    I would like to fix up my MySpace profile (don't even think about laughing), but I don't know what else to do. I just want to make it cool, easy to read, and something that describes me (aka Hitman). Some things still bother me though:

    1 - The profile runs very bad with CSS filters
    2 - The filters only work in IE
    3 - Cannot change the text color under the Contact Me area
    4 - How could I better optimize the background so that it fits all resolutions

    CSS code below:
    Code:
    <!-- START CSS -->
    
              <style type="text/css">
    
         TABLE, TABLE, TABLE 
         {
         border-color: 000000;
         border-width: 2px;
         border-style: solid;
         }
    
         TABLE, TD, TR
         {
         color: FFFFFF !important;
         font-family: Tahoma;
         font-size: 14px;
         font-weight: normal;
         background-color: transparent;
         border: none;
         filter: glow(color: 000000);
         }
    
         BODY
         {
         color: FFFFFF !important;
         font-family: Arial;
         background-color: 000000;

         }

         {

         }
    
              </style>

    You can't change the colour of the Links in the contact me area, because they're infact images, you could try setting up a iframe layer with a background colour and frame it using absolute positioning. There's not much you can do with using such a large image for the background, it's gonna tile, so your only option is making it a seamless tile and live with it. Filters only work in IE, it's a fact of life, and it sucks.

    Oh yeah, hahahahahahaha MySpace.

    Ok, WOW, I hate the way the profiles are designed by a stylesheet. Anyways, the part next to my picture has a 0% opacity, and it's basically a spacer. The part I'm talking about is between my picture and location information. So, how would I go about hiding it?

    Another problem is on the right column, where the TR and TD's aren't the same width as the table. See how the text and borders are off centered, even when I told them to center?

    Thanks to MySpace's stupid layout, I can't edit the source and make changes to it that way. But I don't know any other way to do it.

    Updated code:
    Code:
              <style type="text/css">
    
         TABLE, TD, TR
         {
         color: FFFFFF !important;
         font-family: Verdana, Tahoma;
         font-size: 14px;
         font-weight: normal;
         background-color: transparent;
         border: none;
         }
    
         BODY, LI
         {
         color: FFFFFF !important;
         font-family: Verdana, Tahoma;
         background-color: 000000;
         background-image: url(http://img38.exs.cx/img38/4520/mythical-wallpaper.jpg);
         background-attachment: fixed;
         background-position: center center;
         background-repeat: no-repeat;
         scrollbar-3dlight-color: 000000 !important;
         scrollbar-arrow-color: 000000 !important;

    Exact time spent on myspace due to boredom

    !!!! and the layout/syntax is just rediculous, doubt it is validated, and if it is... must have been some shady validator ( like a smog shop )...
