If you view [a href=\"http://hitech.lead2gold.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]My Webpage[/a] in firefox it looks fine (as basic as it is so far). However if you use IE it looks o.k. except the columns are all messed up.

The menu on the right if you click back and forth between them, the menu items eventually move themselves over to the center of the page overlapping everything...

I was hoping someone could give me a hand :)

in my opinion chunk the website rebuild it without tables and position with
position:absolute
position:relative
position:static
also make sure your xhtml divs and spans have widths and heights specified, restyle it to look good in internet explorer, and it should stay looking good in the other too, also check your stuff www.w3schools.com see if it validates, if it has errors in that or css fix them as that sometimes causes browser incompatibility issues.

What do you mean? Outside of the calendar, there are no tables. He is using CSS design for it. And it's not like IE doesn't support CSS widths and heights. Also, you don't validate at w3 schools, you validate at the w3c validator. Speaking of which, [a href=\"http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fhitech.lead2gold.org%2F\" target=\"_blank\"]here[/a]'s the link to your validation errors. You might want to clean those up, like he said.
Disclaimer: No matter how harsh I may be, I'm always IMO only.

I think this is the second time you've helped me moberemk!
Thanks both of you for your advice. Sadly enough, before this post, i didn't even know that you could have your webpage analysed for errors.

I took both of your advice and removed all the errors from the page. I still have a problem with the weird menu display... i guess i'll just keep playin around with the diminsions.

I actually have 2 style sheets i load dynamically depending if i want 3 columns (menu, center, calendar) or 2 columns (menu,center).

The main page (the one i'm whining about) is naturally using the 3 column stylesheet, and if you click on one of the menu links on the right, it takes you to a page that uses the 2 column stylesheet. They actually seem to work now (thanks to you guys and fixing the page errors).

It's just the 3 column one now.. *sighs*

Still no luck...

[a href=\"http://hitech.lead2gold.org/\" target=\"_blank\"]http://hitech.lead2gold.org/[/a] in IE causes the left menu to center itself on the page whenever it feels like it.

If you resize the window (even just a little) the menu automatically (instantly) corrects itself. Has anyone ever had any wierd issue like this in the past?
