      Hello Robert,

      Welcome to the world of webpage design!

      I believe you are referring to "NoteTab Pro" ;-), right? What version of
      browser(s) are you referring to...each one handles HTML, Javascript and
      especially CSS differently...

      First your computer has to have the font you are using installed, so if you
      are using the same computer to design, publish and view your webpage this
      shouldn't be a problem (you might want to check your spelling)...for the
      Garamond font (make sure you are using the actual name of the font exactly
      as it is, and it must be in quotes if there are "spaces" in its name...as
      far as the style sheets problem you just have to learn what works and why
      (see help links reference below)

      I know that you must explicitly state the exact size in Height and Width of
      each and every image you are using...so the above will not work in all
      browsers...I also know that if you save it as a .jpg in a .gif format it
      won't show up and vice versa.

      That's the fun of this work, finding out what works in what browser and what
      you have to do to make it work in all...although "fun" can be quite
      "frustrating" at times B^)

      There are certain things you learn as you go, and to make a checklist for
      each browser variation would prove quite long and ineffective...(it's
      virtually impossible to actually build a working list of all the
      idiosyncracies of each brwoser version). Some websites you might want to
      check out for assistance are www.webreview.com www.webmonkey.com
      www.wdvl.com

      We learn as we go and we go as we learn, it is a never ending process of
      growth and communication...

        DUH! Teach me to read a thread before replying! My only excuse is I'm
        viewing through the web right now, as eGroups has decided it won'T take
        my confirmation e-mail. :-(

        I also completely missed the height/width thing, never even heard of
        that. THanks for the trick!
