Hi all.

Just finished this sub-site (http://www.tm4b.com/theproperty/) for a friend who wants to sell/let his property and wanted a website that would give a brief description and preview of the house for anyone interested.

The site meets its purpose in terms of content, but criticisms in terms of browser compatibility and layout improvements etc. are most welcomed!

looks ok in IE. A disaster in FF1.0.4 and Opera 7.51 (both on WinXP).

Pic is from FF.

Hi there

In Firefox and Opera the layout breaks - I've attached an image

Edit: Beaten to it again!

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

I'm disgusted with myself.

I was so desperate to finish it that i completely forgot to check it out in other browsers.

Thanks. I'll check it out now.

I wish i had come across this earlier on.

If you guys can have look through IE to see how it's supposed to look.

What's going on to make it so mucked up in FF?

Ok. It's been repaired now.

I added a left-margin the width of the left menu and it all aligns up correctly.

More criticisms please!

You might want to give the right box overflow: auto; as the text spills out onto the grey background when resized.

Does that problem still exist? If so, can you throw in a screen-shot to help my learning process.

Firefox 1.0.4 and Explorer 6 have nice centered displays. Both arrived very quickly. Generally, very nice.

Fix "three rears aspect" and "splahsbacks".

The Explorer slideshow works well; the Firefox slideshow flashes for a split-second what looks to be a background image between every transition. It's a distraction.

The flash is the previous image just before the new one is stable.
