    Hey everyone,

    I am currently designing a website for myself, and I believe it is going quite nicely. I sent the test link to some mates to see what they said, and most were positive.. and then I got the replies from the people who use Safari.
    On both Chrome / Firefox the website appears fine (havn't tested IE yet..), but on Safari for some reason a grey space appears at the top of the home page.

    I have done everything to try and fix this but nothing seems to work. I also wasn't sure where to post this question, as I am not sure if it is a HTML/CSS or a Javascripting error.

    Thank you!

    sorry for double posting but I had another look and it looks like safari is ignoring my height: auto (also tried 100%) values in the css?

    Maybe that's not the problem - have you done a reset at the start of your CSS to overwrite the browser's own settings?

    No offense to all the work you've put into your site ... but
    create a site that works on all browsers, without annoying animations.

    I think you're wasting too much time on making it work on all browsers.

    If you need to demonstrate some "special skills", do it on a page where the
    site visitor decides to view it. It looks like you might be swinging toward
    HTML5/CSS3, which is great ... but you'll be required to deal with lagging
    and crappy browsers (for probably another year or so).

    That flying-in animation is just so cheesy and 1995-ish ... I didn't even
    want to click further into the site. You have 3D, photoshop, and other
    graphic skills? Make a great looking 3D static template that will fit nicely
    with any browser/monitor size. Tell people about yourself, provide a
    phone number ... it can almost be done in one page. Make it like an
    interactive business card .. the user only enters an email address and
    you send them something cool. Less is more.
