Question: Ive run into a roadblock Im hoping someone can help fix. Ive got a house blog and have been reworking it today with new graphics and the blogger.com link here: http://1916home.blogspot.com/ does not look good in IE, but is fine in Firefox. Now, to make matters worse, my own file here: http://www.1916home.net/about.html looks fine in both Firefox and IE. Where is my coding problem? Ive been trying to fix this thing since 10am and cant track down the problem. If anyone can solve this I would be extremely appreciative! Thanks! -Dave

I'd say you just need to go find a good resource for learning Javascript so you can learn the differences. Another option would be to use a Javascript library such as Prototype, jQuery, or Yahoo's own YUI. These solve the cross-browser problem but also make coding easier.

The issue comes down to how you set your widths and heights. IE and Firefox actually interpret sites differently. Everything except IE reads % values off of the whole screen. So if you have 1280 px in height, 100% = 1280px. IE does it different. If you create a subspace of say 800px, IE reads 100% as 800px. Firefox and the rest will still read 100% as 1280px. Its a small quirk that can be avoided by adding in straight up px values into your CSS section for everything and avoid using width and height in your html code if possible.

Check again. Might be you get right this time. At times there are cache-related issues with IE. So Refresh or load on a fresh IE browser

Font tags may work, but they are no longer to be used as they have been deprecated. Same for the center tags and a bunch more. New standards are coming out (HTML 5.0/CSS 3.0). I hope all browser developers cut out ALL backward compatibility for these browsers so people will start making proper web pages with the correct coding. You need to use CSS. Example: body { font-family: verdana, arial, 'sans serif'; color: #336633; } h1 { font-family: 'century schoolbook', 'times new roman', times, serif; color: #336633; } Then all the stuff that is NOT between the "h1" tags will have your "basefont".
