I have a question about a website I've been building this summer, would someone take a look at the site / issue?
The site here http://www.jabsgallery.info and Ive attached a zip with the index and external style sheet inside.

The issue im having is a size or resolution problem. When the site is viewed in firefox it look good fits nicely,
and when viewed in safari or IE it's too large. I've validated the css and html at w3 and still nothing.

here is the file 2883_bassettswebsite.zip

Help plaese?

thanx JAB

IE 8 may be setting a higher default zoom level than 100. You can check in your settings / zoom dialogue.

Does this help, from
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/287975/why-does-everything-seem-bigger-i...

" It is probably related to your DPI setting of your windows desktop.
See this article http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc849094.aspx on the subject.

Excerpt from article:

"Scaling the Web

By default, Internet Explorer 8 will zoom the content of a Web page to match your Windows DPI Scaling settings. (This is a change from Internet Explorer 7, which did not zoom to match Windows DPI Scaling settings.) For example, if you set the DPI Scaling to 120 DPI, Internet Explorer 8 will zoom the content of a Web page by 125%, because scaling is done relative to 96 DPI, and 120/96 equals 1.25, or 125%. This is reflected in the Zoom UI in the bottom-right corner of the browser window:"

OK even after allowing for IE8 resizing it looks like there is an issue on IE.

To debug, two strands might be worthwhile :
make a very simple page with just some text and a simple image, and see if you get the same issue
you have a lot of javascript in your troublesome page - including functions called something like startIeFix()and endIeFix() ; would it be an idea to comment out all the script elements - or disable javascript in your IE - and retest the page, to see if the problem is originating with the javascript ? If it is, you could try putting th escript elements back one at a time, to see which is causing the issue ...
