View Full Version : Completely stumped

Everything works perfectly in Firefox and Opera. However --- with IE 1 single page has the text in the main headings dropped down and it is partially obscured by the main page. Unfortunately, this is on the HOME page.

It appears to be something with the new IE browser, because I loaded older versions of the webpage (which had no problem) and they behave the same.

Can someone help me with this one? I punt after messing with it for 4 hours.

OS: Windows XP

If you have the same look between your home page and the rest of your site, I can't imagine what the problem would be.

Post a link to your site so we can take a look.

I reverted to an older version of the webpage and problem resolved itself. Only thing that makes sense is that somehow I inadvertently changed something in the body of the page that caused the strange behavior. Odd it only affected IE.

Probably an extra tag, or missing closing tag somewhere. It once took me 30 minutes to figure out why IE wasn't displaying a page that Firefox would. Turns out that instead of a closing <title> tag, I had two opening ones.


<title>This is my title<title>

Appearently, IE doesn't like that ;)

I didn't think of this until now, but perhaps you should try validating (http://validator.w3.org/) the home page you gave up on. Cleaning up validation errors, if you have any, just might fix the problem.
