    Mac/PC display problems

    hi, i'm a beginner web developer. I use dreamweaver mx 2004. The problem I have is when I built my website, the browsers in Mac shows that it looks perfectly fine. However, when viewing on a PC through internet explorer and others, there is a major difference where i see white spaces and lines where there shouldnt be in between slices (images). I really need to fix this but dont know how to, if anyone can tell me if this is something i need to script in dreamweaver or some come i can just insert to make it look alright in a pc that would be great.

    Post your page so we can take a look at it.
    What browser were you using on the Mac? Safari?

    Looks ok in Fx/PC for me but you can't expect consistency without a doctype.

    doctype

    Oh, now I see two problems. In IE you get the gap under the buttons. In Fx the rollovers don't work.
