I built the site on a Mac and mostly tested with Safari. Firefox and Chrome look virtually identical. When I load the same website in Internet Explorer, everything is a mess (see two attached screenshots for comparison).
It appears the problem is mostly fonts and font sizes. But a small difference in font size can easily cause the whole layout to distort.
For Windows and Internet Explorer, I have a VirtualBox installation of Windows 7. This problem is so bad, I'm wondering if what I am seeing is really what Windows/IE users are seeing. I believe its IE 10 that is installed.
I've been building websites for 15 years, I am not new to this. But I still don't understand how IE can be this far off.
If I change my font sizes so that the layout works in IE, then everything looks ridiculously small in all the other browsers. I can't possibly be the only one trying to deal with these issues... how are others handling it?
Do I need a media query or something for the IE browser? Is there even such a thing?
Any insight or advice would be greatly appreciated.
