Hi

Im trying to put an image before or after a link to give my visitors the idea what is about, example yahoo, left column services.

My css
.ex{
background-image: url(images/ex.gif );
background-position: left;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
padding-left: 5px;}

my html
<div class="ex" title=""><a href="red-widgets/">Red widgets</a></div>

My problem is when i use it in the middle of a sentence it goes the next line after i close div instead keep going on same line

A
div
is a block-level element, so the browser is behaving correctly in this instance. If you want to have this occur inline, then you must use an inline-element such as a
span
, for example:

Some text<[b]span[/b] class="ex" title=""><a href="red-widgets/">Red widgets</a><[b]/span[/b]>some text.

Of course, it may not be necessary to add the extra

span
at all - have you tried applying the styles directly to the anchor itself?

Some text <a [b]class="ex"[/b] href="red-widgets/">Red widgets</a> some text.
