Is it possible to change the title bar background and the font style on default template?

  

Hello,

Is there any way to change the default top link /title bar picture and the fonts of the title without breaking anything in the layout/structure?

I have changed the theme to Obsedian and I would also like to change the picture of the title bar of this theme and also the font/style of the title, top link bar, menus..etc. Is there a way to do this?

Please note: I am using WSS 3.0 and I am not the Administrator of the sharepoint. I am only the site admin of some sites on this sharepoint. I can do some basic customization using SPD.

Basically, what I am trying to do is that I want to set up a sharepoint site, however I want to make it NOT look like a sharepoint site.Well I know this is possible, but for my case it might be just partially possible due to the limitation that I am not the Site collection admin and hence I do not have direct access to the server itself.

What I want is to hide most of the sharepoint links/menus/bars, etc and use my own buttons/hyperlinks etc .. for user to navigate on the sites.

Thanks in advance for your help/advices.

Regards

Rooven

Trouble with Font Definition in Accordion Control

  

 VWD 2008 Express.

I have a page on which I have an accordion control.  The accordion control seems to be overriding the font definition I have for the page body in my CSS stylesheet.  Here is what is happening.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.

1.  When I open the page and the top panel opens, it displays with the correct font family, size, etc.

2.  If I close and reopen the top panel, it displays with another font family and looks bad.

3.  All subsequent panels, when opened, display the font in a different family than specified in my CSS stylesheet.

This is what I have in the stylesheet both for the body and for the .accordioncontent:

body
{
    background-color: #E4E1C2;
    background: url(../images/background.jpg) repeat left top;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman" , Times, serif;
    color: #666666;
    font-size: 12pt;
}
.accordionContent
{
    border-top: none;
    padding-top: 10px;
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman" , Times, serif;
    color: #666666;
    font-size: 12pt;
}

CSS font is working in FireFox but not in Internet Explorer 8.0

  
Hi All, I tried a lot but I could not figure out why the IE is not taking font size and name in to effect from CSS. In firefox my website could be seen very nice but in IE it is little bit unshiny and font size is bigger For the difference which I am talking about could be seen  if your PC have both firefox and IE installed. Please go to http://www.nymidtowndentistry.com open it in FF and IE and you could see the font and alignment related change. All these settings are in body element of CSS. Do you any idea regarding this? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for your time. -Hitesh

asp:textbox not showing monospaced font as monospaced

  
Hi,I'm using the following asp:textbox code (listed below).  I want it to display a monospace font (courier new).  Instead, it does variabel space font.  I know this because one instance of the page I counted off the following test text: "Now is the winter of our discontent made summer by this".  This is one line, 55 characters.  Next, I typed the following string of numbers 12345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567 (47 characters).  It took up the same amount of space in the box.I've tried serveral monospaced fonts with the same effect: Courier, Monospace, and a few others.<asp:textbox ID="reBody" Text='<%# Bind( "message" ) %>' runat="server"                                              EditModes="Design"                                             style="font-family:Courier New;   font-size:10pt"                         &nbs

DatePicker calendar font size

  
Due to the fact that we have globally changed the TextBlock size, the DatePicker calendar does not display properly. The month at the top is too big and is getting cut off.   Is there a way to either override the font  size for the DatePicker to have its normal size or to directly set the size through a style? I tried this:   <Style TargetType="{x:Type CalendarItem}">     <Setter Property="TextElement.FontSize" Value="10"/> </Style>   But it didn't work. I could override the entire CalendarItem template but I'd rather not.

Font on Page Becomes Bold After Javascript Alert -- Why?

  
In .Net 3.5   I have a web page that has several checkboxes, text boxes, dropdown boxes etc on it.  When a user clicks on the search button, I run some basic validation on the page. If any validation fails, I invoke a javascript alert letting them know what they did wrong and I return them to the page. However, when the page reloads, all of the text on the page is now larger and bold, even the text inside the menu and which resides in a master page.  I removed every instance of the word "bold" from the project but it still becomes bold after the alert fires. Any idea what could be causing this to happen?  It shouldnt matter but here is a sample of the alert I use: Response.Write("<script language='javascript'>alert('You must check at least one column to display');</script>") Any help is greatly appreciated. thanks

I installed .net FrameWork 4.0 (for Vista/Windows 7) and my Desktop Font is BOLD! (sometimes)

  
So at first, I installed the below: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9cfb2d51-5ff4-4491-b0e5-b386f32c0992&displaylang=en Which is .net framework 4 (web installer), then I believe I tried the standalone. But then after I did the Redistributable 2.0 installer for Windows XP SP2, but I have SP3, does that just mean its included already? (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=0856EACB-4362-4B0D-8EDD-AAB15C5E04F5&displaylang=en)   My friend told me I needed this before I install Office 2010... I dont know!! So after I installed these different .net frameworks and then office. I have Mozilla crashing me, I disabled the framework assistant plug-in and still happens. Then, my FONT for desktop and start menu icons turns (larger/bold) but not within folders, only what shows without clicking into anything.... so.. 1.System Restore is not an option, that restore point is overwritten now... 2. This is not an appearance tab/settings issue with a larger DPI set or anything like that... Because, sometimes I click on my computer to restart and the font is all fine and will continue to be, othertimes, some program or something causes this to happen, I restart the PC and then its fine again... Can anyone tell me what I did wrong and how to fix it, easily.. if possible :) I have searched all over and while I've noticed people with simila

changing font color on a data column field based on the contents

  
I am trying to change font color if the datafield has the string EMERGENCY.
