Simple style displays wrong in IE6/7 (5 posts)

    I have some link descriptions that are formatted with this tag:

    <span style="font-size: 85%;line-height: 100%;font-style: italic;">

    They look fine in IE 8 and Opera. But they are weirdly messed up in IE 6 or 7. Here's a screenshot that illustrates the difference:

    How can I make make the link descriptions display the same way in IE6 as in IE8?

    A link to your site would help. You could have validation errors or other issues in the underlying markup that are creating the problem.

    You do have a lot of validation errors that could very well be causing your problem.

    I'd certainly get rid of all of the <span style="font-size: 85%; line-height: 115%; font-style: italic;"/> lines as they are not achieving anything and placed, as they are, just before a a closing </a> tag, are more likely to create problems.

    I'm not too worried about the stuff caused by the theme as it seems to work well for others. I corrected the <span...></a></span> issue. It still displays incorrectly in IE 6 and 7 though, and that's what I'm trying to fix right now. Does anyone know how to do that?
