Croatian "sadrzaj" in English

What does the Croatian word "sadrzaj" mean in English?

It is used as an ID selector in an open source CMS template I am adapting:

#sadrzaj {
padding: 9px 4px 0 2px;
color: #303030;
width: 736px;

I've figured out all the other Croatian selectors (navigacija=navigation, etc.) but Googling various online dictionaries isn't turning anything up for "sadrzaj."

where does it fall in context? with that width, if it's an early element, i'd expect to be a parent container of some sort.

It's label in the left nav on this Microsoft page (google cache). If you can find the english analogue, you might be able to figure it out.

This page suggests it means "content"

contents/index. I just Googled and inferred.

I'd go with "contents." Do a Google image search for the word, and check out the results. Most of them appear to be table of contents pages (as in a magazine) or what appear to be menus.

Google image search turns up a few sign post pictures along with several pictures that would also suggest contents or index.

Or what Gator said.

It means content, or capacity.

The Croatian/English dictionary says

contents; substance; summary

Yeah, this online translator indicates that "contents" is indeed the answer.

The proper spelling appears to be "sadr┼żaj", which might explain why your searches didn't work.

Thanks, everyone. It's the parent container for the contents of the page. I'm just learning CSS, and trying to do it in Croatian is even harder.

Joleta, was it an oswd template? I remembered fiddling with a few templates by Solucija that contained that id name and just thought I'd mention that although oswd is temporarily (hopefully) down, the authors of those templates are still offering them on the site and there's a forum that looks helpful.
