    Heres a page I am working on.

    http://clarksvillemls.com/hcvindex.htm

    Works fine in ffox/ie - when view in chrome- goes kablooey.

    The portion that blows it up, is the overflow from the home-showcase script (5 houses @ the bottom).

    ie/ffox hides the overflow, but chrome does not.

    What am i missing in my CSS?

    Thanks!

    The problem is that you're using a tabled layout for something that isn't tabled.

    The only thing that might fix it easily (and probably won't) is to put the whole table into a div with width: 776px;
    <div style="width: 776px;">
    Your table
    </div>
    This might work, but ultimately you'll end up with much bigger issues (specifically bloated code whenever you try to edit something). You will have to, at some point, look at non-tabled code.

    Using your advice, I solved this problem by putting my table inside a div, inside another table. Thanks, TheGAME1264, you freakin rock!

    You page looks broken in IE.

    It will be a tough one to fix ... eliminating all <table> layouts and using pure CSS.
    You might have to start over from the beginning. You'll never get it right in
    all browsers if you use <table>s.

    well crapples. looks liek the 3 menu items on the right side look larger in your browser than what they should be looking like (an the word "view" is breaking to the next line and messing it all up). Hopefully I have that fixed now. Thanks Coolcat!

    You didn't mention anything about the content management for your new website.
    Looking at the HTML, there isn't any HTML doctype defined, not even HTML5.

    Is there any reason that you are not using WordPress for your site content management system?
    Like these: https://www.google.com/search?q=wordpress real estate free themes&btnG=Search

    Or even better yet, you purchase a better, professional theme and something you can customize
    easily for your own site. With your existing site, how do the site owners manage the photos
    and content? Is there some sort of CMS you are using?

    Is the whole website operation based on this?
    http://www.idxbroker.com/idx_broker.php

    IDX Broker is now offering a WordPress Plugin.
    That would make using WordPress even easier:
    http://realestateblogsites.com/2010/...estate-plugin/

    Or, as I mentioned before, find a WordPress theme to use.
    Maybe a WordPress theme that is specifically designed for IDX Broker?

    My CMS system evolves around includes and DW template files.
    But yeah, my whole operation is pretty much based on IDXBrkr''s feed.
    Wordpress or PHP nuke or any of that freaks me out, my Softalicious/Fantastico module installs WPs that break after you get an hour into them (so much for CNet's top pick).

    About killing those tables off- You'd recommend using CSS for replace them with DIVs? What about Browser-side text size (liek in the options bar for browser text size), CSS too?
