I promise I'm leaving home for a while so you won't hear from me for a few hours :-/
I still am working on this show/hide text thing, but now, I want to show/hide a different area of text with a second button, so I had to give a new class to the first button that I created so that the section shown/hidden/ is different for the new button. Hope that makes sense.
Anyway, if I get rid of the "button" class and assign it a new class (which seems to be the only way to fix the problem), all formatting goes away, which is fine. I begin reformatting the button, but when I put in a background color, it is only going behind the text, not filling the entire button "rectangle" that I envision in my head.
I had this problem with the first button, and I clicked something and it went away, however, if I try to apply a shadow to the entire button, it only shadows the area behind the text, not the entire rectangle. I added a color change on hover, and for a spit second, you can see that the color behind the text doesn't change as quickly - even in the browser.
I am now trying to create the second button and no matter what I do, I am having this formatting issue - everything applies only to the space behind the text. This time, my clicking is to no avail. All settings for both buttons appear to be the same, and I don't understand why the editor isn't treating the whole area background.
sigh you guys will be happy when I'm done with this site!
Thanks in advance.
