    header and index not communicating causes CSS errors:

    The websites homepage is displaying elements incorrectly in IE. I think it has something to do with the header and the index not communicating properly and this is causing the CSS not to render properly.
    From what I can tell by looking at the site:


    with my design tools I see that it looks like all of the CSS, META, and Script tags are being pulled in the body. The site displays properly in all other browsers but not in IE.

    I'm totally baffled with whats going on at this point so I really will appreciate the assist.

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

    What do you think this error means in the validator page:


    "Line 1, Column 1: character "" not allowed in prolog"

    in and effort to keep you up to speed let me give you a few details of what is going on. I bought a theme, in the default theme none of these css problems are happening. But the way the information with in the page was displaying want not to the liking of my client. I went and made some changes every thing appeared to be working good and then all of this ie non-sense started happening. I currently have the default version of the index up on the site:


    And you will notice that its displaying in ie just fine. so what I have been doing is looking and the original index.php file validation results vs the edited index.php results the error above is the first of 4 differences. I'm looking more closely at this one my end 2.

    Thanks for the help

    I'm sorry but as you are using a commercial theme, you need to seek support from the theme's vendors. In the meantime, I suggest you re-upload a fresh copy of the original theme.
