This paper describes the styling issues in Punjabi Websites using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in various web browsers. Seven different styling issues for Indian Languages have been identified by other researchers. It has been noted that most Punjabi websites make use of only underline and hyperlinks for styling the web content. To test all the styling issues, we developed our own testing website for Punjabi with the use of CSS. We have checked all the styling issues in six different browsers. The results of comparative study in different browsers are presented in this paper.
