View Full Version : Nav bar text not showing in IE but fine in FF

Hi All,

The navigation on my index page is white text on a blue background. In firefox this displays correctly but in IE the white text is not visible. I have been through my style sheet and made various tweaks but to no avail,

I have two pages:


Could anyone advise as to what could be causing this to render differently?

I cannot find the difference between both browsers; however, the browser version may be a factor in determining which code to use; this also includes if the browser supports HTML5, or even the validation type on the HTML page. You may have to find alternatives when changing text color; one suggestion is: <font COLOR="#">; any other additional styling can be added externally. You can also try to use a strict doc-type.

Inline CSS is fine as well: <p style="color: red;">#</p>.

If I saw a difference when checking between the browsers, I would most likely help to find the problem in the source.

Thanks, found it was a javascript conflict between the browsers! this has helped.
