>>>>>>. And how can I check how my page looks in the major browsers, and fix it if there is a problem
A general thing to do is - as you make a new page, at every significant change, view the page in FF and IE - don't wait until a page is done.
You may do this 10-50 times for each page you write.
Another ting is to make it look right in FF, then tweak it to work in IE.
Dreamweaver is good for this - design, hit F12 for one browser, C-F12 for the other.

Hello, Geoffrey james.
What does it mean "not rendering properly"? You should ask the person that told you so. The verb "render" is used in connection with the job that a browser does of displaying a web page in the monitor of your computer. It is used because a browser doesn't simply "show" you a page. It has to interpret "how" it should be displayed. That is why different browsers can show different views of the same page: they interpret different things. However, keep in mind that 95% of all Internet users utilize Microsoft Internet Explorer.

thanks web experts, your help is always valuable.
The chat who said he had a problem is using firefox 18.104.22.168 and the main content of the page was over towards the left and had run into a panel on the left hand side.
Is this version very common and should i be really concerned.
He also said that he veiwed my site with his 'side bar off, but if he puts his side bar on its better'....whats a side bar?

Always bear in mind that if your site has problems in a browser, a large proportion of users will simply give up and go elsewhere. Browser statistics rarely tell the whole story.
