When I go to validate my style sheet, there aren't any "real" errors (after a couple of revisions ), only several warnings:

quote:
Line : 2 Level : 1 You have no color with your background-color : body
Line : 3 Level : 1 You have no color with your background-color : div.header
Line : 4 Level : 1 You have no color with your background-color : div.leftcol
.
.
.
Line : 11 Level : 1 You have no background-color with your color : span.comment
Line : 15 Level : 1 You have no background-color with your color : a
Line : 16 Level : 1 You have no background-color with your color : a:visited


And so on, for the whole page...

Do you actually have to declare both the color and background color of every element that supports those attributes?

Also, (kind of relating to my question in the html forum), does "text-align:center" not work with the <span> tag?


I might get the hang of this eventually...

Sing it with me... You can't have one without the other!

Keep in mind, transparent and inherit are also valid "colors".

^ hehe

technically, you should.

will your apges cease to function if you don't? No.....

But you'll be sure to have covered all your bases if you do, and as brice said, transparent and inherit are valid and useful. So use them =)

Yup yup yup. Gotta do it. It's kind of like programming in Ada where things are designed to save you from yourself.

Regarding your other question. No, it won't work since <span> is an inline element. Use <div>

Ohhhh, that's where I'd seen transparent mentioned a couple times, now it makes sense.

And that's what I figured about the span tag, just wanted to make sure.


Ah, I love this place. Thanks ya'll.
