Hi folks, please take a look at http://www.dandgadvocacy.org.uk/sitetests/menutest/indexphp.php and see what you think of it. I have (I think) found the last bug that was causing problems in IE, it was the infamous 'collapsing margins' one that had me puzzled for ages.

Once I am happy with it I will move it all to the live site and make the couple of changes needed to make it active.

As soon as I can I want to get this site online so that I can get on with some personal web site updates.

OOps, due to using text on background image for links. Fixed now. Shock

BTW was that after you increased the font size or was it at your default settings :?:

default.

Looks good, except for those ugly W3 buttons at the bottom. Wink

(I hate those things, they need to have a contest or something for making something more classy and less gauche.)

Looks good on my wide-screen monitor. I'm with Triumph on the buttons. Have you considered using anchors with css for them? Then you could match the scheme of the site.

Thanks for that DeprecatedDiva.

I agree the W3C buttons do look out of place. I'll see what I can do to change them to something else as suggested.

Several folks are playing around with the ugly buttons. You may get some inspiration from these:
