    Man I hope someone can help me here lol

    One of my blogs looks completely effed up in IE but looks fine in Firefox. Can anyone help me with this? This is driving me crazy.

    I just worked all week building this and have only been viewing it in FF. I just decided to look at in IE and noticed this.

    Thanks will be given!!!

    View it in both Firefox and Internet Explorer to see what I mean.

    When ever I code I use
    Code:
    broswershots.org
    to make sure everything is lined up right and the way it should be.

    I just wish that one day all browsers will interpret HTML/CSS/Any code the same way.

    Sounds like spyware...


    As for the problem with your site. I didn't spend to much time, but you are going to have to work with that newsletter/optin thing to get your bottom content lined up. And the top thing, not too sure what is causing the blue line...

    IE really sucks as I have found out. All I can think of is that your #container div is set to float left and this is what it is doing in IE, but all the way to the left of the screen. Maybe #container {float:none}will work but that's just a quick guess. It might break something else.

    I have also noticed that you have some html code outside of your closing </html> tag. Is this right?

    I don't know if this will affect it but maybe you should use <!-- and --> instead of <!- and -> for the following.

    <!- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) ->

    To

    <!-- google_ad_section_start(weight=ignore) -->

    same with these...

    <!-- google_ad_section_start -->

    <!-- google_ad_section_end -->

    I would suspect all your problems lay in your CSS template, id suggest changing any float to hover eg. a:float to a:hover, IE is picky, also to narrow down what line is messing you up, start commenting //
    all your code in the CSS and start removing 1 by 1 till you find the exact code wich is messing you up, or you could post or attach your css file here and some of us could take a look.

    good luck.

    Can you tell this from the file I just uploaded?

    Where would I put this?

    Again, Im not sure. I just downloaded the template and did some minor changes.

    Thanks again. I just changed these to what you are suggesting. No changes seen yet.

    Thanks. I just ran it thru. Apparently there are a lot of problems with it. But they must lie within the template because I havent modified it a whole lot.

    Yes I did. Where you able to fix this?? If so, how?? Thanks!!

    I replaced all a:float to a:hover and still no changes. I will upload the stylesheet with this post.

    Thanks guys!!

    Hmmm. You could use two css files. One for firefox, and one for internet explorer.
    More work to be done, but if you're desperate, it works...

    remember to modify the code to your needs

    Put this after your <title>.....</title>:


    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="stylesheet-firefox.css" />
    <!--[if IE]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet-iexplorer.css" type="text/css">
    <![endif]-->
    <!--[if IE 6]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet-iexplorer.css" type="text/css">
    <![endif]-->
    <!--[if IE 7]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet-iexplorer.css" type="text/css">
    </style>
    <![endif]-->
