Help me with this CSS on MacIntosh and I will immortalise you in Cambridge

I am building a site for my college and it looks OK on PCs (IE,
Netscape, Opera, not Mozilla though), but the page is displaced to the
bottom of the screen on a Mac.

Probably something simple, but I don't know where to look for
information.

If you help me, I'll put your name on the site credits.

See the site at www.ckno.org

Cheers,

Denis

I'm surprised more browsers don't have issues with it.

It was not so simple to find the cause, that's fer shur. IOW, the code
is sub-optimal (to put it nicely). It needs a diet, among other things.
See the site at www.ckno.org


<TD id="teaser"... >

#teaser {
float:left; margin-bottom:0px;
}

Floating table cells? I can't even imagine how it's supposed to render.
Both mozilla and MacIE gave it a shot, though, and you know what
ugliness came out of it. ;)

This is how it looks in Mozilla 1.6 on Windows :-)

Your first row asks for a three-column-span wide cell of 165px width
followed by a five-column-span 627px wide cell: eight columns in total.

Your next row only asks for seven columns. Try changing the first row's
second cell to COLSPAN=4.

Then ditch the tables and do it properly.

Wa! Right on!

It did the trick on MacIE and did it also on Mozilla. The last trouble
now is with Netscape on Mac. Many thanks for this help! I admit that a
diet is badly needed for this code, I will get to it soon. Thank you
kchayka for finding the culprit in the CSS mess and thank you Mark
Tranchant for noting the discrepancy in the number of cells of the
first two rows and thank you Arne. I'll write to you for precise names
for mentions.

I've read about working without tables, but in this case, any
suggestion on how to replace them?

A keen learner,

Denis

Thank you for finding that one. It is most appreciated. How may I join
you personnally?

If you mean to "immortalis e" me, then it's not necessary. Besides, I'd
really rather not have my name attached to that code while it is in its
current ishy state.

But, if you want to pay me to help clean up the rest of the code, that's
something else. ;)

Might be the case. I have been asking around for a hand. It would come
from my pockets though and not from the college, so it might not be
exactly the Klondike ;) We would have to see what we can accomplish.
At the moment, everything seems alright on PC (IE, Netscape, Mozilla,
Opera). On Mac, the subpages on IE don't display their header
properly, the text being misaligned. Netscape on Mac shows more
problems. I can indeed get rid of lots of CSS code I ended up not
using. For more severe clean up, I was going to postpone it, but I
would certainly consider a suggestion if you have one.
