plz help me or just let me know wat elsi i will tell to make u guys ny problem clear.


I'm here! But I can show up only 2 or 3 times a week.

You can't have more than one pair of inline style tags. You have two. And style tags must be in the head. One of your pairs is between the head and the body.

You also have the IE/FF compatibility bug.

Actually, IE is the troublemaker here. Since you adjusted things to work in IE, they don't work in the other browsers.

But you can fix it.

The real problem is that you have nonzero surrounding styles (padding, border, margin) in the same tags and defined styles containing size styles (height, width). The problem is that IE handles this situation in a different nesting order:

- IE crams the surrounding styles INSIDE the measured sizes.

- The other browsers put the surrounding styles OUTSIDE the defined sizes, as defined in the W3C standard.

The remedy is to not apply nonzero surrounding styles to the same tags that have size styles. Nest two tag pairs, applying surrounding styles to one pair, and size styles to the other. Now you can control which is inside the other.

Div is a good tag to use for the inserted tag for the nesting.
