Whenever I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer,
it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with
a quick heads up! Besides that, fantastic blog!

Thank you for the head's up. For now, I'm afraid I've found everything I can do about browser compatability. I've even tried mobile format (.xhtml) for most of my pages, to make sure I have an audience.
