<PRE>/CSS combination in IE3.0 possible?

Hello,

Is it possible to use <PRE></PRE> in IE3 and still be able to apply styles to the text? Right now, I have a set-up that appearsto chose for either. Could it be that IE3.0 has a bug whereby .css files located in another directory aren't recognized?

Thank you,

John

No. It's not even possible in Ver. 4 browsers. The very nature of the <PRE> tag is to leave formatting as it is. Most of the time, that requires use of a mono-spaced font such as Courier (remember that plain text does not have "tabs").

The only alternative is to copy all your text into tables and use CSS and tables rather than the <PRE> tag.
