    text fields and buttons

    Hello!

    On my homepage (www.myalgebrabook.com), my login textfields looks good in Safari but the lengths are different in IE and in both IE and Firefox things look a bit mushed together. Could someone offer me some guidance as to how to add some space? A one-solution fits all browser would of course be preferred if at all possible.

    Thank you,

    Eric

    You don't really have any styles for your form, so you could try something like:

    Code:
    #login input[type="text"], #login input[type="password"] {
         padding: 2px;
         width: 100px;
    }
    
    #login input {
         margin-bottom: 2px;
    }
    Probably needs more work, but that's a start.

    Hey, thanks for the "place to start" response --- I definitely prefer a tip, and a bit of personal head banging before discovering the solution, as it's the only way that I really "own" new information.

    Happy Wednesday!

    No worries. It's just a start, but if you are happy to work with it yourself, it will get you going. You may need to style the labels a bit too.

    Thanks! I'll give it a shot. And, sorry for my "America-centric" time zone comment!
