viewing webpage in different browsers?
« on: November 26, 2007, 07:35:13 AM »
Could anyone tell me in creating html for a webpage, is there a way to make your site viewable the same in all browsers?

For example, my site looks great in Mozilla, but in Internet explorer you need to scroll over to the right to see the entire page.

Mozilla you see everything there and don't even have a scroller at the bottom.

Is there something I need to do or not do to make the page viewable without having to scroll left and right in one and not the other.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

The simplest is to begin with the beginning

I usually do in a way like this
1. try to use CSS as much as possible
2. i test with only my browser, Opera
3. when it is finished, i test with IE, and for every difference i put in a file called IE.css all the css differences that make it working with IE.
4. then IE.css is included only if the user is browsing with IE
5. do steps 3 and 4 for firefox

I just try to make it work in all browsers without hacks. Then do what rejetto mentions and make a seperate css file for ie6 :P I can get it working in everything else easy enough... its just dreaded ol IE6 and below. Safari and all the other browsers can go to hell. I just build with Firefox, Opera and IE and hope for the best  :D

... of course you don't have to install every browser on earth.
