HTMLHelp Forums _ Markup (HTML, XHTML, XML) _ block elements inline

Posted by: malfist May 19 2008, 09:36 AM

I have two block elements, a textarea and a multipule select listbox. How can I display them inline? display:inline doesn't work or is ignored by the crazy CSS the previous programmer wrote. The tables can do it but it's a mess.

Any suggestions?

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

No, it's in an admin only part of the webpage. Sorry, I think I'll just leave it on two lines, not that big of a deal. I've got bigger fish to fry, as in, getting the whole thing working (The previous programmer claimed it was finished with the only part working was the part that I had done, two major major parts that he had done was incomplete and broken.)

Why don't you just check his CSS to see what he has done to make those elements not to be inline and remove it

Hope the fish is tasty! happy.gif

because he uses 2-3 css files in every page and only one is consistent (and usually the problem) which is the reset.css to make everything cross-browsers look the same. The css the tables use is in one of those files but those files are not just used for the small thing I'm developing, but rather the entire company page.

I think I know where the problem, but to fix it would be too much of a hassle. Everything goes through the 'skin' php page, and all form elements are in a styled list. All. It's a pain, I can work around it, but I don't feel it's needed unless my boss asks me too. Lucky, I'm now the lead programmer so I can change that if I want.

So how do you expect anyone to be able to help you?
