Someone just sent me a screenshot of how my blog is showing up in their browser. It's pretty scary. Nobody else has said there is a problem with it, though so I'm wondering if it's his computer or if others are seeing it that way.

Can someone who has IE please check:
Hey Sal's Outlooks

and see if it looks normal or out of whack to you?

    Looks fine in IE8.

    Most likely whoever is telling you this is using IE6. They just need to upgrade.

    Yes they are. I wonder how many others are, too, though?

      You can see the statistical usage of what web browser people use, and it is pretty up to date compared to a lot of other statistics.

    It looks fine ie IE 7 (or 8) whatever I've got running. The problem might be that they are running an older version of IE that the artisteer theme you are using might not not have ie css code support for.

    Sal, I checked the site in IE7 and it was HUGE!
    Reminded me of when I go to Google Images and every thing gets bigger such as the
    search box and text. Everything is larger than life.

    When I viewed it in FF it looks normal.

    Have a Great Day!

    Thanks all. I think I have what I need to know here.

    Michael - I thought it looked pretty big in FF, too. I actually ditched one sidebar because it squashed the text. I guess I'll have to go in and look at the css or default settings. I'm not a tech. This isn't going to be fun. I've been trying to finish a newsletter for 2 days now and every time I get to writing I just have more problems coming up. Cripes - the first of the year has turned into a swamper. Once it is all smooth again I smell a good year coming on.

    Sal,

    I just checked on IE 6 & IE 8 and everything looked fine, didn't get any display errors, but I did have the same thoughts/suggestions as GT & Loren, the first entry needs some paragraph spacing, and the main text/bg contrast isn't enough... it was a bit hard to read, however your right menus captured my eyes, the white background with the dark blue text. My eyes were immediately focused on your right menus, compared to the main text/articles, which seemed to blend in like camouflage with the background color.

    Thanks Guys -- I didn't even notice the one paragraph post there, LMAO. Um...I can fix that.

    I was a bit surprised after I got the screen shot from my pal - I never even noticed that the darned thing wasn't black and white in the text area. Too busy trying to get the posts up, etc. The first time I realized it wasn't black on white was tonight. (LOL some more).

    It's all good though because after I get this newsletter finished tonight, I'm going to be changing over to a completely new and different thing and I will make sure that I get a white background on my print.............

    Because we all know that people take black and white to be authority. See how smart I look here typing in black and white? Much smarter than the wingnut who didn't realize that there were no paragraph breaks in her last post on her blog. Right?

    Crap I hate technology. I just got off the phone with my tech though so it will all be alright again. Having a tech is just as kewl as wrapping up in a big snuggie.

      Geez, Sal, your site looks fine in IE7 but now I have to do some research on flouride. I have hypothyroidism which developed for no apparent reason and now I'm wondering if the water had anything to do with it.

      Now I have to see if it's reversible - maybe if I switch to all bottled water?

      Even learn something when trying to scope out sites for people around here...lol.

    You don't have to use white as a background. A subtle blue
    like the WarriorForum is nice, and I've used creamy whites
    with yellow in them. Black text on an off-white (yellowish)
    background is the easiest to read and least fatiguing to the
    eye - for me anyway.
