    hiya

    did u view the page on a mac using Netscape?

    Netscape can't handle layers well or the combination of cascading style sheets and layers.
    You'll be safer if instaed of entering your text directly inside a layer,you used a table first, entered the text in the table and then place the table into the layer. This will force the text to follow the formatting of the table instead of the layer.

    Also for gen ref I thought this might come handy:

    They both look the same to me..I am using a mac and a pc. Make sure you have the updated version of NN and IE.

    no matter what, good, clean code is key. Validate the heck out of your code, using any one of the numerous html validating programs available. then, test test test... It helps to know the limitations of IE and NTSCP, and what the cross browser differences are, so listen to people on that, and read up... another angle to approach it from is looking at it on the Mac, and then analyzing what is wrong with the page, then going back and looking at each trouble area and see what could be wrong with the code. but, it boils down to clean code.

    example of something stupid causing things to look different: this is ridiculously easy, but if your closing table data (</TD>) tag is not on the same last line of the code for the TD, then it can shift things.

    anyway, that's my 2 cents. good luck...
