    Odd black area popping up

    Ben - You are my hero! It's amazing how little things can rattle us so much... I had been staring at it for so long that I missed that. Thanks for being a spare set of eyes!
  2. Hello everyone! I hope you can help me. I'm working on a website that I have temporarily hosted here. I have a repeating png file as the background of the main container, and all other elements (other than the header) are set to have no background color. The header and content areas are in another wrapper (labeled "container2") apart from the navbar. The problem? I have this weird black box showing up in the navbar area, and I don't understand where it's coming from. The navbar has javascript that expands it (and a separate css file), but that is all set to have no background as well. Please take a look and let me know if you have any thoughts. Thanks in advance!

  3. I got the sidebar color to go all the way down by adding a footer and having it clear. Should've known that!
  4. Wondering if you may help me again... not sure if I should start a new topic. I'd like the color for the sidebar to remain the same all the way through to the bottom. I've tried several things... I created an image to use as the background, and in worked perfectly when repeated in the background of the navbar div. I had thought that making it as the background of the container (positioned left and repeating) would cause it to go all the way to the bottom of the page. When I used it as the bg of the container, it wouldn't even repeat, despite all attempts. I tried using a solid color as the background of the container, and that won't work either. Any thoughts? BTW, I'm working on doing CSS the "right" way. Before I had been drawing AP Divs and making everything fixed, which is how I got around this before. Thanks again for helping! Karen
  5. THANK YOU so much! I wrapped header and content in their own div and floated it left, then put 1px padding on content like you said, and all is well now! I really appreciate it!! Karen
  6. For example, I'm working on this site and everything worked beautifully... Like I said, the different layout is playing with me. Funny thing is that this is a revamp of my own site. I feel like a dork for not being able to figure it out.
  7. This is the first time I've had the sidebar div going all the way to the top. If I have a vertical navbar, it's usually under the header div. I guess that's what's messing me up. I tried adding a background color to the p tag, but it didn't really help me. Thanks for your help! Karen
  8. It's not yet uploaded anywhere, but here's the file so you can see the code. index.html
  9. Hi, everyone! Hoping you can help me. I'm working on a project and created a new CSS rule for <p> to have 10 px margin on all sides. For some reason, it's still smashed up against the sides of the div. I've looked at it a bunch to no avail. I've done this successfully before, but I wonder if I inadvertently did something differently. CSS file is attached. Thanks a bunch in advance! Karen style.css
  10. Thank you so much!! I have looked at it over and over and hadn't noticed that <p>. I guess you miss stuff when you look at it for too long. I found it in another cell, too, and was able to remove it. All fixed! I'm sure I'll be back here when I have more issues! Thanks again! Karen
  11. Hello, everyone! I'm an intermediate web designer who has been in business for over a year. I'm taking Stefan's web design course to pick up stuff I haven't learned and add to my knowledge base. This is my first post... I'm neither a beginner nor advanced, so I had a hard time deciding where to post. Here's my problem: I have a page designed using CSS, but I have information that needs rows and columns, so I placed it in a table. I have checked, double checked, and everything else I can think of, up to and including deleting the table and remaking it from scratch, but some of the information is still not in line... on the top row, of course! Each cell is set up using left and top alignment, and everything looks fine in Dreamweaver, but browser previews (in several browsers) still have it out of line. Any thoughts? Is there a better way for me to organize this information? Here's the URL: http://hathawaytower.com/listings.html Thanks so much in advance!! Karen
