IE render does not look like Firefox.

    Hey guys! First, because this is my first post on the forums, I would like to say I love this site! As a full-browser-Flash kind of person, it has really gotten me to look back into CSS, even though I’m not to good at it.

    Now, onto the problem. Ok, so just for fun, I’m building a site that I hope will turn into my new website. I started building it and testing it within firefox, but forgot all about the fact that IE renders CSS differently. It looks just as I want it to look like in firefox, although gets really ugly in IE. I have spent a good amount of time (at least 3 hours) trying everything I can think of to make it render the same in both browsers, but have had no luck. (I’m not to great with CSS, but I think I’m getting there).

    I have attached a .zip with the site in its current form, and if someone could take it look at it, that would be great!

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    Rain724

    Thank you so much! I knew it was going to be something simple like that. (I never knew what those things were on top of html files, I just thought they were unnecessary and looked messy. :P)

    I’m glad you like what’s there so far.

    haha yea they do though don’t they :) Very important though as they tell the browser what its reading basically :) If you don’t tell it, it has to guess…
