Smile Success....sort of

Hi Clare - having coffee with friends and talking about anything BUT programming does wonders for the old gray matter.

I was able to get the background in the right place on NN6.1 and it works on all the later Mac browsers that I tried too. The background image doesn't show up on NN4.7, but like Jeannie says, who uses it anyway

I changed what I told you about before.

In the file "global.css" I took the background image lines out of the table element and created a new class called ".mybody" - I could have just called it "body" and not had to refer to the class in the <body> tag, but I want to get in the habit of naming classes. (my old programming neurons)

I also too the background color out of the table and put it in the body element. The default background in older browsers is a horrible gray so even though the background image doesn't load in the old browser, what does load looks nice.

In the index.html file, I added "class='mybody'" in the <body> tag.

global.css
table {
font-family: 'Trebuchet MS';
font-size: 12px;
height: 100%;
width: 100%;
color: #000000;
}
h5 {
font-size: 14px;
}

.mybody {
background-image: url(../images/back.jpg);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-color: #ffffff;
}

index.html
.
.
.
<body class="mybody" link="#000000" etc.
.
.
.
Hope this helps Margaret

Brilliant fix Margaret. By removing the association of the background image from the table, you've gotten around the awful Netscape rendering of tables altogether!

Jeanie I know what you are going through. I spent a lot of time on my gallery design to learn that the Frontpage link bar doesn't support frames. Now I have located a javascript menu bar that I want to use to find out that it doesn't want to let me use the colors I want and it also wants to place itself behind my page header images. I will have to spend a lot more time on this gallery project than originally anticipated. It seems like every direction I turn only leads to another roadblock. Just think how good it will feel when it quits hurting!

You all are making good progress. Hang in there guys we will get through this.

I have coffee with a group of ladies who range in age from 80 to 98 and they are the funniest, brightest people - even the one who has Alzheimers!

We talk about current events, kids, romance, recipes, investments and everything in between - it's a hoot.

I live in an apartment building that has a lot of retired folks living in it. Most of them have lived here since the building was new 30+ years ago and they thrive on getting together to talk.

I don't know what's in the coffee, but it sure does me good!!

Margaret

Margaret,
Sounds like the coffee is made with a mixture of friendship and feel good beans

I have just put the web site up again, The only thing I changed was adding a line into the css class

background-position: 10px 5px;

this just helped to align the background with the buttons and Home - About Us - etc lines at the bottom of the page. This seems to work really well, thank you for helping me

Clare

Talking Spelling error

Your site looks great on all my browsers but there is a spelling error in your CSS:

Quote:
.mybody {
background-image: url(../images/back.jpg);
background-repeat: no-repeat;
background-colour: #ffffff;
background-position: 10px 5px;
}

Also, this line in your HTML causes a row of dots to appear on some browsers. I don't know if you intended that to happen:

Quote:
<font color="#FFFFFF">..........</font><font color="#999999">&copy;Clare
Sadler, Image Pure 2003</font></p></td>
Good job!!

Margaret

Talking

Colour..... that serves me right for not copy and pasting

I also get a row of ......... before the (C) symbol on some browsers, it was ment to move the (C) along so it looked in line with the background - and never used to show up. I might try moving the background up or down a pixel to see if I can eliminate it.

Thanks for pointing out the colour spelling, I probably wouldn't have picked that one up, isn't the english language fun! (that was the only spelling error wasn't it?????)

I've given up on the "British" spelling of words - spell checkers were making me crazy

I didn't notice any other spelling errors, and I only noticed that one because I've made the same mistake so many times in the past.

Have a good day, Margaret

More spelling corrections, (paranoid) quite a few that the grammar and spell check missed but did not get past my sister I agree with you Margaret spell checkers are a pain, I have one set to British and one to International, together they really confuse me.
