  1. Ok guys, site overhauled based on a lot of good critiques. Give it another whirl and let me know what you think. http://bayarearcsociety.com/tutorial/css_tutorial1.php
  2. 1. I did already. 2. Thank you, I won't.
  3. I understand what you are saying but then I am lost. This is my CSS: .thumbnail { float: left; margin:5px; text-align: center; background:#0055BB; padding:3px; border:1px solid #fff; margin:0px; color:#fff; width:170px; min-height: 210px; } and you say that for IE6 I need to add: #thumbnail{ display:inline; /* because this element is floated */ } But then is seems I have defined the same ID twice. And how and where and what in the HTML do I put this? <!--[if IE 6]> Special instructions for IE 6 here <![endif]--> The special instructions ought to be : Get a decent browser...
  4. Gotcha! Never would have had any idea what min-height was used for. By the way, want to apologize for using your picture in the Photo Album ( 3rd from left ). It was a mistake and I will remove it immediately.... Got to view my main site using IE6 at a hobby store yesterday. It is a total mess. Asked the owner why he didn't upgrade and he said he never used it except to look up parts. But I could care less. If you're so dumb you are still running IE6 you don't need to be looking at my site anyway. By the way, I removed the section on Wamp. Concluded that it had no business in a tutorial for absolute CSS beginners.
  5. I made them all the same height with my photo editor so do I still need to do that?
  6. quickoldcar To be honest I included the mention of Wamp because my mentor has been urging me to install it. But since I have only the one site I do not want to go to the trouble. And being the tutorial is aimed at a CSS beginner, I have been thinking of removing the mention of Wamp server from the tutorial. What do you think? I will vote for that. Thanks for taking the time.
  7. Good idea, will do. But since when I call in a prescription and she says "Please enter your prescription number and when you finish, press the pound key" I will call it the pound sign."..
  8. think you will find thats called a hash still reading....... It's called many things. A Google search will produce, among others: An id selector is defined in CSS using the "#" sign /* All id selectors are defined with a pound symbol (#) before their name */ In the CSS, a class selector is a name preceded by a full stop (.) and an ID selector is a name preceded by a hash character (#). The id selector is then defined with a hash- or pound-sign (#) before the id name. ID is specified by including a number sign (#) before the selector name. Number sign is a name for the symbol #, which is used for a variety of purposes including, in some countries, the designation of a number (for example, "#1" stands for "number one"). The symbol is in Unicode as code point U+0023 #​ number sign (35decimal); it is also present in ASCII with the same value. In the United States, the symbol is usually called the pound sign, and the key bearing this symbol on touch-tone phones is called the pound key. In Canada, this key is most frequently called the number sign key. In most English-speaking countries outside North America, the symbol is usually called the hash, and the corresponding telephone key is the hash key. Beginning in the 1960s, telephone engineers have attempted to coin a special name for this symbol, with variant spellings including octothorp, octothorpe, octathorp, and octatherp.[1] None has become universal or widely accepted. In non-English speaking nations, other names for this symbol are also used.
  9. Many thanks... I had such a hell of a time learning CSS ( and I am still far from an expert ) that I thought there had to be a better way. So I tried to put something together for the beginner who is probably only going to do one site. It definitely is not intended for the advanced programmer. A lot of the format and content was derived from reading the questions on the CSS forum.
  10. Well it's finally finished and ready for critique. For those of you that don't know my history and that look at this tutorial, my story is recapped on the first page. I made this tutorial for beginners with no experience with CSS, as I was when I started. I hope it turns out to be a useful document. I would appreciate any and all suggestions and critiques. http://bayarearcsociety.com/tutorial/css_tutorial1.php
