I'm having trouble using hex codes in my myspace CSS style sheets. When I enter the hex # (example "color: #99FF33") then save, the text i've entered is somehow automatically changed to "color: #99FF33" and the color remains unchanged. What is causing this? Is there a work around?

HTML / CSS Gurus. I have a TABLE with a bunch of dynamic columns. The table may have 4, 7, or 20 columns. Each table column HEADER ( TH tag ) contains two inline elements, 1) a tiny image icon for sorting, and 2) a column description in text. I would like these two elements to sit next to each other and NEVER ON SEPARATE LINES, essentially putting them into an inline-block. Unfortunately, if the text in the corresponding TD tags are below a certain width, the browser will force the width of the column, and subsequently force the two inline elements of the TH onto two different lines. How can I prevent this from happening in IE & Firefox without explicitly declaring the width of the columns. I have to use a IMG element for my icons, and not a css background-image.

I set up a div with the overflow:hidden attribute and several anchors to jump down to different elements. In safari, this approach isn't working.

Help explain how a hacker could perform a XSS exploit. This article explains how a bad-guy could send a malicious query through an unvalidated searchbox and essentially modify the html on the search results page. What I don't understand is how the hacker could have this malicious code display on a page that I am browsing. Except for unvalidated forum posts, how can a hacker inject malicious code into a webpage. If I ensure that my forum posts don't allow HTML and I am not loading external js files, what do I have to worry about?

I have found it impossible to grasp the concept of CSS. A friend taught me to hand code HTML, then I taught myself how to use Dreamweaver. I love HTML and design nice looking sites that are full of tables, repeated font tags, etc. I really want and need to move on. I want to learn CSS, but it just does not sink into my pea-brain. I've tried various online tutorials but just can't stay interested, mainly because I get lost pretty quickly into the tutorial. Certainly it can't be that difficult, what can I do to make this easier for me to absorb?

Fluid CSS Filter: I am looking for examples of a two column Web page with a fluid main column on the left and a rigid width sidebar on the right.
