Here's my page;

http://www.moderntimes.com/home_page/index.html

It works perfectly in FF, and Safari, I don't have Opera. But it's out of position in IE7 for windows, not to mention how truly messed up it is in IE5 for the MAC.

Could someone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

You seriously can't expect it to display the way you want when you have 45 coding errors. http://validator.w3.org

I KNOW about those coding errors. They make no sense to me. According to the validator, I can't use any tags!! So I guess I can't get help here!!!!!

More of the above. That stupid validator tells me that p3 is undefined!!! What's that all about? I clearly define p3 in the stylesheet. That's what I mean, I don't understand the lousy validator.

well p3 and p4 aren't tags. it's p and just p. that right there probally produces a lot of your errors. if you need to style differen p's diffeent ways, use a class applied to them. fix the errors first and it'll probally clean up a lot of warnings.

you have some crazy stuff going on in there. i opened it on Opera 8 FF1.5 and IE6 and all 3 were jacked up.

One thing that jumped ot wa you had a #wrapper in the css but none in the html. since you are doing an off center centered layout use the wrapper to center it all and then make everyhtin gelse slide in to place.

css manhandled but not cleaned up and a small iffy hack of applying a 1px sideborder to the wrapper for IE (which probally wont be needd if if fix the errors) and this works visually.

Dont just use this straight up as it's messy. fix the issues and then swing back in and we can clean up your css more. there is a lot of unnesscecary stuff in there.

<p><span>&#40;MY VIEWS&#41;</span></h2>
<p><span>Though movies and history are rarely referred to in the same context, they are a fitting compliment to one another. I found a remarkable connection with history and the great classic films. However, as they say; they don't make them the way they used to. With the exception of Steven Spielberg’s, “Empire of the Sun”, and “Schindler&rsquo;s List”, most filmmakers today have little regard for historical facts. It&rsquo;s a shame that an entire generation of young americans will come to know history by way of the proclivities of an Oliver Stone. For more on the movies, and film history please select one of my classic film links. There's a brief description of my film sites below</span></p>

<p3>“tell me, how did you love the picture”, Sam Goldwyn, 1939</p3>

<p><span>I like almost all types of music, but mostly I like jazz, <a title="real jazz" href="http://www.allaboutjazz.com/" target="_blank">real jazz</a>. I like classical, and <a title="gershwin" href="http://www.gershwin.com/" target="_blank">American music</a>, and my choice as composer is Aaron Copland. I like Verdi&rsquo;s, “Rigoletto” and Puccini&rsquo;s, “Tosca”. <a title="Renee" href="http://www.renee-fleming.com/" target="_blank">Renee Fleming</a> is my favorite soprano. Did you know that Jimmy Dorsey and Igor Stravinsky were a great influence on Charlie Parker? Count Basie&rsquo;s piano style was preferred to Duke Ellington&rsquo;s. Miles Davis was the son of an East St. Louis dentist.</span></p>

<p3><span>“to be or not to bop”, Dizzy Gillespie, 1979</span></p3>


<p><span>As for<a title="classic films" href="http://www.moderntimes.com/palace/introduction.html" target="_blank"> fiction films</a>, “The Thin Man, The Grapes of Wrath, Double Indemnity”, and the films of <a href="http://www.scene360.com/EDITINGroom_Hawks.html" target="_blank">Howard Hawks</a>, are among my favorites. I am especially fond of the American style, <a title="film noir" href="http://www.moderntimes.com/palace/kc.htm" target="_blank">Film Noir</a>. The master, Chaplin, the <a title="screwball comedy" href="http://www.moderntimes.com/screwball/" target="_blank">Screwball Comedies</a> of the thirties, and the sophisticated works of Neil Simon are all among my choices for comedy. Though I admire Bergman, Truffaut, and Fellini, I prefer <a href="http://www.moderntimes.com/palace/40.html" target="_blank">domestic films</a>. I suppose that means that I can never truly be considered a film “connoisseur”? My pick as the top contemporary filmmaker is <a title="woody allen" href="http://www.woodyallen.com/" target="_blank">Woody Allen</a>. my vote for the best film of all time, “The Godfather”.</span></p>

Most of your coding errors were because you havent put the styles in the right order...

eg you have



<i><b>Midnight Ramble;</i></b>


It should be



<i><b>Midnight Ramble;</b></i>


EDIT
this brings it down to 4 errors

Okay, harbingerOTV, I got the page to validate, and it works fine in IE7 for windows. I still have problems with IE5 for the MAC.

I really appreciate all your help. I've learned a great deal. I sometime get ahead of myself.

I love this forum. And I apologize for flying off the hook with the prior poster.

Again thanks.

Cool to hear you've gotten something from it. That's how we all learn.

but, really, why are you killing yourself with IEmac? Do you have to make this for someone who has it? it hasn't been supported in years, adn i dont personally know any mac user that uses it. i know a good deal of mac people fwiw.


<style type="text/css" media="screen,projection">
/* backslash hack hides from IEmac \*/
@import url(?.css);
/* end hack */
</style>


can hide the code from IEmac and deliver unstyled contnet to them. I would say that most mac users run firefox or safari. Those should be the greatest concerns. If your hard set on it I can see what I can do, but having a pc...

I didnt test this css so make a back up but it seems you have either some meningless or redundant code in there :

site look good though. the whole lighthouse and the tall/narrow look works well and the colors are nice together.
