my boss wants me to completely stylize (down to color,font..EVERYthing) using a css style sheet. I'm not sure it can be done because different parts of the sheet need to be different colors. would it help if i bought a css book or should i bother? is this possible?

For each tag, you can define different styles, and then say which of the classes of style you want to use when you're using the tag.

In theory, one uses HTML to define the content and structure of a document, and CSS to define the style of various parts of the HTML.

create a separate file called 'style.css', in that you will write the style definitions that you will use throughout your HTML document.

.style1 {
color: #FFFFFF;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
background-color: #000000
.style2 {
color: #000000;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: 14px
font-weight: bold;
background-color: #FFFFFF

Inbetween the <HEAD> tags in your HTML document include this line.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css">

Example HTML code to use with the style. Note that to apply a style to a tag use the 'class' paramater.

<td class="style1">Example Text</td>
<td class="stlye2">Example Text</td>

That was very quick example, but I hope it sets you in the right direction!

yes yes..i know about all that. but how do you apply it to different parts of a table?

Isn't Nav's example applying two different styles to two seperate cells of a table? I know jack about CSS and HTML, but that's what it looks like to me.

Well then that's what dm wants, right?

If it's not I don't understand her question.

same here.

ok..ok..i misread..i see...i tried that and it's kinda working...it's hard to describe. for instance, style one will work for part of what it's supposed to, but not all, even though i tag all the parts i want it to. make sense? i might have to save it and show you somehow, but i'll work more on it next week.
i guess it's a backwards complement that my boss wants me to do stuff i don't know how to do....

You can post it here using [ CODE ] opening tag around whatever you want to post with a closing [ /CODE ] tag. (And no spaced in between the [ -word- ] and the square brackets.
