Tables within CSS sheets
I'm very new to CSS, so I have a question:

When I used to make websites using HTML, I would "cut" up my banner image into smaller segments and then reassemble them using a table.

I wanted to take my current banner, "cut out" the top left corner and insert a small animated .gif in that corner, with the same color background in the cell..

Is it possible to do this with CSS, and if so, how?

Currently, this is the code I am using (thanks to cartonage and their LJ - I would ask for their help, but they are on hiatus ^_^)


The header codeCollapse )

page filter?
I've searched around a little and was wondering if there is a way to have a div container appear for X amount of seconds after the page is opened?

CSS cursor
How can I get a custom cursor (little PNG to be exact, not that it matters) to be in effect for the entire viewport? Right now, I have the style attached to BODY. But the BODY element does not extend all the way to the left/right/top of the viewport, and when the content is short, there's a biiiig space at the bottom too, where the cursor reverts to standard.

long story short: I'm trying to make a CSS for my journal with a Nightwish theme. I got a (quite outdated) style sheet from deviantart.com (which may very well have been my first mistake) and I replaced the images it had with my own. I get on here and IT WONT WORK!! My journal gets all pushed over on the right with maybe an inch showing and my background's all in a line down the center and my header image just sits there, laughing at me. I'll be the first to admit I dont know CRAP about CSS really, so I have no idea what went wrong!
Could somebody help me??

All the CSS junk and instructions are in this journal.

thank you very much for your help

Hope someone can help with this problem,
I'm new to css...  so forgive noob questions.

I cant get this image to align properly

<div class="contentYellow">
  <p><img src="help.gif" width="132" border="0" height="159"></p>

<div class="contentYellowText">



padding:12px 0 0;

It works fine if there are no <p> tags around the image,
but the cms I am using puts the <p> tags in. 

I have tried
.contentYellow p{
.contentYellow img{

Thanks in advance

Mystery Gap
Hi all!

Have a look at this page: http://thelastdaysofdecadence.com/saturdays/index.html

Viewed in IE it looks exactly as it should, but in FF there's a mystery gap underneath the main content div (dark grey) where the blue grey background shows through.

I'm stumped as to why this could be. Any thoughts would be greatly welcomed.

Super Dumb Question
Ok, I've got a super dumb question, but I figured I'd ask rather than not.

Hypothetical (or not so much...) situation: Let's say for instance I have a form that was pre-generated and given to me. I don't have access to change the form, but I do have access to skin it. I get everything all nice and hunky dorey based off of the design I was given, until I get to the submit button.

Now, keep in mind, I can't change the actual HTML on this form. All I can do is apply a style sheet to it.

Can the value (and preferably the arrow too) of <input type="submit" /> be changed via CSS?

Like I said, duuuuuuumb question. But humor me?

live test page: http://www.haremjewel.com/ulli.html

In firefox & safari my codes work perfectly!

but in IE, my div's are not lined up where they need to be.

2 small pictures under cut..Collapse )

note: if you go to the live page, and click around on the nav links, all the pages are fine in all browsers, only problem is: in safari my nav links don't not work (besides home page) because my div's are overlapped. THE ONE TEST PAGE GIVEN ABOVE, is me trying to change my overlapping divs to divs next to eachother.

I now just can't get them to be in the center of all browsers. help!

I don't know how to describe my level of know how with css, and my question is probably very off topic. I think there should be an easier way to find support for maploco.com troubleshooting. My question leans more toward a need for a hacking solution rather than a what-am-I-doing-wrong assist.

My objective is to have maploco display on my profile with all the hits received from people who enter my slavezombie blog. I have included the necessary code, the <img src… display code as well as the <a href… code, in the main lj page, although I've hidden the map image behind a layer, and the link displays as part of the menu section of my blog. This seems to have worked before, but somewhere in my query I've read that maploco reserves the right to disrupt visitor display on the map if an account holder is found to be hacking by receiving visitor counts from several different URLs.

Is there a way to trick the maploco server so that the visitors I receive are displayed in the profile area of my lj account that I specify? The technique I'm using, or something similar, use to work fine. Then I noticed that I was receiving visits that the map was NOT updating and I began to troubleshoot it. At this point, I receive zero visitation icons on the map image, while the visitation list continues to keep count.

CSS Centering
I'm doing some work for a client. Validating HTML / CSS -- He's working in transitional HTML.

I'm coming up with a problem.

Here's the page: http://www.fireplace-advisor.com/clean_version/wood-burning-patterns-template.html

Client wants:
"Cool Wood Burning Patterns" and the google ads to be centered.

I've tried a couple things to center them but they don't seem to be working. Any ideas?

Other problem:

Original Page: http://www.fireplace-advisor.com/
Page after making code valid: http://www.fireplace-advisor.com/clean_version/index_clean.html

You'll notice there are differences in the appearance. Specifically the fact the purple side bar continues on the original version, but doesn't on the other. Also, the size at which the page is displayed is different as well.

Any idea how to make them be the same.

LAST POST i promise!
I just want to say thank you to everyone who has given me tips and advice to fix my website... SO FAR, with the adjustments I have made, It is working exactly how I want it too! at least in IE, firefox, and safari!

-all of the gray text boxes are centered in the page, with text aligned left, and move with page size
-the pictures are centered and move with the page size

thank you! and if anyone else has a different browser please check it out and tell me if anything seems out of place or weird... http://www.haremjewel.com

the only pages completed are the home/main page, booking, and contact. Thanks you guys
1:35 pm
Okay, I fixed a few things on my site, I used http://validator.w3.org/ to see if everything was ok, and my booking & contact pages passed completely. My main haremjewel page had 3 errors, but those 3 codes are not mine... they are part of bluvoda's codes that they will not let me delete, but it doesnt affect anything on ym page, so I didnt care since all my codes were all good. BUT all the text and pictures are perfectly in all the right spots, EXCEPT for IE... haha safari and firefox are fine, but in IE, my main picture and text are on the left hand side.. what codes should I put in that will center the box and my picture without using the center tag, because that center tag messes up the view on safari and firefox! my page is http://www.haremjewel.com

thank you for anyone who can help!

compilation of @font-face definitions?
Is there any place that compiles font metrics for use in @font-face declarations? With this CSS becoming more widely implemented, I'd like to be able to specify the metrics of the fonts I want to use, and let the browser do best-match if my choice is not available.

IE6 grr - I need :first-child help!

I have a real problem and I need some help! I have a content managed site where I cannot edit the HTML so my only options are javascript and CSS. I have a really simple menu which basically looks like this:-

<*li>First line<*/li>
<*li>Second line<*/li>

(without the stars)

I want to make the first li display: none which I've done in with ul li:first-child {display: none} but of course this doesn't work in good old IE6!

Can anyone point me in the direction of a pure css/javascript way to do this? I've been all over google and a lot of people suggest adding a class (which I can't do because I can't edit the HTML) and the only JS way of doing it that I've found I can't make work :(

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks :)

Any help would be appreciated!

I've been asked to create a standard XHTML/CSS website by a client, which I can do no problem, but they've decided they want to have a couple of pages that they update themselves using some kind of CMS system.

I really don't want to go down the full CMS route (Joomla etc) because that will involve php/databases etc and contribute is full of bugs IMO.

Does anyone know of a (preferably free) system or method I can use so they can edit the text on just a couple of pages?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

CSS tags being ignored
Okay, this is starting to drive me bonkers.

I have a dropdown menu, I've set up the styles yet part of the declarations within one style are being ignored.

You can see the sample here: http://www.pezessed.com/temp/navigation.html
CSS: http://www.pezessed.com/temp/layout.css

I've got the following CSS for the dropdown menu. The bolded tags are the ones not working. I know it's linked properly because if I change the font size, then the font size changes in the drop downs. It's taking the information from the ul#topnav li a

ul#topnav li ul li a {
text-transform : none;
padding: 1px 5px;
display : block;
font-size : 11px;
text-align : left;

Any ideas? I'm about ready to rip out my hair. I'm sure it's something really small and really dumb, but I can't seem to figure it out.
