Ok so I checked the compatibility of my index page and my "about" page. For the most part the "about" page at least shows up in most browsers but the index doesn't. I don't understand why since I built "about" off of index.

Also, in some browsers the black boxes at the bottom of my "about" page don't show up. They are just plain old img src tags so I don't understand why not.

Also, i have my fonts set as arial, verdana, helvetica, sans-serif but in most browsers they look like **** and even default to some terrible serif font. Why? They look fine on my computer Mac OS X 10.5.6 Leopard

What browsers have you been checking in? I just checked in Firefox 3.0.5 and it looks fine. The font looks like Arial as well. Upon checking the source code you have some errors in your embedded stylesheet. You are using some comments <-- and --> but they are causing issues. You also have a <HEAD> and a </HEAD> in between your <style> tags when you shouldn't. Fix those issues and your page will likely show up in other browsers.

If you validate your page you won't have these issues.
