Website appears deformed on Windows Xp but not on Windows 7 HELP! (7 posts)

    Hello, I seem to have encountered a small issue with my website when I was viewing it from a different computer running Windows Xp as its operating system. All the computers in my household run Windows 7 and I've never seen an issue with my website. When I was viewing my site though from that computer, my website was deformed. I tried viewing it on a different web browser but the deformation still remained. I proceeded to check it on my apple desktop, and everything looks great. I gather that my website has something to do with Windows Xp compatability or something because I've checked it from multiple computers running Windows Xp. I'd appreciate some feedback if possible. Thanks in advance!

    Your link doesn't work.

    It is a browser issue not an operating system issue. Most likley the XP machines are running IE6 and there is not much you can do about that.

    Looks fine in IE8 and 9. IE7 is a problem. You can start by correcting these errors, http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3a%2f%2fwww.newjerseycondanilo.com%2f

    You can use a conditional statement for IE7 to turn off the part that is bothering it.

    Ok will this guarantee it to work for individuals using older IE's also?

    Only if the same statement applies to all. Often you will need a different statement for each browser version.

    Guarantee? I don't think that term applies to anything involving computers. :^)
