I created my website, previewed it and then uploaded it to my server. It looks fine in Safari but everything displays backwards in Internet Explorer (it's a total mirror image). Can anyone tell me why and how I can fix it?

Thanks!

You have "filter: FlipH" in the style for the #container div, so it's not surprising the content shows backwards in IE. Safari

presumably doesn't understand MS DHTML:

Wouldn't life have been simpler for Leonardo da Vinci if he'd been able to apply a FlipH filter to all his writing?

Neither does FireFox or Seamonkey.

I the only thing I see out of the oridinary is one image link is broken.

"????????"

"If that's really a font, how many people do you think are going to see it on your page?"

"i do. that's how i was able to steal your idea!"

"I kinda like it that way."

"My god    —    it really does!"

SO NOT helpful!!! thanks for nothing! why bother writing anything if you're not here to help? Yes, I put my question in the wrong forum (despite following what was set out in the forums directory) but I honestly needed help. won't be coming here anymore. Out of several replies only ONE person was kind enough to offer help.

so thanks for nothing

You do know that only about 3 people will see the text as you intended, that you should set a back-up font in case people don't have yours installed? And most of them won't?

Maggie, you had two helpful replies within 45 minutes of posting. One suggested you post in a product forum, the other answered your question before it was also correctly answered in the Dreamweaver forum. In fact, the problem had nothing to do with any Adobe product, but you were still in a short space of time given the means to avoid further embarrassment.

You can't honestly be offended that such a bizarre rendering of your website should generate a bit of banter. Lighten up a bit, and be thankful that you have here a priceless resource that has been of enormous benefit to thousands of users of Adobe products, where you have the opportunity to pick the brains of world-class experts.

Best of luck with your business - now go and fix the missing images and dodgy links on your site.

Yes, I put my question in the wrong forum (despite following what was set out in the forums directory) but I honestly needed help.

Don't take it personally, maggiestg. There are many people using Adobe products who don't work on Web development and that was such a strange symptom to some that it brought out the humor in here.

I am curious, though and am about to ask a question that is on topic for this forum. This is happening more frequently and most often, though not exclusively, with Dreamweaver questions.

Do you recall the exact steps that led to your post landing in the wrong forum?

How did you navigate to (what you thought was) the DW forum? Did you use the drop-down selection, click on the DW icon at http://forums.adobe.com/ or use some other method (bookmark)?

More importanly, I suspect, did you login before or after navigating to the DW forum to post the question? I am guessing after and that it somehow redirected you to the Forum Comments when it forced you to log in.

If that's really a font, how many people do you think are going to see it on your page?

It's a font - It's bolder counterpart is called "boys are gross"

(both were found on my teaset at costco!)

Not a good font for web design though, as the only people with it will be toy packaging designers that are currently working on girly stuff.

Grafitti, this looks contrived in IE

but perfect in plain text as seen by email users.

Possibly, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. They did post the question in the Dreamweaver forum after being directed there. After the question was answered[1] there, the OP fixed the problem on the site.

[1] No, I DON'T mean it was "Marked as Answered" [winky emoticon].
