    css in opera and mozilla

    Please take a look at this link in IE. I've tested it in Opera 6.05 and Mozilla 1.0 and the layout looks different. Why is this?

    It looks good in IE 6 on windows XP. All the content is in the right spot. The only thing is (in your test document without content) the content boxes and the left nav do not extend down the page very far. So it leaves a whole lot of white page. Even when you add content, I would counsider using a page background color.

    I just viewed it in Netscape 6. As you prabably know it does not look right in this browser. I am not excactly sure why.

    One clue is that when I increase the font size in Netscape 6 I begin to see your nav bar, that did not show up at first.

    I ran into a problem simular to this one before. It seems that in IE 6, the div layers stay the width and height that I make them with (both with CSS and with setting the properties directly). In Netscape 6, I had to use a transparent gif as a place holder to keep my div sizes the way I wanted them.

    thanks for your feedback. I don't have NS6 here so I can't test in that browser.

    As for the white space, I've found if I specify a height in px for the divs then they'll fill it and if I need to go beyond that height they'll just expand in the same way tables do.

    The nav bar is showing in Opera and Mozilla but the right div sits over the top of the links. If I move it down a little then its ok but of course then what happens in IE is you have white space

    This is a freely available download or you can order it on CD for a nominal fee. However, Netscape 6-7 is based on Mozilla 1.02 so there is only nominal differences between the browsers.

    Netscape 6.0 = Mozilla 0.94
    Netscape 7.0 = Mozilla 1.0

    Said 1.02 on the Mozilla site last time I checked so that is what I was going by.

    Personally, I realize that every browser is going to have its own rendering quirks and I simply accept that. Any site I make is not going to be pixel perfect anyway because the medium cannot handle it and I accept that as well. If the sites show roughly similar and are usuable then I am happy.
