View Full Version : Input inside a div

05-24-2010, 06:36 AM
Hey first time poster, bare with me, but i have a really annoying problem. I just can not get my <input> tag to work inside a <div>...or anything other than my <body> really. But only in chrome and others, IE it works fine. I'm going to post all my code(sorry if thats a no no). It validates under xhtml strict so i'm guessing its not syntax. Also just as a note, it's not my assignment, i'm attempting to do a university assignment of which i don't attend.

you should post your css.

I've removed all my css and javascript in this case to eliminate them as problems. Well, i removed it on the "quantity" div. Is it likely the rest of my css is effecting it? I don't think you want to see it :D. It's unnecessaly repeditive at the moment, so its about 120 lines. Ill be fixing that later.

The code "worked" for me (meaning an input box appeared and I could type in it). Tried it with Firefox and even IE6.
