IE problems - background color not loading (3 posts)

    Spending a lot of time trying to get my WP pages to look perfect in IE the way they already do in Firefox. Finally got the format right, but for some reason the blue background color I have outside my div will not load! Here is a sample page:

    in IE, the background just stays white. Losing my mind, anyone have a simple hack or suggestion?

    Doctype should always be first thing on a page, or there will be problems with IE. You have <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8" /> before it.

    Thanks for the reply! I actually do have that line of code on page.php - it's what fixed the bigger problems I was having with the formatting. But that line somehow made the background color disappear. If I remove it, the blue background returns (but the site contents look awful).
