On a web site I have just done - I use layers to position the text and images.

I get some reports that "on some machines" the text rides over the images.

Why does this happen and how can it be corrected? Any advice appreciated :)

You are using absolute-positioned divs. Try setting the font-size fixed to a particular pixel value. I higly recommend installing FireFox browser on your computer,, so that you can test your web pages in more then one browser.

BTW it happens in FireFly, Mozilla.

This could be because you have overlapping layers.  I dont know the exact data, but I think that this is not widely execpted yet.  Also you have a couple of empty layers.  

I would also suggest using  a better method of wraping text around images (this would help a couple of the images over text problems)

I like the site though.
