I want to get the image on the same line as "Your browser passed the" almost right next to that line.

Please see the attached image.
<span style="background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat left center; padding:10px; margin-bottom:10px;">Your browser passed the<br />requirements to use our service!</span>

You need to set the background position to top left

Change: background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat left center

To: background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat left top

or set exact space by changing:

background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat left center

to:

background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat left 5px

If you want to move it in closer to the text then you can use a px value,

e.g. background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat 15px 5px

Hi,

This is where I want it to be, but the top is being cut off.
<span id="msgCookieSuccess" class="msgSuccess" style="background:url(images/TEST_IMAGES/accept.png) no-repeat no-repeat 5px 10px; padding:10px; margin-right:3px;">Your browser passed the<br />requirements to use our service!</span>

Try using a div instead of a span, the span is an inline tag, you should be using a block element,

Or change the span to a block element with display:block;

What other CSS is controlling #msgCookieSuccess and .msgSuccess

This may be causing the problem.

Have you got the code online to have a look at?

Here is everything.
<style type="text/css">
    .msgSuccess
    {
        color: green;
	    font-weight:bold;
        display: none;
    }
    .msgError
    {
        color: red;
		font-weight:bold;
        display: none;
    }
</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
    function check() {
        document.getElementById('msgJavaScriptError').style.display = 'none';
        document.getElementById('msgJavaScriptSuccess').style.display = 'none';


        if (navigator.cookieEnabled) {
            document.getElementById('msgCookieSuccess').style.display = 'inline';
            document.getElementById('login_button').disabled = false; // Enable login button
        }
        else {
            // Cookie are not enabled
            document.getElementById('msgCookieError').style.display = 'inline';
        }
    }
	window.onload = function () { document.forms.login.amember_login.focus(); } 

//window.onload = function () { check(); document.forms.login.amember_login.focus(); }
-->
</script>

change where it says: document.getElementById('msgCookieSuccess').style.display = 'inline';

to: document.getElementById('msgCookieSuccess').style.display = 'block';

in 2 places

It is forcing it to be an inline element.

Due to a spacing issue, I can't have a <br> which block includes.

It looks like it should be a block element on the page!

Making a block element does not make a <br>.

Can you explain what you want a little better.

To get the background to position in the "block" you will need it to be a block element

Why don't you just make this whole thing an image so you can put the check image right where you want it?

1) Instead of span use Div.
2) padding left should be the width of the icon + 2 px
3) padding bottom should be height of the icon.

Hope this helps

As others have said, set it to a DIV, instead of a SPAN. It will then be a block level element and work the way you want it to. You'll probably need to set it to display Block in your Javascript. If the BR is an issue, remove it and set a width on the block - let the line break occur naturally.




#msgCookieSuccess {
	background:url('accept.png') no-repeat;
	padding-left:35px;
	width:200px;
}


<div id="msgCookieSuccess" class="msgSuccess">Your browser passed the requirements to use our service!</div>

It won't actually matter if it is a div or span if you are setting it as a block element.

If space is a problem then maybe try absolutely possitioning it? It will need to be a block element for it to look how you have requested it though!

I gave you all those answers, but you wouldn't accept that it needed to be a block element!

You obviously don't believe I was any help to you in getting this question answered!
