Template & Netscape Woes - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Greetings -- Thought I'd use DWTs when I redid my site today...(note to self, test template in all browsers before building site out -- but then again, perhaps that's the beauty of using templates!). Am stumped on why in Netscape 7 the content expands the entire width of the browser (and beyond)? Also, why is there a larger gap (compared to IE) between the menu triggers and the H1 heading? I can live with it, but was curious. Appreciate a second pair of eyes: http://www.web-eze.com/ Kindest, Kelley Rao, Webeze...

    The text scrolls right off the page for me in Moz 1.5a. To the right. I
    have the favorite places panel on the left, about 2 inches wide -- screen
    res 1024x768.

    Thanks Bonnie -- that's what I'm stumped with? Probably time to take a
    break from the computer and come back to it in a bit. I'm sure it's
    something simple (always is)!

    One reason may be line 134 in your code:

    <td valign="top" nowrap><table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0"
    cellpadding="0">

    That td set to nowrap contains, I think, everything on the page down to
    line 219. In a standards mode, transitional doctype you are getting the
    depreciated nowrap in earnest, and all of those paragraphs in the main text
    are stretching out to one line. Select that td in the properties
    inspector, and I think you will see it.

    I viewed your site in both IE and Netscape 7.1 and couldn't find any appreciable difference in contents and browser width. They looked identical to me and the contents did not go beyond the screen.

    I do see the difference in spacing between the navbar elements and the H1 but it's not significant. (It does look a bit better with the narrower width in IE, though) Maybe the 7.1 software solved a problem associated with 7.0???

    Excellent catch. I figured it had something to do with doctypes and nothing
    to do with Templates, but I'm not sure I would have caught this one....
