  • Well after searching through the forum and other sites on the net I finally got an answer from Guido who is a dead set legend.
    his email below pretty much explains it all IE5 to IE6 basically wont work with straight css ,……you need to use a table to stop things moving around.
    I hope this helps the countles others who are looking for an answer. I am now using Guido’s themes which are easy to mod
    I have checked stats on my other sites and on some of them up to 50% of users are still on IE6.
    So all those themes that use css purely and no tables are pretty much useless to me. Its a pity because the silver lexus theme has the best layout Ive seen for 3 colums http://www.highlandsbydesign.com/theme/silver-lexus-theme/
    I spent days trying to get this theme to work in IE6 and had some mixed success .until I came to the realisation maybe it will never work in IE5 to IE6.
    If somebody does find an answer pleas post here. so everyone can see the answer.

    Dan,

    I think the problem is with a CSS style rule that IE 5 or 6
    can´t handle. Probably something with the relative or
    absolute positioning of the sidebar divisions.

    Looks like people still haven´t found a way to make
    sites that are purely designed with CSS (and no tables for
    the layout) compatible with all the browsers.

    I still use only one HTML table in my layouts that prevents
    things like dropping sidebars, overlapping content, etc …
    from happening.

    You could try out one of my SEO themes and modify it with
    your header image, just to see if it works or not.
