    Hi all,

    I’m having an issue where I need to be able to have a title (inside a background box) appear over a line. I used an

    tag as the line and absolute positioned it to go into the middle of the boxed title. The only issue I’m having is, how do I have the title auto expand no matter how many words go into the title? (It all needs to be on one line).

    I’ve tried min-width: 200px or greater but for some reason the box overlaps the entire

    tag (100%) width.

    You can see my code here:

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance, Robert


    Wonderful! Thank you so very much!

    I guess I was missing the “display: inline…” part of it (which I haven’t gotten used to figuring out when to use it as much.

    Thank you again!
