Howdy,
I have this statement in all my .htmls:

BODY {font: 11pt "Arial";text-align: justify;margin-left: 15px;margin-right: 5px}
  H1 {font: 12pt "Arial" Helvetica; color: navy; font-weight: bold; }
  H2 {font: 14pt "Times Roman" ; color: black; font-weight: bold; }
 
  A:link {font: 11pt "Arial" Helvetica; color: blue; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none}
  A:visited {font: 11pt "Arial" Helvetica; color: navy; font-weight: bold; text-decoration: none}

I hate that justifying. is there a wrap statement for the right align. I don't want any scroolbars.

Plus, i'd like to be able to click on a catagory in my left frame and have it open to a full window, with the back button option.


Thinking about hiring someone to write a good CSS so I can concentrate on the content of my site rather than fight html,

Please see:

and poke around.

lemme know if this is the right area for CSS.

Thanks,
bud

Bud, Could you please clarify... What exactly do you want to be able to do with the CSS?

Hi matt,
Well, I'm not very knowledgable in web design.
I now with Css you can have all your .html have tha same look, feel ext;

That what i need.
Mainly, I would like to solve the wrap, justify mystery that i mentioned inmy question and be able to click a topic inmy left frame and have the right screen jump to full screen.

Or, have my topics in a full screen width top frame, and call a .html into a full screen width to a larger bottom frame.

Did you look at my site??

Hi smeebud,

"text-align" possible values are: left, right, center, justify. So, if i've got you right, you should just need to set:

text-align: right

As for the opening to a full window, assuming that you are using anchors, just specify a TARGET like this:

<A HREF="somePage.htm" TARGET="_top">

Feel free to ask more,

-julio


P.S.:
> Lemme know if this is the right area for CSS
Well, the Web Authoring area is maybe the right place, but i don't mind to answer here ;)

julio,
Ok,
Remember I don't know what I'm doing::))
where you say:
"text-align" possible values are: left, right, center, justify. So, if i've got you right, you should just need to set:
text-align: right
    As for the opening to a full window, assuming that you are using anchors, just specify a TARGET like this:
<A HREF="somePage.htm" TARGET="_top">"

In my statement:
BODY {font: 11pt "Arial";text-align: justify;margin-left: 15px;margin-right: 5px}
Exactly how should it be changed.

Thanks a lot.

Assuming right alignment, and with a little fix ("font" is not standard), it would look like:

      BODY {
        font-size: 11pt;
        font-family: Arial;
        text-align: right;
        margin-left: 15px;
        margin-right: 5px;
      }

Line breaks are not required, but help readability.
The "text-align" property - just to tell - has the same meaning it would in a word processor.
