CSS Problem

Threaded View
I'm fairly new to CSS and have come up against a most frustrating

I have placed a table at the head of each section of my newsletter. I
have given the table a background image and then tried to style the
banner text over that image:

td.bannertxt {
    font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 14px;
    font-weight: bold;

I am using the stylesheet offsite. All other features of the sheet
work fine, but this section simply won't work.

Here's the code for the banner:

<TABLE width=600 height="30" border=0 align=center cellPadding=0
<TD class=bannertxt align=left width=600>BANNER Title</td>

The style works during construction but as soon as it is uploaded it
fails. Everything is in lower case in the stylesheet. I am using
Dreamweaver, Topstyle and IE 6.0 in XP

I'd be grateful for any help.

why not use a <div> with a background image?

just specify the generic family so the visitor gets their preferred font
for that family. never use verdana except on your own computer.

don't specify font sizes in px. 100% is very nice.

the background attribute is only valid on the <body> element

#my-banner{width:100%;height:30px;background:#FFF url(http://...)repeat};

<div id="my-banner"><img ....></div>
