    I am doing a webpage in CSS/HTML. It looks fine on my mac, but when I go on a PC to look the text seems to start two or 3 lines down from where it should be.


    I have googled IE bugs but I cant find any that pertain to my situation

    Well one thing I notice is that you have #about set to a 200px width, but the img inside that element have a width of 209px. So you may want to check your math there. Not sure that this will fix the problem though.

    You have your image on the left and the text to the right each in its own separate div, but I'd recommend putting them into a single div, which may make things easier.

    Also, so you know, IE6 doesn't support transparent png so your site looks rather bad in IE6. Transparent gif should work though.

    In your CSS there's some empty statements (e.g. 'background:;') that you should delete or comment out (/* */) to make sure they aren't causing any problems.

    Another note, you have multiple items with an id equal to 'navigation' which isn't allowed. Only one id can exist per page according to standards. Use class instead. This won't fix your problem, but wanted to let you know. There's other besides navigation too, so check your code.
