View Full Version : Strange IE rendering problem

Well, have begun coding my personal portfolio, at last, and ran into this strange rendering problem with IE. Since it's hard to describe, simply visit my website and have a look for yourselves.
All is rendered correctly in ff and opera.
My version of IE is 6.0.2900.2180. I run win XP sp2
My site is located here:
Isaac Keyet - thats me! ;D
Any clever suggestions? Never seen anything like this before :confused:
thanks in advance,

double-posting to announce the solving of my problem!
It turned out IE didn't like me giving <body> a css style. Odd, but true. So in the future, always be careful with the body tag!
over and out.

Did you apply it with the style attribute or with a (embedded or external) stylesheet?
What were the CSS properties and values that you applied to body?

well, i tracked down the problem to the fact that IE dislikes the css property "repeat-x" - which i used. I recon this is a common problem..
Are there any easy ways of solving this matter? tried to put the whole page in a div box, and apply the previous body attributes on it. but then background-attachment didnt work.
this is the code id like to use:
padding: 85px 0px 0px 0px;
Kravvitz: It is an external stylesheet, but i tested applying the code directly onto body, but it caused the same error. thanks for trying to help!

Never seen a problem with that before. Try writing it like the following.
padding: 85px 0 0 0;
background: url(images/main_bg.gif) repeat-x fixed;

I don't remember having a problem with that either.

IE doesn't like inline body attributes period.

Nick Presta: Well, im a graphical art designer, not a programmer, and normally i dont do any coding. so i stick with dreamweaver. and i needed to get this out quick, and havent really got the guts to go css all the way, that explains the tables.

what the heck is a semantic element??
Using elements how they should be used. eg. Heading tags (<h*>) for headings, <p> for paragraphs, and <code> for code.
