    CSS Help

    I'm looking for a little assistence. I'm a web developer finally realizing the benefits of css. I hired someone that claimed to know css and didint. I'm on a hot job in which I need the sheet cleaned up and I'm not familular enough with css to be useful. Does anyone know a service that I can hire that would clean up the styles. Not sure if its that simple, but I thought I would ask.

    Thanks in advance.

    What do you mean? You have created a style sheet and you want it to be 'clean'? The best way to do that is to validate and pick through the errors, or you don't understand, post some snippets and see if we can help you out?

    I've never heard of hiring someone to clean up a style sheet but then again I have helped some people with theirs... you could 'employ' a CSS Integrator to do the job of creating a style sheet for your website tho?

    In other words, you're trying to hire a freelancer?

    [glances aside]

    You can try freelance directories, run a Google search… Depending on what it is, I might be able to be useful; I do my own coding for my website, and I'm teaching a paralegal intern I know some CSS. At least I'll admit if I can't help.

    ^ Yeah same... if you need some help with the CSS then I'm more than happy to give you a hand. I am a CSS Integrator and specialise (lol, sort of) in getting web pages looking the way people plan them to!

    This is a snippet:The "ul" and "li" I dont think I need. I understand the "li" is a list, but I dont have any lists. And the container within container just doesnt make any sense to me.


    <div id="contain">
    <div id="topcontainer" class="maincontainer1">
    <div id="cssdrivemenu1">
    <ul>
    <li>
    <div id="header">
    <div id="headtabledatamenu">
    <ul>
    <li>
    <div id="headleftcol">
    <div id="headtabledata">
    <div id="headmenu">

    <div id="tabledatamenu">
    <ul>
    <li>
    <div id="leftcol">
    <div id="tabledata">
    <p align="center">&nbsp;</p>


    Thanks.

    Container within a container can be used to make some things appear properly; I'd have to see the site formatting to figure out if it's required.

    If that's a direct excerpt from your page, that's probably far too much. You're then correct about the <ul> and <li> needing cut out. And what's with the empty paragraph? "<br>" (HTML) or "<br />" (XHTML) would be more proper.

    Thank you.
    I guess I just need to bite the bullet and start taking it apart one div tag at a time. I'll see where it leads. If I'm going to learn this stuff, its probably a good way to do it.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks again
