I think I found some JBIDE reports on this:
and a couple others with similar types of problems.
It's strange that it works fine on my Linux box, but not on a Windows box.
I hope we'll get a fix for this stuff soon because it's a major problem for visual design.
Any word on a fix for this? This is a critically bad bug for our designer, because he needs to position text over images correctly. Right now, he's doing that part of the design in DW and pasting it over. That is not a good development process.
When is a fixed version of WTP coming out?
This is most likely an issue in the VPE editor, it is targeted for 2.2.x at the moment.
Thanks for the answer. It looks like there is a smaller bug in 2.01 which caused in-line styles to fail. According to Andrei it's fixed in JBossTools-2.1.0.Beta1-ALL-win32. If you could let me know where I could download that, I'll give it a try.
The external CSS linked image bug may be a different thing; we'll certainly be trying 2.2 as soon as it comes out.
