View Full Version : More Issues with IE

11-24-2009, 09:49 AM
Dealing with the bugs and lack of standards standard support in IE I'm sure causes hours in lost productivity.

Anyway, off soapbox and need help fixing more IE only issues. On this page (http://www.jaytravels.net/travel-planning-sites-i-like/), I have two problems. While the page itself does not validate on w3c's validator, the two errors are not relevant to the issue at hand.

Issue #1 - All versions of IE
If you look at the comments at the bottom of the page in any of the 4 other major browsers, you'll notice numbers to the left of each comment. In IE7, they are under the image and IE8 way off to the right.

Issue #2 - IE8 only
On this same page, the Tweetmeme widget is misaligned. I'm completely lost as to why it appears this way in IE8 only - even IE6 & 7 display it correctly.

Any thoughts and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

There are some errors in your markup, fix them first. See http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.jaytravels.net%2Ftravel-planning-sites-i-like%2F&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0

I apologize everyone, I validated the page "before" I added the test comments - assuming the comments themselves weren't a problem. This was obviously not the case and I apologize for wasting time. I've learned my lessons - a) never AssUMe and b) re-validate before making a post to this forum.

At this point, I've fixed all of the errors except for the 2 I'd already mentioned. The 1st is Yahoo's widget script code itself - which I can't fix without messing up the widget (would invalid attribute cause 'alignment' issues???). The second I frankly don't know how to fix - but it's a navigational element at the top of the page and has nothing to do with the alignment on the bottom.

So, I'm back where I thought I started - Comment # alignment in all versions of IE and Tweetmeme/Yahoo Buzz alignment in IE8.

Sorry again for the mishap - any thoughts would be helpful.

Running out the door but on #1, IE using margin/padding differently than modern browsers on list numbers.
