css issue with IE (6 posts)

    I have a blog with a content window and two sidebars to the right. Everything is fine in Chrome and Firefox but IE shoves the far right sidebar to the bottom. I have spent some hours giving it room by widening the wrap and reducing content widths and whatnot, nothing seems to work. Is there some trick for IE?

    Try sorting out the 50 markup errors. Then move onto the CSS errors.
    If you continue to have problems with IE, consider conditional comment CSS

    It may be something to do with padding, try setting this padding

    #sidebar-right {
     padding: 1px;

    to 0.
    Some other times it could be situated around widths or inline-block displays.

    Thanx! I had only checked CSS not HTML.
    It was html validation. A few closers missing in my text widgets.

    On the HTML errors...
    The majority of my HTML error are html no longer valid use CSS.
    Mostly with <center> and width="200px".
    What am I suppose to use instead of those?

    <center> tags can be replcated with <div> tags and centred using the CSS margin: 0 auto;.

    width="200px" can be replaced in CSS using the style width: 200px;.
