Weird Issue with CSS

Discussion in 'HTML & Website Design' started by quarinteen, Jan 25, 2017.

    Hello, I haven't done web design in years and i'm working on a project and ran into a weird CSS issue. I am hoping someone can assist with this. Below is the code. I am using MS Expression. When I save the page and open it with any browser, the first menu item is ok the second one is placed directly under the first and the third and forth are double spaced. Ill attach a screen shot as well. Thanks if you can help.

    <style>
    .dropdown {
    position: relative;
    display: inline-block;
    }
    SEMrush
    .dropdown-content {
    display: none;
    position: absolute;
    background-color: #8b8b8b;
    min-width: 200px;
    box-shadow: 0px 8px 16px 0px rgba(0,0,0,0.2);
    padding: 12px 16px;
    z-index: 1;
    }

    .dropdown:hover .dropdown-content {
    display: block;
    }
    </style>
    ==========================================================
    Here is the menu Items
    <div class="dropdown"> <span>Menu</span> <div class="dropdown-content"><p align="left">Item 1<br>Item 2</br><br>Item 3</br><br>Item 4</br></p></div></div> menu.png

    Apart from MS Expression, the problem is the double breaks after "Item2" and "Item3":
    <div class="dropdown"> <span>Menu</span> <div class="dropdown-content"><p align="left">Item 1<br>Item 2</br><br>Item 3</br><br>Item 4</br></p></div></div>
    Code (markup):

    Correct, but really you should dump MS Expression in the trash and learn to do it properly.

    I am retarded. It is Expression was telling me to close those tags. I didn't think you had to. Thanks I appreciate it.

    I am using it for the editor portion and other little tools. Its been a long time just need to get it done. Thanks for the suggestion though. That doesn't look right to me. They look too close not. Is there a better way these days to do a menu? Would a list work better?

    A menu is a list, by definition, so yes, that's how you should mark it up.

    If you have time for another questions here is the menu portion of it. DO you have any idea how to change the length so it doesnt span the entire width of the page. Also is there a way to add a background image to the main bar? I tried to add background: url("curveleft.png"); to the following
    It didnt work. Thanks if you have some more time to teach an idiot :)

    #cssmenu {
    height: 37px;
    display: block;
    border: 1px solid;
    border-radius: 5px;
    width: auto;
    border-color: #080808;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    background: url("curveleft.png");
    background-size: cover;
    }

    ============================================================================
    Main css
    #cssmenu,
    #cssmenu ul,
    #cssmenu li,
    #cssmenu a {

    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    }
    #cssmenu {

    What is that "curveleft" meant to do? Just make a curved border / wrapping for the list? And image would help there. Other news: in the edit-box on this page, there is a code-button (or, rather, there is an insert-button, where you can chose "code" - please, for the love of god, use it?). That CSS is a mess, and I'm pretty sure it can be condensed quite a bit - would you mind creating a jsfiddle or something like that? Makes it easier to edit and show the changes done...
