    first-letter chrome problem?

    On several pages I use first-letter pseudo to make the first letter of a DIV red but I now find that it does not work for me in Chrome (IE & FF ok).

    The css is in external file and the relevant lines are:
    Code:
    .itembox:first-line {font-weight:bold;}
    .itembox:first-letter {color:red;}
    I use class .itembox0 when I do not want the first letter Red

    Here is a sample page. Can any of you good people help?

    This is hiding the letter:
    Code:
    .itembox:after {
        content: "."; 
        display: block; 
        height: 0; 
        clear: both; 
        visibility: hidden;
    }
    At least 98% of internet users' DNA is identical to that of chimpanzees

    Thanks for pointing that out Fang. Now I will have to remember why I added that particular hack before.

    To save head scratching could I change it so just Chrome ignores that line?

    ....ok I tried adding amended css directly into one page so
    Code:
    #main.itembox:after {
        content: "."; 
        display: block; 
        height: 0; 
        clear: both; 
        visibility: display;
    }
    And it did not make any difference in Chrome.
    I also wonder if it is significant that when I try and select the missing letter in Chrome I cannot select the first two letters.

    Why have you added :after? It is a problem in Chrome and does nothing in other browsers.

    I wanted my text and images to be 'contained' by my itembox DIVs and I think this is where it came from

    Use overflow to clear not that method.

    Thanks again Fang. Seems things have moved along since I did my pages - and got simpler for a change! Looks like I can get rid of the code above and replace it with overflow:hidden. Easy enough but I have quite a few pages to check.
