Hi Flynn -
I got inspired tonight and transferred my third site to WordPress with Atahualpa. This is just a 5 page promo for a product we sell, mainly with simple text and images. I used the Embed-It plug-in to successfully put in a Flash object with testimonial comments cycling continuously. For those of you who don't know this one, it allows you to take code snippets that sometimes get messed up by WordPress as you switch from HTML mode to Visual editing mode, and embed them in Custom Fields, then place them safely into your page by typing a simple code such as [HTML1].
Now, here's my question. I have a few tables to help arrange text and graphics better than is possible with simple Align tags. In one case, I have two text blocks side by side, and I want to separate them visually. In my previous site, I made the background color for that cell a light grey, which made it stand out. I tried various code words in the HTML for the table cell, but it stubbornly refused to change from a white background. I even tried to made a border around the cell, but it didn't show. I can make a border around the table itself, but not just one cell.
I'm sure that there is some option somewhere in the Atahualpa settings, or possibly in some CSS code that is getting in the way. If it would help to look at the site, please visit the main page of www.archicadtemplate.com and look at the table midway down the page with the text block saying FREE INTRODUCTORY WEBCAST. That's the cell I'd like to color.
Your help is much appreciated.
