    Murray, it's all moving around on the screen!

    Newbyarthropod
      My new website (www.saddletreestables.com) has a problem. The index page, which looks fine in Internet Explorer 6, seems to have a problem on the "Vista" version wherein the page moves to the right. On Safari, it moves slightly down. All the other pages on the site are positioned cooperatively at the top left of the screen, just the home page has the problem.

      I can't see a difference in the code, but wiser eyes may prevail! Help me, OB1!

          Check your .copyright declarations in your <style> section. On
          your home page it's:

          .copyright {
          font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
          font-size: 10px;
          text-align: center;
          vertical-align: baseline;
          position: fixed;
          bottom: 0px;
          }

          But on other pages it's:

          .copyright {
          font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
          font-size: 10px;
          text-align: center;
          vertical-align: text-bottom;
          }

          Remove "position: fixed;" and "bottom: 0px;" from your home page
          and see what happens.

          As a side note, this is one reason I don't see the value in
          embedding stylesheets into the page code. Consider linking all
          your pages to an external stylesheet.

            Not Murray here, but in code view, at the bottom of your page you have this:

            </body>
            </html>
            </div>

            Remove extra </div> and see how it looks.

              Oh my goodness, you guys are AMAZING!!! I hope my bug-detection eye develops to this point someday!! Thank you for the help!!

              Brian, I'll look into linking to an extenal stylesheet. I remember hearing about that in my class, but will have to get out the books again and find out how to do it. Certainly seems like a better idea than having each page with its own (potentially erroneous and mismatched) styles!
