    HTML & CSS problems

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new around here and a bit new to HTML & CSS. I'm helping a friend out with a website. The issue I'm having right now is if I was to resize the window, the text moves and then runs over the logo or other text. Is there an easy way to put in CSS to where when the text gets so far, it stops?

    I hope I'm explaining this well enough. If not, please let me know.

    Here is a link to the current page at the moment:

    Cody Holland

    Thanks!

    Hello tarsier7,
    Instead of using so much ap, you should just let the document flow naturally. You can use floats to put elements beside each other and margins will make space where you need. Have a look at the pitfalls of absolute positioning here.
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    I look at my answer today and I realize it may not be a lot of help. Let me know if you'd like a better example and I'll whip something up for you.
