    My blog is not displaying correctly in Internet Explorer. My header image background color (gray) is showing in Chrome but not in Internet Explorer. When I go to my website in Internet Explorer the header is just a solid white background. Also, in internet explorer, my header is too close to the menu buttons. I have been trying to figure how to fix this for the past two days. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Thank You

  4. Weird, the bg appears on IE9, but not 8 or 7.
    I only have a Mac here, so can't check it on IE other than using Adobe browser lab.
    The only thing I can think of is to try adding

    height:auto;
    to your #branding div.

    I'm not sure though...

    Thank you Christine but that did not seem to work. Does anyone else have any suggestions?

    The first step for browser compatibility is validation.

    Part of the problem may be related to the fact that IE8 and earlier do not support use of hgroup tags -- so those styles assigned using that as a selector may not be working.
