View Full Version : IE display issues with different resolutions.

I'm having a display issue with different resolutions on different PCs/Laptops.

This is difficult to explain. I have attached 3 screenshots, one is from a 15in laptop running IE6 with a res of 1024x786. One is from a 17in widescreen laptop running IE7 with a res of 1152x864 and the last is from a PC running IE6 with a screen res of 1152x864. (not sure of the screen size as it is at the clients, either 17in or 19in)

Okay the issue as you will see is the display on the PC.

I have also attached the code for the page and my CSS file as txt files.

Can anyone shed some light as to why there is issues with the display on the PC.

Thanks, Paul

Still not got to the bottom of this but have just noticed something that may help.

The screen shots from the laptops imported at 72dpi as you would expect but the PC screen shot imported at 96dpi.

The form box is suppose to be 92px high which it is at 72dpi but at 96dpi it makes it 124px which would push it down and ruin the display.

Only a thought, can anyone shed some light on this as I need to get this sorted asap.

Hey Tux, can you give us a little more detail on what it is you are wanting to accomplish with your design?

Are you wanting a completely fluid layout or a fixed width?
Fluid layout to a maximum width?
