Hi all, been a while since I've been here and thought I came a long way with HTML \CSS but found myself stuck and have tried everything under the sun to solve this.

I have a banner on my "soon to be web site". The banner has a good 20 to 30 px space from top of browser window to top of banner. I really want to get rid of that space and have tried margin, div, padding, etc... and nothing works. I am in Firefox right now. I don't know if anyone has tackled this before but if you have, any suggestions would be highly appreciated so I can move on with this. smile.gif I included a screen shot of the space above banner. I did it once but then all images overlapped. glare.gif Just a note, the white is from screen shot, the banner just has to go up to the blue background.

Thanks,

Paul

Thanks for the reply. I would but I am not putting it on the server until it's finished and just viewing it browser until then. I can attach the files or something sad.gif Is that ok?

Thanks,

Well that's ok, I didn't expect anyone to do so. I simply wanted to know if there was some code to move the banner up. I'll keep searching.

Thanks Darin, I did try that , one of the first things I tried . I finally figured out a way {top: -4px} in the code. I decided to try a negative and it worked. However after, I did something wrong and now the page scrolls over as if having two pages side by side but right side blank. I couldn't get tables to show up either no matter what code I used. So after days of work, I give up as it's all ruined and I am not going over the whole thing again. sad.gif That's life I guess. wink.gif

Anyhow, thanks for the reply, much appreciated.

Take care,

Paul

Can you provide the URL (address) of a document that demonstrates the problem?

Hi, well, I would upload the html file as a whole, w\o images. That will still show the issue with the window. I'll do that. You can see where the images end by the blank image squares and is a length of 1024 but the page goes all the way past them.

Cheers,

I recommend that you start by fixing the markup errors reported by our online validator.

Hi, I did go there, and have been working on it. However, I think my whole page must be bad. I don't know. It tells me the <style> elements are not allowed, yet if I remove them, it tells me it's missing something, not to mention my page won't load correctly. blink.gif Every time I corrected an error, 3 more would show when validating. I don't know. I was told in order to truly learn CSS and XHTML, to simply do it and make mistakes, well, I have made enough to last a loongg time now. I went through the W3C for CSS and XHTML and such but I don't think I am getting it. I am simply getting frustrated with this whole mess. BTW, if I delete everything and only everything, then the page is spaced correctly... lol. blink.gif wacko.gif

I won't bother anyone with this any more, it's going nowhere anyway and just wasting people's time.

Thanks

Paul

Well, the style element must go inside the head element, and once you have any content that goes inside the body element, the head element automatically closes.

Also, you're using a lot of XHTML syntax. Stick to HTML for now. For example, change
CODE
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="gimpstyle.css" />
to
CODE
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"
href="gimpstyle.css">

And change
CODE
<img src="/home/gimpguy/Desktop/Gimpguywebpage/gimpimages/fortde2.png" /img>
to
CODE
<img src="/home/gimpguy/Desktop/Gimpguywebpage/gimpimages/fortde2.png" alt="...">

For appropriate values for the alt attribute, see ALT texts in IMG.

Thanks for the information. You must have far more patience than I do wink.gif Since you took the time to post that I figured, I should at least give it a shot. So I did read that link and it helped greatly. Also, I figured out the double space issue where the page is flowing over to the right. It had to do with a bad, well, somewhat bad image. It was keeping 1024 px wide no matter what I did so finally I deleted it completely and remade it, now I don't have the flow over. The only issue I am back to is my banner too far down from the top but I'll worry about that after I clean up this mess I made. So it may just make it yet. Does anyone else ever get to boiling point over a web page? lol or just me? blink.gif

Thanks for the help , truly appreciated.

Paul

Just a follow up, the page is going well now "knock on wood". A couple of bumps in the road but thanks for the help. I was about to give up but glad I didn't.

Cheers,

Paul
