Table shiftiing

Hi,

I am desiging a website, and I use the same layout for all the pages.

Some of the pages, when I nav around, the tables shift, but when I press F5, they all appear normal.  Anyone could help??

Also, In some pages, again, when I nav around, some of the texts are underlined (I did not do that), when I click on that, it takes me to the search engine for that word.  However, after pressing F5, those underlines are gone.


Strange...  Please help..Thanks

YOu need to post some code or a link to the site, please.

Also -- what do you mean by "nav around"? And what browsers/browser versions/operating systems are you using?

Sounds like the Smart Tag from Office XP. You may need to upgrade your browser:
Version 6.00.2479.0006 included Advanced options to Enable Smart tags and Show Office XP smart tags. Smart tags were removed from the final released versions of Internet Explorer 6 based on customer feedback.

This could be because some pages show a vertical scrollbar while others don't, but a link to the pages with the probelm would certainly help :-)

Well, if you're using Office to build Web pages, that's a fair amount of the problem right there... ;-)

Find yourself a good text editor (heck, even Notepad, even though it's pretty a tragic excuse for a text editor) and learn some HTML. It's not rocket science or anything -- heck, even I know some.

(Note to self: F5 is apparently an alias for refresh in MSIE. I always used CTRL+R myself, but then I use IE as little as possible. Heh.)

And somebody please do explain to me what "nav around" is supposed to mean exactly, because I'm a native English-speaker, I've been online for 7 or 8 years now, using computers on and off since 1977 and professionally for about the last ten years, and I have NEVER heard that expression before. Not once.

>>nav around
I believe they just mean that as they "navigate around" the site (by clicking on various links, etc.) the placement of a certain table on the page shifts to the left/right depending on the page they're on...

>>if you're using Office to build Web pages
Actually Office XP includes a "Smart Tag" option that effects how certain elements are treated - including Internet Explorer. You can include this meta tag in your pages to remove the automatic underlining:
<meta name="MSSmartTagsPreventParsing" content="TRUE">
Microsoft introduced these smart tags to new releases of Internet Explorer - they basically hijack your page content looking for keywords to turn into links...
Note: this is just a thought - it may not be what's causing mcrmg's underlining.

Which browser are you using?

seanpowellCommented:
You have a vertical scrollbar on the Clients Page - you don't have one on the Contact page. If you're using Opera or similar, it's because it calculates the width of the window without the scrollbar, and so the centering gets shifted.

Okay - sorry - just add this to the head of your documents:

<style type="text/css">
<!--
body { margin:0px; padding:0px; }
//-->
</style>

Then it's probably something that Geocities is doing. You've got all these scripts at the bottom - it says to remove it, so try that...

seanpowellCommented:
You don't see the code, or you don't see the underlines?

mcrmgAuthor Commented:
dont see the underline (just as normal pages)

but in my local, the first time the page displayed, it shows that underlinem but after pressing F5, it is gone.

seanpowellCommented:
That's very odd - it's certainly not showing up on your live site - and we're both using the same browser version. I would try deleting all that code anyways to see what happens...
