http://www.ozgart.com/Final/

I have included a screenshot of the site in firefox on a mac at http://www.ozgart.com/screenshot.jpg - the site seems to work in firefox, safari, and ie 6 on a mac- please let me know if it works and looks life the screenshot in other browsers (especially ie7 and firefox on windows).

Thanks!

I hate to say it but the layout does not work that well in Win FF and I'm surprised that the problems were not apparent in FF Mac, it resizes very badly and the right links are lost off the edge of the screen. If you are not running browser full screen you loose the links and trying to scroll them on results in shifting the center element only.

Maybe the re-size script plays some part ? the onload call needs to be lowercase to validate though.

Hm,

Well each column is set at 33% of the screen size so FF windows must not be resizing the columns correctly. I have reposted a version with a new doctype and lowercase onresize in the body (everything validates except the onresize - is there a different/better way to automatically reload the elements of a page when a user resizes the browser window?). Let me know if the same problem is still occurring. If so, can you perhaps post a screenshot for me? Thanks!

It looks as you intended on my firefox and IE7, but it breaks when you resize text in IE7... either up or down.
Possibly an IE bug as it is fine in FF.... i'll try and get some screenshots for you later.

One thing i did notice though is that the navigation looks a bit awkward when becoming larger on hover, by pushing the rest over. I'm sure you are aware of it but i think it detracts from the rest of the sites smoothness a bit

Hm, well I changed the links to bold when they are moused over but I'm not sure if they stand out enough now (ie that users will know to click on them).

As for the IE7 reload problems, do you mean that it breaks when you resize the browser window? Does it just stop loading or not resize correctly or is it no longer scrollable? Thanks for clarifying Smile

Cheers,
