offsets in inline elements

I'm trying to make this page:

http://www.frostjedi.com/terra/scrip...ne-offset.html

Look like this page:

http://www.frostjedi.com/terra/scrip...at-height.html

ie. I'm trying to achieve the same effect that I do with floated block
level elements with inline elements and am having some difficulty.
For one, when using inline elements, there are three lines of text
whereas with floats there are just two.

I guess I could maybe add a span tag to the stuff after the <br />,
but is there a way to do it without adding any new elements?

Why do you want to replace floats with inline elements? Inline elements
are /highly/ constrained in what they can have--for example, a <br />
tag. The main purpose for inline elements is for styling a group of
words in a block of text (think ABBR, A, SPAN, etc.), so they lose a lot
of properties.

Perhaps you might try using inline blocks instead? An inline box is a
box that is kept in inline flow (think images).

Hello, I'm posting here with a somewhat technical question in the hope of finding someone with experience coding C++ against the SP_API in OpenSP 1.5. I have an app that uses the SP_API to parse XML and record file offsets for elements and attribute values. It works fine with ISO-8859-1 encoded data. However, in UTF-8 encoded XML data, it corrupts element and attribute names composed of characters that

Hi all, I did make a script/css thing to replace the contextmenu on the website with a new one: http://www.djwice.com/contextmenu.html It works nice in MSIE, but on Netscape (and probable other browsers) it stays on the same place (does not "open'' where the mouse is). And the links do not work when you click on them. If anyone has sugestions on how to improve it, please let me know.

Hi I am building an admin environment for a CMS system. For the issues described I have a testcase available at http://www.ernstdeslebens.ch/csstest/ I am sorry the links are not useable as they lead to password-protected pages; it is only this page for demonstration. Both HTML (strict) and CSS validate.

http://www.frostjedi.com/terra/dev/test.html I'd like to have the colored boxes appear on the same line as "Test" does. The div containing the colored boxes is defined as being inline, yet doesn't seem to be acting as an inline element. I suspect the floats in the images within the div may be contributing to the problem, but I don't know what to do about it if that's the case. Any ideas?

Hi, I work in an embedded environment in which we often use a mix of C and assembly code. Thus a recurring requirement is to be able to take a C header file with structure definitions as input and create an assembly include file with the structure member offsets defined. The problem is that the structure offsets are a complicated function of other syntactic elements such as other structures (I could have a structure as a member of...

I've been experimenting with floats, positioning and offsets (top, left, etc.) to see what happens when you mix the properties together. All this may be old news to most of you, but it was extremely helpful to me. The results are summarized in this chart. In all these tests I was using a single child element inside a containing block.
