    Hey all!

    I have just created this site and half way down the page the 'our experience' sub header magically changes position depending on what browser you use. In Explorer and Safari it seems ok but in firefox it goes above the text. The site was created in dreamweaver by using layers and just dropping text and images into them. I think this may be the problem?

    Thanks.

    wow ... that is complicated with all the layers and positioning.

    just for the fun of it, try changing your existing style section:

    <!--
    body {
    background-color: #636366;
    }
    .style11 {color: #FFFFFF}
    .style12 {font-weight: bold; color: #F08A2C; }
    .style14 {color: #FFFFFF; font-weight: bold; }
    .style16 {color: #F08A2C}
    -->


    with this one:

    <!--
    body {
    background-color: #636366;
    margin: 0px auto;
    height: 100%;
    }
    .style11 {color: #FFFFFF}
    .style12 {font-weight: bold; color: #F08A2C; }
    .style14 {color: #FFFFFF; font-weight: bold; }
    .style16 {color: #F08A2C}
    -->

    Hi I changed the code to what you have described but it still isnt working in firefox. When you mention it is compicated, I dont understand why? Is there any other way of building websites? Ive only just started out.

    There are many ways to build web sites. If you are really serious about learning, look at the source code and you'll start to understand. And, I'll be frank (don't confuse that with being mean), your code is very messy, so it's complicated to find anything, let alone the problem.

    Any ways, buried in the rubble, I spotted your issue:
    HTML Code:
    <div id="Layer11" style="position:absolute; width:143px; height:18px; z-index:6; top: 374px; left: 1px; color: #F08A2C; font-style: italic;"><img src="our-experience.gif" width="142" height="17"></div>
    You'll find this line of code inside another div for all your content. The correctly placed divs are external. All you need to do is move this line with the other ones, and redo your coordinates.

    I have moved the line of code but in Firefox the image is still in the wrong position.

    Change the numeric values corresponding to [minicode]top[/minicode] and [minicode]left[/minicode].

    I have changed the corresponding numeric values. The problem still exists. In Firefox the image appears lower than Safari and IE.
