  • Ok… so it’s no drama of course to stick a background behind a section of text. We all know that! 🙂 However, perhaps I’m not taking the right approach in skinning this cat!

    Look at my post you can get the idea of what I’m trying to do. Sticking a set of open quotes and I want it to sit to the left of the text, with a slight overlap.

    Anyone got a suggestion on this one? Thanks.

  • Try:

    text-indent: (width of your quote image + space)

    From there play with your margins and padding to achieve your desired look.

    I may be incorrect, but I believe this is the way to achieve what you’re after.

    Ahh, text-indent will work for the first line (see link for what I’ve done for now). However I’d like to indent the whole block.

    Try playing with the blockquote padding then.


    Bingo… Duh! 🙂 Thanks.
