Well I made a website with the stuff I know just to see if I can make a content and stuff, but I faced the problem that when I zoom in and out everything goes trough everything
Also when I try to set the navigator horizontal the same thing happens
I assume it has to do with the float and width and so but I have no idea on how to fix it
I have tried a lot of things
Here are the codes:

What's this all

What's this all about?

body
{
...
margin-left:500px;
margin-right:500px;
}
That's got to cause problems even on a 1920px width monitor (which has only about 1880px viewport width with browser maximized. Your h1 is 900px, plus body's 1000px worth of lateral margin, :shrug:.

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Fix

How do I fix this
And yea I earlier put 25% at the body for each side
But I late I put pixels to see if that would work but it didnt
Did you try zooming it in and out?
I want to find a way that everything zooms like h1 and the nav does
So it doesnt move to left or right when I zoom in or out
Basicaly I want to make the content a little like this

Study these suggested

Study these suggested changes. You add too many redundant properties. Only declare properties for which there is compelling reason.

body {
    background-color: beige;
    line-height: 1.5;
    margin: 0 auto;
    max-width: 1250px;
    min-width: 760px;
    width: 85%;
    }
 
h1 {
    background-color: black;
    border: 2px solid gray;
    color: white;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    text-transform: uppercase;
}
 
div.nav {}  <-- delete this element - ul is the proper container
 
ul.nav {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0;
    }
 
.nav li {}
 
div.content {
    border: 1px solid;
    overflow: auto;
    padding: 5px;
    }
 
div.left {
    border: 1px solid;
    float: left;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 230px;
    }
 
div.right {
    border: 1px solid;
    float: right;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 230px;
    }
 
div.rightbottom {  <-- this container should be a child of div.right
    border: 1px solid;
    margin-top: 10px;
    padding: 10px;
    }
 
div.center {
    border: 1px solid;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    }
 
div.centerbottom {  <-- this container should be a child of div.center
    border: 1px solid;
    margin: 10px 0;
    padding: 10px;
    }

Thanks

Thanks a lot this really helped!
But when I zoom in I still get the same problem kinda
It brings everything together in the content
Also when I display it as a block so I can add a background and width to the nav
It goes vertical and not horizontal
And how do I do the child thing?
Like this?
div.rightbottom:first-child

What do you expect to happen when you cause the page to be larger than the space available to hold it? Did you notice the limits placed on the width of body? That will cause scrolling when over-zoomed.

Not sure what you mean, here. Go back to my comment above.

Float the list items, or make them inline-block.

No, I mean the div should simply be nested within the .right div in the html markup. This is about grouping. You have the page as a whole. Within the page are two groups, the top banner that includes the heading and navigation, and a content group that contains three side by side column groups. Each column has its own context and children. Consider a chest of drawers. The drawers may be re-arranged in the chest; a given drawer may be moved to any of the slots without affecting what's in it, or what's within another drawer. Likewise, the contents of any drawer may be re-arranged or the contents changed without affecting any of the other drawers. If the drawers are sub-divided, those sub-divisions' content can be messed with without affecting anything else.

Fixed

Oh I found out how to do it
It was just this part:

#wrapper {
	width: 850px;
	margin-left: auto;
	margin-right: auto;

Thanks a lot you really helped me out
I just still dont exactly understand the child part sorry
Could you maybe give an example?
And I know I already did inline the list item and also tried float but
it somehow doesnt allow me to set the width of it
.nav li {
    display:inline;
    }

.nav a:link,a:visited {
    text-decoration:none;
	background-color:purple;
	width:120px;
	display:inline;
	color:yellow;

<ul class="nav">
<li><a href="#home">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="#forums">Forums</a></li>
<li><a href="#contact">Contact</a></li>
<li><a href="#donate">Donate</a></li>
</ul>

Sorry for troubling you

I'll try to cover all your

I'll try to cover all your questions.

Notice the example you ref'd has a #wrapper element to control the width. Since you didn't have that, I used the body element for that purpose. You may do either, but I prefer using an explicit wrapper.

Read the manual/instructions carefully; I said to use float or inline-block, not inline. Inline elements have neither width nor height (except for IE<8, which got things terribly wrong). Each has its own set of gotchas, so decide which you want, and we can deal with them.

Note the list structure: Each list item is a child of the ul. Each list item is a sibling to the other list items.

cheers,

gary

The inline-block thing worked

The inline-block thing worked now all I have to do with that is to set the width to the same as the others so it stays in the middle too and doesnt move to all the way left,but I didnt manage to do this.
Also I thought I understood and put "div.rightbottom" between the "div.right" tag in HTML but that didnt work either cause then it just goes inside of div.right
So I suppose I still didnt understand that part I am terribly sorry :/

CSS:

body {
    background-color: beige;
    line-height: 1.5;
    }
 
h1 {
    background-color: black;
    border: 2px solid gray;
    color: white;
    padding: 10px;
	width:850px;
	margin-top:0;
	margin-right:auto;
	margin-left:auto;
    text-align: center;
    text-transform: uppercase;
}
 
ul.nav {
    list-style-type: none;
    padding: 0;
	margin-left:auto;
	margin-right:auto;
    }
 
.nav li {
    display:inline-block;
    }
 
.nav a:link,a:visited {
    text-decoration:none;
	background-color:purple;
	width:120px;
	display:block;
	color:yellow;
    }
 
.nav a:hover,a:active {
    background-color:green;
    }
 
div.content {
    overflow: auto;
    margin-right:auto;
	margin-left:auto;
	width:850px;
    }
 
div.left {
    border: 1px solid;
    float: left;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 230px;
    }
 
div.right {
    border: 1px solid;
    float: right;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 230px;
    }
 
div.rightbottom {
    border: 1px solid;
    margin-top: 20px;
    padding: 10px;
    }
 
div.center {
    border: 1px solid;
    overflow: hidden;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    }
 
div.centerbottom {
    border: 1px solid;
    margin: 10px 0;
    padding: 10px;

Set the ul to {text-align: center;}, just as you would for any inline element.

That's where it belongs.

You're thinking in paste-up-for-print terms, or in table layout, everything-in-its-own-cell thinking.

Go back to my earlier post. Use the values I gave you and nothing more. We discussed the wrapper idea. You can either treat the body element as your wrapper, or better, in my opinion, use an explicit wrapper div around the whole page.

I thought the wrapper was in

I thought the wrapper was in my case the content
Would you mind telling me more about the wrapper?
How do I use it
Thanks for helping me so much btw you helped me a lot
The nav thing worked everything is fine now except for the wrapper thing
I dont really understand it yet
Edit:
Oh I guess I got it
I opened content right after body
And closed it right before /body
All I still dont understand is how to make the bottom right and left like on the other site I was looking at
Also when I set the background color it doesnt go all the way to the bottom
Just till the end of the bottom of the columns

Structure

Now you're cookin'. I suggest you wrap the three columns in a div and name it #content. Give it {overflow: hidden;}, nothing else needed. You'll understand why when you try to add a footer, for example. Rename the top level wrapper to um, #wrapper. Rename the left, center and right, etc. to reflect their content, not their positions. If you decide you want to swap column positions, you'll feel kinda silly having a right column named "left".

cheers,

gary

What you say you did doesn't

What you say you did doesn't match what I said you should do. Did you rename div.content to div#wrapper? Did you add a new element, div#content, as the parent to the three columns?

These miss-communications on yours and/or my part are the reason for posting the exact code for all changes.

Those last changes were not

Those last changes were not to alter the looks of the page. They were to change the html structure to more closely mirror the page's structure. The name changes were to provide a more semantic value to those tokens.

HTML is a declarative, structural markup language. Your markup should properly indicate the structure of the document. Likewise, the names (tokens) you give various elements, i.e. the class and id tokens, should reflect what the content of that element is, not its position or appearance.

You don't. The "right" div is

You don't. The "right" div is a container for all that belong in that column. Once you've established that context, you can further sub-group whatever is in the column, giving each its own styling if you want. Remember, you group from the top down. You started from the bottom up, in other words, backwards.

Yea thats what I mean
How do I add those sub-groups
I want the rightbottom colomn below right
But when I put rightbottom inside of right it shows it inside of it and if I put rightbottom below right in HTML it just centers it trough the whole content
What I want is this:
site1.png

But I instead have this now:
site2.png

So wrap that upper section in

So wrap that upper section in a div and put your border on it. Remove the border from #right.

Oh is this what you

Oh is this what you mean?

CSS:

div.right {
    float:right;
	margin-left:20px;
    } 
 
div.righttop {
    border: 1px solid;
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 230px;
    }
 
div.rightbottom {
    border: 1px solid;
    margin-top: 20px;
    padding: 10px;
    }

HTML:

<div class="right">
<div class="righttop">This text is styled with some of the text formatting properties. The heading uses the text-align, text-transform, and color properties.
The paragraph is indented, aligned, and the space between characters is specified. The underline is removed from the
<a target="_blank" href="tryit.asp?filename=trycss_text">"Try it yourself"</a> link.</div>
<div class="rightbottom">My Div Class is right</div>
</div>

It looks the way I want it im just not sure if I did it right so that I wont see unexpected things later
Also what should I do to shee the background of the content now from top to bottom?
Untitled3.png

If the only way is putting a footer
How do I put a footer?
float:bottom; doesnt exist right?

Pretty good. How many

Pretty good.

How many elements are you planning to be named .right? Just one? Use id, not class. There are reasons (that you haven't run into here) to support that.

Background? It looks to me like your background fills #content. Or, do you mean the whole browser viewport? If the latter, put the background on the body element.

Thats how it looks right now

Untitled4.png
Thats how it looks right now Tongue
Im now trying to learn some more CSS3 once I am done Ill start designing it and stuff Tongue
Thanks a lot without you I couldnt do it
But what I mean is the part marked in red
I suppose the only way to make that part colored too is using padding-top:(for example)200px; at #wrapper, or just add a footer
Well the first thing doesnt seem good to me lol
I have to add a footer at the end anyway but I have no idea on how to position it to the bottom
Oh and I dont know I could add a bottom right column later
But like I said earlier this is just to test my skills with HTML and CSS
I have been learning like a week or 2 straight
Learned HTML and CSS so far im still on a beginner level ofcourse but I hope itll improve with the time
My goal is to learn HTML,CSS,PHP and SQL for now
Once I have improved my skills in these I want to learn some more languages like Java, AJAX and .NET

Edit:

Sorry but I found out one more problem
I changed the border image but its not right on the edge of the column so when I try to change the background of the column this happens:
Untitled5.png

HTML:

<div id="left">
<div id="lefttop">
<div id="border"><p>This text is styled with some of the text formatting properties. The heading uses the text-align, text-transform, and color properties.
The paragraph is indented, aligned, and the space between characters is specified. The underline is removed from the
<a target="_blank" href="tryit.asp?filename=trycss_text">"Try it yourself"</a> link.</p>
</div>
</div>
</div>

CSS:

div#left { 
    float:left;
	overflow:hidden;
	background-color:gray;
    }
 
 div#lefttop {
    padding: 10px;
    text-align: center;
    width: 230px;
    }

You're thinking in print terms again. The web does not have a page size; it is not a piece of paper. I'll guess you have your browser maximized on a large monitor. Don't. Run your browser at a sane size (1024x768, 1280x1024 or even 800x600 at times) and you won't have all that excess space. If your buy yourself a larger desk, do you insist the your letter paper, memo pads, envelopes, etc. be enlarged too? A web page is what it is. That's why we have scrolling for longer pages and space for shorter ones. If your page lacks sufficient content, making the background stretch further won't make it any more full.

You don't. That's a print concept. I did a prototype about 6 years ago, "Footer at bottom of viewport". I don't suggest you try until you're much further advanced in your studies; by then you'll be too smart to want to use it. Laughing out loud

Quote:

Just add another block after the previous block in that column.

Be specific. Explain what happens, why it's wrong, and how it should be.

Well as you can see the color

Untitled5.png
Well as you can see the color goes outside of the border
I want the background color inside of the borders

Nice website btw
But I didnt quite understand it
Lets say I want to do it the way it is done on the website I am using as example
I supposed its locked to the bottom too
But how?
Its not like when I type
#footer
It gets to the bottom right?
And yea I understood the print part now lol never saw it that way
But still isnt there a way it gets to the bottom of the page no matter what the resolution is?

Where's the code? Did I miss it?

I posted it earlier so thought there wouldnt be need for it Tongue
But no you are right it actually doesnt look bad your site shows that you know enough about graphic design xD
But I still prefer to know how to put the border on the edge instead
I suck at graphic design lol thats why I always ask the opinion of other people for it xD

I haven't played with that

I haven't played with that property. From the example, shouldn't that be 27 rather than 30?

I recall there's an offset, or something, that can be applied.

Also, you're using the browser specific variations in the wrong order; do it like so:

#border {
  -moz-border-image:url(border.png) 30 30 30 30 stretch;
  -webkit-border-image:url(border.png) 30 30 stretch;
  border-image:url(border.png) 30 30 stretch;
  }
