    Problem with text display

    I am using Namo WebEditor and have used a text layer to place some text on the page. In order for the text to look good where its sposed to I have to move the layer around which is fine and in IE/Opera the text looks great yet in Firefox and Chrome the layer seems to move down.

    Is there anything I can do to keep it at the same level in all browsers?

    Hello cooldude,
    I'm sure there is something that can be done to fix it but we'd need to have a look at your code so we know what we're fixing.

    When posting code in the forum, please use the code tags, [code][/code] - available with the # button in the post edit window.
    This will wrap your code in a scroll box which greatly helps the readability of your post.

    A link to the test site is even better.

    You should know that tables are not for layout. Have a look at the link about tables in my signature line.

    You should also know about DocTypes and why you need one. Another link in my signature line.

    Absolute positioning is not the best way to position elements on your site. Have a look at the pitfalls of absolute positioning. It's better to use div elements and position them with floats and margins.

    When you do use ap, making the containing element relative will keep the positioned element in the right place.

    You should also be using linked or attached CSS instead of inline styles. That will be a big help later on.
