Hello,

Would be grateful for any advice.

 http://tinyurl.com/86mwtqn

this looks fine in both ie and ff but when its viewed on the latest android
the masterhead area is all falling apart.

this is the masterhead

    <div class="masthead" >
      <div style="padding-top: 12px; ">
        <div style="float:left; width:460px; padding-top:30px;
padding-left:30px;">
          <div>
            <h1>Blasting Shot London</h1>
          </div>
          <div style="font-size:12px;  text-shadow: 2px 2px 3px
#e5e5e5;">Shot Blasting Grit using Shot Blasting Machines by the Shot
Blasting Company</div>
        </div>
        <div style="float:left; width:420px;"> <img
src="css/img/sandblasting/call-shot-blasting.png" alt="Shot Blasting London"
title="Sand Blasting London" style=" margin-left:240px;" /> </div>
      </div>
    </div>



i believe it could be the  float that is causing my misery. can anyone
advise how to correct this...



cheers

Are you using any type of responsive CSS or media queries?

That kind of answered my question.  

For mobile devices and tablets(or different screen resolutions) you really should be using media queries in order to style your site according to the browser resolution.

Take a look here:

Resize your browser and watch how the site responds to the different resolution.

It may not necessarily be the floats.  Floats will expand to the width of the parent unless otherwise specified, like you have here.

Try playing with the widths of the 2 divs inside masterhead

of course but i need to divs to be inside the parent thus set a width for each.
