Help with CSS -- Firefox vs IE (2 posts)

    I just customized a word press blog website for one of my friends who is going to the Olympics at http://tcdantzler2008olympian.com

    The site looks fine in Firefox 3.0 -- the background image of the text boxes is translucent and the top buttons all line up properly.

    However, I just took a peek in IE 6.0 and it looks horrendous. I guess that IE 6.0 doesn't support the translucent pngs for the background image of the text boxes so those are solid color. And even more bothersome is that 2 of the top buttons get bumped onto a second row.

    Can anyone help me solve these issues?

    And also for some reason there are 2 "home" tabs at the top. I chose the front page to be a static page as opposed to a blog page so I think that is what caused it, and I am not sure how to get rid of the extra home tab.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    IE6 doesn't support png transparency without some help:

    Personally, I'd get rid of the second home button and then lose the space and possibly border between the list items so you have one, contiguous nav bar. That may clear it up.

    And also for some reason there are 2 "home" tabs at the top.

    In your theme, look for a header.php file. The links should be in there. It's not uncommon for one to be hard-coded into the theme. If you're using wp_list_pages to create the page menu (looks like you are), you can also use the exclude argument to get rid of the second link by excluding page ID 16. See:
