    123bloom .....You need to view it in Firefox, as the right side of the page is cut off. Nice colors, but I`m immediately turned off by half of the page being ads.affiliates2shop ....This line .....  "But don`t leave after viewing only the home page" .... is already telling me "I haven`t told you anything worthwhile yet, but hang on....". Why should I? Convince me to stay to start with, interest me enough to look around. But I did, and basically all I see is that your site is nothing but affiliate ads. Your internal pages also have a Firefox problem.JMO .... I wouldn`t stay on either one for more than a few seconds.

    Thanks for the input.  The sites are full of ads because they are essentially shopping web sites.  But I get the point and I will try and find a way to make the sites more visually appealing.
    I took your advice and viewed them via Firefox and noticed that Firefox and Microsoft Office Live Basic aren`t very compatible.
    Firefox doesn`t view MSL Layout Zones properly.  I would advise others to use tables instead, otherwise, your margins will appear truncated as mine do.
    Also Firefox will truncate the text unless hard returns are used.
    Firefox doesn`t like borders on tables.  The work around is to nest the tables.
    Firefox will force your page to conform to your Page Width selection (example settings = 780 px) while MSL allows the page to expand beyond your selected page width defaults.
    I just wanted to provide more details so that others could benefit.
    It will take me a while to rework my sites to make them Firefox friendly.
    If anyone else has any other suggestions, I would love to hear them.

    " Firefox and Microsoft Office Live Basic aren`t very compatible. "~ Because MS will make code for IE and not worry about other browsers." Firefox doesn`t like borders on tables. " ~ I`ve never had a problem with it.

    My website (reviving-leadership.com) is an Office Live site and I always view it on Firefox after making changes and I`ve never had a problem.  I believe I`m running the newest version of Firefox which might be the difference though. If someone reads this and looks at my site w/Firefox and has a problem please let me know because I`d be interested in what pages are causing problems for others.
