    page falling apart

    I am hoping someone can help with this - the page is http://nativegl.com/services.html

    I have viewed it in IE7 and Firefox with not problem but heard back that on some browsers the page layout falls apart and the div layer (with the specialties) on the left ends up at the bottom somewhere.

    First it would be a good idea to fix these errors: LINK

    Secondly, tables should be used for table data only - not for layout. Have a look into divs.

    Also, it would be good to know in which specific browsers the problem occours

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    All good advice in the above post. There is no point to fighting layout problems in a page with validation errors so once you're using valid code (and hopefully getting away from the table-based layout) we can take another look.

    In addition, you can test for page performance in different browsers for FREE (woohoo!) here:

    This comes in very handy for debugging a layout for a browser you don't personally have available.

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
