why does my site look different in IE to Firefox..??

by 5 comments
Hi all --

Can anyone help please....

I have just finished using kompozer to create a new website.

Everything looks O.K. in Mozilla Firefox but when I go to Internet Explorer it all shows up to the left side and half way down the page the text is a lot bigger.

I have no idea why...and it's driving me s-l-o-w-l-y i-n-s-a-n-e.

Any help would be very gratefully received.

Thank you,

    Unfortunately this is totally common. IE is always a little different. The rendering engine is slightly out of whack. MS also thought it would be a good idea use proprietary formats.

    This IE thing has driven me mad, and is still an open sore for an odd css/IE issue I haven't been able to figure out yet.

    Sorry for your troubles. The fix is usually specific files (css) when the browser is detected as IE

      IE does it own thing unfortunately and each version is a little different.

      The best way to do it is make sure you use the standard fonts and use tables.

    Hi, I'm quite new on internet marketing and I decided to start writing lots of articles related with psychology/personal development tips niche (non-published). However, after writing 40-50 articles I started to read a lot of niche sites and I'm a little confused that probably my articles are getting too broad for this niche. Since I didn't target it for a specific mental health pathology I believe that I went too broad and will be very hard to monetize. I would appreciate any suggestions

    Back in my old corporate and sales days, we used to have a lot of conferences, team-building events, and stuff. That was interesting. You meet with your colleagues from all over the world and you talk. So, on one of these events I talk to a guy. He asked me how many clients I had at the moment. I said around 30. He was like, that was great. That was good for you. I wasn't so optimistic. Most of my customers at that moment were small and family-owned companies. That means lots of meeting. Calls. Visits. Orders. It was a logistic nightmare, to be honest. Then he asked me, what is the ratio of the customers I lost and win over a year. I said it's not such a big deal. I lose a customer or two. It happens, but at the same time, I find two or three new ones over the same time period. So, I'm still good. Then he said, now you see why it's great to have small customers. You can never get in trouble. Guess, it was my turn to ask questions. To my huge surprise, he said that he had only one client. Then, he said the name of this client and everything become quite clear. This company had quite a reputation outside its national borders. I was totally honest. I would give all of my clients for this one. This guy in charge of this VIP client told me, I should think twice. If he loses this client, he loses everything. All I could say is that was not a very likely scenario.

    Hi guys! It's me again. Is there when our customer is buying from us that we can pay with Paypal once we are commanding his item. I had to pay with my credit card and I wonder if my customer will have my credit card info when he'll receive his stuff. Thanks
