does word press change your files or something when you upload them?
Is there somewhere we could look at it after it's in wordpress?
Are you putting the styles right in the elements themselves or do you have it classed out? It's possible that the wordpress css is doing something to the elements that's causing your css not to work the way it normally would.
Typically what I do when I know css should be working is open up the page in the firebug (http://getfirebug.com/
) extension for firefox. You can "inspect" an element and it will show you exactly what css it's using and where it got that property (inherited from parent, a class, etc).
From the picture it almost looks like it could be a 'position' property problem, but it's hard to tell with css sometimes.
- Oh, great. You killed the invisible swordsman!
-- He's dead, all right.
--- How was I supposed to know where he was?
- You were supposed to fire up. _We_ both fired _up_.
