    What question marks?

    The menu side of my webpage looks like this:


    ? December 2004


    ? General (3)



    ? Site Admin
    ? Logout
    ? Valid XHTML
    ? XFN
    ? WordPress

    I thought the ? was a graphic but I can’t seem to be able to find the file location in order to remove them

    I just checked my website again.

    The question marks do not appear in my Internet Explorer browser – but they do appear in my Firefox browser.

    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before {
    content: "� ";

    This is the relevant section in the CSS which is giving you the grief.

    Thanks Moose – I’ll check it out

    Did you get my email about the plug-in ??

    It looks like you have a <li> tag inside another set of <li> tags, starting at Archives and going down the whole right side menu. It shows up fine in IE because IE tends not to care about proper HTML syntax, while Mozilla/Firefox is a tad stricter.

    I had FF running in quirks mode, so it was automatically correcting. But, when I switched it over to compliance mode, I saw what you were talking about. NM has you on the right track.

    Captain Science, he has no rogue <li> tags. His syntax is using proper nesting and that is how all WordPress templates handle the sidebar.

    I checked the style sheet that I was working on – and it said this:

    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before {
    content: "» ";


    The original style file that was included in the 1.5beta1 zip file said this:
    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before {
    content: "0BB 020";

    Never saw this kind of value code before – and when I tried to copy and paste the content: “0BB 020”; code into the style file that I was working on the code pasted in as content: “» “; – weird !!

    So I typed in content: “0BB 020”; by hand, saved it, uploaded to the server – and still no change

    The question marks are still there.

    Seems like the Kubrick theme that is now included in the new 1.5 beta-1 version needs some tweaking – maybe someone in here can let the tech guys know

    Well I looked at it again – seems like Firefox will not accept the value in the content: “>> ” tag.

    So, I think I can either comment the whole thing out or find a .gif file and insert this in its place:

    .entry ul li:before, #sidebar ul ul li:before {
    content: url("");

    No, no, no. Not true. Take a look at my blog with FireFox.

    Yes, I see that macmanx – firefox obviously views it properly – but I see you are using ver 1.2.2 and probably an older version of Kubrick

    So that means the problem is either in the code for WordPress ver 1.5 beta 1 (Jan-2-2005) or its in the code for the Kubrick theme that is included with the new beta version – It looks like the included Kubric theme has been changed from Boren’s 130-rc2 version
