    I having problems with IE not liking my external CSS. My website looks right on other web browsers. Both my CSS and XHTML are validated by W3. PLEASE HELP!!
    IE butchering my site - Screenshot1
    IE butchering my site - Screenshot2
    The way my site should look.

    Edit 07/08/2004:

    On screenshots 1&2 it has the old guestbook grpahic and I had recently updated it. But the text is still running into the graphic of the book and the bar still doesnt work.

    I also added a third screenshot, the way it is supposed to look like.

    A link would be helpful wouldn't it. http://www.shieldyrbk.com/concept

    You may like to try this link positioniseverything

    I'm sure you're aware that IE doesn't have great support for css :disappointed: and in some cases may require a few bits of workaround code.

    Hey, I took a look at it and figured it out. The problem is, you are using absolute positioning for the text elements instead of the normal "flow". Compared with, for example Mozilla, IE uses a slightly larger top margin for the "body" element. Thus all your positioning is off about 5-10 pixels, but this is only obvious at certain points in your site, such as the image overlapping the text.

    Try setting the margin properties of the body element to zero (reference: http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/box.html#margin-properties). Good luck.
