  • It looks as though you have it corrected. I’m currently having the same problem I suspect you were having.

    Firefox displays beautifully. IE is a wreck.

    What’s the fix?

    The first thing to do is to make your page valid. It shows up with 52 errors in the markup, currently.

    It’s amazing how valid pages tend to “just work”.

    Yeah but when I validated the css alone, it showed no errors, and my css editor previewed it just fine in IE, and in every other browser, so I’m getting inconsistent feedback.

    No need to be a wise guy. It’s not helpful.




    33 errors and they’re not minor ones..

    the first one, for instance:

    Error Line 140 column 13: ID "bot" already defined.

    <div id="bot"><li><a href="

    An "id" is a unique identifier. Each time this attribute is used in a document it must have a different value. If you are using this attribute as a hook for style sheets it may be more appropriate to use classes (which group elements) than id (which are used to identify exactly one element).

    CSS 101: and id is used once, if you want to assign css attributes to more than one <p>, <div>, <span>, etc..
    use class:

    <div class="blah">

    Otto isnt a being a wise guy and what he pointed to is validating the structure of your site, NOT your CSS.

    What’s unhelpful is when someone asks for help, and than spits in your face when you provide it.

    THATS not helpful.
