    Karloff,

    How about putting that text you have right into the image itself?

    That way, you can pick some better fonts and customize it ... it would
    then look the same in every browser.

    Experiment with some nice looking text:

    I'm afraid the header looks just about as badly aligned on my Firefox... Looks like getting rid of the margins on the h2 fixes it, though.

    i tried testing/fixing it there and the margin/ padding were giving problems so i decided to use absolute positioning .... what do you think of this. not done it before but my 1st instinct is that it is bad practice.:ermm:

    I would like to add in my defence that the client specified the colors and the position of the header titles

    In general, absolute positioning on the page isn't a great idea. But if it fixes your problem, and it's on a relatively immobile piece of text (which the header classifies as), you should be more or less fine.

    Absolute positioning is bad usually, but as said, it's just sometimes hard to work around it for a different solution.

    WDF uses some absolute positioning, but I avoided it as much as possible. I believe the search fields are absolutely positioned because every browser had its own idea of where to put them otherwise.
