Hello experts.
I have a table with three thumbs and the big image in the center.
with a script i change the big image when rollover(mouseover) the thumbs.
I use div tag for the big image.
I have noticed that the images appear in different postion in firefox and explorer.
How can i solve the problem so that the images will be shown in the same place in all the browsers
here is the code
<script type="text/javascript">
function changeImage(obj){
                
                document.getElementById("imageField5").src = obj.value;
                
        }
function MM_showHideLayers() { //v9.0
  var i,p,v,obj,args=MM_showHideLayers.arguments;
  for (i=0; i<(args.length-2); i+=3) 
  with (document) if (getElementById && ((obj=getElementById(args[i]))!=null)) { v=args[i+2];
    if (obj.style) { obj=obj.style; v=(v=='show')?'visible':(v=='hide')?'hidden':v; }
    obj.visibility=v; }
}
</script>
<style type="text/css">
<!--
#apDiv1 {
        position:absolute;
        width:298px;
        height:223px;

        visibility: visible;
        left: 566px;

#apDiv2 {

Hello,

there is an error here: see the > in the src

<input name="imageField5" type="image"  id="imageField5" src="images/Photo2>"  width="298" height="223" /> </div>

----

the position problem might be fixed by adding

* {
margin:0;padding:0;
}

to your styles

Cheers
Steggs

Hi Steggs.
Here is the new CSS:
<style type="text/css">
<!--
#apDiv1 {
      position:absolute;
      width:298px;
      height:223px;
      z-index:1;
      visibility: visible;
      left: 584px;
      top:220px;
    margin:0;padding:0;

}
#apDiv2 {
      position:absolute;
      width:298px;
      height:223px;
      z-index:2;
      visibility: hidden;
      left: 584px;
      top:220px;
      margin:0;padding:0;
}
#apDiv3 {
      position:absolute;
      width:298px;
      height:223px;
      z-index:3;
      visibility: hidden;
      left: 584px;
      top:220px;
      margin:0;padding:0;
}
-->
</style>
but the problem is still there.
Can i have in my css text the possibility for IE to use another style?

padding:0;margin;
}

#apDiv1 {
      position:absolute;

      height:223px;

Hi  Steggs.
Here is the type:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
I have tried the new css and the result is he same.
To have the same result in explorer i must change the css to:
left: 570px;
top:225px; for each #apdiv

Hi Steggs.
(the page is not online)
I tried the validator.org and it shows me that i have no doctype.
The problem was that i had the doctype not in the beginning of the page but after all cfinclude files,cfparam ,and queries right before the head.
Now i did change this and i did solve anothe problem but not this.I also change the position of the page to the left as you told me
* {
padding:0;margin;
}
I would be happy if you could help me more.
If not i will accept the last answer
