    I have received some comments about how the following layout breaks a little in IE5 (CSS). So I'm asking for some help to fix that trouble and if there are more problems with another browsers.
    Thanks :)

    KyleGM,
    You may actually have a better result in getting help in an IE newsgroup than here. Also, I'd suggest loading a number of browsers on your local machine. I have Moz, NN, Opera, IE 6, and Firefox, all of which I use to test stuff with.

    When it comes to testing your layout in a different browser, there is no such place as http://www.browsercam.com/

    Sushubh: Thank you! I loved the http://www.danvine.com/ capture :D.
    NuclearMoose: I have FF, IE6 and Opera, but it's impossible (or really hard for me) to install IE5 where IE6 is installed.
    Ali_ix: That could work, instead of a rounded box, a square box could be easier to render for IE5.
    The problem is still there, but at least now I can solve it while seeing if my solution works or not. Thanks to all of you :)

    I do not know how far you want to go with this but any adjustment for one browser or another would be easier for you if the index was a bit simpler.
    You have loads of divs in there. Heck knows what they all do but I would say about two thirds of them could usefully go.

    Sushubh -- thanks! I was finally able to clear up a few very nasty issues. My menu is still overlarge in IE5.5, but may they suffer!

    There is a lot of experience in this forum at getting various browsers to handle WP.
    I hope no one feels discouraged from posting that kind of question here. When I first got started my first batch of legacy browser screen shots were so bad I published them on my blog. It does get better I promise :) IE 5 can be made to look tolerable for PCs. Macs are a lost cause.

    Root: I'm using rounded corners css so I need almost all of those divs :(.
