    I don't know if anyone else has this problem but when I am on the internet, using Safari, my lines (words) are sometimes on top of each other. Is there any reason for this? How can I fix it? I tried to change the font but no luck.

    It drives me batty, I need help. Please!

    What are your Appearance settings in Safari's Preferences? Is this only on specific sites? Maybe post a quick screenshot. :)

    Mad Jew, I am not at home right now, I am at work. I can check it later and post it for you. How do I do the screen print? I haven't memorized the commands yet.

    Thanks for the help.

    To take a screen shot, press shift+apple+3. Or, press shift+apple+4 and then use the special mouse cursor to draw a rectangle around the area you want to capture. Each captured image (Picture 1.png, then Picture 2.png, etc.) will be saved to the Desktop.

    I have been converting some web pages that work fine in IE to also work in Safari, and the biggest issue I've had so far is Safari's support for inline style definitions (CSS tags). If the web pages you are viewing have inline CSS tags, this might cause the problem you are experiencing with text overlaying text.

    In appearance:

    Standard font: Comic Sans MS 18
    Fixed -width font: Comic Sans MS 16

    Display images when page opens is checked off

    Default Encoding: Western (ISO Latin 1)

    How do I get the image into this window. I tried the shift-apple-3 and I got the image, but when i put it into the window it just comes up with an url not the image.

    ??? Tell the owners of the website that their pages aren't compatible with Safari. Tell Apple to make Safari comform to W3C standards for inline style sheets.

    As if.

    The recommendations I have received in this area were to use FireFox.

    Does it still screw up if you change your Standard Font to Times 16 and your Fixed Width Font to Courier 13? :)
