Strange Behaviour with CSS Body Margin

P: n/a
ace
Hi guys,

i'm new with CSS and just recently doomed into redoing my site due to
some hard to explain incident.
i didn't realize the difficulty inherent in doing a 3 column CSS.

in any case, i managed to do that, not exactly a full 3 column as it is
as much a mod on an existing 2 column design. Frankly, i very rarely
see anyone using similar layout, and haven't seen anyone implementing
the same technique using CSS (most i seen use tables).

I understand that it scrolls at 800px which is probably not ideal. but
my main question is, - this is actually specific to blogger but perhaps
you guys can help, how is it that the template page looks different on
the offline file that i'm working on to the one online?? offline, it
adds an extra 20px margin so the columns are misaligned. online
however, everything looks good.

since it currently renders okay in everything but IE5.5, this isn't
really a major problem, but i'd like to know what can i do to maybe
improve the CSS design and make it more efficient. Really sorry if this
is slightly out of topic.

Regards,
ace

URL?

I was going to suggest a screw-up with capital letters in a file name,
but that would generally cause the opposite effect - OK locally, but
something missing online.

the design doesn't use any image whatsoever except for the background.

thanks

With 303 validation errors it's remarkable that it looks right under any
conditions whatever. (I think that may be a new record ...)

LOL

where's the validation you use? (i think many of it will be the blogger
specific tags although there are some crazy tricks i did to make it
work). sorry, i'm new here :D

Hmmm... You're using google groups to post, but not to search its vast
newsgroup archives for info? It would probably take you about 10 seconds
to find the answer you seek...

bergamot, save your breath, i was asking stephen specifically what
validation he's using to check since it does return different count
(the CSS is blogspot based so the code will return different validation
for the blogspot specific tags).

yeah, i'm dumb, and the internet is full of dumb people making dumb
comments. sorry to waste your time.
