    Hey there guys, i'm trying to finished up a site and it looks perfect in Safari, FF but when IE comes to town, you want to pull your hair out.

    So my current woes is in IE 6,7.

    IE6
    1. The navigation floats right I(Its suppose to be center with margin: 0 auto, and there is no rule that says float right.
    2. The left side of my sliding doors ( rounded nav) does not show up.
    3. Drop down menu doesn't work as well.
    4. In my 3 main boxe ( they absolute position) The content inside (h2, ul list) are pushed way up.


    IE7
    1. Nav stays center, just sliding doors left side img does not appear
    Same as 4 in IE6 problem


    I've been trying to figure out different solutions to make these elements work the way there suppose to but no luck. The only alternative i have at the moment is to write IE6, IE7 only css rules. Thats something i really dont want to do. I still need to clean up alot of the css so please excuses the mess.

    Heres the css and xhtml filenotaless.net/ie_problems.zip

    Give us the real URL, not a zipped file.

    If we have to look at it, in the least, we don't have time to duplicate the whole page.

    You're right about not using "hacks". You should not have to.

    If you don't have the site online, you'll have to do that so we can see it.

    Nevermind my last post ...

    You zipped it so it will open properly (good).

    I'll take a look later this evening.

    wow ... very complicated CSS and HTML ...

    I think you're making it harder than it needs to be.

    The "pushed right" problem happens around here ...
    I commented out the part below and it moves to the left:

    #nav_ul_one {
    /* margin-left:23em; */
    }


    Then, I tried working on the centering ... now, there's so much other
    absolute and margin positioning, I'm not sure if this is fixable or not ...

    But I did these changes:

    #nav_container {
    margin:0 auto;
    width:600px;
    height:35px;
    font-size:12px;
    padding-top:0.7em;
    text-align:center;
    }


    I didn't check it again with FF or Safari.

    I actually finally gave up.
    It was too time consuming to fix.

    Maybe someone else has the time to look at this?

    I've been working on it all day today. I think i have most of the problems fixed (and cleaned up so much unneeded blocks of bloat.

    I'll upload the results later. Thank you for even taking the time to take a peek at earlier today mlseim. I hope to return the favor.

    Cheers
    -Mike
