    What does it look like in Chrome, Safari, and Opera?

    Also which version of IE does it look reasonable in since IE7, IE8, and IE9 all have minor differences in the way they display pages that are incorrectly coded (they mostly display correctly coded pages the same way Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Safari do).

    Hello Hottel,
    Congratulations on the valid HTML and CSS!

    Wow though, so much absolute positioning. And a good example of how valid doesn't always mean working.

    Have you considered not using ap and just letting the document flow naturally?
    Have you looked what this site looks like when the browser is only 800px wide? How about on a cell phone?
    Validate often DURING development - Use it like a splelchecker | Debug during Development |Write it for FireFox, ignore IE
    Use the right DocType | Validate your markup | Validate your CSS | Why validating is good | Why tables are bad

    Thank you. I haven't gotten to the mobile site yet. I need to finish the "desktops" first.
    As far as letting it flow - it doesn't layout all that well. I just can't understand why in the landing page, Buyers, Sellers , contant Us it looks fine but then it isn't formatted in News and the towns. I used the same template for all.
