When viewed in Dreamweaver the form with the words "Salutation*    Mr     etc

is tight under a line with the graphic  Subscribe to the Matrix ... above it.

In Firefox it is a few mm down

In Safari on a Mac it is about 2 or 3 cms down

In Internet Explorer 6 on a PC it is 7 or 8 cms down.

Why?

Is there anything one can do about it?

Thanks.

George

Hi George,

Your site is not passing HTML 4.01 validation (validator.w3.org) and your tables have height's defined.  That combination will produce unpredictable results as the different browsers are going into quirks mode to render the page.  FireFox appears to come the closest to interpreting what you want to do, but this problem is best solved by undefining the height attributes and fix from there.

The better solution is to not use nested tables for layout and instead use CSS...but that can be more trouble than you were looking for.
