    Browser compatablity

    Hello
    i made a site in Microsoft publisher 2003 about 2 yrs ago and it has worked perfect i was able to update it monthly and expand until ie8 come out and i updated to publisher 2007 now it only works well in ie8 and not as good plus all the options, links, bells and whistles, do not work. i want to edit it to work and do not have a lot of knowledge about coding. does anyone have any suggestions. how can i make it Firefox compatible too. i understand that if i get it Firefox,IE, and Netscape compatible ill be in good shape. i don't have a lot of time to get it up to speed customers are complaining and i am loosing sales fast. any short cuts would be great too. someone pleas help!

    Microsoft publisher is one of the worst tool to create a web page. You should never use it or any other WYSIWYG editors. Instead learn to hand code your page with some good editors like notepad++ (or the code view of DW) and write a clean code using semantic tags.

    PS: Validate your code while developing your pages.

    Honestly, if you have a commercial website and don’t have the knowledge to build/maintain it then hire somebody to do it. This should be the most important expense if you have a business that is relying on a working website. If you want to be professional and make money like a pro then hire a pro to create you a professional website. If you save money on your most important asset then don’t wonder that you’ll lose customers.

    You can't think of developing a business website with publisher or without any html/web design knowledge. You will absolutely loose customers then.

    Better to contact a web company or a web professional.
