Dreamweaver Newbie

I am new to Dreamweaver.  I have built other sites using Frontpage and html.  I have a quick question.  I built my entire site with Dreamweaver on a Vista machine with IE7.   The site looks great!  When I view the site on an XP machine with IE6 the fonts and spacing are wrong.  I thought maybe it was something on my machine, but I went to another Vista pc and it looks great. What am I missing?  I am sure this probably a simple question.  You can view the site at www.asthmanc.com.
Thanks,

Shawn

Hi sc_pantherfan,

You are using an oddball font in the HTML tags:

<font color="#000066" size="3" face="Corbel">

and since "Corbel" is not standard, you get different results depending on which machine you view from.  I'm running Firefox 3 and IE 7 on XP and your site looks awful in both.

There are two ways you can go here.  One is to start using CSS to control the fonts:

<style>
body {
      font-family: corbel, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
}
</style>

The above code sets all fonts in the body to try and use "corbel" and if it is not present, it degrades to arial on the PC and helvetica on the mac.

The second way is to replace all your font faces with the same list above.  This significantly adds to the size of the document and is also deprecated.
