    Review - Taking Your Talent to the Web

    Hi, I bought and read the book - was very helpful to me. I have already put alot of the suggestions to work on my site - for example using CSS. But I am having a problem. The book suggests using PX (Pixels) as the font-size that will work in all browsers (Chapter 10 is entitled "Style sheets for Designers". ). The problem is it doesn't work in Netscape....

    Hold it - I take that back. I went back to the text as I was writing this and found my problem - I had the following in my style sheet:

    TD.maintxt {color: #000099;
    font-size: 18 PX;
    font-family: Verdana, Arial;
    text-align: right;

    The text showed that px should be entered as:

    font-size: 18px;

    Apparently Netscape (7.0) don't like 18 PX; it wants 18px; (or 18PX.

    So I guess my question is this - after all these releases (7.0), why can't Netscape be more forgiving to us poor ole over-extended web designers - eh? I am no fan or Microsoft, but their browser is still tops - because they take into consideration the plight of the web developer.

    Yeah well there are rules and they should be followed.
    An application with bad/missing code also won't do what you want.

    I remember that I made a similar mistake when I started with CSS. I only forgot to put px behind the textsizes:

    font-size: 10;

    that's the way I did it , worked perfect in Explorer , not in Netscape
