[resolved] Fonts large in IE but perfect in Firefox (4 posts)

    I've got a long lasting problem with my blog at: http://levelling.bigkid.com.au/ where the fonts in the boxes on the left are perfect in Firefox but large and clumsy in IE.

    The sister site at http://www.bigkid.com.au/ on which my stylesheet is based is fine.

    I'm out of ideas after trying everything I can think of. Any ideas?

    Okay, I've actually used the stylesheet from the sister site just to see if it fixes the problem, and it doesn't. So it's not simply CSS. I suspect it has something to do with PHP scripts that are spitting out the lists in the sidebars (and so maybe the includes are causing issues - I read about that somewhere?)

    Has anyone ever had similar issues?

    did you validate the site:


    Look, for instance, at #5:


    You have two opening header tags.. consequently everything after that second open tag is going to be in that font size.

    Whooami, you are a scholar and a gentleman/woman. Thank you very much, that fixed it. The page still won't load in IE 7, but that worries me much less.

    FYI I had validated it, but had a bit of trouble interpreting the results, so only closed all the "errors" and not the warnings :)
