    Acronyms displaying underlined in firefox


    win xp home sp3
    dreamweaver cs3
    IE8
    firefox 3.6.3

    This is probably pretty obvious to an experienced css user, but me………


    All the text tagged as <acronym>xxxx</acronym> in the html file is displaying underlined in firefox, but not in IE.

    This wasn't happening until a couple of days ago - the only thing iv'e changed in the html file is to add the underlined part of this: <link href="style.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen"/> & to add this line: <link href="printstyle.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print"/> & undoing those doesn’t help, so I guess it’s in the css.

    I've been looking at csszengarden & this problem doesn’t happen in csszengarden homepage but it does , in csszengarden>CSS Co., Ltd, but I can’t see what the difference is.

    BUT, in both of those it DOES happen in the plain text file (“Download the sample html file…” link).

    Any ideas, anyone?

    TIA

    What you see is the default style for Firefox.


    From html.css
    Code:
    /* titles */
    abbr[title], acronym[title] {
      border-bottom: dotted 1px;
    }
    If you want to see the whole file you can find it the mozilla folder on your pc.
    \Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\res\

    Thanks!


    Thanks,
    i've experimented a bit with the css for how the acronyms display & have a much better understanding now.

    What would newbies to this do without forums!?

    Well, I'd have a bigger house, a nicer car, and a bit of eye candy on my arm due to all the fees for fixing broken pages.

    Help forums! Bah! Humbug!

    cheers,

    There are those who manage to build a web site without knowing what they're doing; thereby proving to themselves they do, indeed, know what they're doing.
