Hi,
I created a webpage, which is based on XHTML and CSS (valid). When I watch it in an Browser like Netscape or Safari, everything is fine. In other Browsers, there are problems.
In IE/Windows:
- The Navigationbar is no more connected to the top picture. Why?
- In the Navigationmenu on the left, presumably the active anchor has another background. Why?

In Opera(Mac and Win(?)):
- Doesn't understand the z-index tags, so the Navigationmenu on the left is not clickable. Why?

These errors occured when I was testing the page. Perhaps there are even more.

If anyone is willing to look at my code, you could do so at http://www.hoerterer.de/pofi/uni/spanisch/

Perhaps someone has a clue, how to solve these problems.

Thx Christoph

Hi, I solved this problem by removing some whitespace and a "newline". Now the code doesn't look better but the result does. Wierd behaviour.

Broken Design in IE/Win

Youv'e been *Beeped* can't check the page.

Don't know if the bellow has any relevance.

You need to be careful with z-index and links from what I can remember over laid content will natuaraly block a link if it's underneath
that is normal; if you are able to click on them in IE it's because of a bug that allows links to be clickable through a z layer in IE only.
It's again a case of IE getting it wrong? but producing a pleasing result in this instance. Bit like the box model which they interpreted correctly IMHO but W3C deemed a different take on logic!! for once I champion IE ( but not often!)

I have seen that. But when I click on the link, it works.

I neither know if this concerns my problem. But the site also works in Mozilla and Safari. The only Browser having problems with the links on the left is Opera.

I would be glad ich someone could help me.

Thx Christoph
