pcs don’t like my divs?

    Apologies for my crude code. I’m attempting to learn css on the fly.

    My design is looking right on Macs (Firefox, Safari) but the image gallery I’ve cobbled together is all wrong on pretty much any browser on a PC. Any ideas?

    example: http://reactors.ie/reactors-new/male_actors.html

    (and also – the menu keeps shifting down about 125px more than it should on IE 6.0, any thought there would be equally appreciated!!)

    many, many thanks. I’m at a roadblock.

    First things first, validate your code! 98 Errors!

    I have to say – I laughed out loud at that topic :D

    On to your site, I would say you have made a valiant start! But I would say that you need to start again unfortunately… maybe check out some of the PSD to HTML tutorials that are around, it will give you a good idea of how to code without using tags like <font> :D

    Awesome start though dude, don’t get discouraged!

    Hi Robski & The Doc-

    Many thanks for the feedback and links. I definitely want to start from scratch (with my learning curve too).

    I validated another page (and valiadted the css file as well). Still a few errors, but tidier.

    If something strikes you as to why these aspects of the layout are not working on PCs and IE 6.0 – I’d greatly appreciate hearing whatever you got. Hoping to tie those bugs down, then go back and clean up the code.

    Best,
    Charlie

    Hey – well I could tell you why they don’t work in IE right now – its because IE is trying to devour your soul! lol

    Yea IE is evil, and no it doesn’t not work to web standards by any stretch of the imagination, so although you code isn’t the best, IE wont help you out like FireFox would for example. You kinda have to learn how to code with web standards in mind and then for things like IE, bend the rules a little ;)

    It really is just a learning thing, once you have watched one of the videos I’m pretty sure 100′s of questions will have been answered for you, especially about CSS :)

    I think the only advice is take your time, if you can, and just take note of how the guys are doing it in the videos, then it will all fall into place :)

    So unfortunately that’s not really answering specific questions in your code, but without being rude, its pretty messy :)

    Good luck! And be sure to ask more questions :)

    Thanks Robski -

    No worries, I know the code is a mess. Was just hoping to salvage it without having to start over as have time constraints.

    Looking forward to looking at those tutorials when I’m able.

    Best,
    Charlie
