    Text Spacing Issue

    The site I'm working on is at:
    http://www.rave7pt0.net/slavefan/

    You'll find that the drop down menus will appear to be cut off in IE if you switch to anything but "Smaller" in the View >> Text Size menu. The text doesn't actually change size, but the spacing changes and throws the whole system off. The size of those drop downs is absolute, so any change, either shorter or longer makes it look wrong.

    How can I fix this problem, and make it compatable regardless of what setting IE is on?

    In IE look for this in the code for each item.
    new ypSlideOutMenu("menu1", "down", 150, 141, 132, 83)
    Somehow this code reads different in NS4.7, and change the values to size and position the text boxes while the text is set to its largest. Then all the text will fit. Remember it says text larger or smaller. Not the dropdown. The code isn't compatible with NS4.7 either, but there are menu's like this that is compatible. Do a search forit.

    Spacing and size

    Hi,

    Is there any CSS that I can use to make all spacing smaller?
    Space between text, button, table, etc.

    Or is there any CSS setting for PDA ?

    Thanks.

    As you question implies. Yes and no, but in general there is. You have to be more specific. Post something in particular.

    Basically, I want to set everything as small as possible, with as litle as html code.

    For example, I want all font to be size = 1.

    In a <table> I must put <font>text</font> in every table cell. So, it's too much in the html code.

    I tried

    <font size="1">
    <table>
    ....
    </table>
    </font>

    but it does not work.

    I was wondering if there is CSS that I can use for this purpose and supported by PDA (or at least Pocket PC web browser). Because I heard, CSS is not supported in PDA / Pocket PC, is this true?

    Also, is there any html code to make "table cell" SMALLER (in term of size).

    Thanks for all your help.

    If most of what you are doing is in text,you can do that without tables. Even a few images mixed with your text can be aligned without a table.
    Also, is there any html code to make "table cell" SMALLER (in term of size).
    Generally you set the size but if you haven't, it will expand in proportion to what is inside it.
