Tom,

on http://new.uh-hosting.co.uk/ check in IE5.2.2 on mac
view text size 100% looks ugly, the drop down list is off, with js on, 
but worse php,asp and ds are shifted way down the page.
Mozilla behaves far better.

golf.uk.net has a similar problem with js, at least on this machine :-)

thanks

Jonathan
