    Heh, I think this is my first post in the code section of the forums. Needless to say, I can't code for crap, but been playing around with dreamweaver and notepad, trying to pick up what I can. Can someone take a look at my frontpage: www.nevtek.net ?

    The page displays as I want it to in IE (I know, that doesn't mean much), but it's all spoony in firefox.

    What part of the page is 'spoony'? I can't view the page in FF as I don't have it available at work, but if you can tell me what's wrong I can take a peek at the source and tell you what's wrong.

    Oh, and sorry for the sappy, pathetic verbiage on the site. I was having a bad night when I updated that.

    one way to fix that is to create your layout with CSS.
    I use CSS to handle most of the visuals on my site.

    *edit* the images seem broken? you must be working on your site right now :)

    PHP:
    <LINK rel="stylesheet" href="file:///E|/Dreamweaver%20Templates/12/general.css" type="text/css">
    change this, to I am guessing general.css as currently it will be searching visitors E drives to get the css file.

    best to use relative links in dreamweaver really

    Basically waht he is saying is that the address [href="file:///E|/Dreamweaver%20Templates/12/general.css"] refers to a file located on your hard drive. You will need to change the address to something that refers to where the file is located on your server

    ie. href="http://www.nevtek.net/general.css"

    or

    href="general.css" (if it is located in the same folder as your index page)

    hope that helps a little.
