  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
  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 you
  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
  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:18
  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.renttexashillc
  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 simpl
  15. driving myself crazy working on how to porperly use css with varying lists!

  16. Ben! Thank you very much! I kept trying to work from the left of the text - never thought about working to the right of the image! Probably need to get some sleep. That corrected the problem.....muchas gracias! Cowboy
  17. I set up a table for one of my pages, and have tried everything I know to put some space between the <td>image and the <td>text. Here's the page: www.renttexashillcountry.com/usefullinks/index.html Still working on "shortcutting" design using css, and having some problems. Any hints as to what the heck I'm missing here? Here's the css I have for this table: #statelinks { margin-left:5px; width:100%; border-collapse:collapse; text-align:left; } #statelinks td { border:0px; margin-top:15px; padding:15px; } Thanks in advance for
  18. Good morning! I'm still wading through higher-level html, and starting css - plan on starting to learn php this Spring. I have a new site, and it has two submission forms. The forms are apparently working fine - I'm getting numerous email submissions that are from robots - or is it spiders? Anyway, I need to make the forms suitable for humans only. I've been looking at the way to do that, and am a little confused as to where to put the code for it - in the form itself somewhere? That's the way it appears to me, but I don't want to change things until I'm sure of what I'm doing. Th
  19. Good morning, everyone! Thanks to hints from Andrea, and after several days of reading tutorials and forum posts, I finally got my css validated, and things look the way I want them to...yay! I'm sure there will be changes as I tweak the template some more, but it feels good to have come this far in a very short period of time. I'm having trouble, though, getting html validation. I've been able to go from 100+ errors to 47. 24 of those pertain to me putting <hr> into my navigation column - I like the looks of it over just the plain <ul> appearance. Is there a way to ma
  20. Dang it, virtual! I got that wrong, too? Andrea's going to fire me as one of her students if I don't catch on soon.... Almost through fixing the errors on mine...yay! Have a great day, and God bless! Cowboy
  21. Hey, Karen! I just opened it using your link, and that page, as well as the others, looks great! It's all perfectly aligned as 4 columns, with the "For Sale" and "For Rent" centered. This is a wide-screen monitor at work - could that make a difference (still learning a lot of this)? Not much help, I guess, but at least you know it's working somewhere! Have a great afternoon, and God bless! Cowboy
  22. Hey, Andrea! Wow! You make students get right into brass tacks and figure things out! I've been spending most of the day gittin' me some learnin'! rthc.css testindex.html
  23. Well, I'm getting a handle on css, I think, but I can't seem to get a 3-column page working properly. The problem can be seen on my test page here: www.renttexashillcountry.com/3columntest/testindex.html. The nav column intended for the right side is all the way on the bottom right. I've attached the css - following the information in here, I just can't seem to get the dang thing right. The changes/additions I made to the css for this are "nav-right" and "info-column2". I know it's something simple - can anyone give me a hint? Thanks! Cowboy rthc.css
  24. Just started learning css, and have been floundering through numerous sites, all of which have been helpful, but not user-friendly for a novice. Now I have this as well....thank you, thank you! I finally figured out how to set up an external stylesheet and how to get the site to link to it, and am working diligently on getting my site - which has had some problems with plain html/internal stylesheet - organized and looking good - as well as cutting down on time due to changing a lot of pages! Should have the site back up this week - going through posts to fine-tune things. Thanks so
