Pulling my hair out what little I have Please Help

  • # March 15, 2012 at 5:49 pm

    If you have a look at this fiddle you will see the css and html I am working on. Now in chrome safari and firefox what a suprise it works fine apart from the odd little glitch. The issue is when I come to IE (Oh the shock lol). The ul li for the navigation throws it’s toys out of the pram. Can someone help me please with what I will need to put in the conditional style sheet to solve this issue please.

    Cheers guys

    I may not know what Im talking about and I don’t have IE with me so I can’t see whats wrong…
    is this ie8 or 9?

    I have barely looked but nav is not going to work in ie8 without adding some js or making nav into a block.
    I use this to help in IE before 9

    @shamai The issue is that I have a unordered list that I have floated left and then put some styling on it for my navigation. IE is saying up yours to all my styling and so it’s not working at all.

    nav ul a {
    display: block;
    margin: 0 auto;
    width: 194px;
    color: #292e37;
    background: #0d1524;
    font-size: 2em;
    text-decoration: none;

    I’m assuming you’re talking about IE8 and below? If so, it won’t recognize the < nav> element. You’ll need to include something like the HTML5shiv to get that sorted out.
