Recommended Posts

here is my store http://ftss.web.aplus.net/osc/index.php?cPath=21.

 

view it in Mozilla - Looks great!

view it in IE - my header is messed up and its left aligned.

 

I noticed in stylesheet.css i took of the 1px border it fixed the header part however i want a 1 px border.

 

 

How do i keep my 1 px border and how do i get it centerd for IE like it is on Mozilla?

IE is "special", as in slightly challenged. The only fix is to figure out how IE wants you to present it with the formatting and then figure out a way that the browsers that do it right the first time won't be thrown off by your "fix".

 

Sad but true. Google will be your best friend in sussing these kinds situations.

 

Nice site BTW.

IE has an embrace and extend version of CSS (I'm not bitter...Not at all :-"

 

Try a regular old center tag just after the body. Might work.

 

Try searching up some CSS references. Some will have a "This works/That doesn't" section you can refer to. "CSS Internet Explorer" will probably get you some good results.

It looks like the IE box model problem.

 

If I try setting your HTML's doctype to HTML 4.01 strict (i.s.o. transitional) the problem seems solved. IE in strict mode is a lot better standards compliant that in transitional mode.

 

The site looks very nice btw, but the HTML code does not, I see an awfulll lot of errors in the HTML!
