HTML: Tournament Brackets

There’s a lack of HTML code for tournament brackets out there that don’t use tables, so I decided to go ahead and create some. I have tested this across all major browsers. To get an idea of how it works, start with the 4 player tournament, as it does get a little messy when you reach 32 players.

Free to use/steal/copy.

I’ve been looking long for such a thing, but I don’t understand the source: How come round1-top has a right and bottom border in CSS, but only the bottom border is displayed?

What’s the best way to change the 8-team tournament to percentages instead of pixels?

I know this may sound dumb but the code is not showing up as a bracket for me. Is there something that I am not doing correct?

I noticed that when I shortened my screen that the 16 jumbled up pretty bad. I corrected it by taking 10px off of each of the widths. I also took the font size down a bit, but I’m not sure that mattered. It can shrink to any size now. :) Thanks a ton!

Is there a way to get 6 team brackets somehow?

Ken on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 (2:29PM)

What about displaying from the right side.
for example lets say I have 8 competitors, I would see 4 on the right and 4 on the left?

Simple and solid. Exactly what I needed for my current project; thanks so much for sharing!
