    Site looks good only in IE

    www.passportcanada.com

    If i try to view the site in mozilla, NS and opera, it looks way different.

    Looks like the browsers, apart from IE cannot read the cellspace="20" part.

    What should i do...redesign the whole thing or is there a 'code fix for that'?

    Any help would be very very much appreciated.

    shame about that as the site looks good in IE, very clean very quick and very slick looking - just my type of site without all the clutter. If it was me I'd prolly say stuff all you none IE users but then thats not very helpful i guess.

    Interesting that you used cellspace in the design, i tend to stear towards spacing using cell widths and spacer images if needed, maybe that would be a safer way to go in future

    Take a look at the result of your page being validated: http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...1+Transitional Not pretty, eh? I know it may seem like overkill, but if you fix all of the errors, your page will probably look much closer in Netscape/Mozilla/Opera as it does in Internet Explorer (which does look very slick, by the way).

    fwiw, I think it still looks good in Mozilla. 'snot great in Opera, but still usable and not totally hideous. It approaches ugly in NS 4.7 (menu is all squiffy), but again it's still usable.

    I'd follow Colin's advice and work through your errors. When it's valid, take another look..

    Yes yes I know I will hear alot of "how could you!!" after I say this but.......

    Ignore the rest

    Last I check IE had a massive majority (80% or so using it!) just maybe you could afford to ignore the rest

    you know, many persons from UK, US...from all around the world try to immigrate to Canada each year. Computer techies prefer the US though...and then after a few years of working down south, they "retire" to Canada.

    I'm Canadian. I want to get out. I can't go to the UK because they have even more circular laws the Canada. I could go to the US, but that requires a Green Card, and they've tightened down on that recently.

    I'm in Canada, too, but I love here. I went to Toronto in May and I don't like there. I'm in Vancouver.

    Not yet, there's a silly bill on the table to make it legal though.
