OK... I've been got by CSS... I revoke my dislike for it!
I think it has potential and could be used constructively!
I hate CSS!
I sat up till 5:30 odd this moring... simply trying to make a header with 3 images, a left end, center and right end.... so that ould put Hdr text infront of the center object etc.... seemed simple enough!
SO I think.... bkgrnd imgs.....inline....easy!
Yepp.... got the 3px bug!
Beat it in 2 mins.... obvious.... felt good!
I set the center to %
I now have a bar with a lft end, rght end and a stretching center!
Not in NN6 I dont... only in IE6!!!!!!!
For some reason, have a % image in NN6 causes it to flicker!
Only find stuff about IE flicker... nothing on NN6.
So, I think rather than using divs, I'll try this span.... now I have nothing in NN6! IE is no different!
So I go back to div!
I turnb the center from % to px.
No flicker, (no shift either.. but hey!)
So, I put some txt in the center div to start the hdr text formatting....
my entire design just stuffed it!
The center image is now nolonger horizontally level with the ends! It's pushed downwards!
I've paddd the div... tried inserting another div within it... no difference! The txt stuffed it royally!
SO, from simple DIV for each to span for each within a hder div.... to no %, to no TXT as well!
CSS is not simple... nor fun! Still think it has potential, otherwise I wouldn't have sat there for hours trying!
So, the point of this thread.... can people provide or point to tutorials that actuially display code and examples of the results in real time for this sort of thing.... I can only find stuff for bugs (apart from the NN6 flicker! LOL)... nothing about inline images, creating flexible hdrs etc that use 3 images....
I think I will build a library of code... lots of little examples, with comments... then publish them as I go!
Atlest that way I KNOW what I've done, and maybe it wi;ll help others too!
