problem with templetes

Wanted to know if anybody could help me with some alignment issues.

 

Please look at the following page in ie and firefox:

 

You will notice on the right colum (catagories) there is a line in firefox where its nice and smooth in ie.

Also there seems to be a problem with the frames on sub cat pages:

 

You will see this one has a full green outline the whole way around the items:

When i do the subcat it seems to pull left colum and there is not a full green frame around the top portion of the page nor the bottom half with the items.

 

Also shopping cart works fine but when you have an item in it the cart gets all thrown off, any idea how to adjust that?

That's not as easy as you think.

 

If you think that make it look well in ie and firefox is all you have to care about, let me tell you that I think not.

 

This tool maybe can help you:

http://validator.w3.org/

 

Try to make your page fully html-compliant to ensure that you are going to see what you want to in all and each web browser.

 

I have received orders even from a blackberry, and many visits using Opera, or even the Playstation 2 browser (yes, probably it is less than 5% of my visits, but if you care about your customers, then why bother them asking them to use ie or firefox in order to place an order to you? Also think about this: your competitors probably have a full html-compliant web site so they can satisfy all the customers that you are not able to satisfy).

 

Check the html 4.01 specification if you are not sure why the validator says you have a particular error.

 

Try to fix all the html-bugs you have, and surely you will get what you want.

 

Yes, that is not a easy task (in your home page you have something like 190 bugs). But it is possible (i had over 500 bugs in some pages before I discovered this validator tool)

Hey!!... I still need help with this http://www.oscommerce.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=309208. Please, take a look on it.

I made a typo.

 

If you look the html 4.01 specification, probably is not going to be of much help, since your site is xhtml 1.0. Then, looking the xhtml 1.0 specification could be a better idea. lol :lol:
