Why do I have so much trouble getting my copy to format correctly inside my div?

Jan 10, 2012 7:27 AM

Hey guys, I'm very new at this so please bear with me   I'm designing my first website and I'm at the point where I want to add my copy.  I have a div with a background image, and another div nested inside of it.  When I paste my copy into the nested div, things seem to shift around in the design view.  They usually look ok when I preview in live mode, but it's very troublesome trying to work on the site when things are all jumbled up.  What am I doing wrong?  Should I paste the source code here so you guys can see it?  Thanks in advance!

    Depending on the CSS, live view and design view can be totally different.

    Its often best to type in your copy in the divs and then add the CSS to format it.

    Post the css and the set of divs with some content in order to enable people to try work out what is wrong.
