Why Templates text looks uggly in Internet Explorer ?

Hi folks,
I´m doing a kind of a job that will make use of the iWeb templates. It will be easier for the task.
The problem is that most of the audience will navigate to the site by IE (as almost 80% of the planet does, unfortunetly ... lol). Right now I´m doing a test in front of a PC using XP and IE6. The text of the site looks very, very uggly.
As I´m a mac user for a long time and work with good computers (1 Mac Pro and 1 MacBook Pro) I guess I´m used to "good image".
On iWeb templates many different fonts are used, probably fonts that are not web safe as I have read through this forum, right ?
The resolution of the monitor that I´m doing this test is not too bad (1024 x 768), so it should looks ok, right ?
Checking the folders contents of the site when it is "saved to a folder" before changing text of the pages, I could noticed that most of the contents (paragraphs and texts) are .png files. Images ! Is it a way and the only way to make texts and paragraphs look nice in Internet Explorer ?
By the way, is it a safe font size for IE or for general internet ?
Thanks in advance ....

The rule in your CSS that's causing the squishing is this one:
.right_side_text {
    letter-spacing: 0;    line-height: 5px;
    margin: auto;
    padding: 0 0 0 20px;
I don't think that you need margin: auto
It's easy to test it in Firefox using the Firebug plugin.  You can edit the CSS "live."  However, it's not so easy to test it in IE so I'm not sure what will happen there if you edit it.

  • My website looks different in internet explorer.

    Greetings and thanks in advance for great service that we provide
    I created a website in iweb www.webworldpr.com in Firefox looks good in Internet Explorer looks different. I can do. I would like to know is web site maestro can solve this problem.

    The iWeb for Musicians website is optimized with Web SIte Maestro and appears to work OK in IE 7 & 8. If I look at it using Safari User Agent the background image drops out etc.
    The latest version of WebCrusher has this....
    "iWeb websites are known for their incompatibility with Internet Explorer. We tested hundreds of iWeb sites and came up with a step by step guide to making your iWeb site work with Internet Explorerand built this functionality into WebCrusher."
    I do have WebCrusher but I haven't tested this feature as I don't have a PC running WIndows anymore.
    The only way I can think that I could help you out here is if you send me a copy of a Domain file or the folder of published files and I'll run it through the app to see if it fixes your problem before you have to think about buying it.

  • Why does my website look different in Internet Explorer

    Hello there I'm currently working on an eportfolio for school, however when using internet explorer my navigation bars look like this
    However in google chrome it looks like this
    Please help me I used cs6 and this is my website http://jacks-eportfolio.site90.net/
    Please let me know.

    It depends how much you want to learn about html and css.
    If you're not all too interested/worried about web design in general (not really planning to become a pro web designer), you're fine with the current layout. It functions and isn't going to hurt you financially if it breaks  under certain settings.
    If you do have an interest in professional web design, you really should learn to code before you "learn Dreameaver". That way you can skip all of the traps built into it for novice designers (especially APDivs).
    Take some time to run the tutorials for HTML and CSS here: http://www.w3schools.com
    That will give you a lot of the basics.
    Once you have that under your belt, here are some more links (blatently taken from Nancy O's posts)...

  • Unable to use all the feature of my email service (Juno on the web) like; font size/color, bolding, italics, highlighting etc why? Those features work through Internet Explorer but not Firefox.

    When I go to my Juno on the web through Firefox, I am unable to use the tool features such as:
    Font size / Color
    just to name a few. Yet when I bring it up through Internet Explorer these features work, plus the way Firefox reads my Juno the tabs are distorted (the page is not formatted correctly, I contacted Juno they said I should contact my modem company AT& T they said no so you are my last resort.. Please help resolve my issue, THANK YOU in advance for assisting with this matter.

    It is up to Juno to enable Midas, the Rich Text Editor which is built into Firefox, with one little line of code on every web page that has RTE for IE. There's nothing that you can do to turn that feature on your self, it has to be coded on each web page that has Rich Text Editing.
    http://www.mozilla.org/editor/midas-spec.html <br />
    Their ignorance probably lies with their staff programmers only knowing how to do it for IE ''(their training and certificates are probably from the Microsoft cabal)'', and not realizing that Gecko and WebKit apps each have their own Rich Text Editor's, which require their own small line of code to enable those Editor's.

  • JPEG Export Looks Saturated in Internet Explorer

    I see this question in many forums and online but without a solution.
    JPEG exports (sRBG) look overly saturated when viewed in Internet Explorer browser, including when uploading/viewing in Facebook, etc, etc.  In other words, the colors looks different between Lightroom and Internet Explorer.  (Colors looks the same between Lightroom and Photoshop though.)
    As point of reference, when you download a sample JPEG image from Canon EOS's website (used to show sample images from their cameras) you see that those images also use sRGB profile.  They also look exactly the same no matter how you view them (Lightroom, Photoshop, Internet Explorer, Safari, etc.).
    What is Lightroom doing to photos upon export to JPEG and you need Lightroom or Photoshop to see the same colors?
    I saw some talk about it had to do with Lightroom presets and that you had to zero those out?  Any ideas from Windows users?

    Have you got Firefox or Safari on your machine?  In which case, how do the images look in either of those browsers?  Or, if you're using Windows 7, how do the images look in Windows photo viewer?
    Also, can you say what monitor you are using please?
    I think it might be a colour management issue.  Internet Explorer is not colour managed (not even IE9), Lightroom and Photoshop are colour managed, so is Windows 7 photo viewer (but not the XP equivalent), so are Firefox and Safari (but not Chrome).  When there's a difference between how something looks in an non-colour-managed program and colour-manged programs then it's worth checking for colour management issues. 
    If your monitor has a wider gamut than sRGB, then you would expect IE9 and other non-managed programs to look over-saturated. 

  • TS4022 Why does my icloud open in internet explorer when it is not my main browser?

    Why does icloud open in internet explorer when I use Google as my main browser? I did something to make it happen and can't find how to change it back.

    Hey man I was having the same problem and I found the answer.... Im going to put the steps you have to follow.
    1.Open www.icloud.com on your Internet Explorer and if you're signed in you have to sign out.
    2. Open www.icould.com on your Google Chrome and then sign in and click on the box that says "stay signed in" or something like that.
    3. Try to open icloud the normal way you do it and it has to open on Chrome.
    This worked for me, hopefully it works for you man, let me know.

  • Why Can't Safari do what Internet Explorer does in Windows

    Why can't Safari developers fix Safari and the mac os to run Sirius Satellite stream the way in which Internet Explorer runs it. I had to download Firefox and run Sirius from it because Safari and Snow Leopard won't run Sirius. If Apple wants to be the operating system of choice then it has to offer what IE offers with Windows.

    Hello Arthur:
    Is there a question there, or are you just pontificating? Anyone who suggests that IE is superior to Safari should migrate back to the "PC" world.
    The problem you pose is a Sirius problem, not a Safari issue.

  • Lumia 710. why can't I just close internet explore...

    I've bought a lumia 710 a month a go, and i'm pretty happy with it, but i have a question: why there is no way to close the internet Explorer app with a single touch? The only way to close de app is by pushing the back button, but this is really anoying if you have went trough a lot of pages... If there is another way please tell me, and if there isn't... Well i think it should be!

    You may try using the tabs when you go to IE > (...) as I think it's more convenient.

  • I don't use Internet Explorer only Firefox why am I seeing things about Internet Explorer ???

    I deleted Internet Explorer from my programs due to only using Firefox and Aol for my mail and email address but I am still seeing things that pertain to Internet explorer like my mail box shows outlook express when it should be and show aol. And I have 2 adobe players showing on my add-ons one is adobe player 11 active-x and adobe player 11 plugin, should I have both ???

    A version of IE is included with Windows, and although you can make it hard to find, you can't actually remove it completely, or much of Windows would stop working correctly. I suggest not trying to root it out completely.
    You might not need the ActiveX version of Flash if you do not use IE. But consider this: Some third party programs display HTML content (e.g., help and tutorials) using the hidden components of IE, and if those programs want to display Flash media, they will need the ActiveX version of Flash. So as long as it keeps itself up-to-date, I don't think there is much harm in keeping it around.
    As for your mail program, the free mail program included with Windows XP was Outlook Express. It can retrieve mail from a wide variety of service providers and is pretty widely understood and supported. I'm not sure you want to lock yourself in to one particular provider's email program that might be harder to migrate to your next computer...

  • IWeb not looking good on Internet Explorer

    My site, www.bargelachouette.com has sat well on mac and in Windows IE for a couple of years, except for a small glitch on IE which I was prepared to accept. A few days ago I upgraded to IE8 on the Windows virtual machine of Parallels. The site is totally unacceptable in IE now, with illegible text covering photos which should not be there (The reflection at the bottom of the photo in the<white> <welcome> template I use is now the whole photo replicated below the original photo . Can anyone tell me why this is happening and what I should do to rectify it....please.

    Don't know Bob, but it looks like IE bit you.
    I see what you're talking about.
    I view it in Firefox and it looks fine.
    Not sure what you might be able to do, but hopefully someone will have a thought.
    The Barge look really neat.
    Good luck.
    You might try turning off the reflections.
    Looks like that where the problem areas are.
    Look like IE is not displaying it as a reflection, but a second picture.

  • Why Can I NOT Keep My Internet Explorer "DELETE HISTORY ON EXIT" Set

    Ok I have been fighting this every since Windows 8.0 and NO success.  Its like Microsoft coded I.E. to still hold onto all of my history and cache even though I have selected "Delete on exit".  Also the Advance setting where it caches
    sites files etc, NEVER deletes.   I can perform the procedure, then close out.  Turn off my computer and when I am back into IE.  I get the "previous browser session closed yada yada.... do you wish to restore"..        
    Sure enough, when I 'restore' everything I 'deleted' still there.
    and no, I didn't "cold-shut down' the computer where programs were still running (unless it is intentional that i.e. is still running even after ive closed and deleted history MANUALLY over and again)
    Is there a better "3rd" party browser to use ?

I've tried restarting my iPad, no luck either.  I've also gone through the Reset process of "Erase All Content and Settings" i.e., Restore, and like mentioned above, it worked for a little while then it went back to square one, as I mentioned a sentence or two previously.
    I've no idea what is going on, why it's not working, or anything.  I just wonder if it's got anything to do with a slow internet connection (we don't have high-speed internet access), or something else I haven't found that may be just under my nose.
    I would love some help and input into my situation, all and any ways which allow me to keep my current iPad (which is the New Generation one), not having to trash it and replace it with a new one.
    Have you tried to restore as a new device? Maybe a glitch exists on the restored backup, try this:

    If you increased the minimum font size then try a lower setting (default is none) as a too high value can cause issues like you described.

  • 3rd party WSDL open in Internet explorer but  why PI  WSDL not opening

    Hi Experts,
    My scenario is synchronous Webservice from soap to proxy .
    I am trying open this url in Internet explorer below the messages is getting

    Status information:

    but my client  asking why URL not open Internet explorer and moreover third party they given WSDL  that file is open in internet expolerer.so
    my question is why third party WSDL open in Internet explorer and why PI generated WSDL file not open in internet explorer.
    please guide me where i did wrong and what should i answer to my client regarding above issue.
    I hope,could you please clearly given points.

        Firstly, you should not give the host name and port name of the URLs that you are using. It is your company's security issue.
    And the message that you get for the wsdl , when you open in IE is nothing wrong.
    The wsdl can be of two types. One is a design time wsd, where you will just see the structure, importing and exporting parameters. It does not have the binding parameters within the wsdl.
    When the same wsdl is implemented, then it has a binding with the backend system. It becomes a runnable entity. The wsdl generated from your PI system is one such entity (It is tied to a backend and is a runnable web service). Hence IE shows that message.

  • Why won't Internet Explorer display current PDF page?

    Why can't my computer's Internet Explorer display the current PDF page?

    Dear acro123,
        I fixed the problem!  I un-installed two different adobe programs (the current ver.11 and an old ver. 5, which I think caused the problems), went to the registry and removed all folders pertaining to the adobe programs, and decided to re-install the current version (ver.11) for a clean install.  This seams to do the trick.  Thank you for your concern.  By the way it was Internet Explorer, running Windows XP and the Adobe versions were 11 and 5.
        Problem: An old page from April 21st kept showing up instead of a current updated webpage.  It wouldn't update to the current page.  My solution fixed it.
