Errant border...

Errant border...

I have almost completed the menu for a 30 page site and I am happy with how it looks and works.

index1.html

However, there is a small (?) problem:

All looks good in Firefox & Explorer; but in Safari, Chrome and, to a greater extent, Opera the "Baba News" drop down menu has an errant border above it.

I work on a PC so do not yet know whether this also happens on a Mac.

If a solution can be supplied please tell me the alterations to the CSS code as the site is largely completed.

Many thanks

Peter

Peter,

I am on a mac and I see a 1 pixel border above the menu... is that the error you are referring to? To me, it looks good as it is, so I am not sure if you mean there is supposed to be no border whatsoever, or, if there is supposed to be some type of a border and you just happen to be seeing an issue with on certain browsers. Let me know what it is actually supposed to be and I will dig into your source code to see if I can find the issue.

Best regards,

Brian

Hi Brian

As I said I haven't, as yet, been able to view the site on a Mac. The problem showed up on a PC on Safari, Chrome & Opera.

That problem is a clear border (or gap) appearing between the "Baba News" button and the dropdown "News Item" button.

It's strange that it only happens on that specific part of the menu. I have checked my HTML but cannot see a cause. Could be a CSS or Java Script problem...

Thank you for your response.

Best

Peter

ok... I see now what you are talking about... and it is weird because it only happens on three of the items from what I can see (the other two don't even have a dropdown but the space is there). It looks fine in Firefox but Safari on the Mac has the issue. I will poke around to see if I can make any sense of it.

Your source code is showing an extra '<' in the 'News Items' list item under 'Baba News':

<li><span><<a href="http://www.meherbaba.co.uk/news.html">News Items</a></span></li>

(<li><span><<)

That seems to be pushing the menu item down.

Good catch, Neilo!

I bet that would most certainly be the issue.
