    Please Take A Look At My Page?

    engmix Level 1
      Hi,
      I have a page I'm working on: http://globalvisiondesigns.com/recording.html

      There should be text on the left, and a small flash movie on the right. In FF and IE (on Mac OSX Tiger) the text wrap's perfectly. But in Safari the text is being pulled down to the bottom of the flash movie. Could someone have a look in Safari and see if you are having the same problem? If so, any fixes or tutorials would be welcome! I have looked around with no success?

      Thanks!

          Anybody have a Mac out there?

          The formating is even working in Opera.

            Youll have to put the flash in a <div>. Give it a specific width, 292px
            and float it right.

            #flashDiv {
            width: 292px;
            float: right;
            }

              Hi OS,
              Thanks for the reply. Obviously I'm using tables in this layout. Are you suggesting that I nest the text in the same Div containing the flash? Or create two different Div's, one for flash, another for text?

              By the way, I'm in the middle of a book on Designing without Tables. My next site will, for the most part, be using CSS. So, thanks for any help you can add, since I am very new to this. :)

                Seperate the text from the Falsh <div>. I found it a bit confusing (and
                maybe so did Safari) when looking at your code having so many <h1> tags.

                But yes I would simplify it a bit as you only want the Flash to float
                right, not the page title. It will work I have already tested it in Safari.

                Hummm ok would be interested to see the book when its finished.

                  Since you have surrounded your body copy with <h1> tags and haven't
                  redefined them in your CSS, the browser may be treating all of your body
                  copy as a block-level element because <h1> is by default, forcing a new
                  line.

                  What's wrong with <p>?

                      Learning on the fly here folks. I'm a full time record producer, with intense technical learning curves, even after 21 years that I have to deal with. I have TOTALLY leaped off the plank blindfolded with web design. It's good to focus on non-musical work, and use my brain in a different way then I do when making records. With that said, h1, <p>, tag this and tag that, it's a new world for me. But, I'm slowly getting it, mostly by every mistake I make, and mostly from the help of you all. Much appreciation, and thanks for your patience!

                          Os and James. The information you both gave me was very helpful, and my page looks the way I want it to. It does validate, and seems to work well in most browsers on my mac. I'm sure my code is still not as streamlined as it could be. But certainly a big improvement!

                          Cheers
