    My website is It looks great on my MAc. but my bro told me it looks messed up on his PC. I got it from opendesigns mediterranean template. The designer said it was a padding issue. Im not a CSS guy really. and i don't have a windows computer to troubleshoot properly. Can anyone tell me why the menu looks so funky in IE? can anyone tell me what exactly to change?

    Read this. IE 6 and under display things differently than other browsers when it comes to adding up padding and margins to the widths of things. A good practice is to set all margins and paddings to default at the beginning of your CSS file and set margins and padding as you go. It solves a lot of issues right off the bat.

    * {
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;

    One suggestion, you might want to take this:

    Los Angeles County Window Cleaning cities and zip codes:
    Acton 93510, Agoura 91301, Agua Dulce, Saugus 91350, Alhambra 91801, 91803 Altadena 91001, Arcadia 91006, 91007, 90071, Arleta 91331, Artesia 90680, Athens 90044, Atwater Village 90039, Avalon 90704, Azusa 91702, Baldwin Hills 90008, Baldwin Park 91706, Bassett 91746, Bel Air Estates 90049, 90077, Bell 90201, Bell Gardens 90201, Bellflower 90706, Beverly Glen 90077, 90210, Beverly Hills 90210, 90211, 90212, Boyle Heights 90033, Bradbury 91010, Brentwood 90049, Burbank 91501, 91502, 91506, 91523, 91510, Calabasas 91302, 91372, Canoga Park 91303, 91304, Canyon Country 91351, Carson 90745, 90746, 90747, Carson 90810, Castaic 91310,91384, Castellemare 90272, Century City 90067, Cerritos 90701, Chatsworth 91311, Cheviot Hills 90064, Claremont 91711, City of Commerce, 90040, Covina 91722, 91723, 91724, Crenshaw 90008, Cudahy 90201, Culver City 90230, 90232, Cypress Park 90065, Diamond Bar 91765, 91789, Dominguez Hills, 90747, Downey 90240, 90241, 90242, Downtown Los Angeles window cleaning 90013, 90014, 90015, 90017, 90021, Eagle Rock 90041, East Los Angeles 90022 ,90023

    and make it into some kind of searchable database. I just know that I'm not going to sit here and look through every single line just to see if my city/zipcode is in there.

    Now in IE6, I can see what you mean by having some kind of problems with it looking bad. You might just want to look at having some kind of background image/background color for your menus, or just pull you menus closer together. IE7 and FF3 all look good though. Looks like you're on the right track with the site. Good luck with it.
