    My 2011 theme sites with a dynamic flash header plug in shows a huge gap under the header and above the navigation bar using Internet Explorer 9. Is there a plug-in or solution to this please?
    http://oclegalwizard.com is one of the sites the other is http://csidemarketing.com/

    It is caused by invalid image that you have in your header:

    <a href="http://csidemarketing.com/">
    
    									<img src="http://csidemarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/header1-42.swf" width="1000" height="288" alt="" />
    							</a>

    That is a flash file, not image, so you shouldn't have that img tag. Other website has similar incorrect img tag

    Thank you so much for the reply.
    I can not find this code. I looked at header.php located: csidemarketing.com/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven

    I followed csidemarketing.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/header1-42.swf and found the file there but can not find where this code is to remove the img tag. Can you please help me find it?
    Thank you.

    Go thru the WP admin, then Appearance, then Editor, then Header. Then look in the header code.

    Thank you for your help.
    I actually had two different solutions for each site for some reason. http://oclegalwizard.com/ I just removed the dynamic headers plugin and was able to get the swf file to work just using the appearance/headers.
    http://csidemarketing.com/ swf will not work without the plugin, removed all information from appearance/headers and used the plugin upload.
    They both seem okay now.

    I am having a similar problem with my site http://www.balajimandir.org. The custom header shows up fine in Safari, Firefox, Chrome but doesn't in IE (8 at least). The abs path to the image is http://www.balajimandir.org/temple/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/copy-header11.jpg, which again doesn't show up in IE.
    Also, my site looks completely askewed in IE but neat in all other browsers.
    Any help please? I am not sure if I am hijacking somebody's post (I am new to WP) but please - any pointers would be highly appreciated.
    I am using Twenty Eleven theme.

    Just style your object :)
    height: 288px; overflow: hidden; display: block;
    - works like a charm.
    You could also wrap it with a div and apply that style.
    Cheers.
