    Crazy Line Appears Over Nav Buttons

    In 1024x768 a line appears on two pages on my site: 'Work' and 'Price'. The line is above the buttons. Also, I was having trouble with the buttons 'migrating', moving up and down on their own. I think the problem might have to do with relative positioning- I used negative numbers. Thanks

    http://www.pagemfg.com Please click on 'Work' or 'Price' Button.

    I can;t pick out one particular thing that might be causing the problem, but I see quite a few things that WILL cause problems in the future.

    1) In your CSS for the TABLE, you say:

    style="position: relative; top: 10;">

    but you don't declare a unit of measurement for the top positioning. It should be:

    top: px;

    or some other unit.

    2) In many locations, your file names have spaces (and other character) in them:

    -= Market PageMFG.html
    -= PageMFG wide banner, cut.gif
    -= Too Much.gif

    While most browsers will be able to render them properly, some browsers, and even some servers, won't. I would recommend using the following conventions for naming your files (images, pages etc...)

    a) all lower case - *nix servers are case sensitive.
    b) Don't use commas, spaces, &, or any other characters. Keep it to alphanumeric.
    c) Make them short, but descriptive. Settle on some sort of pattern that you can use for all of your clients. For example, when I create multiple images that are the same type, I use the type as the first part of the name:

    hdr_aboutus.jpg
    hdr_contact.jpg

    nav_portfolio_on.gif
    nav_portfolio_off.gif
    nav_services_on.gif
    nav_services_off.gif

    etc...

    good luck on finding the problem with the line.

    Validation is your friend. You have some problems with your tables.

    Thanks All,

    This was the offensive tag: height="70" !!


    I guess the height should have been more than 70? Anyway, I ripped the tag out completely.




    creole, is this: _ ok in file names?

    I'm not creole, but yes, underscores are completely legal in filenames.

    yes, _ is a valid character in a file name. Use it in place of spaces to keep readbility in your file names.
