    [This is the page]( “”)

    Get Modernizr, call it at the end of your head element like “. You’re using html5 elements which IE8 doesn’t recognize, then chokes and does weird things so you’re unable to style them.

    Edit: You probably only need html5shiv, but it’s included in Modernizr.

    Thks CrocoDillon,

    U r right, just the html5shiv would do. Looks much more better, now just need to center the slide only.
