Simple; parallel text.

Post by ℋunni on October 24th 2011, 9:42 am

Running: Invision

Question!
Seeing as how my wonderful memory isn't working right now, how can I make text parallel to one another. That is, placing some bullets on the left-hand side of a side and then added some bullets parallel to the left-hand side bullets on the right side.

- You could use a table, with 2 columns.
- You could make the two elements float:left ( or float right)
- You use the display:inline rule.

Lots of options.

I was never notified anyone responded </3

What would the easiest, most effective way be, LGforum?

You can basically do this,

•information. •information
•info. • info


And if not,

Were do you want this table at? Thread or CSS?

Depends on the use of course, its not always great to have lots of tables randomly on the page, not to mention the fuss of the HTML creating a table.
Personally i prefer making DIV with display:inline. Adding a some margin to it too and text-align:justified can make nice neat columns pretty much like newspapers.
Float:left is affective too but can run into problems if your not too sure on CSS.

Not really parallel text that now is it...
and since when do you make a table in the CSS, she wants it in HTML i believe.

It would be used on a template and it would involve HTML.
I'll actually try to div:inline and see how that turns out (also because I love justified text.)

Okay, let me know if you need more explanation of how to go about this.

Remember to set a common class to all the DIVs.
