How'd These Boxes Get Drawn???

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Charles Richmond, Feb 16, 2014.

  1. On the following web page in the bottom half, text posted from different
    people is enclosed in a rounded-corner "cartoon balloon" style. How was
    that accomplished in HTML??? I looked at the source of the page, but it was
    *not* clear to me...

    check the css and look for stuff that begins with -moz.
    as I understand it, older browsers will just show the regular square

    It's using images for the rounded DIV box tip, via CSS.

    Without image, you can use CSS style like this:

    ..roundedBox {
    display: inline-block;
    background: #bbf;
    padding: 10px;
    border-radius: 10px; /* the rounded border tip */

    <div class="roundedBox">
    Some text in the rounded box

  4. Additionally, -moz-border-radius isn't need any more because Mozilla
    browsers support border-radius and unlike IE user, Mozilla browser users
    tend to upgrade.

  6. How many times do we have to tell you not to do this before you finally
    learn not to post your erroneous and misguided understanding of things as
    if they were accurate facts.

    Yeah, good luck with that. Been trying to tell him that in other
    groups for years.

    The question posed to the supercomputer was, "What is the meaning of life?"
    The answer provided after many years was, " 42 ".

  12. True (or close), but the question was
    wrong. The next computer would determine
    the question.

  14. You're still forgetting the computer that came afterwards to
    determine what the real question was. That computer was
    earth and was destroyed just seconds before the final
    computation. The mice were furious. Have you read all the
    books? (Although only the first two books were extraordinary)

  15. I used the CSS and got rounded corners. But I wanted the outer border of my
    tables to be shown, but *not* the border around each data item (<TD>) or row
    (<TR>). How can I surpress the boxes except for the outer box around the

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Put a border on the table element but border: 0; on the table cell

    td {border: 0;}


    td {border: none;}

    Same for th if you want.

    Users with vision loss or cognitive challenges often require specific foreground (text)
    and background color combinations.

    For instance, many people with low vision find it much easier to see
    a Web page that has white text on a black background,
    so they may have set their user agent to create this contrast.

    If the author specifies that the text must be black,
    then it may override the settings of the user agent and render
    a page that has black text (specified by the author)
    on black background (that was set in the user agent).

    This principle also works in reverse.
    If the Webmaster forces the background to be white,
    then the white background specified by the author would be the same color as the white text
    (which was set in the user agent)
    rendering the page unusable to the user.

    Therefore, if the author specifies a foreground (text) color then
    they should also specify a background color which has sufficient contrast
    (link) with the foreground and vice versa.Element specifies
    background color but not specify foreground (text) color
