Borders Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm doing a redesign of my website, gale2006.com. For some strange reason I'm having a terrible time getting the borders to work how I want them to.

 

The new website design will be www.gale2006.com/new2.htm When pulling up the site in Internet Explorer, it works great... exactly how I want it to. But when I pull it up in Mozilla Firefox, the borders are back and the links are underlined. Any ideas how I can fix these problems? While you're at it... any thoughts about the basic new design?

 

Thanks! You all are always so helpful.

 

Eric

Might want to run your page through a validation page. Also, look into CSS...makes changes a LOT easier.

bodercolor is not an HTML or XHTML standard. It is an Internet Explorer standard.

 

Check out w3schools HTML Dom Table Objects

 

You can control the underline in the links using CSS.

 

>a { text-decoration: none; }

Hmm... well I really know nothing about CSS. I know only a limited amount about HTML. Can anyone explain where I would need to change the code?

 

Thank you

Run it through the validation page and it will give you the line numbers of the error and what's wrong. FWIW...you'll have an easier time getting your site to show properly in most browsers if you try to adhere as much as possible to HTML or XHTML standards. As has been brought up numerous times before in other threads, IE doesn't stick to established standards.

For overall style issues like this, it really is worth getting a basic understanding of CSS. You could put it on every tag without any knowledge but learning just a tiny bit will make it so much easier - you can tell it to do every link, for instance, with one line.

Nebraska huh? Used to live in Omaha (until about 7 months ago). At any rate, a validator would be key. It'll tell you everything that's wrong and why.

I suggest using CSS to control how a page looks, it makes it a lot easier to deal with the different browsers

 

Any problems, just give us a shout!
