Hey guys, been a while!

After I got my website up and running, i got recruited as a web developer! Couldnt have done it without you guys! (My website thread)

So heres my new problem :

I have been trying to restructure the CSS on this page so that it is understandable on FF, IE6 and IE7. It looks fine on IE7, it can be understood on IE6 but on FF its completely messed up.

Anyone any idea of where to start on fixing this?

The website can be viewed on the following page : The website

Thanks guys.

Just what do you want to do with the CSS? It passes validation ok so Firefox and other browsers ought to be able to handle not discounting their individual quirks (IE :)). You do need a charset meta tag on the pages.

No Character encoding declared at document level

No character encoding information was found within the document, either in an HTML meta element or an XML declaration. It is often recommended to declare the character encoding in the document itself, especially if there is a chance that the document will be read from or saved to disk, CD, etc.

See this tutorial on character encoding for techniques and explanations.


Tidy did hiccup on this:

Result: 0 errors / 4 warnings

line 225 column 469 - Warning: '<' + '/' + letter not allowed here
line 11 column 1 - Warning: <input> ID "__VIEWSTATE" uses XML ID syntax
line 82 column 13 - Warning: <a> attribute "href" lacks value
line 200 column 67 - Warning: <a> escaping malformed URI reference


Malformed URI refers to your email link. Where you have to have spaces, use "%20" (without quotes) for everyspace.

The JS used must have all closing tags delimited: "<\/div>"

Rest are self explanatory.

First try putting the character encoding that you want to use as you are making browsers fall back to the user's default encoding and you may be seeing something different than what I'm seeing. I do see the differences in text layout between FF and IE. Welcome to the What the Heck's with IE Club.
