Damned IE!

  • # September 16, 2008 at 11:15 am

    Hi there, hope you can help. In firefox my site looks fine, but un early versions of IE. the main contnet is not vertically aligned. How do I rectify this?
    2nd provblem is in IE 5.5 and 6 the Contact and shop links at the top right of the page are not displaying correctly. The images hug the text instead of displaying the space between them..

    3rdly is in IE the shadow at the back of the main box does not show., I messed around with png hacks but have obviously failed as it has made it disappear full stop.

    Please help.

    Here is the site: http://www.pauledmondson.co.uk

    Do you have a link to the URL? Also, is there a reason why you’re bothering with IE5.5? Generally designers don’t support any IE older than IE6 and for many designers even support for that is ending.

    I wouldn’t worry about IE 5.5 way too small a market share to spend any time on in my opinion.

    the problem is in IE 6 too. Please help. Im not having muck joy with this forum. I have posted several times and nobody has helped yet. :?
    I have been working on it and have been tryin out a conditional css statement in the head, but it doesnt work either:

    <!–[if lte IE 7]><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/ie.css"><![endif]–>

    then in style sheet specify a top value of the pixel amount which aligns it correcntly in ie.

    If the problem is in IE 6 but not 7 why does your conditional comment include IE 7. If you just want to target before IE 7 use <!–[if lt IE 7]>

    I also notice that you have a second <![endif]> statement in your document head and haven’t closed all of the items in they head of your document properly. Sometimes little things like that can affect other items that you didn’t expect. In fact many of the items in the head of your document are not ended properly. Make sure that you have /> at the end of every meta statment and that all of the proper quotes are present.

    Your doctype is incomplete, use

    Code:
    < !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">

    Before you go any further and see if that addresses any issues.

    Im gonna have to give up on this one. Despite putting in the conditional statement it still dont work. All tags seems fine to me too.

    A quick look at your posts shows that you have been helped a fair bit on this forum, it’s very unfair and unreasonable to suggest otherwise.
