    I just launched my first website this week, only to discover it doesn't display properly in Internet Explorer 6.0 and 9.0. The site is www.catherinelanigan.com. Basically, the left sidebar appears out of place, as does the spry menu bar. The site looks fine in Safari, Chrome and Firefox, so I'm at a loss as to what the problem could be. Has anyone had this problem? Is there something I'm missing? Any help is appreciated.

    IE 6 is going to display slightly different, but since you say both 9 and 6 I would tend to think it's part to do with the CSS code that is specific to those browsers. ( you have a single statement for ie6 and 9 )

    Never quite seen it done that way (in the CSS file), I always use conditional statements that are loaded in the head of the document ( after the CSS is loaded ), to let the browser determine which statements to process.

    Thanks for your reply. I see where I made the single statement (for IE 6 and 9) in the CSS file, but that statement was only for the gradient feature in the heading bars. I'm having problems with the placement of elements. For example, the "leftsidebar" appears on the right when viewed in IE (wrong) and on the left, where it should be, when viewed in the other browsers.

    The sidebar also appears on the right when I look at it in IE7, and the main content is shoved down below it.This could be something to do with the way IE reads the box model, or it could be from something else.
    I notice you have a fair bit of styling stil in your HTML code - maybe if you got it all out of there and into your external CSS file it would make it more obvious what needs to be changed?

    Hmm right now when I was looking at it on IE the background isn't showing up but on the Fire Fox it is showing your background image. IE is really not cooperating well on CSS thou.
