    OK I have been learning HTML and CSS. I was practicing. I had a form and I applied CSS to it. I have a form on the practice page which doesnt want to comply with my CSS. I have attached a copy of the HTML and CSS. Please tell me how I can get the form to stick right next to the two boxes on top.

    ok um my 'puter is a little stuffed right now so im just viewing the source from safari, and straight away i can tell you that your markup needs fixing before you touch the CSS.

    you're closing tags inside children of themselves and putting <br>s everywhere. fix that stuff first (there may be other stuff.. run it through the validator), then see what your css does

    OK I cleaned up quite a bit of the HTML thanks to TExtmate. But the confounded form isnt listening still.

    Secondly why should I not use <br> tags? Are they bad? How do I space out when I want to?

    CURSES

    I forgot to attrach again!

    YAY

    I got it. I had to add another div tag under the div tag I already had. I had put in a child div tag under another div tag so I needed to define the child div tag as wel in CSS. Now I have gotten what I wanted!:D

    Thanks That marks the end of this topic.
