I have several pages that I have fixed backgrounds on and the text scrolls over it. this works well in IE but wont work in firefox
just installed firefox today and discovered this problem
is there a fix for this ?
or a variation of html code that both IE and firefox will recognise ?
following example is from my main home page
<body background="050120.jpg" bgproperties="fixed" >
would be sad if I couldnt overcome this problem, firefox otherwise seems to be a good prog, dont wanna uninstall it
thanks in advance
PS. am using XP Pro
<code>background: url(050120.jpg) fixed;</code> for shorter
LOL. Whenever something dosn't work in Firefox, you have made a mistake in your code or you've shown total disregard for the standards. It's NEVER the 'prog', as you call it.
It's very often the 'prog'. Don't make us look stupid by making these kinds of statements.
thanks for the suggestions that solved the problem
I dont claim to be an expert html'er so am easily caught out on occassions
also thanks for the link to NVU I wasnt aware of that page authoring system
You will find NVU a great application. It's still new and being developed (0.9 should be releases sometime in the next few days/weeks), however it is probably one of the most standards based authoring system with excelent features, plus it's free .
If you have any questions about it or problems, post back here and we can help you out.
you may regret that offer haha
ok I downloaded and installed the current version of NVU (0.81)
will play with it and see how we go thanks for the reccomendation
here is the first question .... I notice that when I load one of my html pages into it it converts all the spaces in image files to %20 and also brackets ( ) to other characters
Does this have to happen ? I looked through the settings and couldnt find a way to give the normal look ? the effect bloats out the length of the filename and makes it difficult to see at a glance the real filename that is being delt with
eg normal... 040904 lpm lightning sequence8.jpg
it doesn't _have_ to, but it's a well-established way of doing things that will probably take a long time to do away with
it's a good idea to not use spaces or capital letters - in fact if you can stick to letters, numbers, underscores and hyphens, you'll do well
OK I'm sorry let me restate that...
If something doesn't work in firefox, it's highly likely you have made a mistake in your code or haven't respected the standards. The first thing you should do is validate your CSS and HTML and check the page with the lastest version of Opera.
I got a bit carried away because he said "firefox otherwise seems to be a good prog, dont wanna uninstall it ". :)
Spaces are not valid in URLs; the standards require them to be encoded as %20 when used. You're best off not using filenames with spaces in them if you don't want messy URLs from them.
ok thats fair comment
I appreciate the thoughts. they are only there coz thats the way I save my
digital pics on my puter and Im just copy and pasting those filenames into
the html doc.
looks like I will have to change my ways when doing web pages
I've never talked to a single person who could use Amaya for anything other than testcases without literally crying.
I tried it once a long time ago. I don't remember much about it, but obviously I wasn't impressed since I haven't used it since.
Amaya scares me almost as much as Opera.
