2974Making a "Box" Using a Style Sheet (CSS)
- Jul 30, 2002Hi All,
I need to make some boxes around some text and want it to always
fit correctly for a lack of better terms. The boxes are used for
links with names, always in the same place, but the link
descriptions will change size. I want it to do like <td> and
have a few pixels spacing between the text and border. This is
what I have, but it is not what I want. I understand why it is
doing what it is as far as the box size goes. (I think I will
be all set after this - I hope.)
A small part of my funnies.css:
<p class="r"><a href="../html/f99.htm">Air Farce, Yep, it's Spelled Right</a> <a href="../html/f101.htm">Air Force One</a></p>
<p class="r"><a href="#top">Top of Page</a></p>
Oh, also, I would like to have a vertical line the same size as
the border in between the links. Do I use a 1x1 image and is
there a way to repeat it inside the box, or what? :)
Would it be best to use .r and then <span class="r">, <div>, or
something else than the way I have it now? (Geesh, thank God for
RegExp, else I would have quit this a long time ago. ;)
Say, what does "float" mean?
I do not use any headers and footers in the .css file, correct,
or can it be used, is it acceptable both ways? CSE Validator 5.00
thinks </body> is CSS code, or it did the way I had it.
Thanks again guys and gals!
