Now we are going to create the CSS rules for the information that goes inside of this .city_detail. So let's come over to our CSS panel. Let's create a new rule. New class. This one is going to be called city photo, .city_photo. Let's click OK. Next, let's go down to the Box settings. Under Float, let's set a float-left. Under Margin, uncheck Same for all. We are going to set 0 on the Top, 15 on the Right, 0 on the Bottom, 0 on the Left.
Let's come over to our Border settings. For Same for all, we are going to click solid, 1 pixel, choose white, click OK. Let's create one more CSS rule, Class, .city_info. Underscore info. Let's click OK. Box property is here. We are going to set a Width of 130 pixels, and we are going to set a float-left on this as well.
Then we are going to say OK. I am going to get my cursor inside of this .city_detail div. Let's delete some of this default text first. I'll leave one letter there, just to make sure my cursor can still be inside of this area. From the Insert menu, let's switch over to the Common group. Let's come over to Image. Let's click to insert an Image. From the Desktop, myInteractiveMap/images/ cities, and let's just pick the first one. Click Choose. We're going to skip the Alternate text for now. Click OK.
Now with this item selected, down in the Properties panel, let's come down to the Class settings and let's assign city_photo as the class. Let's deselect that. Make sure my cursor is inside of city_detail. Let's come up to the Layout items inside of the Insert panel. Let's come over to Insert a Div. We are going to insert city_info and click OK. Now if your cursor was not after the image tag here, we can simply grab this and drag the image so that it's in front of the city_info. Then also, let's get rid of that last letter that we had inside of the area.
Now we do need to add one more piece of code into here, but we need to do this inside of Code view. So let's come over to Code. Now inside of this city_detail, we have our image and our city_info. I am going to just format this a little bit. Now what we want to do is add that clear_both div after both of these items, since city_info and city_photo classes are floating. So let's get our cursor after the city_info div. Let's hit a Return. Let's type div, space, type cl for class. Dreamweaver's code hinting work again.
I can hit Return, and then I can even use Dreamweaver's code hinting to pick the actual class we want to assign. So I am going to come down here and select clear_both, end the tag, hit a forward slash, and end the rest of the div tag. So now what this is going to do is this is going to force the height of city_detail to be as tall as the city_photo class and the city_info class, and this will ensure that the border that we put around on city_detail will be as tall as all the items inside.
Since they are floating, the outermost container will not pay attention to the overall height, unless we have an element in here with a clear_both set to it. Let's come to the Design view, and now that we have these city_detail divs in place, in the next movie we'll start by adding some content into here and create some CSS styling for those.
