There is really a big difference in spacing b/w Firefox and IE, and that's killing me too sometimes. So, just play safe as much as possible.

No it does not, check the site on mozilla firefox first, end then check on Internet explorer...is all distored, deformed, compare with the original lay out....

Hi Pablo,

I had a look at your site and I can see that you have copied text from an external source. MS Word perhaps? You can also see this if you right-click on the page and choose 'View Source'.

Doing this can bring hidden formatting issues - in your case, it changes the appearance of the page. We recommend that you first paste the text into something like Notepad and then copy and paste it into your text widget. We apologise for this, but it's a common problem with pasting text from Word onto web-based applications and something that we're working on fixing!

The way to fix this is to re-add the text, following the steps above. Republish your site and ask your clients and friends to take another look.

Please let us know if this doesn't solve the problem.

i mean in playing safe, post anything, text or images, which can be displayed fine both with Firefox and IE..make adjustments as possible. Go wherein the both browser can make fine display.
