positioning issue in ie6

  • # February 10, 2009 at 4:14 pm

    is there problems with positioning in ie 6? I have a main nav on my site that I have a position:fixed on, and also I have placed them by setting a top: and left: positioning. IE6 is not using this.. the our out of place AND the scroll when I want them fixed.

    maybe try changing your doctype from:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"&gt;

    to

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"&gt;

    Just a wild stab in the dark….

    nope.. do you think its a bad idea to just say screw it?? the only issues Im having is in ie 6. when I look at my stats of my current site I really dont get too many visits from ie6. not many ie visits in general but if so most ie7.
    I do still have couple quirks in ie 9 but not nearly as bad.

    personally on my sign making site I have done… I have a nice javascript pop up telling people why and where to download the update or firefox or whatever.

    IE6 still holds about 18% of the browser usage wars… it might be closer to 16 now as its declining every month.

    I suppose its up to you, and who you are trying to attract, and wether you are willing to take the chance that you might loose some business. Personally I took the chance on that site LOL

    I think it really depends on the research that you do. On a site I did that recently went live, in the first couple of weeks ie6 users are around a lowly 2% of visitors, not enough for me to particularly care about (even though the site is ie6 compatible at the client’s request).
