    Across all browsers?
    What do you do to make sure your site(s) look good across all browsers?

    I've installed every browser available, and when I develop something new I'll run it through each browser to make sure it looks good.

    Scott, you test the site in about seven different browsers or so?

    What if your design looks good in lets say Firefox and Opera but "breaks" in MSIE? How do you backtract to figure out want went wrong in the design so it didn't display as intended?

    Since I run OS X I only have about 5 browsers to test. Unfortunately IE is discontinued for Mac so I'm out of luck when it comes to fully testing it. Usually I'll just have to debug when I find something that looks strange in another browser. It might involve adding borders to some tables to make things more obvious. Sometimes I run into problems where Firefox uses too large of an input box, but it's really hard to say one clear way to indentify the problem. That just comes down to your problem solving skills

    I have a site constructed with lots of CSS that looks great in Firefox & Opera but when I look at it in IE the side navigationals sink to the bottom -- doesn't look right. I am not sure why it would look great in Firefox but not IE -- that's one reason to promote Firefox

    Sounds like you're trying to do something IE doesn't support or you've got some sort of syntax error that IE doesn't like. It really could be anything... I suggest tweaking your CSS so you can identify and fix the problem in IE.

    Try putting

    clear:both;

    in your CSS...
    Either in the Navigation Bar itself.. or the div tag it is in...

    Try

    clear:both;

    in all the divs...

    But I would make sure it looked good in IE since that is the most used browser...

    I agree with Addhandler. You have something that needs to be cleared, or you may be running into an issue with the way the IE renders padding. When ever possible avoid using padding and if you really need it use "em" as your measurement this gives you the best chance of consistency across browsers.
