Fine in IE

Fine in IE for PC and MAC, fine in Safari here.
I think we should keep an option of the current temp theme (the less imaged one for dail-up users), the new one (the beta one now), and a blank one for cell phones and palms. That would ROCK!!

Welcome...

...to the wonderful world of CSS and Mozilla!

Moz/NS (same codebase, so that's why they render things the same way) has a problem with some of the CSS attributes. Padding is one - every site I've designed that uses certain CSS attributes has to dynamically load a specific CSS for IE, NN, or generic browsers. It's easy to test for in the user agent string and have the server serve up the appropriate stylesheet.

Peace,
Drew

Try adding a margin-left: 20p

Try adding a margin-left: 20px; to the #main in the stylesheet. By the way, great job fixing up the logo and the CSS. As many people have told me: I can do the stuff that most people will never see, however, when I start designing stuff, anyone who sees it turns to stone Wink Also, the Edit CSS plugin for Firefox is an absolute must for any webpage designer.

I might have some time this weekend to work on redoing the .theme (not the CSS). I want to get rid of the current XTemplate-based one and use a pure div and CSS based theme. Of course, by saying that, I'm going to have a ton of reports and stuff to do for Monday. I can't wait for spring break.

Excellent. Once this is done, I can try and fix these forums (among other things)

You _are_ doing it outside of XTemplate, aren't you? :?

Looks good, but the colors need brightening on the AF logo, they appear *very* muted on your version.
