Sorry I haven't got time to test a fix for you, Jackie, but I notice that your div class=clear doesn't seem to have a closing tag ... perhaps that's causing the problems? Cheers, Mike On Thursday, March 4, 2004, at 06:22 PM, Jackie Reid wrote: In my wisdom i have decided to revamp a site

Chris, I can't help directly, but just in case you haven't tried this yet ... You can alter the styles for the current page throughout your site by assigning each page body and each li in your navigation list a unique id, then setting up some descendant selector rules, eg. HTML: body

Hi Rosie, The div's not misbehaving, it's the floated image ... but that's how floats are meant to work. Clearing the float by adding dl { clear:both; } to your stylesheet will give you what you want. Cheers, Mike On Tuesday, June 8, 2004, at 11:46 PM, Rosie Norwood wrote: Hi all, Sorry for

Hi Jason, If you do want to use an image rather than an entity, you can style it to display inline with a height width of 1em (or something else to your preference). It scales just fine. I haven't checked this across many browsers, but it should be widely supported. Cheers, Mike On Monday,

Wayne, It *is* confusing. But, yes, a separate stylesheet, loaded via conditional comments is the most future proof method. Not exactly what Phillipe is describing, but along the same lines. Perhaps this will help get you going: http://phonophunk.phreakin.com/news/?p=46 Cheers, Mike

Hi Nick, That's not really a standards-related question ... nonetheless, here's sample code which will do what you want :-) Feel free to remove the $(document).ready wrapper if you're including it at the end of your DOM as shown. Adjust it for your library of choice if you prefer something
