i was making a website template using html and css and was using google chrome to preview the page. But after i finished making it , and i opened the page in different browsers (Mozilla, internet explorer ) and the page looked different in different browsers. It shows as if the code is browser dependent. How do we overcome this difficulty and write a code that looks same in all browsers????

    that's the main focus of a web designer these days. don't forget smartphones and tablets as well, as their screens/interfaces also can change the game. some browsers right now only know so much HTML5 and CSS3 so if you're making this page up to date you need to make alternatives to the unsupported features. (i.e. an embedded flash video for an embedded html video.) you'll also probably need to utilize javascript and php as well in order to accomplish some of your goals... there aren't many pages left that are strictly html/css anymore.

    haha well it's a little too complex to answer as a single question, and I'm honestly just figuring this stuff out myself (I designed websites several years ago before CSS even existed, so catching up to modern times now). there's a great lecture series from harvard I'm watching right now called "building dynamic websites" that I so far is doing a great job of showing how each layer of a modern page works. and don't be intimidated that there are multiple languages you must work with. they all have the same basic premise. each one you learn makes the next easier. also don't forget to check the developer sections of the various browser sites for their own recommendations on compatibility.

    hey its all part of the css , you have to make amendments in it so that when the page opens it first checks for the browser and then shows the page designed for it. for eg:- -moz-transform:rotate(180deg); /* Firefox 4 */ -webkit-transform:rotate(360deg); /* Safari and Chrome */ -o-transform:rotate(180deg); /* Opera */ these are some of the differences in transform.
