Hi guys, i have a website (pad.diizy.com) it uses only css for the layout (divs) and it does not, in ANY WAY show up AT ALL IN IE. can someone help. here is the html + external css:
(i did everything in firefox)
index.html

<html>
<head>
<title>Page A day project</title>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css" media="screen, projection">

<script type="text/javascript">
<script src="http://www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js" type="text/javascript">





<body>

<center>

<h>Page-a-day project:<BR>
<div>
<b class="box">
<b class="box1"><b></b></b>
<b class="box2"><b></b></b>
<b class="box3"></b>
<b class="box4"></b>
<b class="box5"></b>
</b> <div class="box_content"><font color=white>
This project is about FUN thats right, i will be trying to make new pages on my website as often as possible. Maybe not on a true day to day scale, but regardless my goal here is to try to alteast make it consistent.
<BR><BR>
Pages:<BR>
<a href="/day1.html">The first</a>

</font>

</div>
<b class="box">
<b class="box5"></b>
<b class="box4"></b>
<b class="box3"></b>
<b class="box2"><b></b></b>
<b class="box1"><b></b></b>
</b>
</div>

</center>

</body>


</html>


style.css


a:link {
color: white;
}
a:visited {
color: white;
}
a:hover {
color: #CCCCCC;
background-color: #333333;
text-decoration: none;
}
a:active {
color: #333333;
}

body {
background-color: #B8B8B8;
font-family: helvetica;
font-variant:small-caps;
color: white;
}

h {
font-family: helvetica;
font-size:25pt;
font-variant:small-caps;
color: black;
}

.box{
width:500px;
display:block;
}
.box *{
display:block;
height:1px;
overflow:hidden;
background:#000000;
}
.box1{
border-right:1px solid #686868;
padding-right:1px;
margin-right:3px;
border-left:1px solid #686868;
padding-left:1px;
margin-left:3px;
background:#2e2e2e;
}
.box2{
border-right:1px solid #a5a5a5;
border-left:1px solid #a5a5a5;
padding:0px 1px;
background:#222222;
margin:0px 1px;
}
.box3{
border-right:1px solid #222222;
border-left:1px solid #222222;
margin:0px 1px;
}
.box4{
border-right:1px solid #686868;
border-left:1px solid #686868;
}
.box5{
border-right:1px solid #2e2e2e;
border-left:1px solid #2e2e2e;
}
.box_content{
width:500px;
padding:0px 0px;
background:#000000;
}

All the .box css stuff is for antialiased borders on the Div tables (not using images)


Any help would be appreciated! thanks in advance!!

well you are missing a closing </ head> tag - that probably isn't helping much :)

Nah, it's not dumb - I'm forever doing stuff like that :)

Try adding a proper Doctype then, if it still doesn't work, I think we can get forensic with it ;)

alright, i have now added the proper doctype ( <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> ), yet, nothing shows. it would be great to understand moreso why this is happening too!

ok, now try validating you file W3C html validator (http://validator.w3.org/)

..and your CSS:

CSS Validator (http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/)

okay, after getting alot of validations (still not validating, but i will be getting that to work) i finally got it working in ie.

Thank you for all your help! I will hopefully be able to one day figure out why this is happening.

Nice one Diizy - seriously, although it sounds a bit of a brush off, but: Doctype - then validate will always get you at least halfway toward soving your problem :)

If you dont want any troubles, use mozila firefox or netscape.
CSS ***** in ie

It was a simple mistake, I've done it lots of times. Also, I noticed in another thread, you posted code without a <title> tag...

Too bad 95% of the world looks at websites in IE, so they have to be designed to appear correctly there.

These posts aren't really very relevant to the subject of the thread.
