Corners aren’t showing up or not working right!

  • # June 16, 2009 at 10:20 am

    I have recently been working on and have some issues… I am trying to round my corners on just the main top body area first, and then I will do it on the other sections, but I can’t get it to work properly.

    I have been following Chris’ rounded corners video, and I’m trying to use the 2nd option, because I don’t want my corners disabled if someone doesn’t use allow JavaScirpt on their browser.

    Anyway, the bottom right and left corners show up, but they aren’t hiding the background behind them (the square corners). The top left and right corners are in my code, but aren’t showing up on the page – I have no idea why…

    Please take a look at and you’ll see what I mean. Here’s the code:

    I fixed it – I found out that I had accidentally put "insdie" instead on "inside" on two of the four corners, so either the top worked with "inside", or the bottom worked with "insdie" – I worked it out :)
