View Full Version : Viewing on Mac - Weird Problem

It's not really a problem but an annoyance. I just set up my page so it is html 4.0.1 strict. I don't have any errors or anything. (as far as my code is concerned...the newsboard program generates some errors) Everything is viewed perfectly on a windows computer. However on a mac I get this problem....

If you have a mac, use safari or firefox to view the page. At first glance, you will say "Well what's the problem?" The bottom of the middle table below fashion expert should be the bottom of the page. However the page continues further down alittle bit. If I didn't have those tables in the middle filling that empty space, the page would still be that long. For example, on one of my pages, I only have one table in the middle but my page still scrolls down right to that spot. Even if there is no content to push the table down that far which is the weird part.

Has anyone ever encountered this? Is this possibly a bug with mac browsers? Is there maybe a fix?

I don’t see any difference in IE and in Firefox/Safari (Mac). Also there is no such thing as a bug in “Mac browsers” because “Mac browsers” aren’t generally different than the same vendor’s browser in any other OS (except IE 5).

What I see is an index page that looks alright but the other pages are screwed up (right column is below middle column which is too far right). What you you mean by “page continues further down a little bit”? Attached i an image of what I’m seeing in Firefox.

I figured out my own problem. Sorry about the other pages. They got screwed up and I was just concentrating on the main page for now. That picture is how it would look on a windows computer but on a mac for some reason it made the page longer than it should of been for some reason.

My solution: rebuilt my entire code and that fixed it. Can't say what caused it though which kind of pisses me off because I am one of those people that likes to know why certain things happen.

thanks for the pic. I added that space at the bottom. I finally fixed everything and made my coding xhtml. Thank for the responses.
