Another IE7 css issue (5 posts)

    Hi all,

    I've finished my blog recently (apart from the head banner graphics), and I've tested it under most browser, got it working under Firefox, Opera and Safari, but here I go, I've got troubleshoots under IE6 and IE7.

    I got my hands in the dirt trying to make things work with two separate css files for each version of IE, but unsuccessfuly so far. I have to say that I'm learning css and html at the moment, hence a certain lack of knowledge that would have helped me with these things.

    I've looked at forums here and there, but I haven't found anything sorting out my problems as of now.

    So here's the blog : http://blog.mypixelbucket.com

    It's basically most of the buttons being all over the place, hover actions not working, content title's image being croped and the search menu background colour being shifted left (I know I can just put the same colour as for the rest of the page, but I'd like to know why it's doing it and how it can be fixed).

    Many many thanks to any help or hints provided.

    Please ask for partial or complete css code, I'll provide it gladly if needed.

    These files are not found, even though they are linked in your theme:

    http://blog.mypixelbucket.com/wp-content/themes/pixelBucket_v02/ie7.css
    http://blog.mypixelbucket.com/wp-content/themes/pixelBucket_v02/ie6.css

    You also have code errors and css errors. These should be fixed first if you are troubleshooting display problems. I noticed that a number of code errors are from using HTML 4 instead of XHTML, so see:

    Thanks for looking at it iridiax. I've deleted the ie6.css and ie7.css since they weren't working, and I'm looking at trying something else from a clean slate, based on the style.css file that I'm using so far and which is working on most browsers.

    I'm trying fixing HTML errors in the W3C validator, but most errors being returned are apparently due to lines involving php code, and I'm very bad at it (I'm only looking at the header.php file for the moment).

    Any further help will be greatly appreciated.

    Well, I've modified the ie7.css file and it looks like it's W3C valid, but I still can't find a hack or a way to make those hover buttons and fix the cropped title bar.

    I also have a question about valid php code : I've tested my php files and a few others from random blog themes, and I often get the same error type, as for instance the following one :

    Line 2, Column 44: unclosed start-tag requires SHORTTAG YES

    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>/>

    Line 2, Column 75: character data is not allowed here

    …99/xhtml" <?php language_attributes(); ?>/>

    Can anyone point to resources where I can find something that can help me fix that ? Thanks again for any help.
