  1. I'm sorry but I'm obviously not understanding your suggestion. Can you give me an example of the coding you're describing? So far all I've managed to do is make the image AND caption invisible <sigh>. Thanks! Colette
  2. I tried enclosing them in <p> tags the the W3 validator told me I was full of it :-) But perhaps I wasn't doing it properly. I'll try again and see if I can figure out another way to do it. We'll see! Thank you! Colette
  3. I'm basically working with a two-column page with a header and footer, navigation on the right. My CSS calls for a border on the right side of the "contents" (which basically divides the "contents" and the right-side "menu". It also calls for a border on the bottom of the "contents" area. Within the "contents" area I'd like to align an image to the left with a short caption to the right. Below that image, I'd like to align another image to the right with a short caption to the left......and continue thusly for a number of images. My problem is floating the image and keeping the capt
  4. Thanks, gentlemen! I appreciate your help. Colette
  5. Okay, I understand part of this. I'll work on understanding the rest of it before I simply pester you all to early deaths. One more question though now, if I may. I managed to see that .htaccess is blank, as is .htaccess1162143719. But .htaccess1662143704 has a string that apparently refers only to Front Page: "# -FrontPage-IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??*........." Since I'm not using Front Page, do I care? Shall is simply create a new .htaccess page and delete these other three? Or create a new .htaccess page and include the Front Page instructions? Thanks again, Colette
  6. I don't mean to be dense. I have three .htaccess files in the public_html folder, two that apparently have no size whatsoever. I don't know how to open them or what they might say. I can create an html 404.htm page okay. I don't understand what you mean though by "in the file is a site map...". Nor do I understand what to do with the .htaccess file. Sorry! I suppose if this is too complicated I can just ignore the errors :-) Colette
  7. Thanks! Can I push my luck by asking how I create a custom 404 error page? I know I need to go to the "Error Pages" in Cpanel and then down to 404. Then what? "Requested URL" gives me the following: <!--#echo var="REQUEST_URI"-->. What should I add in there? Or am I on the wrong track? Thanks again, Colette
  8. My Error Log is showing consistently the same errors: /home/****/public_html/404.shtml /home/****/public_html/favicon.ico I have no clue what this means. I've checked my CSS and HTML for any reference to "favicon" and can find none. Any ideas? Thanks! Colette
  9. Normally I'd agree with you but I only loaded up the page for you to see. I spent a LONG time blasting that sidebar all over creation before finally giving it the same ID. What I probably did was hit upon the right combination yet fail to properly close a tag - or some other equally brilliant move :-) Thanks a bunch for your time! Colette
  10. I'm not certain what exactly changed (since I've been dinking with this for three days <sigh>), but changing to <ul-class="mainnav"> in the html and changing #ul.mainnav to #sidebar ul.mainnav in the css gives me two separate lists in the navigation bar that both are working properly. And the html validates! So I'm going to quite whilst I am ahead. (They really ought to keep people like me off the internet :-) Thank you for your patience! I really appreciate it. Colette
  11. Fair enough :-) It isn't finished but here you are: http://www.parrotletsplus.com/ I appreciate you all taking a look at it. I think I've bitten off more than I can chew. The very bottom box "Site Info" seems to change back and forth as well, undoubtedly an I.E. "thing" that I haven't figured out yet. Thanks! Colette
  12. In the html, I changed "ID=" to "div class=" In the css, I changed: #sidebar { #ul#mainnav { TO .mainnav { or #sidebar .ul .mainnav { or #sidebar ul .mainnav { or #sidebar .ul mainnav { or #sidebar ul mainnav { #ul mainnav { or ul.mainnav { or #ul.mainnav The closest anything got to working was ul.mainnav { which at least produced the background color - though nothing else I can't seem to get anything to work. Thanks! Colette
  13. I guess I'm not very smart <sigh> When I change the ID to "class", the first section of the navigation menu behaves properly but not the second section. As it is now, with "id=", the css reads: #sidebar h3 { font-size: 150%; font-weight: bold; display: block; text-align:center; margin: 0; padding: 0.2em 0 0.2em 10px; } ul#mainnav { list-style: none; margin: 0 0 10px 0; padding: 0; background-color: #0561A5; color: white; } If I change BOTH "id=" to "div class=", how will the CSS read? Seems like I've tried every possible combination - but
  14. I'm having a LOT of trouble coding the navigation section of a page. I want one navigation menu, a break, and then a second navigation menu. If I give them the same ID, the page looks as it should - but the html validator tells me I can't do that. I can't seem to figure out how to properly do this as either separate ID's or by putting them in a class. The first menu always looks as it should but the second menu always loses the format. The HTML follows if anybody can help. Thanks, Colette <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR
  15. Thanks very much, folks. That's pretty much what I expected. They weren't claiming that my domain was about to expire but they seemed a little "off" on what they were and weren't telling me. Their site "looks" legitimate enough but so do the fake E-Bay sites. I appreciate your time. Colette
  16. I just received a call from someone allegedly from Domain Registry Support who wanted to verify my domain name and contact information. I explained that I hadn't a clue who he was and he seemed a little miffed. He finally said he wanted to notify me of some changes in domain name rules that would affect me. Does anyone know if "http://www.comainregistrysupport.com" is a legitimate authority that I should be giving information to? ARE there changes to the domains in general that will affect me? Pardon me if I'm posting to the wrong forum. Thanks, Colette
  17. Here's the site: http://www.commandobirdies.net According to the validators, none of the images exist! Thanks, Colette
  18. I've run my site through a couple of different html validators and come up with the inescapable fact that I have a bunch of links which are coming back as "forbidden" (Code 403). One validator tells me that the usual suspects are: a missing index.html or Overview.html, or a missing ACL. I haven't a clue what this means or what I should do about it. I can see my web site and so can others. It all appears to "be there". But according to the validators, the images are not there because they're "forbidden" (Code 403). (The "links" the validators refer to are "links" to the images.) I
  19. Thanks! I'll give it a try. If I have trouble I may be back (See what happens when you let just anybody play on the internet?) Colette
  20. Um.....no :-) I was under the impression it HAD to be named "index.html". Can you tell me how to title it and still follow the "index" rule? Thanks! Colette
  21. Why is it, when I do a search for my site through one of the search engines (Yahoo, Google, etc.), the results are shown as "Index.html" instead of the name of my site? How can I change this to show the site name? Apparently everybody else on the internet has figured this out. (I guess I'm "slow") Thanks! Colette
