Amaya-9.2.2 -Is it possible to set a background color to a paragr aph ?

EXT / TEAMLOG MELLERIN Pierrick

Hello,
 
I am testing Amaya-9.2.2 and I am encountering a little problem with paragraph's pseudo-class... When I want to apply my paragraph's pseudo-class (which has a specific background color like grey) to a paragraph by selected it and clicking on my pseudo-class (.code) in the "class palette", Amaya set a SPAN environment, so the background color is set only on the words selected and not to the entire paragraph...
 
More clearly :
 
My .css :
 
p.code {
 font-family: Courier New;
 font-size: 9 pt;
 text-align: left;
 background-color: #E1E1E1;
}
 
What Amaya is doing :
 
<p><span class="code">while (a < 10)...</span></p>
 
What I want :
 
<p class="code>while (a < 10)...</p>
 
Thanks in advance and best regards,

I guess you have not selected the <p> element, but its content, the character
string that is the child element of the paragraph. Amaya sets the class attribute
to the selected element. As it can't assign an attribute to a string, it creates a
<span> element for the selected string.

If you want to assign a class to the paragraph, just select the paragraph itself.
The simplest way is probably to hit the F2 key wich selects the parent element.
As a help for travelling the document tree, the status bar at the bottom of the
window displays the element that is currently selected with all its ancestors.

Hope this helps,

Vincent.
