    My website / blog is not loading in Explorer at all. Ie freezes and then crashes.

    I've tried removing all javascript on the page and its the same issue.

    Ay idea why?

    Could be a chartset issue.

    Change this:

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

    To:

    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />

    You might have to change it via this page: /wp-admin/options-reading.php

    Thanks for the quick response. I've made the changes but IE is still crashing.

    Does it work if you switch it back to WordPress's 'Default' theme?

    Its on the default theme and it loads.

    What could be the problem with my theme?

    Switch it back so I can have a look @ the broken one. Just to compare the two.

    It's something in the stylesheet. The only error in the validator is:

    See the border-right property is incorrect.

    #left-s{
    width:319px;
    padding-right:45px;
    border-right:px solid #ccc;
    float:left;
    margin-bottom:30px;}

    Change it to:

    #left-s{
    width:319px;
    padding-right:45px;
    border-right: 1px solid #ccc;
    float:left;
    margin-bottom:30px;}

    I got it working.

    It was the way I was styling the date with too many span tags it seems.

    Thanks for all your help, very much appreciated.
