Questions - CSS & making IE and Netscape play well together  
I'm still plugging away on that website. This is what I've got so far. I have several hundred pages to go - boring and repetitive, but easy enough to do via templates now that the main designing work is over.

I have a few questions about issues I'm still experiencing:

- The difference in display between Netscape & IE is driving me crazy. If I fix something in IE, it gets messed up in Netscape and vice versa. Currently the display is fine in Netscape, but the main column text is squished over to the right in IE. Is there a way to fix this so the text shows up correctly in both browsers? Do I need to put in some extra code to tell IE not to right justify it or something?

- how to put name, address, phone, & email beneath small pics in left column without making them a link?

- how do I make the Mapquest page & newsletter/email list page come up in separate tab/window?

- I'm also having problems getting a new header file to work & removing the
info at the beginning of the CSS code. That way I can use the same header as I currently do with nice text right in the image, rather than header text being generated from the code.

I'm looking into this, but will probably not have anything for you till tomorrow... I want to see if I can come up with something simple...

What would help is if you outlined what you had to change between the Moz (correct, btw) and the IE (hopelessly fucked) versions...

Thank you again for your help.

If it would make it easier I could email you my CSS code and make a note of the single change that fixes it in one and breaks it in the other?

Hey let me know if php or javascripting are available...there are some css hacks to get around this but they are ug-leee. Plus which they offend the general objective of css, clean "coding"...

(See, my pages are written up wth cgi scripts. So I output different pages entirely depending on the browser I have. But you're not using cgi, so...if you've got inline scripting that's another way out.

I think I have the big problem figured out. If you get a chance to go to look at the index / white template and all those pages up, and the dark template, they should be working in both Netscape and IE.

If you see weird things, please let me know?

Thanks again for all of your help and great suggestions.
