# Why does a webpage miss formatting sometimes

browsercssformattinghtmlwebpage

Sometimes, a webpage gets loaded in the browser but it is not displayed properly. All the elements of the page are there, but they are not there where they should be.

for example (A,B and C are three elements of the page)

--------------------------
|       |       |       |
|   A   |   B   |   C   |
|       |       |       |
--------------------------


may be displayed as

---------
|       |
|   A   |
|       |
---------
|       |
|   B   |
|       |
---------
|       |
|   C   |
|       |
---------


that is, the formatting is missing. How does that happen?

#### Best Answer

The stylesheet might have timed / error-ed out and thus wasn't loaded.
