    Only footer showing in Internet Explorer 8 and 9

    Hi all, I'm having problems getting my page to view in internet explorer 8 and 9:

    http://www.countywoodburningcentre.co.uk/stoves.html

    I'm checking it through Browserlab and just the footer and background image are showing.

    It's fine in Chrome/firefox/safari.

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hi,


    The problem is caused by your invalid conditional comments where you have made three errors

    Firstly the htm5 shiv is only given to IE8 and under not IE9. Secondly you missed the closing bracket on the script tag an dplaced a dot there instead. Thirdly the closing conditional comments is currupted also.

    This is the correct rule:

    Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->
    That should allow IE to work now.
