I have produced a website on my PC and it look fine. But when I look at the same site on My mac the website is all over the place!

Why is this? and how/what do I need to do to sort it so it looks the same on both?

Cheers

Chances are it looks different in different browsers on both the Mac or PC. for someone t help they are going to need a link to see exactly what you mean by all over the place.

There are many differences in the way different browsers render a web page, default styles, such as padding on paragraphs, differ, and the way the browser interprets things like positioning and the box model vary quite wildly.

If it is a CSS problem you're having check out Quirks Mode's compatibility chart (http://www.quirksmode.org/css/contents.html) to see if you can narrow down what the problem is.

Asking for help on a forum like this is always a good start but for anyone to help you they'll need a link to the site and a detailed explanation of the problem and which platforms/browsers you have the problem with.

There are many other resources on the web for browser compatibility problems, you should always check your code in as many browsers as possible within your target user group.

A List Apart (http://alistapart.com/) is one of the best resources for articles on web design development, and BrowsrCamp (http://www.browsrcamp.com/) lets you see what your site will look like in Mac OSX Safari online.
