    This page, which validates html and css has just started to display badly on my PC.

    Normally two straight line of thumbs.

    It displays OK on my BestAddress Editor.

    Any reports may help.

    Yes exactly what I get here. The puzzle is; that I have altered nothing on that page at all.
    Also, both my home copy and the site copy are both faulty. But both of my editors show it as Ok.

    As they say:- Watch this space.

    Thanks for your response.

    Editor screenshot attached.

    Did you recently just add a doctype or something?

    I think I’ve said it a couple o’ times before: Don’t trust any web editor’s page preview/design mode. That’s not a browser! You let yourself distract by this and it makes you write crappy (or not well thought out) code thinking you’re in safe waters.

    For example, you have a lot of useless and non-semantic markup there which is probably caused due to the use of that editor rather than hand coding. You can safely remove the paragraph and span elements around those anchors. Then float the anchors and you should be fine.

    Also, test your page frequently. If you’re not experienced enough to know what results your writing will have then test your page after each step you take. Write a line of code, save, test, write another line of code, save, test, …

    Aero. I have not as far as I can remember, had any need to do anything to the page or its html. It has always been stable.

    Stephan. I wrote the code a while ago. I still don't understand what has changed. I'll probably start again and see what I can do. I agree it is some of my "suck it and see" coding. Not the most scientific way to do things. I'll need to work out the best way to do it. It'll be good for a laugh.

    Thank you both and the others on the forum for your help, now and in the past.
