    view on some pc's not what it supposted to be.

    hello, problem found :-).
    i got some complaints of people that say that the view is'nt what it's supposted to be.
    when i view the sites from a different pc then my own the sites all show up like theu should but on other pc's apperently not.
    i made a screenshot of the problem. the screenshot is how most people see the site. but when i try on my pc's it's fullscreen like normal.

    ok overlooked something. i tried to open up a site i've made on my home pc. these are the export settings i used: http://www.ce-be.be/temps/site1.png .
    i opend it in firefox and it works perfect: http://www.ce-be.be/temps/site_firefox.png . as you can see the site fills in whole the browser window. i opend the same file with internet explorer 8 and this is what i get at first: http://www.ce-be.be/temps/site_ie1.png . i always must click on allow blocked content first and then i get this: http://www.ce-be.be/temps/site_ie2.png . as you can see the site only fills in half of the browserwindow. at my work i also use ie and there the site fills the entire screen. does anyone know what i am doing wrong here??

    Hi,
    it is because of the dimensions in your HTML code. Rather than 100% everywhere, try specifying the exact dimensions of the movie. IE8 is more compliant with standards, and basically this means that containers need exact pixel height specifications.

    You could force IE7 compatibility, but this is a short term solution. All you would need to do in that case is place the following HTML META tag into the HEAD element of each Web page (before tags other than TITLE or META):

    <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"/>

    This will tell Windows Internet Explorer 8 to render each page as Windows Internet Explorer 7 would, fixing your Web site.

    (works in IE8, although it will not fix the issue in some browsers)

    If you want full screen, you could investigate SWFObject as a solution - http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/

    It uses a javascript solution to embed the movie so it displays as you want in pretty much all browsers.

    Insanity is just a point of view. After all, the world looks pretty normal through your own underpants.
