    Incorrect link colors in IE

    Another one of these. Yes, I know, apologies. I couldn't find anything specifically related to my problem so I'm starting a new thread.

    My knowledge of CSS and HTML and so on is pretty basic and I cannot figure out how to fix this:

    Some links on my site (all on the galleries page) as well as the "contact me" mailto: link are not displaying properly. Everything works and looks great (imo) in Firefox, but IE screws it all up. Other links look good both in IE and Firefox (galleries link on main page, masthead link, about me link).

    My site is: myweb.dal.ca/randrono
    Firefox version: 1.5.0.4
    IE: 7.0.5346.5 (IE7, Beta2)
    Coding in Dreamweaver 8 on XP Home.


    Thanks for any help and info!

    Hmm ... I just copy and pasted from here into my browser and it works fine. Tested on another computer at home and also no problems (that one hasn't been to my site before.)

    This works for me: http://myweb.dal.ca/randrono/

    Should drop frames. They are frustrating to work with and edit (especially if you want others to help you)

    But in any case, I am assuming you are referring to the blue borders around your pictures which you can usually remove by them including the CSS code

    Code:
    img 
    { border: 0
    }
    Let me know how it goes.

    That seems to have worked. Thanks very much!

    PS. What can I use instead of frames to achieve the same effect?

    Well the way I see your website's main page, it's just 4 straight boxes.

    Top
    Big Cactus Picture
    Links
    Bottom

    I don't see why you need to use frames for it. You can use the CSS. Make each box a div element.

    So your layout could look like

    [CODE]
    <div id='top'>STUFF</div>
    <div id='picture'>Picture of something</div>
    <div id='links'>links</div>
    <div id='bottom'>bottom</div>
    </CODE]

    Bam, super clean code. And people who help you can easily just right click and view source as opposed to struggling to find the frames and then connecting them.

    I think I see what you're getting at. I'll give it a shot.

    Thanks again.
