    I've come to the conclusion that most design instructors are just dabblers in the real world of design. When it comes right down to it, most are teachers, not professional designers.

    Are you charging money for your service and targeting certain sites?

    As for blogs, I wish there was a way to remove those from internet search...

    Ugh... Banded blue to white gradients. I'll give you hint on that. Illustrator and Indesign stink at gradient algorithms in certain colors. Create it in photoshop instead at the appropriate resolution....

    Thanks PrintDriver,

    I do plan on consulting with an attorney once I find one within my constrained budget. I'm in Canada if you can recommend a service - but that's off-topic so feel free...

  • Stupid IE and the <hr /> tag?

    Anybody know how to fix the "box" that IE puts around an HR element? I'm using CSS to apply a background image to a design and it works except for that. I've tried setting border: 0 and even applying the same color background to it that matches the color of the background behind it. No go. Any help? Thanks!

    hmm, I never had that problem. Could you screen shot for us?
    You could also use a div with a "border-bottom:" for css.

      I've got code to make a normal flat line.

      Using a background image is... tricky.

      The {color} property controls the rule's color in IE6/7. If your rule has any height to it, you will get a big thick line.

      I had this same problem this week, my final solution was to stick IE6 and 7 with a normal line by setting height to 0 and using padding to push out the background image so other browsers see it right.

      Most people just end up using a div. Sorry I couldnt be any more help. Fortunately IE8 fixes this nonsense.

        Thanks guys. I think for sake of having to reinvent the wheel, I'm just going to scratch the HR tag and go with the old DIV standby. Seems a little easier to make more cross-browser compliant. Thanks for the info guys!
