Are you still experiencing issues with the CSS on your site and Internet Explorer? If so, would you mind sharing what issues specifically you're having - I checked the site out and it looked just fine in IE10 (well, it looks the same as it does in Chrome).
There are a few things that I would encourage as general tips to having a better cross-browser experience:
- Use a standards doctype: <!DOCTYPE html> will cause your page to appear in Standards-Mode in all major browsers. This prevents it from being rendered in quirks mode, which only exists for backward compatability.
- Validate your markup: Use a validation service online to ensure that your HTML is properly authored, and thus will be properly interpreted by each browser when it's parsed to construct the DOM tree. If different browsers interpret your HTML differently, this could result in unexpected differences in styling.
- Use progressive-enhancement: Don't rely on experimental modern features of CSS. Instead, build your page to use a baseline of features when it comes to design. From there, progressively enhance the design with newer effects. This way, when older browsers come across your page they aren't entirely broken, but rather fall back to supporting only the more primitive feature-set.
Would love to help in any way possible; let me know how things are going.
