So I am really struggling with a redesign. I create the redesign using tables ( http://www.arts.uci.edu/artsbridge/n...dex.php?page=6 ) until it was quite clear that the tables were giving me more trouble than they were worth.
So I have been learning CSS in a few days here. I have created a new CSS based site at http://www.arts.uci.edu/artsbridge/n...ex4.php?page=6 and everything is great with the exception of one item: the grey bar between the menu and content is missing. I have tried everything I can think of to get it there, but if it ever does end up in the right place, it screws up the content.
So I have tried floating and fixing an image of the bar. Floating for some reason always pushes the content lower, and when fixing the image the "left" command is ignored, or the bar just disappears. It would be nice to just give the page content a left border, but the margin or padding (I have tried both) places the line on the far left where the margin/padding starts, and floating it to the right is not an option as it screws up the menu.
Is there any way to fix this nightmare? Does CSS has a way to just dray an arbitrary line somewhere on your page?
Thanks in advance!
