I tried creating a site in CSS using positioning from left and top. I had a bunch of text boxes with bgcolors. They looked fine on my monitor but my friend's monitor is smaller and they looked all messed up on his! They ran out of the window in covered up the scroll bars on the bottom and right side of the screen!

Is this supposed to happen? any fixes?

My text box runs off page into scroll bars!

This is due to resolution - the amount of pixels that can be displayed on the screen. The most common is (unfortunately) 800x600, which means you have 800 pixels across and 600 down, with a total area of 480000 pixels. Your monitor is probably higher, at 1024 x 768. Therefore, when viewed on a smaller res screen the boxes will be bigger.
