Your link to the stylesheet might be an outdated one. From what I've seen, the stylesheet is loaded from this link: "rcpafirm09232012/Styles/Site.css".

Solution would be to overwrite that directory file in your server from the file you're running in your local. It helps to check also the location of the Site.css file from your local by using the View Page Source in the browser to locate your local files.

You have a number of Mac fonts listed first in your CSS.  I can guarantee that your page will look different on Macs and PCs when you do that.  Looks like "Helvetica Neue" on my MacBook Pro and Arial on my PC.  Fairly close but not the same.  Looks like you just got started on this.

To DaveBaldwin: I am using the same pc to view the pages (local and host)

To ArmChang: I compare the contents of the css file on the host and the local, they are same

http://rcpafirm.com/rcpafirm09232012/Styles/Site.css
http://localhost:50647/Styles/Site.css

The files at above locations are identical

But the look of the website specially the menu buttons appearance is totally different

In that case then may I ask what browser are you using? If it's IE8 then you need to add "X-UA-Compatible" header or META to force full IE8 standards mode. As Microsoft introduced different rendering modes for local and Internet servers.

Let me know how it goes.

There are no menu buttons in the code at http://rcpafirm.com/ .   If I try http://www.rcpafirm.com/ , I get a 'redirection' error.  You must have a lot going on that isn't showing on the site yet because it takes a long time to load from here.

Maybe you should post a screen shot because I don't see anything that is actually wrong.

There is nothing in your online code to create that look.  It simply isn't there.  There is something different between the codes for the two versions.  You'll have to find it since you are the only one who can see both versions.

I suggest you start with the "View Source" of both versions to eliminate any ASP.NET differences.  Remember the browser only sees the HTML.  Anything that includes runat="server" includes things not seen by the browser.

asp.net puts the compiled version; There may be a difference with the version which decodes and pulls the contents on the local server and the posted server.  That is highly unlikely. So very confused

Like I said, look at the "View Source" for both versions.  For the browser to display something different there must Be something different.
