    guys:
    please take alook at my site at http://www.rightway.info
    the right hand menu on my browser stops at links and the calendar categories etc all show up at the bottom of the page. My friend on a mac said it looks fine to him but it looks awful to me. Please take a look and tell me what i can do to correct this. Im using Internet Explorer.

    Well if you upgraded to Firefox you would be a lot safer. Plus you would nt have to look at the mess :) Good luck.

    When I View Source, I see this:
    <div class="side">
    <li id="links">Links

    • Bill O'Reilly

    • Yet in your css, I see no 'side' class.
      Unless I've missed something obvious, why not edit - I assume index.php - and remove that class. Not the links, just
      <div class="side">
      and
      </div>
      from around it ?

    That did it! Thanks so much podz....Looking at the site do you have any other suggestions? I was trying to make the actual post text a bit smaller and put a thin box around each article. Would that be difficult?

    .post {
    border: 2px solid #000;
    }
    The above will box an entry in.
    p, li, .feedback {
    font: 90%/125% Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
    letter-spacing: 120%;
    }
    Change the 90% to 80% or 70% ?
    There's stuff here you might find useful too:
