    The http://www.taoofpeace.com/test/index.php home page displays correctly on
    my page regardless if I view it with IE or a Mozilla browser on either my
    laptop or my desktop (1024 x 768). When I viewed this same page on my
    client's LCD monitor the left navigation appears on the top of the page
    until I do a manual refresh ... then it goes where it should.

    I don't want to do this page with tables (yuk!) but would appreciate any
    suggestions on another way to "Style" this page so the navigation appears
    where it should ... every time.

    .....here is the home page code

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    <link type="text/css" media="screen" rel="stylesheet"

    </head>

    ....is it better form to post a link to the CSS or can you pull it from my
    code at the top of the page???? thx in advance for your help!

    Cheers,

    I get the same prob on my desktop IE (XP Sp2 1280x1024 Win) and my computer
    speed is 3.8 gig (but I'm on dialup.) Your page validates, kudos, but
    gives a nasty horizontal scrollbar in Firefox (though not IE). The only
    thing I can say is some redesign is necessary. You _could_ try including
    the css in the page itself (which is what I'd test,) but probably a shot in
    the dark.

    I doubt if tables are the real answer.

    I can't reproduce your problem, but if you would like to fix that nasty bottom
    scrollbar.

    change:
    #largeLogo{
    position:relative;
    top:0px;
    left:500px;
    z-index:2;
    }

    to

    #largeLogo img{
    position:relative;
    top:0px;
    left:500px;
    z-index:2;
    }

    No, I mean put it in the <head> section of the page itself. Maybe time-
    loading plays a part?

    reproduce the issue ....

    I have no ideal, I was not able to reproduce the problem, but it does take care
    of that bottom scroll bar.
