Computer Question

Why is it that on my computer at home, the following post looks fine, but on my client's computer, the back image of the tee crosses over into my links side?

Why is it that on some computers my banner is visible, and on others just the name of the blog shows?

Is there something I can do to guarantee my blog looks good on all computers, or do their individual settings change things?

its the "screen size" settings. Its an individual thing. Some of us are blind and require bigger fonts or pictures.

I'm not an expert, but you need a "liquid" template, rather than a fixed or absolute position template. Liquid templates use percentages for positioning rather than specifying the exact pixel placement.

There are many variables that control how your website or blog will look on any particular monitor. Anon has mentioned two of them. Two others are the operating system (Windows, Mac, Web TV, etc.) and the browser (MS Internet Explorer, Firefox, Netscape, Mozilla, etc.) If this concerns you, a good web designer should be able to redesign your blogger templates so that viewing will be more consistant over these different variables. Someone who knows their stuff could do it in an hour or two. But, know that it can never be exactly the same because of individual differences in monitors and preference settings. BTW, I agree with Carolyn... your blog looks great to me. This is my first visit, and I've enjoyed it.

Your blog looks good to me - but if you look in your TEMPLATE, then you can changed the "fixed" page dimensions to "percentage" ones wherever you find them. (like a previous commenter said about liquid vs. fixed). This way, things will always adjust for the size screen it's appearing on. For example, you'd want WIDTH=80%, not WIDTH=700px. If you google "html tutorials" you can find lots of information online how to do this.
