I already had one in mind!

I can have my site look wonderful on my machine, I ask someone to view it with a higher res and things are misaligned, 'jumping out of place' etc. In the site I am currently building I have set all my margins and widths using % (thinking it will span all/most resolutions the same).
Half the trouble is, my highest resolution I can go to is 1280x800. It seems to get worse as it goes higher, so my 'testers' have told me
Would you possibly be able to take a quick look at it for me in a higher resolution?
Site is located: Nanomech's site

Thank you so much for all them links. It will definitely be a loooon g night. I think the site you saw earlier this week was the old version, I've totally re-designed the back end and use db for a lot of the content.
I have just visited the link in my other post 3 times and it seemed to load the page ok.
Is that the whole message? I only ask because it seemed earlier, if I clicked the links too quickly, it showed me a blank page with 3 error messages. Next time it happens I'll copy and paste it just to check it against yours.

Your site is available again. "flowerbed.fw.png" looks odd when stretched to 909px in width. I would suggest giving a max-width of the image's width to "#navigation_div".
I'm glad to see you're using a min-width on "#container", however, at that minimum the left column seems a little too narrow.
By the way, paragraphs that have centered text can be difficult to read. It's best to use "text-align:left" for them (assuming ltr, left-to-right, text).
I'm curious, is there a particular reason why you're using XHTML 1.0 Transitional? Did you notice that your page has a random </noscript> end tag?
Which message? Perhaps you saw my post before I changed the links to archive.org's copy of each page. If you wait a little they should redirect to show the article.
