I'm dropping this little chunk of code in there that tries to pull style attributes from fields. What I'm attaching you can copy right into an .rb file and run. You can also toggle from IE to Firefox. I'm not sure if this was the best page to test against but since I'm asking for lots of help here I figured I would make it as easy as possible for someone to see and try what I am up against. So if anyone has a few minutes to give it a shot that would be much appreciated. thanks every one for the help.
