View Full Version : Problem with <UL> displaying in Safari and Chrome

01-08-2010, 02:44 AM
I'm hoping somebody can help with this small bug.

My page seems to display fine in most browsers, but the unordered list does not style properly in Safari or Google Chrome.

The validator gives me an error for the <ul> tag, stating: "The mentioned element is not allowed to appear in the context in which you've placed it;"

So, I'm not sure if the validation error has anything to do with the fact that 2 browsers refuse to pick up the styling for the list.

Any help with this problem would be appreciated.

The page in question is:


The text within the list shows as black in Safari and Chrome, but it should be pale yellow, just like the rest of the page.

Hello puffnstuff,
Just like the validator says, it's invalid to put block level ul in that inline span.

I don't have Safari or Chrome to check... what happens when you replace that span with a div? (you'd need to get rid of that p tag as well)
