    So I am using a WordPress blog as a CMS and trying to get things to work out. I still have a lot of work to complete, however, I am faced with an issue when viewing the site in IE. the alignment of the body moves over the left column and I can't figure out why. please help.

    Here is the link...


    Works fine in Firefox and safari.

    It has to do with your stylesheet.

    Any suggestion as to what item within my style sheet? I've looked and can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Please don't take me as the last word on this but the problem as i understand it is that Microsoft, when developing IE, decided the W3 rules on CSS behaviors was not interpreted correctly by the rest of civilization. As a result, IE treats things like margins and paddings differently than Firefox would. Or maybe it's just padding or just margins- i can't remember.

    I ran into this problem as well. I settled on a theme i liked that played nice with both browsers. As a personal side, i don't really care how it renders in IE since i find Firefox a much better browser. Of course, your mileage may vary.

    Look at your blog via Firefox and see if it renders better.

    best of luck,
