Hey John, wow that is too weird. I swear I dropped the code in at W3 (DIRECT INPUT) and it validated.
Er, anyhoo . . . It validates as Transitional (or at least, it did just 2 minutes ago :p).
I'll hop on over to your upload link John, but the issue continues to be that DOLPHIN will not shrink beyond a certain point. And believe me, I've tweaked it using ever trick I could think of. I thought that by defining MARGINS right at the outset, the DIVs would have to honor the settings.
The only other thing I can think of is OVERFLOW, but if you think I'm an amateur thus far, OVERFLOW is a mystery to me.
Look, if this DOLPHIN thing is just Mission Impossible, so be it. I only want to understand why it is physically impossible to do. It's very frustrating not knowing what's blocking this.
The other two tweaks relate to your (or Ronpat's ?) comments, namely: 1) Defining CSS styles formally (as opposed to inline) to discipline DOLPHIN, and 2) starting small . . . and then building each element up.
I'll commence that last technique right now by starting just with DOLPHIN, and adding each additional (major) image block, one at a time.
If however what I'm trying to accomplish simply cannot be done, I would greatly appreciate someone explaining why so I don't continue to waste time on this.
