CSS positioning question


Recommended Posts

I don't know the correct term, but here I go.......

 

How do I position selected text to go in a desired position as in the image below:

The image attached is the exact image I will be using, but I want to swap the Text Here text with selectable text of my own using CSS.

 

I will appreciate any assistance.

I would use a div to contain it and apply the dark gray background to the div. So, something like this:

 

#somenamethatmakessense {

width:

height:

margin:

padding:

}

 

Does that help? If you need more information, just holler. Do you have any of this coded yet so we can see what you have so far?

I've changed the html for that area like this:

 

<div class="main_text"><img border="0">
<h2>TEXT HERE TEXT HERE TEXT HERE</h2>
<p>Main text, main text, main text
Main text, main text, main text
Main text, main text, main text
Main text, main text, main text
Main text, main text, main text
Main text, main text, main text
Main text, main text, main text</p>
</div>

I removed the <br>s - they are line breaks and not meant to be used to create space. For your text here line, I picked the h2 tag, but you can use whatever - and here is the CSS for it:

.main_text p {
margin-top: 100px;
}
.main_text h2 {
font-size: 80%;
background: #333333;
color: #fefefe;
margin-left: 150px;
margin-top: 40px;
padding: 10px;	
}
