so I made these websites happy at not including anything that might upset internet explorer. since I'm not immediately at a machine with ie (I have never got wine to work with it ), i was extra careful. working natively with konqueror i test them out on firefox... beautifal. internet explorer... wtf? why has it put borders on some menu items when I specified no borders and done other weirdnesses? i've inlined the css and such and am not bothered with fixed not working on the plant one, but has anyone got any fixes for any of the other items?

In your CSS, sometimes you fill in just two out of four settings like with padding, you have two values instead of four, which MIGHT cause abnormalities. It shouldn't be the solution though.

Okay, I was able to fix your menu by doing the following:
#links a{	display: block;	text-align: center;	font: bold 1em sans-serif; 	padding: 5px 10px 0px 0px;	margin: 0px 0px 0px 2px;	text-decoration: none;	border: none;	color: #ddddff;}#links a:hover{	border: none;	color: #000000;	background-color: #dddddd;}

This gives you a nice border
/* electric-blue - #005fa9 */#content{	position: absolute;	top: 80px;	left: 150px;	right: 10px;	color: #222222;	font: 13px Verdana, sans-serif;	padding: 10px; 	border: 1px dashed #000000;	background-color: #eeeeee;}

In general, there's *A LOT* wrong with your CSS. I suggest that you copy the syntax from other websites, because you make a lot of fatal mistakes (like what I mentioned at the beginning of this post).

Goodluck!

but this here and here says it should be sufficent to only have 2 values?

thanks for your help though its much appreciated (just about to try it now).

thanks! they are nearly ie compliant :)

how about on the plant one. there seems to be striking resembelances between koqueror (and hence safari) and firefox's renderer as although fonts, colors .etc are different, object placement seems to be exact clones.
well
#menu li{	display: block;	margin-left: -30px;	padding: 4px;}

adjusts it nicely on firefox and konqueror, whereas in ie it renders it offscreen (0px is what makes it render nicely).

is there any way to sort this out (javascript - how?).

thanks for much for helping me :)

I made a bunch of stylesheets similar to those when I was working on rWeb. You can check them out if you want and use/abuse them all you want.
