    Well I had a look at the style sheet and the gunk mentioned by Karinne is still there. You can check it here http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/. Frankly you're asking for help to fix an old banger.

    Start again and forget the 'table trick' of putting the content above the navigation. As long as the content is flagged by headings, search engines are perfectly well able to find it.

    Make yourself a template using a two column table with fixed width cells and use margin-left, margin-top etc. to control the position and dimensions of the navigation and content. Keep it simple simple.


    Here's the table html

    <table cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
    <td id="row1" colspan="2">header stuff</td>
    </tr>

    <tr>
    <td id="col1">
    <ul>
    <li></li>
    </ul>
    </td>

    <td id="col2">
    <div id="content">

    paste your heading and paragraphs here

    </div>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>

    Here's the core CSS - add extra code after checking this works first. Obviously change the actual values.

    table
    {
    rules for all text in table
    override rules in the relevant elements
    }

    td
    {
    padding:0;
    vertical-align:top;
    }


    #row1
    {
    height:100px
    }

    #col1
    {
    width:180px
    }

    #col2
    {
    width:600px
    }

    #col1 ul
    {
    margin-left:10px;
    margin-top:50px;
    margin-bottom:20px;
    }

    #content
    {
    margin-left:20px;
    margin-top:20px;
    margin-right:10px;
    margin-bottom:10px;
    }

    img{border:0}

    Ouch! When I said we'd taken the HTML out, I meant on the original CSS file on Jen's PC, and it really didn't fix anything.

    But thanks for all that stuff, ceetee. We'll see if that does anything to sort things.

    As I wrote in my previous post, we do have a 'fix', which Jen hasn't yet uploaded, in the hope that a proper solution would be found.

    Fingers and toes crossed...

    Make sure that you dont have an even number pair crossed, that would cancel out any luck you would have otherwise gained.

    Just my luck, since when I have them crossed, I don't have any fingers left free with which to count.

    But, less about my metatarsals and more about my CSS??? :thumbsup:

    The problem might be server side...

    I was having TONS of issues with CSS and Firefox, and when I opened my javascript console, I kept getting an error about the mimetype being incorrect, (text/plain instead of text/css) so the stylesheet wasn't getting called.

    Go Go Gadget Google..I found this.

    http://devedge.netscape.com/viewsour...ct-mime-types/

    So I added the mimetype and sure enough, everything is fine.

    I don't know if it'd help your situation, but I know there are a number of cases in which it would solve the problem.

    Thanks for the info, katiemarie, but where does the 'mimetype' get added to the page? (May as well give it a try).

    Well say you're linking a stylesheet to your page.

    <link href="general.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />

    The type="text/css" part is the mimetype, so from your end, just make sure you have that in properly.

    If it is, when you load your page in a browser, look at your Javascript console, and if you get errors about the mimetype being wrong, then it's an issue with the server that hosts your page.

    Well if you're running firefox, it's up at the top under the "Tools" menu.

    If you're running regular Mozilla, it's Tools > Web Development > Javascript Console.
