    The problem is in the border. In mozilla it appears perfectly. But in chrome, there is some problem in height. Can you please help me in correcting the code and make it fit on both the browsers. I mean the border should correctly cover the banner in both the browsers. Help me, pls.

  28. Robin Hood says:

    Do you need the code for that widget. I mentioned the code in the above comment, but your site rejected the tags and put the words only. If you need the tag, how can I send it…
