Noobie alert!

I wish I'd found this forum sooner, but better late than never, I always say!

I wonder if any of you might be able to offer some criticism of my site, and would it be possible for anyone to explain why it looks different in Firebird?

It looks fine in IE 6 and Opera 7.2, but Firebird 0.7 screws with the height of the containers....

Thanks!

I'm not an expert in CSS yet, but I can offer an independent assessment of your site. The main thing that jumps out at me is the sizing of your web page. For most people, I think they will have to scroll to look at your content. Maybe you could use a smaller picture, so that the important content of your site is not overwhelmed by the "background" or style of the site.

Thanks kathpave. I hadn't noticed that.

I re-sized the pic, and in the process I think I may have answered my Firebird question. I also changed the div sizes to px instead of %. This makes it look the same in all of the browsers I'm using.

That is much better. Now as long as I have my browser open all the way, all of the content is visible.

I looked at the site in IE and Mozilla Firebird. The only difference I see is IE seems to display the right hand table/box with a smaller font than with Firebird. Which I don't think is a big deal. It looks to be just 1 point difference.
