    I am experiencing a formatting problem on my website. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience in dealing with such things.

    If I go to "http://monsterminibow.com/ofp.html" the page is formatted incorrectly. All the content is there but the spacing is all wrong.

    But if I type in "http://www.monsterminibow.com/ofp.html" it is formatted correctly.

    How does adding the "www." change the way the page is laid out? This is all in FireFox, IE doesn't seem to manifest the problem. I had this problem before on another page and I think I remember clearing the cache to fix the problem on my local machine. The thing I am worried about is that a remote viewer may experience the problem and not know that it can be fixed, thus turning them off of my site.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    I can't say exactly but some web servers are actually set up to only accept things in the format of www [dot] whatever.com and if you just type whatever.com it gives you a snarky message. I suspect this is your issue, a server configuration setting you need to check.

    eh, I might be late with this, but I would suggest configuring your .htaccess to 301 all (http://site.com) requests to (http://www.site.com)

    Your issue is a caching one. Firefox sometimes caches pages aggressively, causing inconsistency. Using 301 redirect will solve this particular issue and prevent duplicate indexing, that is if you care about SEO.
