    Can some simple HTML like this be copyrighted? I have a similar idea using code like this and was wondering if anyone could claim copyright to something like this. My guess is NO, but I thought I'd ask the experts.

    Thanks



    @charset "UTF-8";
    /* CSS Document */

    body {
    font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size:10px;
    line-height:18px;
    }



    #wrapper {
    width:520px;
    margin:0 auto; border:0; padding:0;
    position:relative;
    }
    #non-fans {
    width:520px;
    position:absolute; top:0; left:0;
    }



    .textmodule {
    font-family:Tahoma
    font-size:14px;
    line-height:24px;
    }

    It's not HTML, it's CSS.

    And no - that snippet can not be copyrighted.

    You might want to rename textmodule and non-fans to something else, though.
