Preventing overlapping layers
Is there a way to prevent layers from overlapping in the browser? They are fine in all of my browsers, but on my friend's computer, my two bottom layers (copywrite and address) are overlapping, causing quite an eyesore.
The url is www.ryanwhitney.com/home.html
I would like to do this without converting to tables, if possible, as I have a difficult time working with tables. Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

it looks ok on my browser IE6, 800*600 res. Have you had a look what it looks like using relative positioning?

I am not familiar with relative positioning. Is this part of a css? How would I go about relative positioning?

z-indexing: do you really need to use it?Originally Posted by krak_d
I've found that z-indexing can screw up a layout when a browser is resized. You have to use it very carefully.
Why use layers for just text? I would think it might be more efficient to just set up a div for that 'block' and use inline styles to style the font. BTW, the font tag is deprecated. You never know what the page is going to look like in current/future browsers.

Thanks for all the responses! I am sorry for my total lack of technical understanding, but what do you mean by the font tag is depreciated?
I have joined the two bottom layers, so they will not overlap anymore, but body text could still overlap them. It shouldn't really be a problem, though, unless someone has their text set really large.
