|Killing Unique IDs Globally with CSS|
Form programmers generate IDs. I want to kill them, the IDs, that is...
| 4:50 pm on Mar 29, 2011 (gmt 0)|
I work on a site that generates unique IDs for a given form element every time I build a new form.
For example, there are these date pickers inside a cell inside a row with the IDs tr_range123 or tr_range456, etc.
I want to kill these date pickers but the only way to do it is apply display:none; to these IDs ... Is there any way to apply styles to all these IDs -- past, present and future?
Is there something like that out there? I've heard of CSS variables but I think it's different. Also, I need something that's pretty browser-friendly.

Do they also have a class, or are contained by something else regularly? You probably already thought of that . . .

Unfortunately, no classes and no other inheritance options without breaking stuff, most likely. Thanks, though. I guess that's a 'no' on wildcards.

Hi mrjohncory, what browser versions are you supporting? If not ie6, then the css3 substring attribute selector should do it.
Something like tr[id^=tr_range]

Wow, that is exactly what I was hoping for and scary powerful. Thanks!
