    You can get if right from the webserver yourself...

    Current look here (Firefox 2.x / x86_64):

    I'm thinking its a firefox issue, because everyone in my clan with IE seems to see it fine, but with firefox isnt.

    I don't know how to fix it though..

    It's not a firefox issue, its a design issue. The entire website is full of broken tags.

    There isn't even an <html>, <head>, or <body> tag (Although there is a </body> and </html> at the end).

    There is no indentation, which makes it very difficult to read. The end of the page features several </div>'s which could probrably be condensed. The div with class "News" is missing the closing angle bracket.

    The div for "news" has the </div> right after ~Mash.

    All the /divs at the bottom are ending divs, 1 ends page div, one ends main div, other ends the navigation bar div. I added the HTML at the top, and changed a few margins, maybe now it will look a little better..? =P

    The opening tag isn't closed properly.

    But even if you close that one, it'll still look completely broken.

    To make it more easy make your homepage with Frontpage there is almost evrything you need (maybe you use it now)but it can be good help and sometimes you need a java script to show the right size for almost all browser so not be so broken in etc Opera and almost have 1024x768 resoulation this days.. When I see your html from your page looks (sry) real broken on the frontpage and the browser I use.
    Well its not so easy from beginning but you learn evry time something new..
    And keep trying. So try with Microsoft Frontpage it good for beginner but even after its a great help..

    Frontpage is crap, he just need to remove the broken tags. and maybe use CSS to place the images instead of Div

    Frontpage has a nasty habit of generating broken HTML code that will only render correctly in Internet Explorer.

    It's the perfect tool for the HTML illiterate who wants to design his own Geocities-like website, but of no real use for doing serious site design or maintenance. Just avoid it.

    I don't know about frontpage but I use dreamweaver. I use the coding style only though, since it doesn't render anything correctly. It doesn't render like IE or firefox... Half the time it just puts boxes around your code to show you have something that it doesn't know how to handle :rolleyes:

    The syntax highlighting is what I use it for. Unlike free text editors like Notepad++, it shows differen't options as you're typing the CSS, and automatically closes tags when you type </

    Anyway, thats probrably going off-topic. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and software, so it doesn't matter. As long as you can make it work in IE6 and Firefox you're good to go.

    Okay Knights you basicly need to end all the started tags, and remove the tags that you don't need. and make it more readable, it really helps.


    HTML:
    <HTML>
    
    <head>
    
    <title>.::Beg for mercy::.</title>
    
    </head>
    
    <Body>
    
    <p> Beg for mercy owns</p>
    
    <a> img src="Whatever.jpg" </a>
    
    </body>
    
    </HTML>

    Actually no.

    You're combining two of the tags together.

    For an image:

    PHP:
    <img src="/images/google.gif" />
    For a hotlink:
    PHP:
    <a href="www.google.com">Google</a>
    For a hotlinked image:
    PHP:
    <a href="www.google.com"><img src="/images/google.gif" /></a>
    You only put the /> at the end of the opening tag if the tag has no closing tag.

    For example, there is no need for a </img> tag. Although most browser's won't care, perhaps if you use a strict doctype... Thats beyond me, though.
