layers

On a web site I have just done - www.michaelchevis.com 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 :)

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.

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, http://www.mozilla.org, so that you can test your web pages in more then one browser.
