View Full Version : IE differences

10-16-2004, 03:01 AM
Hey guys, I'm making my website and testing in Mozilla Firefox. Now, when I opened it in IE, it was shot to crap. The entire thing was destroyed due to the differences in the parser or whatever of the browser. Is there a website that shows the common downfalls and how to fix? I think the main solution is to just re make the site and do all CSS/div based "tables" but I'm not about to remake the entire site yet.

IE 5.x is horrible with CSS, IE6 is a lot better, do you have a doctype? That forces IE into standards compliant mode, which will solve a lot of problems in IE6.

If you are using XHTML and the XML prolog, don't use the XML prolog because it throws IE6 back into quirks mode which causes it to use the IE5.5 box model (a bad thing).

(off-topic): Wow! I'm pretty bad with grammar! That enter sentence was, well, only one sentence!
