    Ok first off, let me state that I am a relative noob to web design. My background is in design and CMS not pure coding. However, I have picked up enough to build a decent site from scratch. In this case however, I am bodging together several parts of sites to make a small personal site for my resume. When I have the time I will re-code the whole thing from scratch with much nicer code. The CSS and HTML are a disaster but it is what I have to work with at the moment. I do know better than to code this way, so please spare the lectures .

    Anyhow, right now I have everything displaying ok in most browsers but as usual IE is giving me headaches.

    The nav bar at the top is where the problem lies. The drop down sub menu displays in the wrong location in IE. As best I can figure this is related to the css transform property not being recognized by IE. There is an alternate ie.css file but I don't know how to translate the webkit/mozilla transform to DXImageTransform for IE. I could be totally off the mark here. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Also the image rotator that is iframed in does not function in IE. Is this an issue with the framing or something else I have missed? The menu is the priority right now though. I normally can research my way through these problems, but this time I feel like I need and IE expert sleuth. :hot:

    The site can be found at:

    All versions of IE ?

    I sometimes need a doc type declared to display some elements of CSS properly.

    BTW... Your ADS are centered in the middle of the page on safari on an iPhone

    Just so you know

    A lot of what you'll need to solve your various issues in IE can be found here. Since you're using HTML5, you're going to need something like this for IE. It probably won't solve everything, but it will solve quite a bit of it.

    When you use this on your various elements, be sure to use position: relative with the elements as well. I've found that sometimes IE won't render as intended without it.
