    Go to www.the-barracks.com/v3/ on IE and it displays perfectly...go to it on Mozilla and it completly ignores my CSS. That one table is absolutly posistion as top: 200 right: 0 and it completly ignores it and displays it all the way on the left side. Funny, though, my CSS describing my text and link styles are fine :con:

    I hate Mozilla. Crappy browser can't even display code right.

    Go IE!

    Oh, and on a side not, what is the CSS command for global font? I want to make it how no matter what view->text size you have it on, it displays the same, but don't want to go and put <p></p> around every bit of text I have.

    Code:
    href="/v3/style.css"
    change that to just style.css as the index page is located in the same directory.


    Code:
    <html>
    <head><title>The - Barracks</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/v3/style.css" title="Default">
    </head>

    Skin? That's no skin! That's my operating system!

    edit:

    For those who are not in the know, MacOS X has two window styles built in to the Window Manager: Aqua and Brushed Metal. Aqua is what you see most often. Brushed Metal is reserved for applicBackupations which intereact with physical appliances--or at least, that how its supposed to be.

    Applications which sport the brushed metal interface include:

    Quicktime Player
    iTunes
    iChat
    iSync
    iPhoto
    iDVD
    iMovie
    Safari
    iCal
    the Finder (in MacOS 10.3, aka Panther)
    DVD Player
    Calculator
    Address Book
    Backup

    *shudder* I hate brushed metal.

    Anyways, yeah, Mozilla owns. While you may have to do a little extra coding (one or two short lines) for alignments and such, it's worth it. Especially when so many people run it.

    You actually just have to code along existing standards. The only thing it doesn't do like Internet Explorer (bugs in both browsers aside) is interpreting buggy code exactly the same way Internet Explorer does.

    Considering Mozilla is the only browser that acctually strives to (and succeeds in) following the standards instead of making up their own and let webdesigners base their designs on bugs and flaws (read IE), perhaps you shouldn't complain about them as much as on your own code.
    Why don't you run it through the w3 consortium's CSS validator (which is offered as a tool in Mozilla Firebird.)

    For another example, you can go to http://www.meyerweb.com/eric/css/edge/menus/demo.html and see how well your IE browser handles assigning styles to arbitrary elements on a css event.
    Your IE won't be able to handle this simple technique that would save tonnes of code for web developers.

    Support Gecko, destroy MSIE, for standards and sanity.

    Hunter, it's /v3/style.css because when I call for the header from files in a sub folder, it doesn't work as just style.css, looking in that subfolder for a style.css, which isn't there.

    And by adding that extra table, wouldn't that then throw off my content table?

    Notepad.

    I tried the code you gave me, doesn't work.

    Why is Mozilla 'ignoring' my CSS? I adjusted it as the w3c form said, as it is 'ok' now (no errors, only a couple warnings) but it still won't display properly. I even added a "align=right" tag to the table, atop of the CSS positioning.

    Why should the menur and menul be position absolute?
    Especially when the rest of the table is not.
    You can never be sure how a browser is gonna treat the font size, so they should either both be relative or both absolute, althouth the former would be preferable.
