I've included the image as well as the HTML and CSS. The top of the screen (masthead) is giving me a problem. May be becuase of the image. Can someone give me a hand? Thank you very much!

Ok i dont know about the html but i do know that you should crop the pictures on the side they are not completely touching and are smushed.

Ok i dont know about the html but i do know that you should crop the pictures on the side they are not completely touching and are smushed.

There's only one image in my example at the very top of the page? :confused:

Sorry i didnt clarify what pics, i was talking about the ones on the two pages robert and daniel, They are over on the side. Sorry i couldn't be more of a help to your original problem.

No problem buddy. I should have been alittle more specific as well. You looked at my existing website. I am redoing my website and of course it's not online yet. The revised opening page is what my question entails.

Please follow the HTML and CSS code from the original post.

Sorry, html and css files are not valid extension types to attach to threads here.

Thanks!

Here's the CSS the HTML is attached as a txt document


A:link {color:blue;}
A:visited {color:black;}
A:active {color:red;}
A:hover {color:green;}
.navbar {position:absolute;top:10px;left:10px;}
BODY {background-image: url("Images/Sideline.gif"); background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: 0% 0%; font-family:verdana;}
#masthead {background-color: #008000; height: 100px;}

I think you are missing a file because in the html it says that there is another css file called bobbyragsnew or something.

OK, here's the URL in question

http://members.fortunecity.com/bobbyrags2003/

And, here's the CSS

A:link {color:blue;}
A:visited {color:black;}
A:active {color:red;}
A:hover {color:green;}
.navbar {position:absolute;top:10px;left:10px;}
BODY {background-image: url("Images/Sideline.gif"); background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: 0% 0%; font-family:verdana;}
#masthead {background-color: #008000; height: 100px;}
#content {position:absolute;top:0px;left:175px;right:350px;
}
UL LI {list-style-type: disc; margin-left: 100px;}

Your style sheet is being addressed on your c drive...

<LINK REL=stylesheet HREF="C:\BobbyRags(New)\BobbyRagsNew.CSS" TYPE="text/css">

Not having access to the contents of your harddrive I will have considerable difficulty reading it...

Upload it into the same folder and try:

<LINK REL=stylesheet HREF="BobbyRagsNew.CSS" TYPE="text/css">

You may wish to have it all in lower case.

OK, I got the "content" to begin below the "masthead". The "masthead" doesn't reach the "top" of the screen.

http://members.fortunecity.com/bobbyrags2003/

A:link {color:blue;}
A:visited {color:black;}
A:active {color:red;}
A:hover {color:green;}
.navbar {position:absolute;top:10px;left:10px;}
BODY {background-image: url("Images/Sideline.gif"); background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: 0% 0%; font-family:verdana;}
#masthead {background-color: #008000; height: 100px; top;0px;}
#content {position:absolute;top:125px;left:175px;right:350px;}
UL LI {list-style-type: disc; margin-left: 100px;}

It has to be one of these two lines that needs a litlle tweak. :D


BODY {background-image: url("Images/Sideline.gif"); background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: 0% 0%; font-family:verdana;}

#masthead {background-color: #008000; height: 100px; top;0px;}

I have masthead at top 0px but it's not quite at the top of the screen.

add
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
to your body declaration (yes it was that line!)

hence:
BODY {background-image: url("Images/Sideline.gif"); background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: 0% 0%; font-family:verdana; margin: 0; padding: 0;}

add
margin: 0;
padding: 0;
to your body declaration (yes it was that line!)

hence:
BODY {background-image: url("Images/Sideline.gif"); background-repeat: repeat-y; background-position: 0% 0%; font-family:verdana; margin: 0; padding: 0;}

It worked! Thank you so very much! I appreciate it! :)

I was going to start pulling my hair out. :mrgreen:

I see quite a few errors which can confuse browsers:

1. You have capitalized tags which are closed with lowercase tags. This causes rendering problems with some browsers.

2. All tags must now be lowercase if CSS is used. An uppercase style selector won't select the same tag in lowercase, and vice versa.

3. Your script must be in the head portion of the page.

4. You can't have special symbols (such as the copyright symbol) in your source code. Instead, you must use the symbol code shown here for copyright.

&copy;

5. I don't understand your percentages in the body style. Percent of what??? Body is the outermost container.

Setting a percentage for the body is a hack to try and scale the body to the window... Unfortunately, it doesn't work very well =P

HTML 4 or less doesn't care about tag case; those rules ONLY apply to XML and thus XHTML. Still; it's perhaps best to make tags lowercase incase XHTML is a future possibility.

http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/HtmlVsXhtml

HTML 4.0 doesn't care.

HTML 4.01 strict does care.

And style sheets do care. They have always been case sensitive except in IE. I have seen a style not applied to a tag because the tag was uppercase and the style selector was lowercase.
