Help figuring out what is wrong in IE

  • # August 15, 2009 at 11:34 am

    Would anyone be willing to help me figure out what is going on wrong here in LOEVELY IE6 with this site I am building. Here it is in FF which on my end is fine.
    Any tips would be great! I know there is something with floating and margins and padding? How can I fix this without messing up it looking fine in FF and other browswers. Its fine in IE8. In 7 the nav bar is going to the top.

    Thanks so much!

    Hi Lin, this is very common in IE. Usually when this happens its because of the double margin bug.

    You can use a conditional stylesheet to give css to IE6 and below like this:


    And try lowering the margins to see if that fixes it. I find setting all the container margins/padding to 0 will quickly give you an idea if the margins/padding is a problem in ie6. If it displays properly with no margins/padding, then you can shave a few pixels off the original margins until it fits.
