    I don't write my posts in Word, which I know has been a problem, but alot of my readers are complaining they can't read my blog on Internet Explorer. There's no archive or sidebar. I checked it on the validator, and it gave me errors, but I don't know what to do to fix it. I reloaded my theme onto my host and it still came up with problems. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Tell them not to use Internet Explorer.

    Your sidebar is displaced down the page for me with Mac Firefox. This can be due to too large content or code errors.

    Well, someone has been doing it...

    The code with mso in it comes from MS Word or MS Office.

    This actually looks to be a CSS problem. While most browsers wouldn't pitch a fit at the sidebar's margin-left: 545px; IE does.

    Both your content and sidebar div's need to be floated left for this to work right and you should use an empty div after them with a clear:both; property.

    So add this to both your #content and #sidebar styles:

    float: left;

    And then add this little line just before your #footer div

    '<div style="clear: both;"></div>'

    And that should fix the problem.

    I am having IE problems not showing sidebar or comments or anything else that Firefox has which is what the site should look like.

    How to fix this without affecting firefox et al?

    need step-by-step as a friend set up the site so which files etc i need to go into.

    did validation but don't know how to get 'lines and columns' to know where to fix....

    IE wasn't even showing the posts but I managed to fix that - all that came up was the header and title of post...now I fixed so I need everything else to show...
