    when I view it on Chrome or Firefox it displays it perfectly. What is a quick fix for this?

    It looks exactly the same in IE9 for me. What is wrong with it in IE for you?

    the information is listed underneath challenge: ,action:, and results:
    like this:

    challenge:

    build text goes here

    instead of:

    challenge : build text goes here.

    From what I can see your html 5 elements (eg: article) are being ignored by IE ver 8 & less. So far as IE ver 8 & less are concerned, those elements don’t exist, so your classes will also be ignored.

    One solution is to append those elements using Js if you think it worth it. like so:

    You must always consider your target audience before using any html 5 elements as browser support’s limited for now. There might be other fixes but I hope this helps.
