I would like to add a vertical line to my website footer, similar to the one in the footer of this website: www.iwearyourshirt.com

I have included my stylesheet, and I have tried several different methods, but I can not get this to happen for me. Any ideas? Thanks.

a {

a:hover {
text-decoration: underline;

I can't see any vertical lines in the footer.

Is this any help. (http://www.web-source.net/web_design_tips/html_horizontal_vertical_lines.htm)

The line on the website you link to is provided by:


border-left:1px solid #515151;

applied to the div with the copyright info etc.

Firebug (http://getfirebug.com/) for Firefox will let you examine the css on any website you want.

Hi,

You can achieve this by applying border-left or border-right css code for the div tag in place where you have your footer, if you use table then same css can be used for td.

Regards
Ameen

I have this code now, but if you see how this looks on my site, you can clearly see that it is not correct. I am not familiar enough with css to make this look right, like it does on www.iwearyourshirt.com
