So I get a call from a client saying that they basically are viewing the site as words and send me a screen shot basically showing that their internet browser isn’t showing the CSS style sheet I’ve got attached to their site. They are using IE8. I’ve previewed it in IE6, 7, 8, Firefox (multiple versions), Opera and Chrome, and on my computer it’s looking fine. So I guess I’m a little dumbfounded as to how to fix this problem…Can anyone help?April 6, 2011 at 5:07 pm #51996DogsGhostMember
what are those 09 and 10 in the header of your page ?April 6, 2011 at 5:11 pm #51998
I thought I had written a work around for IE, but maybe it didn’t take? (It’s been a bit of a long day and I’m apparently too tired to be thinking logically now…Is that incorrect? [Thanks]April 6, 2011 at 5:17 pm #52001
The link to /ie.css doesn’t exist. By putting the backslash in front of it, the browser expects the file to be here:
Make sure to link it to where your CSS file is located.April 6, 2011 at 5:25 pm #51974DogsGhostMember
found your ie stylesheet, try this:

That totally makes sense. I’ve uploaded it but have no way to check it since it looked fine on my end to begin with…any improvement?April 7, 2011 at 12:37 am #51900jamygoldenMember
IE8 and FF display the page pretty much the same way now. So I’d say: Problem solved :pApril 7, 2011 at 11:51 am #51853
I got an email from the client this morning saying they are still seeing it incorrectly. I’m at wits end…Is there any explanation for this – maybe it’s a network thing?April 7, 2011 at 12:02 pm #51855
Looks good in IE8 for me now.
Maybe they are using an older version? IE6 perhaps?April 7, 2011 at 12:06 pm #51856
Yeah…me too, but just confirmed one user is using IE8 the other is using IE7 (both of which have looked good on 3 computers that I tested on)…the only difference between them and I would be their are on a network that is set up for their business…I’m wondering if maybe they’ve got some sort of security settings up that wouldn’t enable them to read style sheets…but IDK…I’m not the most tech geared so it really could be anything I guess.April 7, 2011 at 12:09 pm #51857BobMember
Ask them to try it at their home computers.April 7, 2011 at 12:15 pm #51858
Yea, some networks that are set up for businesses have some terrible caching issues.April 7, 2011 at 2:40 pm #51862zackwMember
tell them to do a hard refresh (CTRL + SHIFT + R)
