Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Styling Spry tabs, part of Dreamweaver: Layouts with CSS.
In the previous movie, we added the Spry Tabbed panels to the page and realized…that they were existing CSS rules for which we'd have to find a fix.…And now I'll show you a strategy for discovering what those are.…To do this, let's go into Current mode and I want to use one of Dreamweaver's…really powerful tools in conjunction with Live View, and that's Inspect mode.…So if I click on the Inspect here, when I hover over any of the various…elements, if I'm in Current mode, I'll be able to see exactly what's going on…with the existing rules.…
And I can see that here I have one rule for the mainContent li or list item that…is giving me an additional margin-bottom of 0.75em and we can test to see if…that is the issue by disabling the CSS property temporarily.…And in fact, that's it, so that's one of the two things that we'll need to change.…And I notice up here that there is the parent of the li which is the ul, and…that very likely is causing my tabbed panels' labels to move over to the right…
