    I have a website that is fairly basic and looks right when I view it with firefox or netscape. But when I open it in internet explorer, some of the photos are missing and some of the text is way off on the side. How do I go about discovering what I am doing wrong?

    As you said when viewing in Firefox 3.0.5 it looks good.

    When I view it with IE 6.0 however I see what you mean. ETA: As the pictures are not there.

    I do know IE does not fully follow the web standard/s.

    You might find some useful starting/looking points here .

    I just looked at the front page. The pic of lovey is not there. I did a little test and found out why. You don't have a number in for the height and width. You either need to remove those or put in numbers. The default on some browsers is reading it as 0. So, your pic is displaying as a 0x0 pixel image.

    This is html of that pic that you have:

    <img height="" border="0" width="" alt="Lovey1" src="http://www.schoonerbay.net/rustyhillsfarm/lovey1.jpg" />

    If you change it to

    <img border="0" alt="Lovey1" src="http://www.schoonerbay.net/rustyhillsfarm/lovey1.jpg" />

    The pic loads just fine.

    On the front page between "Announcing" and "Lovey arrived..." there is supposed to be a gif with "Baby Girl" and then a jpg of my new filly. When I open the page with IE7, I don't see them. Do you?

    Maybe it's something with MY computer if you do see them.


    Edited to add: Matt, you are a lifesaver! This has been driving me INSANE for 2 days now, trying to figure out how to fix it. TY!

    Quote:It's amazing how many different browsers there are and so many seem to have different rules for how/what they load. I followed Matt's suggestion and that did help, I think. Some of the text is still out of alignment, but at least it is there!

    Thank you, everyone!
