My site (http://www.aaronapter.com) looks completely different on my computer than when I view it on another computer. It actually looks like my browser is accessing the files from my HD instead of the internet. Any ideas why? I ask because I want to fix some errors on my published site, such as a fonts appearing differently and the spacing of a page being totally messed up. Again, this doesn't happen when I view it on my computer, but it does on others. Any help? I'm using OSX 10.5.8 and iWeb 08 on a 2.4ghz core 2 duo Mac Book.

Might be a cache issue in the browser using older versions of your site files. Also could because you're using a different browser on the other machine.

I've cleared out the cache and have viewed the website in multiple browsers to no avail.

Maybe some screen shots showing the differences would help. There's not much to go on currently. From the source code it doesn't look like any paths are looking for something locally on a machine. Do you have any extensions on your browser that may be causing issues?

Just out of curiosity, when you got to http://www.aaronapter.com/aaronapter/Tool_Box.html

Is this what you see?

Almost. The header fonts are different. Attaching what I see with Firefox 3.6 on XP. What's like happening is that it's using a font that some computers don't have, in which case it tries a different one. Here is the font CSS for the AaronApter.com text in the header.

font-family:'zArista','[z] Arista','Verdana',sans-serif;
Most computers likely don't have the font zArista or [z] Arista so use Verdana instead, which is the font my machine seems to be using for it.
