Thank you for the offer! I have been on this forum in the past with css problems
However, I ALWAYS try first. 99% of the time I can figure it out WITH the help of firebug etc. With IE I have always had a more difficult time. Hence this post. But this new work flow of troubleshooting css inconsistencies seems to work really well for me now.
Is the compatibility view fairly close to IE7? both my issues that I worked on with IE8 developer toolbar under compatibility view did fix the problems. I tested in a standalone IE7 installation. Maybe just luck.
-> Off topic. I overheard somebody talking about a js that makes IE6 behave like IE7. Is there such a thing and is this a quick and fast method of being also still consistent for IE6 users? Or would I have to go with a more traditional approach like targeting IE6 users with a separate style sheet? png issues etc..
Part of me wants to just stop coding for IE6 but I think in the US it's still over 10% of the users, so that'd be a bad business decision not to support 10%. (for me personally)
