What I want to know is this: how can I apply particular attributes to
columns rather than rows, or can't I, or is there a next best fix?
You might have to study col and colgroup:
Or if you want low tech, it is really simple, you simply class
all the cells in each col and say what colour background you want
in each cell:
Hiya. Thanks for that. Pretty much what I suspected. Just wanted
confirmation really. It is going to be a hard slog, but I am a total
convert to CSS and think it will be worth the effort.
Well, there is nothing hard about the low tech solution as in
last url. And with a good text editor (if you are really keen on
css etc, leave your FrontPage alone for a while). In a good text
editor with Search and Replace functions, low tech solutions
become very easy to implement because you can very easily have
such text as class="" inserted pretty well automatically over a
set of things, even a whole page or a number of pages. But I
won't go into this unless you are keen...
If you want a lower than lower tech solution to inserting class,
just set up at least the <td class=""> text to repeat line after
line and fill in the class name by paste as appropriate.
I should have said about col and colgrup that it might not be as
reliable a method as what I call the low tech solution. Browser
support might be a problem for the more elegant ways of colgroup.
Test for yourself. Do feedback if you discover it is ok! I just
use the low tech so I never investigated properly, I heard
rumours about it though!
Best of luck.
The inline style info is there thanks to FrontPage and will be removed.
Thanks for reminding me though.
