I would appreciate if someone can help me correct my website which looks just fine under PC but not under Mac. I am sure it has something to do with CSS. Its mainly the right-side navigation bar which does not appear to be on the right place.
I have no access to Mac and cannot test it. Please look at www.arthritis-research.org and let me know on any input you may have to fix this.

Thanks

Too vague to understand what the problem is. go to the w3c.org and use their css and html validators and see if that helps, unless you want to try and be more specific.

It's DHTML right? You'll just have to risize the bar you've done nothing wrong in the coding.. i suggest 30 pixels thinner perhaps?

It looks just fine here with Safari 1.2 - but possibly you have already fixed the problem.

Hello, I was hoping to find some help. I have a client who is accessing the site at http://www.solo-e.com via a Mac running OS9 and IE 5.1. She sees a dark red background. And in some cases, no text where this is indeed text on the page.

I am guessing that this has to do with my not knowing how to make the site more Mac friendly. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Well honestly, there's not a whole that can be done, from my experience. There are no longer any updates being done from IE for mac, and i'd venture to say a very small portion of people would use that browser now.

It's nice to be as cross-browser compatible as possible, but I'd check the site in mozialla/netscape and IE for pc. if those 3 browsers are seeing the site correctly, then she should be satisfied.

Css is difficult to get right for every browser, and if it's that big of a deal, you'll have to consider doing parts of it over, to make it work.

or You can spend hours figuring out the problem for 1 browser that isn't worth the time to do, but hell as long as she's paying you do whatever.
