View Full Version : Totally Stumped by an IE6 Problem!!

I thought that I had this site ready to launch. It checked out in every browser. Or so I thought. But it seems that someone upgraded our IE6 machine to IE7 and I did not know so ALL of my IE6 tests were bogus.

So, I LAUNCHED the site thinking that all was well, and then discovered two REALLY TOUGH IE6 problems. :(

1) I'm using the following code to light up the active page tab, BUT IT'S NOT WORKING IN IE6.

<ul id="nav">
<li><a class="here" href="index.html">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="whattodo.htm">What To Do</a></li>
<li><a href="mortgage_programs.htm">Programs</a></li>
<li><a href="credit-repair.htm">Credit Repair</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.htm">Contact</a></li>
<li><a href="https://powernodoc.securesites.com/startpage.php">Apply Now</a></li>

2) For some reason my horizontal yellow bar is REALLY WIDE in IE6. Here is the code and the CSS:

<div id="topbar"></div>

#topbar { background: #ffcc00; height: 7px; }


Here is the site: http://www.powermortgage.com

And I am importing the following three CSS sheets:

1) Set Up:

2) Header, Navigation, Left Column, and Footer:

3) Main (center) Content:

I'm sorry for the complexity of the puzzle, but I have spent hours trying to figure it out and I'm at a loss. I'm kind of hoping one of you seasoned pros will be in the mood to check this out and clue me in!

Thank You Very Much!

Looks fine on IE6...or at the least my version of IE6 running on XP.

Very interesting! The one IE6 machine that I've checked it on exhibited the two bugs I mentioned. I'll check the operating system on that machine tomorrow. Funny business!

BTW - for anyone else looking at this thread, I should mention that I tried {zoom: 1;} on all possible divs with no luck.

Thanks again for the feedback. Have a grat day!
