Don't give an image to look at, the URL to the actual page is a lot

One question, what's the doctype of the page? The clip:rect maybe
don't work in Quirks mode.

Why do you think that it doesn't work in Safari/Firefox?
I think it is just working fine in these browsers and only IE is doing
it wrong.

Please note that the border is not inside the content area, so when you
set the width of the content area to 370px the whole box including the
border will have a width of 372px. The values of the clipping rectangle
are offsets relative to the "border edges" (content area including the
browsers), so your clipping rectangle will not cover the last 2 pixels
to the right and bottom, and therefore the right and bottom borders are
not visible.

BTW: "clip:rect(0,37 0,247,0);" is not valid, the unit ("px" is missing
here). This must be clip:rect(0,370 px,247px,0);

WHy do you add the clip rule at all? Probably you can remove this rule
without and side effects.

This page, http://home.earthlink.net/~wallysanford/access.html, shows a border just above the bottom icons, as it should, in IE6, but not Firefox. Strangely, the page from which it was derived, http://home.earthlink.net/~wallysanford/index.html, shows the border in both browsers. I have been staring at this too long. Can anyone point out my error? Thanks. Wally

Rollover triggers a function which changes the submenu.style.display value to "block"...

Hi guys. I'd like to use an image as my border on just the right side of a div, to create an arrow shape on a 'continue' link. I've created the image to use and tried to code it myself, but failed miserably on both Safari and Firefox. Here's my current code: #continue { background-color:#ebebeb; margin:20px 0px 20px 0px; height:45px; border-image-right:url("images/continue-arrow.gif") 100% round; width:80%; float:right
