    Cant Select Text on Webpage?

    I've got a problem with selecting text on a webpage. It comes in a big chunck or nothing at all.

    The page is http://www.fancc.org.

    Can anybody help?

    Here's the sloppy CSS:
    Code:
    a { 
    	color:#666; 
    	font-size:12px; 
    	text-decoration:none; 
    	font-family: Tahoma, Arial, Verdana; 
    	font-weight: bold; } 
    
    a:link { color:#009;} 
    a:visited { color:#009; text-decoration: underline;} 
    a:hover { text-decoration: none; background-color: #ffc;	} 
    
    a.header:link { color: #009;  font-size:16px; margin-right: 5px; }
    a.header:hover { text-decoration: none; background-color: #ffc; font-size:16px}
    a.header:visited { color: #009; font-size:16px;text-decoration: none;}
    a.header:active {  color: #009; font-size:16px; }
    
    body { 
    	PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; 
    	PADDING-LEFT: 0px; 
    	PADDING-BOTTOM: 0px; 
    	MARGIN: 0px; WIDTH: 100%; 
    	BORDER-TOP-STYLE: none; 
    	PADDING-TOP: 0px; 
    	BORDER-RIGHT-STYLE: none; 
    	BORDER-LEFT-STYLE: none; 
    	POSITION: relative; 
    	BORDER-BOTTOM-STYLE: none; 
    	min-width: 600px;
    	background-image: url(/img/bg4.jpg);
    	background-color: #ffffcc;
    	font:13px Tahoma, Arial, Verdana; 
    }
    
    
    hr { color: #000; margin: 0px auto; height: 1px; width: 400px; }
    
    h2{ font: 16px Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; color:#994d00;  margin: 5px auto; }

    Could you specify a little more what the problem is? I took a look at the page and I am able to select, copy, and paste with no problem. I am using IE5.5/Win.

    I just don't see anything that I perceive as a problem. What browser are you using?

    selecting text has nothing to do with css, what browser are you using?

    It's not who I am underneath, but what I do that defines me.
