Why does my Premium Web Builder site display differently in web browsers?

I am not a programmer, but have been okay with using the Plesk sitebuilder and am quite pleased with how my site has turned out. I have run into some issues when I enter text on the builder and format it to size small. This looks great on the published site if I view in Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. However, when viewed in IE9 the fonts are larger and it does not make the site look very professional.

I first tried doing some font changes in the builder from IE so that I could preview the pages in IE, but this resulted in the font being a mixture of size small and x-small when viewing the published site in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. I have found that if I do my site updates and previews in Firefox, it is the lesser of 2 evils as the published site looks good in 3 out of the 4 browers that I use for checking.

Why does this happen? Is it something I am doing wrong? Is there a workaround for this?

Hi Janice,

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. I've looked over the site and noticed the same thing. Each browser interprets the website's code differently. It appears this is happening because the font size is set to "large" instead of an absolute value for the font size. Every browser renders "large" differently.

Unfortunately, the way the Premium Web Builder is designed you cannot correct the issue. You could edit the code after the site has been published. However, we do not recommend this and you would have to do this every time to re-published your website.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact us.
