Hey all, seems to be a growing time span between my posts. My site finally has some content, as worthless as it may be... lol. I'm having some trouble getting my site to render properly in any of the internet explorers. I was going to attempt to solve this using a dynamic style sheet with different rules for each browser, but i have run into a bit of a speed bump. First of all, I have Vista, which makes running ie6 very difficult and if i run an image of XP with ie6, I don't have my virtual host set up. Secondly, I was trying to make my site work in all browsers, as it was working in ie7, and somewhere along the way, I fixed it for safari, opera, and firefox, while simultaneously breaking it in ie7. I was willing to have a faulty site in ie6 so long as it was functioning properly in ie7. I somehow justified it, dont ask me how. Anybody got anything for me? ...THANKS!!

...I suppose it would help to have the address http://www.matthewjacobus.com

The major problem is IE doesn't like to follow any standards. Infact, IE7 is only the starting point in which they're somewhat confirming to W3C standards. You will have to find a way to hack the CSS script such that IE7 will run well. IE6 and 7 is vital because most users today are on XP using IE6 and new potential Vista users are using IE7. It will take a while before the norm has completely moved on from IE6.

Don't forget about Firefox... it's eating the big "e"-berries.
