RootsWeb Freepages Banners Display

PROBLEM: I just posted a new page, and no matter what I try I can’t get my (4%) margins to function, page goes border to border and is harder to read. The lower banner has picked up on my link colour/style, which is too big for the banner, so not pretty. (I use larger fonts since a contact reminded me most fh (family history) fiends are not quite so young, and don’t see quite so well, especially at night when much of this is done).

SOLUTION: Provided by Barry Carlson

The quick work-around is to create a style for your margins, then insert a <.div> tag under the <.body> tag with a closing div prior to the closing < ./body>tag.

In your styles add the following:-

.bdy { margin-left: 4%; margin-right:4%; }

and the div should look like this – <.div class=”bdy”>

EXAMPLE:

All styling moved to an external style sheet

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~gearyfamily/rootsweb-banner3.htm

This will cause the Rootsweb banner to display across the entire width of the top and bottom of the page as Rootsweb intended. Be aware that at a resolution of 800×600, this will cause a horizontal scroll.
