  1. I posted a topic similar to this a while ago, but here is a more complicated version: HERE is the problem! Scroll down a bit and you will see several montages of photos. Each one of these is a PhotoShop creation, so each one is a "picture of pictures" Can this kind of layout be created with CSS? HOW? With in-line styling for each pix? My client would like to see complete "alt" attributes for each picture and that is just not happening with this layout! Hep me! Can you? Alfie
  2. HMM! I copy/pasted your code into my index page using chimneyrockinn.net for the "Your-website" and Chimney Rock Inn, NC for the "Name Of The Bookmark". When I tried to click on the link, nothing happened. But that is not too surprising as I was viewing the site off of my home computer. Should this work if I post it on the net? In other words did I use your code correctly? (I am more than a little ignorant about javascript!) Thanks again! Alfie
  3. My customer would like to add a "Bookmark this Page" to his index page I see there is software available on the net for that, but how "safe" are those downloads and can anyone here give me some code to do the same? Much thanks! Alfie
  4. @Ben That was not the whole answer, but surely the good answer! Why are you not incredibly wealthy and world renowned? With answers like that you should have riches bestowed upon yourself! (Flowers. instead, showered upon you!) (Can you tell I am doing a "happy dance" here?) THIS is what it looks like now. Cheers! Alfie
  5. I have this table with four "row-groups" of categories. I would like to shade the groups differently. I know about <colgroup> and <colspan>. I have tired styling the <tr>'s with CSS. I tried to enclose the needed <tr>'s in a div. None of that worked worth a spit in a windstorm! THIS is where you can find the table. I want to group "Amenities" and its associated items. Then "provided" etc. Awaiting an answer that will make me swear at my stupidity! Cheers! Alfie
  6. Thanks Andrea, that would work. I have ten of these montages to do, with five or six other pictures added to each, so I think a Photoshop solution is probably the way to go for me. The only problem with that is that search engines will not be able to read any of my captions, but that is probably not a great concern at this level. Alfie
  7. Well! It's a bit like comparing apples and oranges. They are both fruits, and therefore related. So it is with graphics-design and web-design. Graphics is a wide field: Industrial design, illustration, fashion design, advertising design etc. and including web design - as far as designing the LAYOUT of a web-site. Web design is more technical in that you will need to learn basic HTML and CSS as well as some computer languages such as php and others. This will teach you how to make your graphic web layout functional as a web-site. Both fields are intensely competitive! So in order to make a decent living at it, you have to be GOOD at it! The key is Practice, practice, practice and learn, learn learn! Good luck! Alfie
  8. Hi! I am trying to create a picture montage where the individual photos (and their captions) are overlapping. Hopefully this can be done with in-line styling, but I forget how to do that! See This attempt where the little pix is below the big one. I want to move the little one up on top of the big one. OR Would I be better off just creating the montage in Photoshop and presenting it as just one composite image? Thanks! Alfie
  9. Let me just go away and hang my head in shame for even posting that original comment. I'm a turnip-headed Swede, what more need I say? Alfie
  10. BTW, the "fix" works just a well with a padding of (much) less than 10px! I have now reduced it to padding: 4px 0; and everything centers up vertically and beautifully! Tara-tarata-tata: - (Still doing that happy dance!) Thanks Susie, one of the best answers I have received since "Billy Boy" spanked me for a silly interpretation of something! I don't want to leave any of you guys and gals out of my kudos. You know who you are and you are all going to heaven! Alfie
  11. Eddie, thou art an artist and now a friend! Most excellent answer and I thank you. I have forwarded my question and your answer to my client. Now it is up to him as to how he will respond. Many thanks! Alfie
  12. In the ongoing saga of my client's efforts to increase the traffic to his site via "keywords" he posed the following question to me: If we use "Lake Lure cabin rentals" is that the same as using the words separately?" i.e. "lake lure" and "cabin" and "rentals"? My first reaction would be to use "Lake Lure" and "Cabin rentals" Any thoughts? Alfie
  13. So! The removal of the "overflow: auto;" fixed the scrollbar problem. (I still haven't figured out why the hell it was there in the first place!) Now I shall work on making the footer nav into a proper list. Thank you so very much! Alfie
  14. WOW Susie, that worked like a charm! The only thing I had to add was padding: 10px 0; to my "div#nav li" to make the "current" list-item the same height as the rest. Doing a happy dance here! Alfie
  15. OK Eagle-eye Andrea! I have no clue as to why I have that "overflow" bit in there. I shall check the list-coding of my footer nav. Thank so much for the typo flag! All best! Alfie
  16. Same problem site as mentioned recently. THIS SITE. I would like to more vertically align the text in the menu items at left. But note the two-line item towards the bottom of the list. I suspect the only way to do that is to use "in-line styling", but I conveniently forgot how to do that since being beat about the head regarding how NOT to do that! Thanks! Alfie
  17. I am playing around with THIS site. I just tested it in IE7 and IE6, and in those I get scroll-bars along the side and bottom as in This screenshot. (Don't know whether that screenshot will come through!) IE8 and up and FF works just dandy. I am sure it has to do something with IE's quirky margins, but I don't know the fix for it! If there is a fix, should I bother? Alfie
  18. Thanks Eddie. Good concise answer! Now what about "robot" calls in the header? What does it do? Thanks! Alfie
  19. Absolutely correct virtual. I tried an about 15px cut and it looks TOO repetitive. I shall change it to the original "repeat" pattern which is about 100px high. Thanks so much for all your brilliant inputs! Alfie
  20. I have been reading a bit on the web regarding SEO and the use of keywords. When they mention "keywords", do they mean the words listed in the meta-tags (<meta name="keywords". . .>), or do they mean key words in headers etc.? Or both? Thanks! Alfie
  21. You know! Just after sending that reply to you Andrea, I was driving down the highway to do some errands, and thinking: "Andrea is not stupid! I am!" Then the real intent of your answer hit me: "OF COURSE YOU DUMB SWEDE, THE MAIN DIV GOES ON TOP OF THE GREEN!!" Brilliant! and yes Eddie's is even more brilliant! Thanks both of you, you clever devils... Alfie
  22. Clever and very quick answer Andrea. However, the customer would never buy it design-wise. Thanks though! Alfie
