See, my brain just needed a tiny rest.
I re-read what you said about adding height and width to empty div.
Now I know why my top and bottom disappeared earlier when I tried it - I didn't put in those dimensions.
Now, it is seamless!
Thanks so much! Love learning new little tidbits ... now if only I can remember them for next time.
Oh! I also learned a bit about how to do RSS feeds. I copied another site on how they did it.
