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

<a name="childrenstext"</a> As the largest volume pedia

to this:

<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. :D
