    Hi I am working on: http://www.helenk.saratoga.org.uk/

    The site works fine in Explorer, and Netscape... And Passes W3C html 4.01 loose

    The table cells are remaining constant, but the center justify is jumping around in Firefox...

    This is my first subcontract for another web development company, so it need to be right...


    Any inputs greatly appreciated...

    Thanks -Hagen :-)

    I don't see any problems in FF but ...

    Why are you using a HTML Transitional doctype! Strict ... all the way!

    Loose the tables too.

    Hi karrine, the customer wants the 2 central "boxes" to be the same length even if they have differing amounts of content...

    I really have no idea how to do this without tables... Please let me know how to do this and I will give it a go...

    Thanks -Hagen

    To accomplish this in a standards compliant/tabless way you need to use a technique called faux columns... Basically, all-in-all your code will look something like this...

    HTML Code:
    <div style="background-image: url(someurlhere.jpg); position: relative">
      <div style="float: left; width: 300px; position: relative">
         Content for left column goes here
      </div>
      <div style="float: left; width: 300px; left: 10px; position: relative">
        Content for right column goes here
      </div>
      <br style="clear: left" />
    </div>
    Note: This is just a basic outline of how your HTML should look while using the faux column technique. You'll obviosuly have to play with the style to get everything right. I wouldn't worry too much about using Netscape to test anything being that it uses Firefox's HTML rendering engine and IE's rendering engine.

    Also note, I use the left property on the right div as a margin for the left column. This is to insure browser compatibilty. I've noticed that in IE, margins are NOT rendered correctly.

    Good luck!

    Oh yeah...

    HTML Code:
    <div style="position: relative; margin: 0px auto; width: 600px">
    Centered div goes here...
    </div>

    Just a personal thing, but I would put the testimonials in italics.
    It sort of makes them look less like her words and more like someone else's.

    Agreed. Plus it aesthetically looks better.
