I recently installed Firefox to try it out after using IE for yeeeears! Right away I noticed the title of my own website is different on Firefox. With IE, my websites title has a shadow effect on it. This is missing when opened with FF. I’m usually pretty good at figuring these things out. Anyone have an idea why? Thanks in advance. BW

Ever wonder what your web page may look like to someone using a different browser and/or a different screen resolution? Even if your site was done by another company they may have not checked it against the different setups being used out there. This means that when someone clicks on your site, they may not see your information the way you do and just move on to the next one. Probably wouldn’t be a bad idea if we checked each others sites and forward any problems to the owner. I’ve found a few and emailed the members directly. Just thought I’d point this out as this could be a potential loss of business and a way for us to help each other.

Bob,


The drop shadow effect you have on your website is non-standard. The software you used to build your site used a CSS filter that Microsoft invented just for MSIE. The easiest way to get around that is to convert the title to an image--that is, if your software will let you do that, and you're able to.

Thanks Chris! icon_wink.gif I actually created that drop shadow effect myself using normal HTML text filters. I don’t understand why Firefox can’t read it!

Bob,


In a nutshell--there's an organization called the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) that works to define Web standards. They're the ones who specify how HTML and CSS should work. Firefox follows the W3C guidelines very carefully, and the filter:shadow style doesn't exist in the CSS 1, 2, 2.1, or 3 specifications. Microsoft just decided to add it in as an added "benefit" to those who design for Internet Explorer. When you say "normal HTML text filters" you're actually talking about MSIE-only text filters.
