View Full Version : Word wrap/css margin issue...

Can someone help me pinpoint a problem with the text wrap/left margin issue inside the "INDUSTRY NEWS BRIEFS - TECHNOLOGY & MEDIA" box on this page: http://www.mediamogulsweb.com/industry_news.shtml#briefs...

The copy should be flush left, aligned with the subheads.....It's definitely a CSS problem...But I've been looking at this for a little bit, and I'm not making any progress...thanks for any help! :thumbsup:

You're surrounding the text you need aligned with <span>. <span> is inline, meaning the margin assigned to it won't "wrap" along with it.

If you place your text in <p> tags-- which you should be doing anyway-- you can apply a little margin or padding and it'll wrap just fine.

You could actually save TONS of code and space by coding that page a little more semantically; plus it'll make it easier to debug. It took awhile for me to wade through your tables and font tags to find the problem...

thanks for wading throught that and for the tip about the <span> and <p> tags...sorry if the code is a little sloppy, some of it isn't mine...anyway, your tip worked... :thumbsup:
