In Opera the page is aligned to the right, but in IE6 and foxfire it is centered.

I am interested in the source of your information:

As a professional web designer I always like to have the facts at my fingertips so that I can explain to a client why I shouldn't have to test my work on every concieveable platform/browser combination.

BTW:
in IE on Mac, all your table borders are showing on the wwobn site;
So your home page looks like a checkerboard.

haven't tested it with other browsers yet...

I didn't go all the way in but what I did see was good. No problems in browser. I have just started playing with OR and plan to build many different systems on it. Nice to see those who started ahead of me are having good luck.

Out of 2600 and some odd franchised dealerships over the country we've dealt with over the past 3 years not ONE uses it. Out of the 2600 73% use a Microsoft platform of some sort. 20% use a home grown UNIX platform using customized automotive software written in the 80's and 7% use a strict linux port product.*

And by the way you misspelled conceivable.

I was looking at the wwobncommunications.com site using the latest Internet Explorer on Macintosh OS X. It displays fine in Safari and Firefox but when using Internet Explorer it looks like you have your table borders set to 1. I see in your code:

<table border="0" style="border-collapse: collapse"
width="100%" id="table1" cellpadding="0"
height="100%"> but nonetheless the black outline of all your table cells is visible.

I think it may have something to do with the border style: I couldn't find "border-collapse" definition in my CSS reference guide. If it is a custom style, maybe that is causing the problem.

This is how it looks in IE 5.2 on Mac OS X:

Internet Explorer isn't exactly the most standards compliant browser, so it could be an IE Mac bug. IE Mac and the Windows versions behave quite differently, especially interms of plug-ins, javascript, and CSS.
Testing in each one is the only way to identify all the potential problems...and even then, some issues still get through.
That is why, as a web designer, I was surprised at your original comment.


BTW:
I just also noticed that you don't have a DOCTYPE definition on your page either. That may also be part of the problem.

That is crazy. Ya, I'll have to look into that. It only seems to be that browser too.
