    Hi

    Having a few problems with my site - www.retouchartists.com - its not displaying in firefox properly... can you do me a favor 1)check it in all the browsers you own and 2) help me fix the problem..

    I cannot see anything wrong as it works in safari on mac and IE on the PC. I checked for target browser errors but there is only " non support of onclick"

    Same as CanadaRam for me, but using Firefox Mac. Am I right in thinking your images are positioned with a table? You've fixed the width at 800 pixels and specified a no-resize window for the page to load in. Have you also specified fixed-width table columns, or allowed the column widths to auto-resize?
    Playing around with spacer gifs might help. Also it might help to convert your table to layers. I've had similar problems, and the solution is often a horrible work-around cludge rather than something neat (for me anyway:mad: )

    MEH!!!

    I fixed it by clicking "make all widths consistent"

    Thanks for your help.... it got my brain firing - it should be up in about 10 mins when i have uploaded and gone through each page...

    keep checking in different browsers though fellas and any feedback (when its fixed) is welcome

    EDIT - its up....

    So have I ! I did it by converting the table to layers in DW (thought it might completely mess it up but it was a really quick fix). But I see I was 8 minutes too late. And I even saved the html as a text file ready to email you.... oh well, serves me right for being slow.

    edit: 11 minutes - even slower than I thought.

    You're welcome - it just struck me as a little problem I ought to have a go at for my own benefit as well as yours. By the way, I noticed that your splash page has still got Untitled1 in the head content - so I'm not the only one who always forgets this :)

    BakedBeans,

    What program is that -- the one you are using for your target browser check?
