  1. Thanks, Benjamin! I added the float to the css element, tweaked the margins, and...BINGO! Check it out! Hopefully, one of these days, I'll retain all this basic information - still learnin'! And Andrea, as always, thanks for watching out for all us novices!
  2. Hey, Andrea! I'm going to have drop down into SA (I'm in Wimberley) and buy you some coffee - you keep pulling me out of the fire! Yeah, I tried to attach an excel sheet to show what I have in mind, but the forum wouldn't let me attach that kind of file. So...I've attached the images I want to use. Here's the plan: (left side of header)the ole cowboy logo (space)the texas flag - centered on the logo (space)the links displayed as they are Every time I try to line them up, the flag drops below the logo - do you want me to make the change, and re-post, so it makes more sense?
  3. Good morning! Here we go again...every time I think I'm getting the hang of things, something goes awry! I have a long image in the header of this site I'm playing with. I'd like to change it to two square images, next to each other with a break between them, and the page links unaffected (as is). Trouble is, no matter what I do, I end up with the flag below the logo! What the heck am I missing? css is attached. Thanks for your help! Have a great day, and God bless! olecowboy_style.css
  4. Thanks, Corrine! As soon as I saw your reply, I remembered that I had been playing with the page - just forgot to put the css code back the way it was! it's always something simple.... Thanks again! Problem solved. Have a great day, and God bless!
  5. Good morning, all! I am completing a basic site for a client, and all appears good in my offline editor and on my monitor at home. I was at work early this morning, and wanted to look at something on the site while it was on my mind. When it loaded, the site was off-center, and the content page was to the left of the header, instead of directly below. Both my home computer and the one at work use IE, but the monitor at work is one of those wide ones. Any way I can fix that with my css (attached)? Or is this simply a monitor problem? The client's site is here. Thanks for your help...have a great day, and God bless!
  6. Or do a blog at one of the popular blogging sites - they're free!
  7. Good evening! Thanks to killersites tutorials, these forums, and various other sources, I'm getting better at utilizing css. But as I work on streamlining things, I find contradictory teachings. "Ugh, tables!" in one spot, how to use css to form your tables in another, tables are best for forms in another...very confusing. Then I find that <p> has been deprecated, as has <font>. But in order to make things appear properly, I should define <p> in the css! What if I want to change the css-set font for a word or two in a paragraph? For example, css has the font for the main content set at normal black, verdana, 12px - how do I make a word or two a different color from the rest without using <font color="xxxxxx">? Example on the home page of one of my sites I'm rebuilding (thanks to hackers). Several sources have indicated that my submission form - found here - should be set up using strictly css, but then others say if you want a better lined-up look, set tables for the form inside css! By the way, html validation shows that the form I have should have all the <label> elements removed - if I do that, will the form still work OK? After reading through many of the posts here, and going through the w3school tutorials, I'm not real clear on what's correct. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help and input - and for letting me vent a little! Have a great evening, and God bless!
  8. Not sure what I did wrong before, but I went back and tried again....success! Am now in the process of deleting all those extra lines! Much cleaner html! Thanks, Wickham! Have a great day, and God bless!
  9. I tried to search this, but the search was blocked for using the word "border". So here's what I'm trying to do: My navigation column contains an "hr" divider between each link anchor, but I use an image instead of a straight hr. Check the left column here. That's quite a bit of <li>image</li> coding! I thought there's a way to add the "texashr.gif" to the css for the nav-left ul, but apparently I've gotten incorrect information on how to do that. here's the css for the left nav column: #nav-left { background-color:#ebe0cc; text-align:center; width:185px; margin-left:15px; padding:10px; border:1px solid #8b4513; float:left; } .nav-left image { border:0px; } .nav-left ul { list-style-type:none; padding:0px; margin:0px; } .nav-left li { color:#aa4400; margin-bottom:4px; } After a few days of research, I thought bottom-border: url(/siteimages/texashr.gif); would be the key, but no matter where I put it in the above coding, it doesn't work. It would be nice to have a lot less <li></li> entries in the body html. If this is possible, what the heck am I missing? Any guidance is greatly appreciated! I don't mind reading and learning, but apparently I haven't found the right tutorial to read! Have a great evening, and God bless!
  10. I knew it had to be something simple...why didn't I think of that? Thanks Ben!
  11. Yuppers! Here's the change: list-style-image:url (http://www.renttexashillcountry.com/siteimages/smalltxflagnav.jpg'>http://www.renttexashillcountry.com/siteimages/smalltxflagnav.jpg); Now three errors: Value Error : list-style-image url is not a list-style-image value : url Parse Error (http://www.renttexashillcountry.com/siteimages/smalltxflagnav.jpg); Parse Error [:#000000; vertical-align:middle; text-align:left; } /*--content--*/ #propdetails] Have no idea why this one appears with the above change! Any ideas?
  12. Hey, Ben! I had that originally, but it gave me 3 errors...I'll try it again and see what happens.
  13. Thanks to this forum, I'm getting better at utilizing css...or at least think I am! I redid some of it, then tried validating, and I keep getting this on validation: Value Error : list-style-image Parse Error :(http://www.renttexashillcountry.com/siteimages/smalltxflagnav.jpg'>http://www.renttexashillcountry.com/siteimages/smalltxflagnav.jpg) I know this is something simple, but I just can't figure it out. It's the only error on validation, so I'm happy with that - but sure would like to know how this line in my css is incorrect: list-style-image:(http://www.renttexashillcountry.com/siteimages/smalltxflagnav.jpg); As usual, your help is greatly appreciated - especially by us novices! Have a great day, and God bless!
  14. I'm driving myself crazy trying to figure out how to set css for a specialized list using an image and indentation. The html mess I have can be seen here: www.renttexashillcountry.com/texasisms/ I have the following in my css, and it's working fine for a couple of lists (although I'm still trying to fine-tune the css). ul { list-style-type:none; padding:0px; margin:0px;} ul li { color:#aa4400;} There must be some way to set code into the css that will give me the same results as what the page shows for the Texasisms list. I've tried using an html nested list, but it simply refers to the css above and is defeated. How can I use css to accomplish this and get rid of all the mess I have going on - and still get the proper indentations? Or should I set up a table - I have several of those being used in the site. Any guidance would sure be appreciated! Cowboy
  15. driving myself crazy working on how to porperly use css with varying lists!
