Newbie here….
What is a good method for dealing with a long list of error messages in DW’s ‘Target Browser Check’ section? It would be nice to be able to print them out to see them better but I have found no way of doing that.

so sorry!
I just noticed that the underlined code shows me all of the errors and I can see them line by line that way. Also found the 'print code' feature.
I'd be smart if I were a 6 yr old.

a better approach after u deal with the validation is actually checking the site in the 'other' browsers.

obviously u cant check every browser on ur pc - so this is where we can help u out ;)

i mainly check in IE 6+ FF 1.5+ Netscape 7.2+ and Safari mac + FF mac.

Hey thanks,
So I’ve been checking the look on FF 1.0.7 & IE 7.
Every looks OK on these browsers but I looked on another computer with IE 6 and there were several display problems.

On the nav menu, there is a gap when the drop down opens. Don’t know why.
The left column seems to overlap the footer. Also, I don’t know why. Neither of these issues appears in my browsers.Any thoughts? Sorry if this is too much info!

I have two css sheets

body {
margin: 0px;
padding: 20px;
background-color:#e2dfa8;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
color: #666666;

text-align: center;
}

#wrapper {
margin: 10px auto;
width: 740px;
border: 1px solid #999999;
background-color: #fff;
text-align:left;
}

text-decoration: none;
