Works great so far in all browsers except <IE8, of course.

The site is being developed on twitter Bootstrap. At the bottom of the template.css file, http://happydogdev.com/hdwp/templates/happydogwebproductionsllc/css/template.css, are the specific media queries that aren't working.

Banging my head off the wall, probably something simple. Any ideas?

Hello boogily,
Any time IE doesn't work when other browsers do the very first thing to check would be your DocType.

Your page is running in quirks mode because of the comment ahead of your DocType Declaration. Remove that comment and see what happens.

Did you care to consult the internet before?

That's odd. I spent a while searching, I don't know how I missed that post. I fixed the doctype and had to add some JS and a conditional IE css file. Dumb. Apparently IE8 doesn't work well with media queries, which is what Bootstrap is built on. Yikes. I wish IE would just stop making browsers. Ugh

Now it is 90% there. For some reason, there is a background color sticking to the top right nav, when the css says it shouldn't be there. For now, that is my only issue I see.
