    Hello All,

    I really need some help here. My site, Whale Salad, works great in Firefox and appears just the way I want it, but it IE the menu is in the correct vertical area, but begins below the content. Also what I noticed was that if I give menu the clear: right; tag the same thing happens in Firefox almost as if IE is displaying it that way. So I added clear: none; and the problem remains. Can anyone help? I really want to be able to show my friends and they all use IE, (most of them are noobs obviously). So please reply! And all suggestions are welcome!

    i believe this is just cause the content in your menu is too wide to contain. in ff, it just cuts off the extra length or rearranges it accordingly. try add something like

    overflow: hidden;

    in your css to your

    #menu {

    NEVERMIND. With a little bit of patience I fixed it just fine. Thanks for responding everyone!

  4. Can you share what you did to fix it? :)

    In my limited experience building layouts / templates - then finding out they do not work - then fixing them - can be a frustrating task. The question is not really *what is the fix* but how to set up the commonly used layouts so that they are stable across platform. There are two ways to do that. One is to fit a theme you have confidence in. The other involves a lot of hard study.
