looks to be the start of something good..

my one thought.. dont put all those admin links on the front page. if you want them all linked, i'd suggest a seperate page and a little insignia (a single X or O or symbol) in the corner that you click to get to that admin links page
..nuttier then a squirrel turd..

Your CSS font sizes are all over the place in my Mac Safari browser. Looks ok in Firefox.

If you want a 100% CSS layout you might try this liquid 3 column template as a starting point. It's very robust.

I thought that putting the admin links on main page was cool.

Yes, I didnt care for other browsers other than mozilla. I suppose there will not be a prolem with three column layout, as it seems to olok same in mozilla and IE[troublesome browser]. I know that the fonts wont exactly fit in the space on other browsers. I will be fixing it for for ie. can you please post a screenshot (or mail me at yzonesoft@yahoo.com) because I dont have access to a mac.

My layout is fine on all browsers, the problems are with the fonts.

So, converting all px to em will solve it. thank you for the second link.

Is there something web safe css fonts?

mozilla is ported to different OSs and one day it will be the standard. I know it is not a excuse. I will make sure that the website looks fine in all other browsers. thank you.

Yes, your layout is fine, but it is table based. I specifically said if you want a 100% CSS solution to consider the ruthsarian layout.

I find the clagnut method does a pretty good job of making the fonts work in a reasonably similiar fashion across all platforms and browsers. It's not perfect, but it does work better than px or pts.

Not necessarily. The standards pundits will tell you building your site using CSS is a best practice and give you good reasons for doing so

Under real world conditions I don't know if the benefits are going to be worth the effort for you. Browser bugs lurk everywhere in Explorer and visual editors for the most part don't support most CSS layouts with any degree of accuracy. If you are comfortable with hand coding and revamping anyway to account for the font size issues you can probably use the skidoo layout without much modification

I find http://www.browsercam.com a valuable tool for determining how my site will look in different browsers, on different platforms and with different resolutions.

It takes snapshot of your site using combinations of the above (to your liking), and you can review them all afterwards or download the whole bunch (up to 100 screenshots) as a single zip file.

Just don't give'em your real mail address :wink:
