    Yes, I will do that. I have a deadline for this project and I can't waste more time with 2 damn pixels

    I will bother you now with just one more question:

    Do you have any other advice related to the code or design? As I'm just in the beggining, will be nice to hear some professional opinions about the overall code.

    Thank you very very much for all the support so far!

    Your target audience includes people 40 years and older.
    You might want to consider a larger font and/or a way to
    make the site more accessible for visually impaired.

    Using the white text on bright purple ... maybe make the
    purple darker for better contrast.

    If people can't see the content, they will just click out and
    go somewhere else.

    But the actual layout and positioning of content looks good.

    Oh my!

    http://www-dev-en.njl.ee/

    My eyes thank you. That is so much easier to read.

    I noticed an image link with the "link border" around it (online booking).

    Also the "breadcrumb" colors and the text at the top of that content area.


    But so much better!

    Hi!!

    I'm glad that you like it.

    Well, I fixed the borders around the "online booking", the breadcrumb colors I will fix later. But now I still have another positioning problem.

    I want to put between the breadcrumb and the actual main content, a Tabs sections, like the "Sliding door technique" from Alistapart. But this thing behaves completely different in both browsers. The problem is that I HAVE to use this kind of tabs because my boss asked to :/ But I can't figure out how to solve this.

    Oh, and together with a small gap on the left margin from the breadcrumb that I simply can't understand how that is possible...

    If you please click in this link you can see the exact problem:

    I really need some help here because is 2:00 AM now from sunday and I can't stand with this anymore :/

    Best regards

    I don't have access to FF until Monday, but here's my advice for you now.

    First of all, remove all of their CSS from your page(s) and put it in
    your CSS file "style.css". Keep all of your CSS in that file, not in your pages.
    It makes it easier to troubleshoot. That goes for the "weather" and "webcam" too.

    Next, create a temporary webpage that uses your "style.css" file.
    Only do the CSS menu thing and make it work on that temporary page.
    That's all that page will have, just the menu. If you can make it work there,
    you can make it work on your real page.

    I noticed even with their example:
    http://www.alistapart.com/d/slidingdoors/v1/ex3.html#
    That with IE, there is an image flash-over when the mouse hovers.
    It's looks sort of crappy, but that's IE. With FF, it probably doesn't happen.
    Nothing you can do about that. Check that example page and see if you
    like how it looks before you go through the trouble of using it.

    You may want to find a different CSS tabbed menu without the fancy mouseovers.

    ===========

    On this page:
    http://www-dev-en.njl.ee/timetable/transp

    Content drops down ... right section must be too wide?

    ===========

    Ok, I had put all the CSS in the main file now.

    But the real problem is not with the menus. I disabled the links for now just to fix the positioning for the contents in the right side.

    In IE all the contents are exactly the way I want, BUT with the carriage return problem.
    In FF, it's almost perfect, but ONLY the TABS suffer with the carriage return issue.

    It's probably something with the float property from the TABS CSS of Alistapart that are changing the position of the other elements but I can't understand how I fix that.

    I tried to stack the elements using the "clear" property, in the same way I did to stack the online, main menu, weather and webcam sections one up the another but it's not working with the right content. I have 2 screenshots to ilustrate better the problem.

    It's becoming a desperate situation, as I don't have all the skills to solve this. I'm just in the beggining using CSS to layout a page.

    Thanks anyway, I know it's boring to help like that.

    Best wishes...

    Good morning!

    I think I found one solution: I'm using now absolute positioning for all the right content, and so far it's solving my problem!

    I'm now fixing the small details and I hope to update the main page with my new layout soon!

    Thank you very much for all the support mlseim! you're the man
