    Reply to Japan scraps Olympic logo over plagiarism allegation

    I don't understand, plagiarism aside, how someone could design a logo knowing that it would be published to the world and think "I'll just copy this design over here, no one will notice..."...

    From google's website: To me, that's a different approach to logos than I've seen in the past where the goal was to create something timeless and long-lasting. The fact that they're announcing to everyone...

    I had a client who had two addresses on his business cards and letterhead, but just one on the envelopes. I'd think he would want just one return address on the envelopes so that he can control where...

    Yeah, it's kind of a weird question that no one can really answer with specificity. If it was me, I'd move to or near a small-to-medium-size beach resort town, preferably on the West coast. There is always...

  • Text not visable from a PC

    I'm working on a mac using firefox and have used the z-index function in dreamweaver to layer between flash objects and dreamweaver text.
    Now that I've uploaded the site, the text isn't visable from a PC. Although it is visable from a Mac.
    When viewing on a PC, the text flashes up for a milisecond on some pages and then disappears.

    Does anyone have any idea why this is??

    Different browsers is the most obvious reason but it could be a handful of things. We need the script/code to analyze the problem or a link would be helpful.

      Well we've tried viewing the website in both safari and firefox on the Mac and it worked fine, and tried viewing it using firefox on the PC and it doesn't work. :S

      which part of the script or code do you need???
      would one page be enough?

      and the website is www.placeyoursite.co.uk

      I think it may have something to do with the z-index feature, as there is a page with flash layered on flash in dreamweaver. and the flash layer that is layered on top, isn't displaying properly.

      Thanks, Tom

        I'm looking at it from a pc and I'm not sure which text you're referring to. Can you be more specific? Let's focus on one page that has the problem and one page that does not. Then we can compare the two.

          Sorry yeah i didn't think of that haha. well every page has the problem.
          All of the text you can see is flash text. It's the main body text that isn't viewable.
          In the middle of every page there's a big white box, this is where the dreamweaver text should be visable. But it's not.
          If that makes sense?

            Oh lol! I think this should help.

            You need the right syntax!

              One more thing, try to change your text class to position: relative. I think your text might be hidden under the object.

                  I've just tried using the 'transitional' syntax. but it didn't work. The problem is still occurring.
                  Is that the right syntax to be using?

                    I think you need to put wmode="opaque" somewhere
