Help with Web Page - embedded player

I'm building a site to sell a DVD and using the hosting service's on-line web site builder, to take advantage of design templates beyond my poor HTML skills. I have access to it also by FTP and in order to embed a wm player for the trailer I pulled down the page, added the code and put it back. It seems to work fine, but there is a rectangle of dotted lines surrounding the player, and I didn't put them there. The site uses CSS and I don't speak it, so if it's coming from some set of parameters therein I wouldn't know. Can anyone give me advice on getting rid of it, the dotted rectangle that is?

Thanks,

David Hurdon

I didn't have time to find out which one of your three stylesheets has it but you are looking for the class "note" which is the container for your video.

Do a search in your files for

.note

and you should find it.

When you find where that "note" is, take out or comment out any line that refers to "border".

Save that stylesheet and upload it.

That did it! The note entry was actually in the html document for the page itself, rather than in the css files, and it was set to "0", but eliminating it made the line disappear. Thanks again, Keith.

david, the class id specified on that video page is the old one... this page has the latest class id on it: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...inawebpage.asp

you should also make sure that the width and height specs listed are correct, and that it works in firefox, if possible.

Yep, for HTML code, an image's border is defined in the img src string as border=0 for no border and any numer higher than zero for different size borders. You can find more information about embedded players and much more coding at the link below.
