    Exclamation Text over-run in FFox. NOW SORTED.

    http://www.exitfegs.co.uk/Sources.html

    If you look at this site in FFox, there is a text spill in the middle div.
    In Opera there is a mis-alignment and change of hover color at the bottom of the middle column, the last four on the menu.

    It appears OK with IE7. Help would be appreciated.

    You've got columns that are based on percentages (three at 32% each), but inside each one you have containers that are based on fixed widths (270px for the each <ul>). So what's happening is when 32% of the browser window gets smaller than 270px, the content pops out of the container.

    So, change this:

    Code:
    #links2 ul {
      padding-left: 16px;
      margin-left: 16px;
      color: #fff;
      font: 900 10px/1.4 "lucida sans", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
      width: 270px;
    }
    …to this:

    Code:
    #links2 ul {
      padding-left: 16px;
      margin-left: 16px;
      color: #fff;
      font: 900 10px/1.4 "lucida sans", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
    }
    …and do the same for the other "#links ul" combos.

    Hope that helps…

    Good morning Frank,
    Look at the width you've given your lists:
    Code:
    #links ul {
      padding-left: 16px;
      margin-left: 16px;
      color: #fff;
      font: 900 10px/1.4 "lucida sans", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
      width: 270px;
    }
    #links2 ul {
      padding-left: 16px;
      margin-left: 16px;
      color: #fff;
      font: 900 10px/1.4 "lucida sans", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
      width: 270px;
    }
    #links3 ul {
      padding-left: 16px;
      margin-left: 16px;
      color: #fff;
      font: 900 10px/1.4 "lucida sans", verdana, arial, sans-serif;
      width: 270px;
    }
    I've been running Vista Ultimate x64 since the early beta days. I think it's leaps and bounds beyond XP - I love it.

    [edit... haha - too slow

    Thank you both. Done it. Mucked up the lay-out.
    Back to the drawing board.

    That only messes up the layout when the browser gets too narrow, right?

    If so, you just need a min-width to make sure it never gets too narrow. If that's not it then...

    It might just be invalid:

    Code:
    </li></ul>
              <li class="bullet">
    That's in several places in your document where the links stay red. It's missing the opening <ul>.

    I am having trouble validating the code. Most of the errors are in the lists. But when I correct them, the site looks a mess.

    I have opened a seperate post about this.

    Thanks for your help.
