    CSS with internet explorer


    My website, currently http://12.214.26.185 does not render correctly in IE. It renders in Mozilla and Konqueror. I am posting my css file. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Rather than try to figure out why IE was barfing on your code, I just more or less started over. I feel you were over-using absolute positioning, along with having some funny looking metrics. I simply wrapped everything in a fixed width, centered div, and let everything flow within it.

    The navbar I changed from a non-semantic table structure to a float list of links. The sidebar I floated also. Any additional text you add to the main area will simply flow around it. The main text area is unpositioned.

    The "ids" found in the sidebar links are illegal. Ids may not contain spaces.

    The style sheet is embedded. The html should be valid xhtml1 strict.

    cheers,

    There are those who manage to build a web site without knowing what they're doing; thereby proving to themselves they do, indeed, know what they're doing.

    Gary,

    Thanks for your help. I am new to using CSS and was wondering if you had any recommendations for help on mastering CSS. Any books or websites would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for all of your help. I will look these sites over and hopefully not make the mistakes I made in my first attempt.
