Hi there, I hope this is ok to ask for help here. I'm currently off work ill, but my boss has just called and asked if I can amend a site that I've been working on Sad The client is complaining that there's spacing between the email links, but it looks absolutely fine to me on the all computers I've been able to check it on (Mac: Firefox 2.0, PC: Firefox, IE7), but unfortunately, as you can see, I don't have much access to many different set-ups (I should have checked with Safari when I was in the office, doh!)!

The site is stored here: http://www.keescott.co.uk/jonholmesmedia/
but there is framed forwarding from here: http://www.jonholmesmedia.com/ (which I don't have any control over). So I don't know if the framed forwarding might be messing everything up...?

The site itself is only a holding page, so the primary concern is to cover the major basics: Firefox, IE7, IE6, Safari, Opera. My main concern is IE6 (probably the largest userbase I haven't been able to check).

Any feedback on why there might be problems in my code would be highly appreciated, too!

The site should have one red box at the top, and then a list of their clients below.

Thanks so much, I hope someone can help!
- Johnny

Go to the forums 'How To'

Go to the forums 'How To' section and look for the post on IE white space bug it shouldn't too hard to fix up.

It should be a lesson learnt though one can't release a site until it's checked in the commonest and buggiest browser on the market Smile

*smacks forehead* Doh! The space after an img tag bug.... How silly of me! Thanks Hugo, I'm completely stupid for forgetting that! I coded it on a Mac, too, so it's probably got weird formatting (even though it shouldn't do).

Thanks!

No probs Smile you can get a really snazy thingy for Intel Macs now that allow you to run a partitioned copy of Windoze in real time no rebooting think it's called parallels or something similarly forgetable.

Sounds pretty amazing! But

Sounds pretty amazing! But it would require getting my company to buy new Intel Macs..! Smile It's worth remembering if there's a lot of HTML work, though! It might be justifiable if there was enough work to make it worthwhile.

Thanks again.

I've fixed the code as best I can, but I still need someone to check it out in IE6 if anyone out there still uses it... Thanks!
