[WSG] need to get a negative margin working

2008-10-28 Thread kevin mcmonagle

div id=leftcol


a href=#
h2 class=cosanhead
*(I need this heading to have a negative left margin over the leftcol 
div but it wont budge)*

/h2
/a
..
/div



heres the css :


a:link h2.cosanhead {
height:90px; margin-left:-57px; width:150px;
background-image:url(cosanlogodormant.jpg);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
border:0px solid black;
}

a:hover h2.cosanhead, h2.cosanheadactive {
background-image: url(../images/cosanlogo.jpg);
background-repeat:no-repeat;
border:0px solid white;
}


is it something about it not being block level?

Hi,

Try swapping the order of the h2 and anchor to start with, the solution 
will be a lot easier.

This is invalid markup, you can't nest block-level elements inside As
