Hi, everyone,
I'm pretty new at web design, so I'm hoping someone could help me. I've written my website, it's up and running, but I've run into this problem: In Explorer, it displays fine, but in Google Chrome, some problems become apparent.
Here's a typical page:
http://www.amber-instruments.co.uk/probes.htm
I'd be most grateful if someone could shed some light so that I might fix this.
Many thanks,
Graham

read any of the threads, Tables Vs CSS
tables do not display well anywhere
fixed pixel sizes do not display well anywhere
inline styles do not display well anywhere,

the code is out of whack, start and end tags are misaligned
You have a lone </td> outside of the <tbody>, not in a <tr>
for a code compliant browser that will cause problems
html errors will put browsers into quirks mode, which is different for every browser, and may caus the page to fail in spectacular fashion

<tag1><tag2></tag1></tag2> does not work
<tag1><tag2></tag2></tag1> is required
try to get the inline styles into the external stylesheet that is already being used, 1 style declared once is much smaller than 1 style for each tag, so much faster, easier to correct

HI,
Thank you so much for taking the time to browse over the page, and replying, I do appreciate it.
As you can probably see, I'm a bit of newbie at web design; I've got the basics under my belt (I think!) but need experience, and some help from others.
I'll take your advice and read through the associated threads, and go over the code with a fine-toothed comb.
Many thanks once again, I'm very grateful.

too easy, , ,
the w3c code validators provide more than a list of errors, they provide a list of suggested corrections
work through top to bottom
often there are half as many errors as it seems
html is linear everything is handled in the order it is typed in

If you fix an error on line 1 that is the cause of an error on line 99, the error on line 99 goes away too

its definitely not the worst code, there have been problems that just display blank screens, in everything


hands up everyone who has done that
(no hands but mine?? you are all lying HA HA HA)
