Reconciling IE and Safari

I did a website this week for my new book. It looks fine in Safari and Firefox, but not in IE.

www.thegrooveproject.net

You can see where the photos are overlaid on the text and one of the pushpins is out of place. How can I fix this and yet still have the site look correct in Safari and Firefox?

I fixed the problem on “The Car” and “The Purpose” pages by inserting the graphics into the text box, but that fix will not work everywhere.

Thanks for any help.

This is a classic problem with IE and Windoze rendering text at different sizes.

In Safari if you go to the View menu and Tick "Zoom Text Only " and then increase the text size by using Apple+ you will see exactly the same thing.

What version of FW are you using? 5.5 gives you the Relative Page Layout action that will sort this.

Earlier versions of FW and you can use a Table based layout or the so called Box Model method to sort it.

I will upgrade to 5.5

I would like to avoid tables as I understand they are not searchable by Google.

Thanks for the help.

NOT true!

Tables are perfectly searchable.

Dave’s right, they’re searchable. The problem is they don’t make a lot
of semantic sense to search engines plus they require excessive code
and they’re not accessibility-friendly.

And something else I see.

The text ‘The Groove Project’ over the home page pic is fuzzy round the edges. Your anti-aliasing needs tweaked. It may be set to Auto but you may be best to choose another colour. Tricky when the text runs over the pic and the white background.

I do not know how to adjust the aliasing, but the text does not really have to be over the photo.

Up to you - it doesn’t look that bad!

Just suggesting a possible improvement.

The big improvement was going on spell check.

The Groove Project text could be made a PNG (select it and change in the third tab of the inspector) as it is a gif at the moment which is causing the the anti-aliasing / pixelated edges I think.
