'site logo' design help required

P: n/a
I have a (rather challenged) css design for my site logo at
http://www.lensescapes.com/tst/photologo.jsp

It shows not only the current rendering of the design,
but also has links to the CSS behind it, and shows a
GIF of how I'd like it to look.

In the most recent Windows - IE6 and Mozilla 1.3a
show that the 'lens' and 'escapes' parts do not fill
the boxes they are in, which makes it look rather
horrible.

How can I make my CSS design closer to the GIF?

Any help appreciated.

I thought I'd give it a try and this is what I came up with:

This would work much better if you set widths in em units instead of px.
At my larger-than-average text size, "photography" overflows the box.
Since it's all text, no graphics, em or ex units should work very nicely.

Just a question?

Why would you want to have the logo in CSS - What's wrong with the GIF?

Is it the minor added benefit of SEO that your looking for? The extra
server hit for the gif?

A logo is something that you want to always be rendered exactly the same
- at least for commercial sites you do.

Sorry for the tardy reply.

I want the _user_ to choose what size they want the
text in their browser, I just need for the design to be
'bigger than other' text to indicate that it is a site logo..

I missed that bit when I first responded and you make an
interesting point. While I'm not certain of the legalities, from
a technical viewpoint I'd have to think that different sized
monitors on different resolutions of both color depth and
pixel width and height would make it impractical to expect
that any _image_ is rendered exactly the same on the screens
of different PC's..

Also, don't some sites seem to use a 'main logo' that has
striking colors, but a 'monochrome-embossed form' of the
same emblem may be used as the 'background watermark'
on each page?

Hi,

I agree. A logo sends a message in a clearly recognizable form. It
may incorporate graphics, particular fonts, whatever. But having your
site name in sans-serif or whatever over different colors does not say
"logo" to me.
