[resolved] Layout messed up in internet explorer (6 posts)

    I think my last post got inaccessible to the topic title I chose or something.. either way..

    I have been working on a website for a client.
    Curretnyl the template is being made on http://www.annewesterhof.nl

    The layout shows just fine in firefox, chrome and safari, but is all messed up in IE. I have been trying many things in the css to try and fix this, but can't seem to find the problem.

    Is anyone perhaps familiar with this problem and knows what causes it?

    Nobody? It really is quite weird.. its almost as if all the margins are out of place.. and it ignores height and width statements..

    your site has serious validation errors, and IE is particular sensitive to these.

    start be (re)moving the html that shows before the DOCTYPE declaration - see html code in your browser.

    this is not a wordpress problem.

    Start by sorting out the markup errors. Then move onto the CSS errors.

    If you continue to have problems with IE, consider conditional comment CSS

    Thanks.. oddly enough these validation errors didn't show up a while ago when I tried that to fix the problem... I guess I'll just have to look at them again.

    Thanks anyway, if I still can't fix it after fixing those errors ill check back.

    Next time I'll be sure to check the validation first, even if I've already done it before.

    Thanks guys.. I'm learning so much as I go.
