View Full Version : CSS title bar code...I'm stuck

Ok, I gots a question for you CSS nuts

Here is my code:

<title>New Design</title>
<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
@import url(company.css);
H1 { background color: #330000; color: orange; font-family: impact }
P { background: #330000; font-family: courier }
A:link { text-decoration: none }
A:active { text-decoration: none }
A:visited { text-decoration: none }
B { font-size: 15pt; line-height: 20pt }
<body bgcolor="#000033">

<P STYLE="font-size: 30pt; color: green; font-family: papyrus, serif">This is a</P>

<P STYLE="margin-top: -45px; margin-left: 60px; color: green; font-size: 28pt; font-weight: bold; font-family: papyrus, sans-serif">Test</P>


If you look at the background color on the text it is "indented" on the word test. How can I make this a perfect rectangle around my text. I am trying to make a title bar for my site.

by the way, I want the text to overlap a little like I have it.

Curious, why are you using capital letters? Are you using HTML transitional instead of XHTML?

Huh? I'm confused. Capital letters? You mean for typing the word STYLE in my code? Just habit I guess.

And no, I am not using XHTML, just HTML.

Yeah, that's what I was meaning. Just curious.
