http://www.djomp.f2s.com/cg/

This is my girlfriend's site that I'm running for her while she's away for a year. It's all nice PHP that she can update from anywhere. Finally got round to CSS-ing it a week or so ago.

Already know that there's a problem in IE5.5 (or 5, can't remember which version I was using now...) - it doesn't recognise the DOCTYPE and puts the fonts a size bigger.

Second site done: http://www.djomp.co.uk

Only tested on my two browsers so far...

Moz 1.0 and IE6 (both Win) render it 'correctly', however I haven't had time to install a nice suite of browsers, and only have Windows to test under at the moment. So if anyone finds anything else wrong with the site in another browser can you post below so's I can fix it.

Cheers

Site check

Hi DJomp,
The site looks fine in Opera 7.
In Netscape 4.08 most things move left and the background color won't fill the whole box, it just highlights the text. It's still readable, dose anyone still use that browser anyway. Smile

Cheers Tony, good to hear. As for NS4... York University until last summer (and knowing them probably still now)! Hopefully they've got their act together.

Have added my site above, the alternate link is www.djomp.f2s.com/djomp - finally got around to double-checking the CSS last night and uploading it. Again there's nowt too fancy going on so #should# work in most...

Re: dJomp sites

Moz 1.0 and IE6 (both Win) render it 'correctly',

On the "Karting" and "About Me" pages, the text overflows the page, causing horizontal scroll-bars. Is that purposefully 'correct' or not?

Oops. Cheers, didn't spot that... I've changed the site significantly since the original post, obviously didn't look far enough. Should be simple to fix... I hope...

Thanks!

Oh, OK, not me going mad...

The problem here is that my domain name company stick my site in a frame, and IE does strange things when you declare a DOCTYPE in a frame - if a vertical scroll bar appears, rather than 'shrinking' the content a little, it just adds a horizontal scroll bar.

So viewed from http://www.djomp.f2s.com/djomp/ it's fine. And it's fine on my PC (did wonder why!)

Looks like I'm stuck with them until I sort out some better hosting solutions...
