  • Mac vs. PC for websites

    I have just helped my friend create her portfolio website. It looked perfect on our Macs. Her mom viewed it on a PC and said its all jumbled. What is the deal? How can I fix it? The site is www.alphakt.com. Can anyone help?!?

    I haven't actually seen it bc I only own a Mac. So anyone who has a PC...describe it or maybe send me a screen shot? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
    Kari

    You could try this site to get a preview of what it will look like in other browsers.

      It looks remarkably like Firefox's SERVER NOT FOUND error page

          I am viewing it in Firefox on my Mac and I don't see what you mean?

            http://www.alphakt.com/Profile.html has three sets of width and height tags for each element block.

            Why are you using tables inside of divs when you only have one line of text. Some even have nested tables with one line of code in a span tag.

                  yeah, I got that jumbled text too. I'm on a PC using firefox.

                  As far as I know designing websites with a PC is usually the best way to go because most people are on PC's.

                  It's always good to design your site with as many browsers open to check it as possible. I always design with IE and Firefox open to check the site throughout each step.

                      view the source code of the website. There's redundant code that it causing the problem.

                          I am looking at the source code. I am confused as to what I am looking for?

                            Also, you can try validating the code. That may show up the problems.

                                I'll mention too that most stock image EULA's usually forbid use in logos. Might want to check your stock image license before proceeding.

                                Welcome to the forum. As far as I know, sharing a link to your portfolio is certainly ok. However, advertising links are not ok.
