    I've just finished designing a site with Firefox as the primary browser, but when I open the page in internet explorer almost everything is wrong. I'm not really even sure where to start. Do i have to create a new series of pages designed specifically for IE and redirect visitors who are using IE? I'd hate to have to update and coordinate multiple websites just because of the IE issue.

    this is the page

    http://ikstudio.com/

    Thanks for your help. I'm a Noobie so please be gentle.

    Since you have posted this to the introductions forum, I am moving the thread to HTML and CSS Help, where you are more likely to get an answer.

    IE is real particular with CSS and doc type declarations, I see your's is a generic declaration that has no reference to a standard.

    for the doc type to be recognized by IE and not throw the browser into Quirk Mode, it needs to be something like:



    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

    I also see that you are using tables for handling the data, but there are NO table elements defined in the CSS that you are using...

    Typically for elements to be displayed properly in IE, and basic HTML element needs to at least be defined with Height, width, margins and padding.

    since you downloaded the script to generate the pages and effects, maybe the creators of the script could provide some insight.
