    form component?

    my site has a contact page, http://www.lukesplace.com/Andy_Montanas/Contact/ and I was wondering as to why the form appears correct in IE, but in FireFox each of the elements in the form are on seperate lines. Also im trying to make the label entitled Comments/Message: on it own line with the textarea just below it and also the both would be centered in the fieldset so that the bottom of that label and the top of the textarea have a distance between them of about 10 pixels.
    Thanks...
    If space is an issue, I can get rid of the yellow bar on the left.

    if you remove the text-indent style from your #content p ID in your main_screen.css they will be on the same line. you have styles applied to almost everything, plus the defaults and an external stylesheet and an internal one applying styles to the same things. The <p> tags in your form are in your content div as well, so your "#content p" id and "form p" classes are cascading, I'm afraid I can't really keep track, and it can't be much fun for you either. Try consolidating some of those styles, and try to put them in one file, having them all together will make troubleshooting much easier.

    Made a bunch of changes, I just put the forms elements inside a new div (#contact) and put it in the external CSS (So does that make things appear to be more readable?)
    Thanks a lot and let me know what youi think...

    I'm still finding it pretty complex, but mostly because of our differing styles, and I might see a layout problem. I can see the finished product being pretty though. I'll have a look, but honestly it'll take me a while to get my bearings. I'll pm you so we can swap contact info.

    Thanks, I'm not trying to be difficult.
    But you know what I'm trying to do so if there is a better way to do it let me know. PM?
    I thought as long as everything is in its own div, that is good but whatever you say is gold.
    Thanks a lot...
