View Full Version : Float Problem with IE

02-16-2009, 09:01 PM

I've a website that's working and displaying fine with Firefox, Opera and Safari, but which goes crazy with Explorer. I've just spent the afternoon Googling round and trying some of the fixes for various float bugs, but I'm not getting anywhere and to be honest I'm a very long way out of my depth.

Part of the problem is probably that the site is not standards compliant because everthing has to be done in a very skewed, roundabout way to make it work with the (extremely esoteric) content management system the company uses.

Anyway if anyone has time to take a look I'd really appreciate it. The site is www.circusmaniacs.com

CSS is visible in source (and too long -- it won't let me quote it here).

Thanks for any help anyone can give!

The code tags should work :/

You can only edit CSS, not HTML? It is so weird seeing a sidebar in a div called footer.

You will never get IE to attempt to perform like the modern browsers without a proper doctype. Use this one on your first line:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"

In addition, you are using some XHTML end tags />. Remove the slash.
Then see where we stand.
