@font-face is not working
I'm using a dw template (from adobe) to setup a new website I've been working on. I'm having difficulty changing the font for the navigation (formerly spry) I don't need the dropdown so i've removed all the js etc for that. All this has worked but the css for the navigation is not recognizing the @font-face that I've added. The font is available in the dw site so is there something i'm doing wrong with the css changes?? please review and advise - thanks!! I've pasted only the font area of the css file provided, let me know if more needs to be known to assist.
/* Menu items are a light gray block with padding and no text decoration */
font-family: 'Trading Post Bold';
src: url('fonts/Trading Post Bold-webfont.eot');
src: local('‚ò∫'), url('fonts/Trading Post Bold.woff') format('woff'), url('fonts/Trading Post Bold.ttf') format('truetype'), url('fonts/Trading Post Bold-webfont.svg#webfontHNAi9IoX') format('svg');
padding: 0.9em 0.75em;
font-family: 'Trading Post Bold', helvetica, sans-serif;
/* Menu items that have mouse over or focus have a blue background and white text */
ul.MenuBarHorizontal a:hover, ul.MenuBarHorizontal a:focus
/* Menu items that are open with submenus are set to MenuBarItemHover with a blue background and white text
I checked the w3c for validation and it failed. I could use some help understanding why THANKS!!
the validator says this is where the problem lies...
/* HACK FOR IE: to make sure the sub menus show above form controls, we underlay each submenu with an iframe */
filter: alpha (opacity: 0.1); (attempt to find semi colon before property name. add it), (parse error 0.1),
} (parse error })
UPDATE - I have all the errors correct except one - Parse Error opacity=10) Yes, I changed the number to a non-decimal in hopes that would fix it. Anyone??
