CSS Help - Please

Threaded View

I have 2 questions.  I've spent the last 2 hours looking through the
w3schools.org and other websites but cannot figure out if it's even
possible to create a list "without" indentation.  On the following page
I would like the bullets to be flush left with the edge of the table.
Is that possible with the use of css?

Question 2.  On every page of my site is a footer
(http://www.4everhers.com ).  It's been created with tables, lots of
nested tables.  Every day I read stuff posted in this newsgroup hoping
to learn something new. I've read many times that tables are old school
and css is the way to go (at least that's how I interpret it).  I've
already converted a lot font and other tags to css (my code now
validates ... well "almost") but the footer will be more complicated.
Basically, if I were to just jump in and do it I would use tables but
use css to set border width, color, etc.  Somehow I just don't think
that's right.  Recreating the footer will be a great way to learn but
I'm just not sure where to begin.  If someone would give me a "gentle
nudge" in the right direction I would appreciate it!

Please keep in mind that I am in learning mode.

I believe you need to remove the padding from the <ul> element.  I would
probably set it as a class...

insert into css file
.noPadding {
  padding: 0;

insert into html file

<ul class="noPadding">

I haven't tried it, but I think it will work.

I see why you used tables for the footer.  I might even be tempted to say
that it is appropriate in this case.  (So, who is going to flame me first?)
You have a list of headings across the top and links underneath.  You could
try a five column div setup.  Google for multi-column style sheets.  In
your case you would want five equal columns, not the typical one or two
menu columns and a big content column.

Good luck!
