Website looks bad in IE 6.0 (4 posts)

    Hello,
    please help me make my website http://almasy-photography.com more IE friendly.
    At the moment, it looks ok in Firefox, but problematic in IE 6.0
    - transparent PNG images are displaying with light blue background (seems like it's an IE 6.0 issue, but maybe you have an easy fix?)
    - images are not on their places, messing up navigation, and this problem seems to persist even in IE 7.0 (for example at http://almasy-photography.com/archives/4 the photo is too high)

    Thanks!

  2. You have a few missing tags and ID problems that are the cause of some display issues: [Invalid]Markup Validation of almasy-photography.com - W3C Markup Validator. Scroll down in the validation report to see line numbers and source code. But for IE6, at very least you need one of a few different png fixes available: ie6 png fix - Google Search

    Thank you for the reply. I've actually noticed it was not validated, thank you for reminding me. It validates fine now.

    I tried the png fix, followed the instructions, it didn't work on the website, though the demo page said everything's fine. I've tried everything in the troubleshooting guide (checked paths, tried the .php file) without success. Am I missing something?

    One more question: why do the left and right navigational buttons display at the edges of IE window, while they are much closer to the center in Firefox? Is it related to the PNG issue?

    Thanks!

  4. Try this one: DD_belatedPNG: Medicine for your IE6/PNG headache!

    You might need an IE6 specific style sheet to fix the buttons: quirm.net: WordPress and Conditional Comment CSS
