Style sheet questions
by Reilly Burke, posted on 11:56 PM, December 2, 2007
My WebWare editor has a drop-down list of text attributes that can be attached to text in the editor, eg: Paragraph,H1,H2. These should be interpreted by the style-sheet when viewed in a browser, but this doesn't work on my pages. Am I doing this correctly? My pages don't seem to be in touch with the style sheet at all. Am I seeing/editing the correct style sheet?

Also, the editor drop-down list doesn't match the style sheet tags. Is there any way that the drop-down list can reflect what's in the style sheet?

    Make sure of the following:

    1. you are publishing your style sheet changes. ExSite preferentially takes the published version of a stylesheet when doing normal page previews. Your browser may also cache the previous stylesheet, so try a hard refresh.

    2. your page is using the correct template. Sometimes you will be editing template A, but previewing a page that uses template B.

    No, not easily. The content and style are completely separated. Even if it were easy, it would bring its own set of problems--adding stylesheet-specific tags would tie the content to a particular stylesheet, removing the separation of content and design that is a basic design goal of the system.
