It also happens when I try and print the page.
I also have tried to change the font size and the view size to no avail.


I see no overlaps of the sentences you mention; maybe there is something to your computer. I DO know that sometimes when I print something out of my HP printer, I get
these weird letters/numbers taking the place of the actual letters/numbers that suppose to be on the original document. Some of the weird letters/numbers look almost like those
symbols you see in these UFO stories . Anyone have any idea why that's so?!

Two things:

No.1: Chris, you have put together a spectacularly good intro to model rocketry. Well done! I will be referring to it quite a bit I'm sure. Added it to my favorites already.

No. 2: The reason some us see a few formatting issues is related to the small differences between the Internet Explorer and Firefox rendering engines. Firefox users should by default have an add-on called "IE View v1.4" which allows you to switch between rendering engines. The pages of Chris' website display just fine in "IE View" but in the normal Firefox view, text runs over the images in a few places. No big, just something to be aware of.

Again, Chris, you've done an excellent job. Thank you!

So is there something I can do to correct it, patch,setting,etc?

Default Re: New Model Rocket Construction Website

Hi all,
Thanks for all the positive feedback on the website. Most who responded say they will use it for it's intended purpose. I wanted to produce a site that would have answered the questions I had when I started the hobby, and answered all the new questions I had when I got back into it.
I've already gone back to the software and made a few corrections, some blocks of copy were repeated. I'll download the corrections in the next day or so. Check back, on occasion I will be adding new information, upgrading the art and photos.
I'm sorry there is problems with some "readers" not reproducing the site as it was originally laid out. I used a simple WYSIWYG software from a company called Coffee Cup.
If I knew more about the "Ins and Outs" of web development I could probably fix it.
That 20m.com extension is from a very inexpensive web server. When I signed with them for a free site (with advertisements) they then offered a small site with no ads for $4.95 a year! Can't beat that.
But, it's up and running and I can cross it off my 2008 To-Do list. Now, on to 2009's list!

Happy New Year!

Thank You again for doing it. It is GREAT!!.
As far as the problems like I said it works with Safari so I will use that when I want to reference it.
Take Care

I tried to answer many of the questions I had when I got back into the hobby a few years ago. New materials, glues - that sort of thing. There is also two pages on budget rocketry.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

I tried that trick I learned on thsi site about using a razor blade to screed the excess FnF yesterday and took a look at the results today. I like it. The coverage was more uniform and the sanding needed much lighter.

Thanks!
