    Anyone viewing my blog from firefox or opera web browsers, they get a grey background, however using internet explorer, my blog looks great and fully functioning...


    Thats the link for my blog :/

    I'd try to validate the site:
    too many errors to be sure where the problem is but unclosed divs definitely are a big no-no :)

    all these errors....

    Cant I do anything about it?

    I just transfered all of my posts from my blogger.com account to my new hosted wordpress account..

    You can just go one error at a time :)
    When on the validation page check the Show Source box and hit Revalidate. After that every line number in the error description will be a link that would take you to the line in the source where the error is. It's much easier to detect where the problems are :)

    I will work on finding this one stupid (or few if they exist) line of code. Soon as I have it killed, wow that would be an accomplishment I guess.

    Edit: I did what you told me, all I can see is errors that come from posts that I have made in the past, probably me importing posts from blogger.com to wordpress directory was the cause.

    the theme itself is totally valid, which strucks me.

    I just found out that the error lies somewhere in here, but it looks great to me, anyone thinks I missed a tiny thing that ruined what the site looks like for me?

    1. Don't post long code here - moderators don't like it ;)
    (next time use http://pastebin.com or a similar service).
    2. in XHTML (do your homework and read about it) every img code has to be closed with /> and a space before it.
    3. There is a font tag in the code above that is not closed etc.
    Just do what I said, go line by line. There is no shortcut.
    One line - correct, save.
    Next line, correct, save. Error and trial. That's the way we all learned...
