How's this look in all browsers

Does the horizontal menu on this site look good in all modern browsers? Please click a few menu buttons to make sure the CSS works well.

Looks good in Chrome/Mac.  However, please take a moment to place your url to the validator.  http://validator.w3.org/  There are a few things to tidy up.

You've got an invalid DOCTYPE which throws your site into Quirks more - this leaves your site at the mercy of the individual browser and is much less likely to be consistent across the various platforms.

Sort that out and then run it through the validators (CSS and HTML). That will hilight any glaring errors.

Purely on a subjective note, you've designed your site using tables for layout - not really a modern approach - it was common practice a decade ago, but things have moved on significantly. May be too late to change now, but I'd certainly consider a re-think ;)

Hi Guys,

The cart is from 6 years ago, it's a premade cart. I can't change much. To the best of your ability, please check it in your browsers.

I will see if I can change the doctype at some point. It causes all sorts of issues when I do.

Thanks for your help.
It causes all sorts of issues when I do.

That is because the cart is trash and even 6 years ago I would not consider that code worth using.  It has to uses a non-valid doctype, because if it uses a valid one the browsers puke on some of the code.

That said it appears to work correctly (for now) in latest Chrome, FF, and IE as well as in compatibility mode for IE; but that is more luck than anything else.  It is a ticking time bomb and at any time a new version of a browser could blow it sky high.
