My Site Don't Look Right In Internet Explorer 7
Check out how the pictures look. I don't get it. IE 6 is cool but.......IE 7, Firefox, Netscape.....looks distorted.

Sounds like IE 6 is the problem, not IE 7. IE 6 tried to do a lot of things its own (Microsoft's), way. It's good that you are testing the rendering using other browsers, but you should be doing this at design time too. Sorry, but I can't spot what
is causing the problem by looking at the source view of your website's index page. You might catch the problem if you do a compare of both the rendered page (source view) for various browsers, and the code view of the IDE you are using to create the page.
As I see you use the same content at the top of each page, you can create a "master page" for those areas that repeat, and include seperate content place holders for the areas that change for each page. As the problem you have now is in the repeating part,
you can seperate that out, and not need to worry that the fault is in another part of the code for the pages. It may not tell you where the problem is, but should help you to findout where it's not.
For myself, I aim to get things to look right in FireFox, and just check it against IE. In the IDE, I use "Browse with..." (then FireFox), rather than "Browse" or ' Build" to check things as I go. In any case, your site is a good idea, hope it works
out for you. BRN..

Thanks for the heads up...and you are correct. I should have checked in when desiging. If you look closely. It is only the top pictures. That is it. It has something to do with the headers.
Does anyone else have suggestions?

Wow!!! still no response. I would think that this is a popular issue. I got two pictures up top that will not stay in place when viewing in Firefox, IE 7...etc. But works fine in IE 6.

Try to reword your subject line and put more details in the message; then repost it to another forum section here. Sometimes it's a matter of getting it in the right place at the right time. I think you have them in the starter kits section, and they
might get a better responce in the one of the content display sections. Good luck. BRN..

If you are using CSS make sure you edit your default.css for the properties for that section. I had this problem = I was displaying an image in a "title" section. In the default.css - this was only defined for a height of 30px. It looked okay in IE 6, but
was too small in IE7. I looked at the Masterpage (where I defined the width/height) and the CSS and found I had to edit my definition in the default.css to increase the image height.
I also moved my image reference from my Masterpage to the CSS. This way my masterpage just says <dif type="title"></div> and when you go to the default.css - i've defined the height/width and image url for this section.
Hope this helps!!
