    Default Compatibility Mode - My NOF 13 sites converted are NOT being viewed right.

    I built my sites in NOF 12 and have upgraded and imported to NOF 13 and I notice people have to switch to compatibility mode in Chrome and IE to view the site properly.

    I upgraded to NOF 13 and imported my site as a template and switched to HTML 5 Dynamic and my site is still the same. Trying to rewrite every page and It's just too much.

    Please tell me there is a easy solution.
    Sincerely and Thank you!!!

    Hi Steve, Thank you so much for writing. The fonts should be bigger and the links in text on the bottom under the menu choices should be different too. I've included a JPEG I hope you can see.

    If we go to http://www.lawfirmpeople.com/html/word_processing_.html the situation gets much worse. I'm very scared!!Click image for larger version.

    as can be seen in the css file http://www.lawfirmpeople.com/html/style.css

    your normal P text is set to x-small instead of using pixel (px) use 12 or 14px instead (text menu, edit text styles, select normal P and apply px and set a size, this will fix the whole site in one hit)

    also, your site is html4 and not html5

    Thank you everyone who took the time to write, I can't tell you how much it means to me. I'm intimidated and scared I'm not knowledgeable to fix these things.

    I'm very worried about the way tables are nesting together.

    First I'll take your advice and work on the fonts and then report back to you.

    THANK YOU ALL. THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    Dear Antonsvideo.

    Thank you for this valuable advice. I found I was using Automatic -1 and when switching to pt or px many of the issues went away. I don't know the advantages of using px vs, pt but I'll try and find out. AGAIN. Thank you, sincerely. The reason the site is still in html4 vs. 5 is I converted it and expected these thing to go away automatically. So... I'm working in 4 and will covert again, once I fix things. I'm very scared I'm sitting up at nights worried about everything so much. I fear I've lost business because I've so messed up everything. THANK YOU for helping me and for everyone being so kind here. Thank you.

    [QUOTE] I don't know the advantages of using px vs[/QUOTE

    ]pt stands for "Point" which is a unit of measurement used in typography that is equal to 1/72 inch. It is used primarily for representing the height of characters and the amount of space between lines, also known as leading. It has no place in web design and I cannot understand why it is included in Fusion.

    Use pixels as your unit of measure for web sites. Use points if you're designing for pre-press output.

    An em is a unit in the field of typography, equal to the currently specified point size. For example, one em in a 16-point typeface is 16 points. Therefore, this unit is the same for all typefaces at a given point size. However, the em has been co-opted for online display and is defined as the height of the font in nominal points or inches. The actual, physical height of any given portion of the font depends on the user-defined dpi setting, current element font-size, and the particular font being used. Ems are mostly used on in the web in CSS for variable size output in responsive web design. Fusion includes the em as one of its standard measurements; however, given the fact that fusion is incapable at this time of responsive output I see no reason to use it and stick with pixels as my sole measurement when designing sites.

    Hi Franco How are you? Good thing I only did 6 pages. I'll switch everything to PX. I'll have to find the PX equiv of 10 PT.

    Things are looking better as I normalize the fonts around the site. Even when I go to styles and put in the fonts I want it does not change everything. It seems that font and font sizes I put in have overridden things. So much work. I can't believe how nice everyone here is. You got me out of a few jams once before. Thank you for telling me about using PX vs PT

    Here is my HOME page now. http://www.LawFirmPeople.com I'll switch to PX in the AM. I hope I can do it universally this time. other wise I have to go page to page and table to table and do them manually

    All the best Franco -

    Thank you!!!!!
