    Smile Please help, Page layout issues

    Hi guys, hoping you can help me out here...


    I'm starting a little website up to sell, at 1st guitar strings, hopefully expanding nicely. It is called http://plecpicker.com

    I have had web coding/program coding experience, though not used these skills for a few years now.

    But that is one thing i want to 'get back'.


    The problem is the layout of the page changes in every browser, even when it looks right in IE and FF on my laptop, i upload it and its all wrong again

    My coding is amateurish and very... table happy.

    I just want my page to look the same whatever browser

    I mean my site looks better on my iPhone than IE!

    Help me out, what do i need to look into?

    Thanks in advance, PlecPicker Jones

    I'd suggest reviewing some HTML and CSS basics first:
    http://www.w3schools.com/html/
    http://www.w3schools.com/css/
    This will allow you to control the elements on the page better.
    Then, validate your code as you build the page... Now your biggest error is a missing DOCTYPE
    Validate your web page here:
    http://validator.w3.org/
    Why do you need a DOCTYPE declaration?
    http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp
    The way your page is laid out now... I think it's WAY too wide.... using 100%. I'd suggest you use a more standard and narrower layout, especially for mobile devices. One common scheme is called the 960 grid
