Hi John, I'm actually seeing your footer. Though, I will say it appears a Google plugin is causing the last part to appear/render strangely. For the second item: That's just a CSS style. If you would like to change it so that only the first letter is capitalized, please add this to Custom Code->CSS:

#nav ul li a{text-transform:capitalize;}

Well for one I wouldn't recommend adding the font face rule to the navigation items that way. Also, try running through a validator to see if there is missing markup in the footer somwhere. validator.w3.org

hi adam, thanks for your reply; could it hurt me to put 'raw' html such as that 'font face' command into my code? I guess it all needs to be done in CSS these days. I am considering buying http://www.skybound.ca/ a program called Stylizer to help me with this CSS. IS this a good idea do you think? also, here is the bbc page with the 'flash' outlined.... or is it something else ? http://www.lunarmeteoritestore.com/bbcflash.png also I would like to put an advertising banner in my header, just like the bbc does; how can I access my header image please ? thanks, john

Have you considered using Firebug? It doesn't do the CSS for you, but it's free and it helps you figure out the CSS customization you want to do. A tutorial on how it use it is here: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/customization#101 and you can download it for Firefox here: http://getfirebug.com/
here is the bbc page with the 'flash' outlined.... or is it something else ?
I looked at their source code and it appears to be a carousel that they're using, so it isn't Flash.
also I would like to put an advertising banner in my header, just like the bbc does; how can I access my header image please ?
A hook can be used to add a banner to your header. If you're not familiar with hooks yet, see here: http://www.pagelines.com/docs/base-child-theme If hook implementation isn't clear to you, we can help you with that.

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.
