View Full Version : How would I style this

I am trying to style some text and I can't figure it out.
Here is what I am trying to do.

Product Photos(Click to View)

I want this on the same line. But if I style them seperately then it puts them one under the other. I can do it by formating the text directly but then that defeats the purpose of the style sheet.

And how does the HTML look like? The code for the text and the surrounding HTML are important.
If you have something like:

<p>Product Photos (Click to View)</p>

You could wrap one part in a span and style both, the p and the span differently (the span style would overwrite the p style)

Thanks a lot! I saw "span" before, but I had never know how it worked.

Span is a semantically neutral element that has no meaning by itself. Just like div doesn’t do anything by itself. Span is the inline equivalent for the block-level div, so to speak, and it becomes useful if you need to apply a style to inline content like text etc. when elements like <strong> or <em> wouldn’t be the right choice.
