    Hey,

    I did a very quick placeholder page for my friend;

    www.dollshousepoker.com

    Basically, there is a problem when it is displayed on IE on a PC. The 'g' from 'girls' seems clipped at the bottom. This doesn't happen on other browsers on the PC, or Safari or Firefox on my mac. So it's something specific to a PC and IE, and I'm not sure why this is happening :rolleyes:

    If some of you more clever people could take a look at the source code and tell me the reason why the 'g' is being clipped.

    Thankyou!

    A screenshot and the page code (in the html code tags, ie. the <> button) would be preferable to just a link.

    I, for one, don't click unknown links if I can avoid it... paranoid, you say...? Maybe, but hey, better safe than sorry... ;)

    I don't have access to a PC to grab the screeny from IE atm, sorry.

    That's really odd. I don't have IE here, but I can see that it's just an image. The g cuts right to the bottom of the image, so perhaps try having more whitespace after the bottom of the g?

    A couple of "small" things for starters: You start the <table> tag before your <body> tag (and it's also missing the </body> tag). And the <style> tag should be in the <head> tag.

    It is odd... lol

    May I ask which browser you used? I tried both Safari and FireFox in OSX and it displayed correctly :S

    Lmao I didn't even look at that level - yes, that's pretty screwed.

    Displays correctly in Camino, by cuts to the bottom of the image I mean it's literally touching the edge of where the slice is.

    Why are you using 2 images instead of one? :confused:

    HTML:
    <img src="images/main_02.gif" alt="" width="641" height="119" border="0">
    <img src="images/main_03.gif" alt="" width="374" height="33" border="0">

    As I said, I did it very quickly - and I am still learning the html side of design, So I accept that there may be some problems here and there, that's why I've asked for some help.

    Thanks for spotting the tag thing, don't know why I did that - just one of those things that happened late at night after work lol

    No wait, just figured it out... One sec...

    edit: just fixed it. i hope - tell me if it isn't :)
