- I'm having problem with my CSS stylesheet [6 Updates]
- RoLaAus <firstname.lastname@example.org> Mar 16 11:52AM -0700
This is my first major foray into CSS and I'm having a bit of a problem.
I'm using another person's existing work and making site updates, but am
having one major problem.
I have a left side navigation section, that should be in the main content
div, and I'm wanting a white background, but it shows up transparent, the
only portion that shows up with a white background ties in with whatever
text or image is in the content div. So, my left side nav is about 2 to 3
times longer than the main content and it doesn't get the white background
for some reason.
You can see what I'm referring to
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm about to scrap all of the
existing work and start over, which is what I prefer to do when it isn't
more trouble than it's worth.

I actually have a follow-up. If I change the background property in the
HTML tag from transparent to white, then when I load up the page it renders
the background "ribbon" image for only 1/2 of the page, then the rest of it
shows up white across the entire page, and not just the main content
(leaving the ~10% border on each side to get the ribbon as I desire it).
I'm really confused!

All I am seeing is text and your divs are stacked, not nested as you are

Your site has no styling but what you was describing sounded like floats
not being cleared

Well, thank you for pointing out the base URL. I did a "save as" on my
webpage hoping it would translate what it needed to, but since I changed
the base URL, I can now see why others are having problems.
I tried to correct the references to the base URL, and the CSS and uploaded
the background image that is not repeating completely like I want, but it
still doesn't work properly when I FTP everything up to where I am sharing
it with you guys, so I guess I am stuck with starting from scratch, which I
was contemplating anyways. I actually started to do just that, and am
having some luck with it. I got sidetracked on an issue (trying to make a
change to the existing, instead of just trying to re-create it as is), but
otherwise I'm pretty happy with the results, so far.
