    Fixing IE's Screw-ups

    Okay, so I've finished the real coding for this layout, and now I'm onto fixing the bugs, rendering issues, etc. I've fixed most everything aside from a small issue in FF that I'm pretty confidant I can fix. IE, on the other hand, looks way out of place. I'm only even decently-versed in straight CSS, since this is my first real CSS-based layout. As such, I really don't know anything about the various CSS hacks out there to fix issues with this browser or that, and so I was hoping I could get a bit of help on cleaning up IE.

    The main issues I need resolved are:
    • 1) The side navbars aren't heeding the margin-top: 4px bit.
      2) The right navbar is way to the right adding a horizontal scroll bar and just generally screwing things up.
      3) That issue in FF I mentioned is here too: the "< Back Home UserCP" bit isn't floating to the right correctly. It should be directly across from the "Currently viewing" part, aligned to the right.

    That's about it. I don't want to ask too much, but if you could explain the hacks a bit that'd be cool. Otherwise I'll just stroll around the forum and see what I can pick up.

    Thanks in advance.

    Start by removing all the rubbish before the DTD. If there's anything before the DTD, IE goes into quirks mode. Fix that and see what happens - it might fix a few of your problems (although it might also give you more that you weren't aware of).

    Whoops. Yeah, that brings up a few things:
    • Opera: Minor issue with the text in the Categories box on the right navbar.
    • Camino: The left navbar doesn't have a margin between it and the header.
    • IE6: Broken between the "< Back Home UserCP" bit and the #mini_header.

    IE5 for Mac is rendering it better than IE6. (Which either means IE isn't getting better or my code isn't up to par. Either way, it makes me sad. :P)
