    Site not working in IE

    I'm sure you've seen this 1000 times before, but the site I build "volandproductions.com" is not working in IE. It happens to be IE 6. Do not know about other versions. Safari, Firefox, and Chrome work fine. I've download "csshover3.htc" and added "behavior: url("csshover3.htc");" inside the css file, but the issue persists. The menu bar in IE is broken. Site URL: volandproductions.com, CSS file: volandproductions.com/style2.css. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Most developers don't even bother coding for IE6.. it's long dead.

    I'm mostly a Mac / Unix guy, but I already had a couple of people mention to me that they were having problems looking at the site on IE. Don't know if later versions of IE work. Just don't have access to IE. May be that's a good thing...

    You'd better focus on IE7 and later, plus the mobile browsers. That's already more work than you called for.... And like Wolfshade implied, IE6 has become a rudimentary browser. Just include a javascript that alerts IE6 users that their browser might lack basic functionality for your site, and that they then should use another browser.

    I know right. So don't bother anymore as long as it's working on the others.

    If you absolutely have to code for IE, you can create specific code to be loaded only in IE. I know IE is awful, and I myself do not code for it anymore. A little blurb just comes up and says, 'This site is not available in your current browser.' If you'd like to do something like this, let me know, and I'll dig up some code for you.

    Your site nav isn't working in IE7 (or IE8) because you're using the HTML5 'nav' element which isn't recognised in IE8 and under. Also, you're using an HTML4 doctype, which means these elements are invalid anyway.

    You have two choices:

    - Leave your doctype as it is and convert the nav elements to divs
    - Update your doctype to HTML5, and include this javascript which will give some support for the nav element in IE8 and under
    Use the W3C HTML Validator and CSS Validator to check your code and Firebug to see what css is applied to an element

    @SB65: not full?

    @gfaktor: there are more methods to target IE. See this tutorial, although it begins with making the code valid and the use of HTML5 elements as well.

    Not if you have js disabled.

    Then it doesn't give any support, does it?

    What?
    No, obviously, if you have js disabled, then a js solution offers no help.
    But, if you do, it does.
    I'm not sure what point you're trying to make?

    You wrote: "some support". It is either full support or no support at all.

    The js shim gives 'some support' in the same way that one might ask for 'some help'. Let's not continue this pointless discussion, eh?
