searching for logical error in CSS


i have a logical error in my css file, but i don't no where.

have a look:


i comment this lines:

span.rootline {left: 8pt; font-family: font-family:Arial, Helvetica,
span.rootline a:link{color:#0 00000;font-size:8pt;
text-decoration:unde rline;}
span.rootline a:visited{color :#000000;font-size:8pt;
text-decoration:unde rline;}
span.rootline a:hover{;color: #FF0000;font-size:8pt;
text-decoration:over line underline;}
span.rootline a:active{color: #000000;font-size:8pt;
text-decoration:unde rline;}


because, they don't work. I have a rootline in my <div> "top", and with
some css commands. The span "rootline" is in the div "top".

#top {
padding-left : .5em;
padding-right : .5em;
padding-bottom: .5em;
border-bottom : 1px solid #808080;
height: 10px;
background-repeat: repeat-y;
margin-right: 5px;
font-size: 8pt;

I want to controll the font and color only in my span "rootline". The
page is: http://www.lippelt-back.com/Mini_Rustica.53.0.html.

What i did wrong?

You don't have a span with class rootline in your html.

You don't have any span in your html to be precise.

You want a.rootline:link instead of span.rootline a:link

In addition to Els' comment, note the double font-family in the line above.

Also, 8pt fonts? Why are you sizing 1) in pt, which is an absolute
physical size and makes little sense on screen and 2) so small?

Mmmm.... bakery products!

"Gee, it looks fine on my computer"

"Your website is supposed to look good on other people's computers not

"Won't it look the same>"


"Ok, sorry, I'll change them to points then"

"thump thump thump"

Figured I just saved about 7 posts in this thread. Carry on.

OP - use % and only % as the unit for font-size, with 100% being the
"normal" text size on the page. You want to know why, read the ng
archives. It's sound advice, and it'll change how you design for the web
for the better.

Hi I have a binary file which contains records sorted by Identifiers which are strings. The Identifiers are stored in ascending order.
