScript library that will replace the HTML
elements with elements that I can style, so it should eventually not be a
problem anymore. 

PS. :-) I had 6.5 Million there first, changed it and forgot to remove the
million, thanks for pointing it out though.
 BTW, 5,712,590 million = 5,712,590,000,000

Hi Taco

Form Submit buttons are system-level widgets - they're different shapes and
sizes according to which browser/OS combination is in use. They're
notoriously difficult to style, as in most instances, being generated at the
system level, they just won't accept css styling. Have you thought about
using a custom image, which you can make the size you want?

This is only a partial answer, of course, as an image (unless it's sized in
ems or %) won't enlarge as the text is enlarged. You already have a problem
in that regard, as one level of enlargement is enough to cause your Submit
button to wrap to the next line... (I'm viewing in Safari/Mac - and the
Submit button also doesn't resize with text - it's just pushed around.)

BTW, 5,712,590 million = 5,712,590,000,000

Yes I agree a min width would be good, if not maybe look into png
transparency for the floating logo.

Thanks.

How large did you size the font to? We've only anticipated 1 size up, as its
already a large font. You can't win in every situation ;-)

Taco,

Everything looks real good with one exception which should be an easy fix:

The yellow bar.  As you increase the text size, the yellow bar does not
expand with it.  The content instead eventually hides as it passes the
bottom of the bar.  If the yellow bar and the drop shadow below it are one
image, I would simply separate them and make the drop shadow a top-place
background image below the yellow bar so the bar itself can expand without
breaking said shadow.

That sounds confusing - heres a screenshot in WinXP/IE6.  Firefox 2 does the
same thing FYI:

May I add that your suggestion would work.

However we'd have to deal with other issues like the new white space (bottom
of yellow to white gradient) that would appear from the font-increase etc.

Don't worry, I'm not one of these nuts who blows up the text to 1200% or

the about the equivalent to 2 sizes up on Firefox.

RE: [WSG] H1 not aligning to top

2006-03-21 Thread Taco Fleur
I got it fixed in Firefox, now in Internet Explorer there is the white line
above the H1.

I can't seem to figure out why if I put a clear: left on 
h1 {
font-size: 120%;
color: #009933;
margin: 0px;
padding: 20px 0px 10px 20px;
background: #D7F1D1;
}
The white space comes back in Firefox? 
Agreed about the list, to much hassle though at this stage, let me get this
right first.

It's fine now except the white line above the H1 in Internet Explorer.

 All browsers have a default style sheet, and there's 
 differences between the default styles in different browsers, 
 so there's no such thing as 'no style'. The closest you'll 
 get is to specify the same padding, margins, font etc as your 
 most common browser displays when no author styles are specified.

Let's say I have my 
global style sheet where I style my ph1 etc. but on one page I 
have a div with id #editableArea
I want that div to 
have no style applied that is defined in the style sheet, is that 
possible?

Thanks,

[WSG] [OT] Flyout Menu (Semantically correct plus more ...)

2006-01-18 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox



Dear 
all,

I posted a message a 
while ago in regards to a _javascript_ fly out menu, received lot's of feedback 
and links, thanks.

I had a look at all 
the options and found all of them were very bulky in code and very difficult to 
understand, exceptto the programmer who created it. 
Also none were very 
easily customisable or semantically correct, or only had two levels or a fixed 
number of levels deep.

I have since sat 
down and wrote down some ideas and have programmed some of it, so far it's about 
50 lines of _javascript_ and working well with some things still to be implemented 
and improved on.

The reason I am 
writing to this list is because I am hoping there are some people out there who 
would like to assist with making this product cross-browser, improve and assist 
in further development, make sure it stays semantically correct, work some fancy 
CSS into it and help with fixing up the _javascript_ so it will be 
stable.

I'd like to make 
this product available to the public for free once finished, so the only thing 
in it for youwould be the credit you receive for helping 
out and being part of something great. If this does not appeal to anyone, then I 
am also willing to actually pay someone to help out with the above and make the 
product commercially available.

2006-01-18 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox
I could be completely wrong here, and I am sure you will tell me so if
that's the case.
But I would think that a menu that has sub menus would need to be displayed
as the following for it to be semantically correct;

ol
li
a href=#/a
ol
li
a href=#/a
ol
li
a href=#/a
/li
/ol
/li

Am I wrong? As for pointing out the ones that aren't, I won't go there.

 ULs convey meaning also - perhaps better than OLs. However, there are 
 flyout menus that don't use contiguous lists and they can be good, 
 too. An example would be Opera's menu:
 http://www.opera.com
 
 or our Tab Bar menu:
 http://projectseven.com/products/menusystems/tbm/index.htm
 
 
 Two of the most often recommended commercial menu tools use 
 contiguous 
 lists:
 1. http://www.brothercake.com/dropdown/
 2. http://projectseven.com/products/menusystems/pmm/index.htm
 
 
 And for basic, single level menus, where enhancements or usability 
 features are not required, there is the infamous Suckerfish menu.
 http://www.htmldog.com/articles/suckerfish/dropdowns/
 
 All in all, there are lots of poorly designed menu systems (I won't 
 name names either), but there are some good ones.
 
 In terms of both standards and accessibility, this article might

[WSG] CSS or JavaScript flyout menu

2006-01-10 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox



I am looking for some ideas on how to create a 
_javascript_/CSS fly-out menu, the dreaded 
day has come that a client finally insisted on using one!

I need to custom write it because it needs to be 
integrated with a CMS.I started working on the structure (see below)I'd like to generate the menu 
from, but that's where it ended.

Has anyone got some ideas code samples etc.? Any 
help would be much appreciated.

var menu = new Object();

menu[ "about_bdsrecruit" ] = new Object(); 


menu[ "about_bdsrecruit" ][ "vision_mission" ] = 
new Object(); menu[ "about_bdsrecruit" ][ "vision_mission" ][ "value" ] = 
"Vission/Mission"; menu[ "about_bdsrecruit" ][ "vision_mission" ][ "link" ] 
= "/about/bdsrecruit/vision/";

 Make them all links if you like, I just omitted the a 
 elements for simplicity.
 
 CSS:
 li ul { display: none; }
 li:hover ul { display: block; }
 /* Plus whatever styles you want to make it look good and

 JS:
 Attach mouseover and mouseout event listeners to the li 
 elements to show and hide the sub menus.
 
 Google for Pure CSS Menus, Suckerfish Dropdowns CSS/JS

The li

Thanks, so this conditional style will only work in Internet Explorer is that 
right?
Sorry, just never used anything like this, if something didn't work I just did 
it another way, never implemented a hack for something.

Question; is there some reading material in regards to this problem that I am 
having that you know off?

 Conditional statements are, in my opinion, the best way to 
 handle IE hacks (especially with the likely introduction of 
 more problems to deal with when IE7 is released).  You can 
 just take the route of adding IE hacks into your css if you 
 are not familiar with the if, then, else types of 
 conditional scripting.
 
 An example conditional statement is:
 !--[if IE]
 style
  /style
 
 ![endif]--
  - with your IE styling included between the tags. Note: you 
 put this into the pages either by hardcoding or calling 
 through an include.
 
 I hope this helps.

[WSG] Looking for semantically correct solution

2005-11-30 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox



On www.brisbane-webdesign.com there 
are two background imageson the page, both included within the mark-up 
instead of in the CSS as a background.
The reason for doing 
this is so that the background stretches when the browser is resized, what I 
wonder is; is there a better way to do this?

Also, whydoes 
the mark-up provided by W3C for the Valid HTML img (see bottom of the 
page)have a p element? Surely it is not a paragraph, is 
it?

 Change the image alignment from top to bottom
 
 img {
vertical-align: bottom;
border: 0;
 }
 
 Incidentally, the html doesn't validate, partly because you have 
 no alt attributes on a number of images.  If they don't need alt 
 text (i.e. they are just for visual effect), consider putting 
 them in the css as background images.

[WSG] Problem in firefox

2005-11-05 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox
Title: Message



I have a problem in 
firefox where it displays a white area where there should not be 
one.

http://www.ozblackberry.com/index.cfm 
is fine, simply because I put a 1px white border around the #content_text, but 
if I remove that and look at http://www.ozblackberry.com/index2.cfmthere 
is a white space and I have no idea where it is coming from.

http://www.ozblackberry.com/_resource/style/default.css

Also, I am still 
having troubles with my ol list, I set ol to 37px height, and I set 
li to 30px height, but no matter what I set the height for li 
to, it won't display. I am about to do away with list and just use floating 
divs.

Any help would be 
appreciated.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

I'm a bit uneasy about this. I don't want a border, and I certainly don't
want 0 margin on my paragraph elements, isn't there another solution?

 Collapsing margins[1], and Firefox, Opera and other good

 Either set top and bottom margins to zero on paragraphs 
 inside #content_text, or put a narrow border or padding on 
 #content_text.
 
 You can also define space between paragraphs with paddings 
 and zero out margins, and avoid the problem that way.

OK, so I added a border at the top of 1px and added a negative margin of
1px, this seems to solve it, thanks.

Any idea on the other problem with the ol list?

  Play around with your margin and padding on the a 
  elements - padding: 0.2em 1em;. It's probably pushing the borders 
  out.
  
  I've got a list for horizontal navigation where the first 
  list item wouldn't show it's right border (separator) in IE no matter what I 
  did in the stylesheet. Adding a space before to emulate the padding I wanted 
  anyway ended up doing the trick.
  
  NB: You linked to the wrong stylesheet. It was all in the 
  page. ;)

[WSG] Weird displacement

2005-10-28 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox
Title: Message



Is anybody able to 
shed some light on why on http://www.startregistration.com/domain/register/ 
the first fieldset is touching the left border of the form, but each subsequent 
fieldset is like indented and not touching the border?

Then there is also 
the problem of the "Contact Information" fieldset having a margin under each 
row, but all the other fields sets do not. The CSS is the same for all 
forms.

Any help is 
appreciated.

PS. The page does 
not validate, but the issues it shows I am sure do attribute to the problems, 
i.e. ALT tags missing etc.

Hi,

Browser is Internet Exploder.

Image map is because I don't really like fooling around matching the gifs with 
the background. Plus I send an email to this list a while back asking whether 
it was bad to have an image map, I believe the answer was no ;-)
By all means convince me not to use it.

 This article is kind of outdated, but it's currently the 
 Editor's Choice piece on A List Apart (issue 206)
 
 http://alistapart.com/articles/imagemap
 
 That example is more complex than what yours would need, 
 though. If you combine your primary and secondary banner divs 
 into one, you can use one background image instead of two, 
 and stick two lists inside it (The top right links, and the 
 bottom left links in two different lists).
 
 This also means if you wanted rollovers it's relatively 
 painless to do (using :hover pseudo selectors and sprite 
 backgrounds). You'd need to make the list items line up, yes, 
 but you could use the same image as for the main background 
 and just use background-position to get it right (so you 
 don't have to create another five images manually).
 
 Hope that made some kind of sense...

[WSG] Never ending cross browser problems! Lets just do IE!

2005-10-19 Thread Taco Fleur - Pacific Fox
Title: Message



OK, so I have 
started fresh, and this time started testing in FireFox first (the page 
validates). Everything going well, except that in Firefox there is a space 
between the top banner and banner underneath, thus breaking up the wording "the 
right way".
I also can't seem to 
figure out what the whitespace space is that covers the two columns just under 
the "Domain Extension Lists".
Not to bad, just two 
problems in Firefox.

But now when I look 
at it in Mozilla or Internet Explorer everything is a mess, I am at a loss here, 
is it even possible to achieve the same result for all 3 browsers? I am guessing 
its not, so that puts me in a position where I need to choose between the 
browsers, and I will need to go for IE, or I go back to a table layout, which I 
am sure will work in all browsers but will make me look like a fool in the Web 
Standards community, again, I have to choose for number one as I am 
inbusiness to make money, and my clients pay me not the Web Standards 
community.

UNLESS someone very 
wise is able to help me out I am tossing up between just IE or Table layout 
HELP!
