    Hi,

    If anyone is interested I'd be very appreciative if you'd have a gander at a page on my site.

    It looks great on a mac, but on the pc there are lines everywhere where they shouldn't. I've been trying to fix it for a couple of days now, but the real problem is I don't know what the hell I'm doing.

    Also the wedding link shows problems. I've set my borders, cell spaces, etc all to 0 to no avail.

    Can any one offer a solution?

    Thanks

    Steven

    By lines appearing where they shouldnt, I presume you mean the ones in the border?

    Might help if you posted screenshots of what it looks like on your mac (if possible), i dont actually have access to a mac.

    No not the lines around the outside. The lines appear through the photograph.

    For example look at the attached file. The wedding page is fine on my computer but breaks up on pc's. Any ideas?

    Ah, I see now.

    Right, took two screenshots of your site in Mozilla Firefox when using Web Developer Extension. Gives me the option of outlining table cells and tables. So first screenshot, I've just outlined the tables:

    and this one i've outlined the cells:

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...llswedding.png

    Right, first things first.

    That table layout is way too complex. You can do it a bit simpler if you just think about it. For one, i dont understand why the Home link is in a seperate table on its own compared to all the other links.

    I'd devide the page up into two tables. One for the right column area, and one for the left.

    Left area: 3 rows:
    one for the top paragraph, one for the centre one with the links and picture, and one for the bottom paragraph. The links can be in a table of the own. Align=left and the picture will be align=right.

    Right area: 3 rows (but they're all higilty pigilty compared to the other one (hence seperate table). In fact, you could probably even get away with two. Put that small circle with the rings and the text below which are in seperate just now and put them together, if you know how use CSS to apply some top padding to lower the text down to where you have it now. The 2nd row will be for the paragraph below.

    Give that a try. Hope it works. (Havn't used tables in a while, someone got me hooked on CSS :cheeky: )

    Thanks for that.

    I was trying to cut corners...the Home link was added almost at the end when i realised i hadn't included the link.

    I'll go back and start again, making sure i have everything there from the beginning.

    I want to learn about CSS, I understand that will stand a better chance of the page looking similar in various browsers.

    Any tips or sites that can give me a crash course in CSS.

    Cheers

    Steven

    I got this book:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...055029-1101266

    to be honest, I havn't read the whole thing through. The DHTML section makes up the most of it and has to be the greatest thing i've ever read. Just gets my mind buzzing with ideas. But anyway, enough of that: To be honest, most of the stuff in CSS is self explanatory. You might be better off with this: (which i've only just found, but it looks quite good:
