Hello Again,

Sorry to kep bothering everyone, but I still need a little help. I'm coming across problems I haven't come across before.

My new problem is that beyond a 1024 width resoluton the site--particulalry the home page--gets distorted. As opposed to posting all the code that might be relevatn here I am poting links ot the code. Css for the site, CSS for the menu bar, The PHP include file, and here is teh home page since it's a PHP file:

<!DOCTYPE html>
#menubar {margin-left:16.5%}

<!--<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />-->
<meta name="keywords" content="INEC, International Nusring Education COnsortium, nursing, study abroad, dominican republic, haiti, dr. mildred fennal, mildred fennal">
<meta name="description" content="INEC is Nurses preparing to serve a global society through study abroad">
<title>INEC...International Nursing Education Consortium</title>

<link href="inec.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

function MM_preloadImages() { //v3.0
  var d=document; if(d.images){ if(!d.MM_p) d.MM_p=new Array();
    var i,j=d.MM_p.length,a=MM_preloadImages.arguments; for(i=0; i<a.length; i++)
    if (a[i].indexOf("#")!=0){ d.MM_p[j]=new Image; d.MM_p[j++].src=a[i];}}

function MM_findObj(n, d) { //v4.01
  var p,i,x;  if(!d) d=document; if((p=n.indexOf("?"))>0&&parent.frames.length) {
    d=parent.frames[n.substring(p+1)].document; n=n.substring(0,p);}
  if(!(x=d[n])&&d.all) x=d.all[n]; for (i=0;!x&&i<d.forms.length;i++) x=d.forms[i][n];
  for(i=0;!x&&d.layers&&i<d.layers.length;i++) x=MM_findObj(n,d.layers[i].document);
  if(!x && d.getElementById) x=d.getElementById(n); return x;

function MM_swapImage() { //v3.0
  var i,j=0,x,a=MM_swapImage.arguments; document.MM_sr=new Array; for(i=0;i<(a.length-2);i+=3)

Hey everyone, I seemed to have resolved the distortion issue. Intead of having a body tag width of 100% I made it 1024px. I made it 100% trying to avoid the very problem I now have--whitespace to the right of the webpage. I figured by making it liquid it aould adopt to any resolution or screen size.

I apologize for the "wild goodse chase". After I postred I went seaching my code for solutions and changed some CSS and then couldn't stick around to inform anyone of the changes. For now, I am leaving things as is so you can "search and destroy". Let me know what you find. Thanks again.

Is perhaps some or all of the problem in th fact that my styles are mixed with pixels and percentaegs? Is that confusing the browser (IE)? IF so, would I need to make it percentage uniformly so various screen sizes and resolutions render the same page?? I guess I would have ro convert the pixels aI want into percentages, right?

why don't you use web kits to help you design your page so it "fits" in all browsers?

Also, your 2nd link does not work.

I'm not so much worried abotu browsers as I am monitor resolutions unless that's what you meant. Thanks for your tips, though

@Reliable, can you mark this as solved ....?
