[resolved] IE Background Image Display Problem (3 posts)

    I am having trouble getting my background image to display on the left side of my page in IE. I have searched the web for the right IE hack and can't seem to find one that works. Here is my temporary page and stylesheet:

    HTML
    http://www.juliakm.com/blog/

    CSS
    http://www.juliakm.com/blog/wp-content/themes/plaintxtBlog/style.css

    Currently, the page displays well in Firefox, Opera, and Flock. It also validates in XHTML and has one error in CSS. I cannot figure out how to fix the CSS error because it is connected to the widget plug-in and not my stylesheet. I am using a modified version of the plaintxtBlog theme.

    Thank you in advance for any help,
    Julia

    You could fix that last css error by editing your widget plugin.

    For IE hacks here's a link:

    At the bottom of that article are some more links. Following those will bring you to more links. Eventually (usually within a few days) you will find your answer, Grasshopper.

    EDIT: BTW, I am about THIS CLOSE to just putting up a note on my site saying I don't support broken browsers and to hell with IE <=v6.

    Thanks for the great CSS link Yosemite. I fixed the problem by creating a new div wrapper for my content section and setting its width to 100%. IE is infuriating!
