    Yes, the red links at the bottom and the blue decoration just above them, are over the text. The same goes for the cat and dog image just above the "A dog's life" title. It's the same on my IE and Firefox

    The overlaping problem can be easily solved by placing items inside of a table.

    Sweveral overlaps on my machine: pictures and Bold Headings, blue accent line all well into the text areas. I have a similar problem - all clear on my computer, two other5s in house and for most of my viewers. Still a few who show overlapping. Ipu everything in forms, reduced type size, allowed more space, got rid of a lot of shapes - still the problem persists.

    I do not have an answer for you.

    Sorry

    I've put text boxes and phots, other elements, inside forms and inside tables. The problem persists. I create in 600X800 - could this relate to the problem when viewed in 1200 or whatever?

    Why not try and simplify your site? You seem to have 3 natural pages there, so why not set up a "home" page with links to the site in 3 parts?

    Just a thought!

    I see overlaps all over your page in fact it is a real mess. I would suggest the same as Dave make separate pages, it also makes it easier to go back to something that you've seen.
    Good luck.

    The overlaps are all still there. Is it possible that you have your computer set to show pages with smaller text than they actually have? I think if you changed your default text size to a smaller text, you might solve many of the overlap problems. Right now your text is really big.

    Brake down the content of your page in three pages. Insert a menubar in your pages with the first button being "Home", linked to your index page, the second one called f.e. "Dog A logue", linked to the second page which will have that content, the third one called "Pet A Logue" with relevant content and so on. Please watch the tutorials on Menubars and hyperlinking

    Hi Two Cats,

    Pretty much as navaldesign has said. Your home page is basically your existing (index) page. Just create a new blank page and cut & paste your second page into this and save it as (say) Page2. Then repeat the exercise with the next page and save as Page3. Then delete the content of these 2 from your home (index) page and add a menu bar. When you edit the menu bar content your urls will then be www.catpetalogue.com (home/index), www.catpetalogue.com/Page2.html and www.catpetalogue.com/Page3.html. As navaldesign says, you will find info on this in the tutorials.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Dave

    I still see the overlaps, so I would go for the separate pages as explained by Naveldesign and Dave, the only comment I would make is put your pages in separate folders as this will make it easier to maintain in the future ie delete the contents of the folder and then republish the page this will not leave unnecessary stuff on the server for instance page 3 would read more like this www.catpetalogue.com/page3/Page3.html.
    hope this helps.

    Question Re: We Have A Problem .Please Help

    OKay, I have the overlap text issue. I know it is because I change font view to 110%. Most of my pages are in text boxes, yet, there is still the overlap problem. Am I missing something or is it because of the drag & drop program?

    two cats,

    I looked at your site and everything looks great on my end. but I also have been running into the very same problem. I am wondering if it is because I am using a laptop and my screen is set to large width? but it looks fine here.

    The only overlapping I see is at the very end where the cat is running across the page, he is running across your lettering.

    The google link at the bottom of the first page is overlapping the text on my PC.
