Website work across all browsers?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

I'm fairly new to web design and the new site I'm working on looks awesome in safari but when I open it in internet explorer it's all screwed up. I didn't know if there was an easy way to make everything the same across the board?

 

If not, what is the easiest/best way to do go about making sure they are all the same?

 

Thank You!

Only through experience can you know all the tiny details you need to make sure things work OK on all browsers.

 

The first thing is to make sure your HTML is valid in the W3C validator: http://validator.w3.org

 

If you're using HTML 5, be sure to use what's called HTML5 shiv to make Internet Explorer recognize the new elements.

 

After that, most of it is about using the right techniques to lay out the page. Use margin, padding, width and float to position things instead of setting position to absolute.
