Hi everybody,
I'm working on a site and its built on a Mac. It looks great in Mac FF, Safari and even looks mostly right on Mac IE.

This site isn't done, in fact I just started on it. But, I'm letting the client see what I've got and I'm not really sure what he's going to see on his PC with IE.

So, if there are any glaringly wrong things please let me know. (like the menu being on top of text, etc. Laughing out loud )

Thanks,
Ian

Yeah, I was afraid of that.

any suggestions on how to correct that. Its supposed to be about 40px to the left of the text box.

Looks like there is one error in your css but I don't think it is causing the menu error.

What is the purpose of floating and positioning the navcontainer?

Quote:
#navcontainer {
width: 132px;
float: left;
position: absolute;

margin-left: 175px;
margin-top: 60px;
}

Thanks Triumph,
I'll correct that.

Any idea what's causing the menu to be so far to the right?

Its supposed to be just to the left of the text box

If I don't float it it pushes the textbox beneath the navcontainer.

Nevermind, I'm stupid I think. I can get rid of the float and keep position absolute.

I'm about to repost, please check it again on your machine in 3 2 1 go

It does? I'm not seeing that.

Try:

 #navcontainer { 
 	width: 132px;
	position: absolute;
	left: 50%;
	margin-left: -200px;
 }
