    In an effort to make my band's website compatible with non-IE websites, I
    was informed by this group that I should change my site's doctype from
    "transitional" to "strict". I was then able to clear up some of the major
    layout compatability problems I was having, but now I'm having a few
    'smaller' issues, mostly with regards to trying to set up fixed-width boxes
    using CSS.

    My original "transitional" doctype website, and it's associated stylesheet
    is at:

    My working draft of the "strict" website (and stylesheet) is at:

    There are a few things I need to work out, but I guess I'll point to the
    most obvious one: my navigation bar.
    I'd like to make each link in the bar set to a fixed width of 75px, which
    works great in my original site, but it's not cooperating in the new

    Can anyone help out?

  2. I wouldn't worry about fixing the width of anything if I were you. The
    size of the links will then be free to adjust according to your
    visitors' own preferences. You might want to insert a small gap between
    each one though. It could read 'Home Howsabout Contact' :)
