    odd IE problem - FIXED

    what is the name of the Rule that states you figure out the answer to a query only AFTER posting it to a web forum?

    i had some problems that were caused by a missing ">" on a /ul

    Validation

    One word: validation...

    Often, the little things that drive you insane can be spotted fast and easy by simply validating your markup.
    Glad you found it, though.

    I think it must be a derivative of Murphy's law... I know this well.

    i only found the problem after i stopped try to validate the xhtml and for giggles tried to validate the css. "missing > on the </ul> tag on line 112" or some equally obvious error was displayed - not some cryptic message that the xhtml validator output.

    seems there is more than one way to validate, but yeah, i always validate.
