Hi,

I'm having a problem with absolute positioning on http://www.adarktree.com. I want the horizontal shadow to come after the navigation (four left floated divs, with magenta bullets) in the artwork, poetry, and nonsense pages. But in some browsers it seems to not recognize the navigation and comes right after the cyan header.

I've only tested on Safari and Firefox on a mac, IE (not sure which version) on a PC.. Seems to only work on Safari. :/

Here's a screenshot of what it should look like: http://www.adarktree.com/v6screen.jpg

Is the background image too dark?

Also, there's a weird validation problem going on in the nonsense page that I can't figure out.

Any insights?

absolute positioning, etc

:? All I see is some text on a black background.

"is the background image too dark?" you ask; how much darker than black can you get?

What are we supposed to be looking for/at?

Validation? the nonsense page passes both html and CSS validation what do you see as a problem? if it's the background colors ignore it but have a check through the WCAG accessibility guidelines as to why it's mentioned and /or search this forum as the topic has been covered many times.

I fixed the validation problem in the nonsense page, nevermind.

The background is not black. There is a background image, but I think for some monitors it may appear to be black. I made it lighter, now can you see?

Should now look like: http://www.adarktree.com/dtv6screen.jpg
But I think there are problems with the placement of the shadow (if you can see it now). It should come after the bulleted nav.

Thanks.
