How to understand the physical directory of my iPage web host?

Got a question... How to understand the physical directory of my iPage web host? Many thanks for any comment. Another question on my mind: Hi, I have been trying to make my iPage site validate as html strict, so I made some changes based on the output of the validator. I changed this line:.


And added this css:.

Both the css and html now validate. However, instead of sitting in the.

Middle (as written with old code).

As it should, it now sits in the.

Top left corner (as written with new code).


Edit: This is what happens in Mozilla Firebird (gecko). In IE, the new version centers the table but doesnt 'middle it' vertically..

Any help appreciated..

Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can help you..

Funny, i've always used text-align for objects and had no probs,if you want change the display to inline.


Comment #2

What browsers have you tested, though? I believe that IE and Opera use "text-align" to act on objects, but I am reasonably certain that Mozilla does not...

Comment #3

Please could you explain this to me ? I dont really understand what to do with it..

I tried adding display:inline; to .PlaceholderTD but no change occured as you can see at the original url...

Comment #4

I set the height & width and the centering in both the td and the table, but it still doesnt work...

Comment #5

What is wrong with.

PlaceholderTD { height:100%; width:100%; text-align:center; vertical-align:middle;.

Align: center;.


Comment #6

Well, I have no idea. I am completely stumped on this one..

I don't believe I've seen the "align" attribute in CSS..

I see you now have it aligning horizontally in Mozilla, but it still isn't aligning vertically. I wonder if it has to do with "height: 100%". It isn't defined explicity in the CSS rec. how a percentage should be dealt with when there is no containing block. One would think that it would be with respect to the UA viewport, but that is up to the designers of the UA...

If you put it locally and remove the class from the table it centers fine:.

<TABLE summary="placeholderTable" cellSpacing=0 cellpadding="0" border="0" style="width:100%;height:100%;">.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but the class wasn't being called through and the table was sizing to it's content, not 100%, that's why it was sticking to the top of the screen..

/added but ofcourse it worked fine in ie so it can't be a miss-naming issue, maybe some conflicting name?..

Comment #8

Do this guys and see what happends. it may explain a few things. add.

Border-style : ridge;.

To the .placeholderTable class and the same to the .wrapper class. tell me what you see?.

Also you guys are worried about a table not centering when it is the div container that holds everything in place. center the div and you should have it. after you take out all the display: inline attributes.



Doesn't work on images, at least in mozilla1.3 it doesn't..

Then after doing all that, add.

Position : absolute;.

To the .wrapper class...

Comment #9

You know what I never noticed it was in a div, works now without the display:inline, also remove the extra table, you don't need it seeing as you have it in a div..

Display:inline should.


In mozilla but it's support is partial across the board really. Well done scoutt, that was beginning to bug me..

Comment #10

I am very grateful for all the help offered, however I am struggling to work out what changes need to be made. I would appreciate if someone could repost the code with necesary changes marked so I can uinderstand what has been done..
