    FF and IE different - table issues


    hello,

    I am having the hardest time understanding what has gone wrong here - the site works in FF and Chrome but in IE the bottom div is floating off to the side as if the document / block level element flow is broken

    I did not design the site - however me being the one whos a bit more knowlageable about css i still cannot answer the question.

    site is http://dgatees.com

    Which version of IE are you having problems with? Iíve tried in IE10 and the site looks the same as other browsers.

    I don't have IE9 and below to test here. When using F12 in IE10, it works correctly until I switch it to IE7 standards mode. There the div with footer_content2 ID is overlapping the text. IS that the issue you're seeing?

    Have you tried removing the comment above the doctype to force it into standards mode?

    If that was the issue, then removing float: left; from #footer_content2 should fix the issue, without breaking other browsers. At least it fixes it here in IE7 mode in IE10.
