2005-11-15 Thread ivanovitch
Dear all I've been trying very hard to propel myself into the 21st century and apply web standards and use good CSS as much as possible, but I'm stuck on getting a div to honour a hover state that I am trying to build. Guidance appreciated... The demo page is at http://imeet.com.au/aa2/ - it's

ivanovitch The demo page is at http://imeet.com.au/aa2/ - it's cut right backto highlight my problem. Ignore the content, and the site URL I'm trying to find a way to make blocks of text in a div (item) to display the hover background for the entire div, and not just the linked text.

Thanks for the prompt response, Tim - but your suggestion did not alter the output (in my browser, at least). Sounded plausible, though... Anyone else? On 14/11/05, Tim Burgan [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: If I remember correctly (others, please correct me if I'm wrong).. Make your links block

Nope: it's the demo page that is failing. Might be the browser (I'm using Safari and Firefox at present, and rebuilding my Windows box after a trojan popped in). We're only talking a few pixels: the text does show the hover state, but if I were to use a table cell, the entire cell would show it.

This is a really brief answer, but should get you started on the right track to thinking about the C in CSS =) First, some house work: id must be unique, class can be reused on any number of elements. Second, the following demonstrates the use of the cascade - C - to color the author class:

Tried height adjustments (0, 1, 99%) in Safari, but no dice. It seems as though the padding (needed here) is getting in the way no matter what. I didn't think that the full-width div color would be so tricky. I think that I can work my head around Terence's advice on the text color (Thanks,
