Hi,

The site http://www.barbourchiro.com/ works just fine in IE but in FF and Chrome it is not aligning properly.

The problem is at -

    <div class="focus_block">
      <div class="block_left"></div>
      <div class="block_right"></div>
      <br clear="all" />
    </div>

Any help would be great. I am having a hard time figuring this one out as I got this site from someone else and early am not strong with CSS.

The full css is -

background-image:url(images/bg.jpg);

Sorry the area on the html is

Sorry the area on the html is -

    <div class="focus_block">
      <div class="block_left"></div>
      <div class="block_right"></div>
      <br clear="all" />
    </div>

It did not take it before.

The issue doesn't appear to

The issue doesn't appear to be so much the float aspect as it is the menu wrapping to 2 lines in FF.

In .header, delete the height property and add {overflow: hidden;} to enclose its float child elements.

Edit .navigation as follows:

.navigation {
    color: #006699;
    font-size: 20px;
    font-weight: normal;
    letter-spacing: -1px;
    margin: 0 auto;
    overflow: hidden;  /*Creates a new block formatting context 
                         so it will live peaceably with its float
                         sibling.*/ 
    padding-top: 2px;
    white-space: nowrap;
}

That menu should really be coded as a ul, not a div.

cheers,
