I know it's an outdated browser and it's on its way out but I discovered a hack that will at least fix one of the major issues I had, which was none of the CSS Background images were showing up.
Here's the fix and it's super easy:
Just remove the quotes from the image links and tada, they show up.
background: url(images/link-out.gif) left top no-repeat; Â« Like that
I still can't get my list images to show up but at least now the background is there as intended. Plus, from what I can see, it doesn't effect the way it displays on other browsers.
