What are Style Brackets?

7 Comments

I have been using the term “Style Brackets” here, and a few people have had questions as to what they are…

They look like this
<style type=”text/css”>
</style>

The reason I havent been using them is because when I write them in wordpress, they don’t work when you paste them into myspace for some reason.
I use the method I outlined here to make the chevrons: https://justsayyes.wordpress.com/2007/05/03/how-do-i-put-a-in-wordpress/
but those apparently arent actual brackets – css doesnt like it.

So my suggestion is to use ones you already have or type them in manually.

If anyone has a solution to this, it would be much appreciated

Thanks~

***UPDATE: I was daydreaming and found a great solution for this… Being a huge fan of the Notepad program, I was thinking that I would just create a text file with the exact code, and upload it to the post. This way the users can go directly to the code without dealing with the formatting. Straight code – no BS : Notepad.
So thats what I will be doing for now on. Thanks again, Notepad.

UPDATE: WE JUST MADE A WALKTRHOUGH VIDEO TO GO WITH THIS PAGE cHECK IT OUT HERE:

How do you change the color of your font in myspace?
This is an easy question, but it can get complicated.

Before we actually start, lets pick a color. Keep that number ready.

Now…
When typing text in a comment or in just one field or table, and you only are concerned with that individual field, you can use this code:

<font color=”color_code”> YOUR TEXT HERE </font>

and to change the size also, use this:
<font color=”color_code” face=”font style” size=”number value from 1 to 7″> your text here </font>

If you want to change individual parts of your profile, everything is laid out very well in this guys guide on myspace
http://www.myspace.com/colorguide.

The most basic of what you want to create is:

td, a, body, table,p { color:XXXXX;}

put that in your profile and you will change the color of most of the text.
