    Hello:)

    My site looks normal in Firefox (at least on my PC!) but has abnormally huge fonts showing up in Internet Explorer?

    Why is that, and what should I do???

    Site is http://www.raisingsmallsouls.com/

    Please always validate your pages .. :)

    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.raisingsmallsouls.com%2F

    You have an unclosed <h1> tag, I am guessing this is the main problem ..

    If that doesn't solve it, then post back and we can help you out.

    Thanks so much, skulled.

    Um, I'm new to HTML, but learning more every day; How can I figure out which php file the validator is referring to?

    Is it in my css style sheet?

    Is there a way in Notepad that I can jump to "line 74" and fix what they want?

    -A bit confused, but it's all starting to come together...

    Thanks!!!!

    See the Show source version of the link above.

    Clicking the line number link will take you to the part of the page source that it's referring to, which should help you figure out where in your templates its located.

    easy;

    try naming your template files so when you validate and W3C displays output, it will also display the name of your template.

    How?

    Add this to every template bar header.php

    <!--name of your template-->

    try around:
    <body>
    <div id="container"><!--index.php-->

    It will help you enormously when you view your html via View/Source thru your toolbar.

    Thanks a lot, you guys are magicians!!

    I closed the h1 tag, and now it looks normal in IE!!

    Katie, can I put that comment anywhere in the body? some of my templates (I assume this means .php files) already have it, however I do not see where in the validating page it is telling me which file the error is referring to.

    I just opened all the files and searched for the error.

    Thanks!!

    When you are using the validator you normally provide it with the URL, depending on which page you are trying to validate, a different .php template file is used by WordPress.

    More often than not, it is the index.php file.

    But for Archives, Search, and Single post pages with Comment forms, the following are also used archive.php, search.php and comments.php depending on your theme.
