Problems with browsers, css, html, javascript, images not showing?
February 27, 2008 08:42AM
If you have problems with any of the topics listed then have a look at the previous discussion forums - especially the 2007 forum (8 pages) and the 2006 forum (3 pages) - it is fairly certain that the problem would have been solved before

Remember that there is another set of exercises (i.e. additional to the Masterskill lessons) for HTML, CSS and JavaScript on your CD in the downloads folder.

Look for the files,, and Unzip them and start the lessons by opening the index.htm(l) file

You should do these exercises first if you find that you battle with the Masterskill exercises - for the CSS and JavaScript sections these introductory exercises are sufficient for exam purposes.

You can look here for older but still useful additional material:
such as the two Javascript resources, the Web Design primer and the HTML primer and and the Graphics primer
Attribute selectors- problem with IE
March 26, 2008 03:54PM
Hi Toby

I have applied the attribute selectors to my page and it works in Opera and in Fireworks but not with IE, my IE version is 6.0.2900.2180

I have seen this post at the 2007 posts?

How are we to treat this problem?

ok I have just checked the solution file in here:
C:\CSS\The Cascade\solution files\Illuminati\info.html
C:\CSS\The Cascade\solution files\Illuminati\styles.css
this has:

table[align] { font-family: georgia, serif; }

td[height="25"] { background-color: #eee; }

which works in firefox but not in ie7 - so it seems as if internet explorer does not follow the css standards.

I do not know Marius - avoid using those tags in your final project I suppose

From what I hear the new IE8 (currently in beta) will be much more standards compliant
