    CSS link text positioning problem

    I am having a problem on the following page with the Junior League logo box. In the second box, the "legal notice" link is below the logo whereas I want it to be to the right of the logo as it is in the bottom box. In the bottom box, I remove the anchor tag and it appears correctly. If I eliminate the first box, the second box appears correctly.


    I can't figure out how to change the code so that the "legal notice" text is both a link and appears correctly positioned. I am new to CSS positioning.

    Here is the test page with the pared down code:

    Thank you for your help.

    I discovered how to fix this problem...

    I was missing an end ">" on my anchor tag in the first block. I changed this:

    Code:
    <a name="childrenstext"</a> As the largest volume pedia
    to this:

    Code:
    <a name="childrenstext"></a> As the largest volume pedia
    and my "legal notice" link is positioned correctly. I am not sure that I understand why, but there is the answer.

    I figured this out by deleting different elements one at a time and then looking at the results.

    Heh heh...You can always run your pages thru the w3c.org validator which will point out any errors, too.
    Zoobie or not Zoobie...That is the problem.
