    Hey everybody, I'm brand-spankin'-new to web design and this is my very first website and I'm having a wee bit of trouble. Here's the issuse: I use disjointed rollovers with the main navigation, the navigation buttons have an opacity of 8.0. Unfortunately, the opacity trickles down to the span itself causing the images that pop up when hovering over the navigation to also have an opacity of 8.0. Setting the spans opacity to 1.0 does not work. Does anybody know of any method to fix this using only xthml and css? I'm trying to avoid JavaScript and Flash for this site. Is there even a way to make disjointed rollovers without using the span tag but only using xhtml and css? Here's the website so you can see for yourself: Anyway, I hope someone has an answer. I may just be out of luck. Thanks guys.

    Using IE6.0 ...
    I don't see any images popping up when hovering over links.

    Here's another example of putting so much work into making
    things work for all browsers ... even to the point of multiple
    CSS stylesheets. But all of that work is for mouse-overs and
    eye candy?

    The amount of development time, troubleshooting time, and
    making changes to all of those stylesheets overwhelms the actual
    purpose of your site ... to sell something.

    Unless those mouse-overs and things are necessary for getting
    customers to buy (or stay with your site and look around), I think
    you're spending your time on the wrong things.

    But your graphics look nice, and you have the information I might
    be looking for if I were to be interested in your produce ...

    I've gotten in trouble before for critique-ing websites when I should
    be answering your actual question ... but I'm really trying to help
    you better succeed in your project. Find or create a CSS template
    with one stylesheet that renders the same on all browsers. It will
    save you so much time and frustration.

    yeah, the rollovers don't work in IE6 and the transparencies don't work in any version of IE. This is a site for a friend and i'm using it basically as a 'test site' (sshh, don't tell anyone) and i'm just trying out a bunch of different things just to try it. I don't mind all that extra work and I'm not on any strict schedule...this site is just a learning experience. You’re tips are definitely noted, they should prove useful when I get further in this whole scene…but this site is just for fun. Thanks!
