I have a problem with my website displaying properly. On my desktop PC it looks fine but on my laptop everything goes wrong. I think it is a resolution thing but don't know for a fact. Images are showing in the wrong place and tables are distorted etc

any advice would be appreciated :confused: :confused:

also i am using dreamweaver mx

This looks bad in Safari, the graphics are set to be fixed by the look of it while the text is floated, it's just creating a mess when you resize the browser window

Almost all your tables are width %. This means they are a % of whatever the screen size is. Looks great if you resize or change your screen resolution perfectly to fit your site. Otherwise it's a complete mess. Suggest you looked at px widths instead to get a more 'fixed' layout when the browser resizes.

and for "experts within the web" you shouldn't be using tables for layout anyway! stay away from absolutely positioned elements as well, if you can help it ;)

Dave is right Bradster. You should be building sites with CSS to offer 'pro' services.
