Hi folks:

Having a problem with a site I just built:

http://www.denisegoslinerorenstein.com/

Both the XHTML and CSS validate, and it's been tested in IE6+, Opera, Firefox 1.5+, Mozilla, Netscape and Safari on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4. I haven't found a problem, but one of the client's friends claims that he's seeing what's in the attached gif in Firefox. Anyone else seeing that, or have any suggestions as to how to troubleshoot?

Many thanks,
Adam

thanks, guys. i'm stumped, since if it works in firefox on one platform, it seems to work in them all. plus, the site isn't doing anything too crazy layout-wise. only thing i can figure is that i overused position:absolute.

Which is the problem when

Which is the problem when using em or relative dimensions for height and widths, you'll need to think the layout through with some min-widths or go to fixed pixels

brilliant--looks like an easy fix. i have a minimum font size set in my firefox preferences, so i didn't get that. will setting min-widths be cross-browser safe? or does ie6 have the same problem it does with min-heights?

many thanks for your help everyone.

It happens in IE as well -

It happens in IE as well - I've tested it in IE7. IE6 and below won't support min-width.

Although to be honest, how many people resize text on a website to make it smaller?

true. unfortunately, one of the client's friends apparently does. luckily, he uses firefox, so min-width will fix the problem for him. thanks again.
