A 'safe' (only?) way to place img/nav on an img?

  rolmes 16:31 18 Jul 06

I have found a way to place an image and my navigation text on top of another image without making the image a background image - i dont want it as a background because i dont want it to repeat on large screens. However, the only way i have found is to put the code for the upper image and navigation text OUTSIDE of the html tags i.e. after the closing html tag. Is this ok to do? or will the site look a mess in different browsers? it works fine in mine (internet explorer). Alternatively, does anyone know of a 'safer' way to do this? Sorry i cant provide a link to the site as it isn't live yet.

If you design websites even as a hobby, you should always have as many browsers as possible installed on your PCs. Then you can check such things.

I very much doubt if your site will validate, though that may not matter to you *if* it works.

I am in the process of getting more browsers installed, but for now would just like to know if it is safe to do the above as it WORKS on my browser. What do you mean by 'validate'?

Do you not validate your code at all?

Did you not look at any of those links?!

Validation is a method of assessing the accuracy of code - HMTL, XHMTL, CSS; they can all be validated.
