Looks great in Firefox, looks like poop stains in IE :( (3 posts)

    Hey guys, I saw a few other forum posts on this stuff, but nothing seems to be resolved. Here's the issues I'm having (I'm very very new to CSS):
    My site looks great in firefox and safari (www.girouxdesign.com), but in IE it looks bad. The three main IE issues are:
    - the entire site is shifted to the left
    - the sidebar stuff seems shifted to the right (see the difference in firefox?)
    - and the CSS border around the images doesn't maintain the color or hover effect in IE.
    I saw I have some CSS errors on my site, but I don't really know how to fix them. Any help would be greatly appreciated with these issues!

    Hi, I am new to css too. I used to build websites but took time off to start a family and wow, things are really different now!

    I started using http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/ and http://validator.w3.org/ to work on fixing markup and css issues. If you try this it may help you understand more of what you are doing. It is helping me.

    I had the opposite problem than what you have. The site I am working on looked fine in IE but looked crazy in Firefox. I was able to play around with the css and make some adjustments so it looked right in both. For me it was trial and error (mostly error =)).

    Here's another url to help understand the difference in Firefox and IE: http://www.search-this.com/2007/03/12/no-margin-for-error/ It seems as though margins are quite different in the two browsers.
