    Hi everyone
    I am currently developing a website for someone, and was working on it last night, as I left it it all looked fine.
    Have come to it this morning and it looks fine in FF and Opera but IE8 just displays my horizontal nav as a vertical list of links.
    I got the horizontal nav from here: and as I mentioned, it worked fine previously on all browsers but now IE8 doesn't like it.
    If you have IE8, please see page here:
    I have run the page through the W3 validator and it came up with a number of warnings, most just minor such as missing an alt="" out of an img tag and missing a few / out of closing </p>'s but this hasn't solved the problem.
    It also came up with this:
    Line 1, Column 1: character "" not allowed in prolog
    I cant see any space in my file at the start though.

    Can someone please advise.
    Thanks, Adrian

    The only way in which I get this is if I knowingly put IE into quirks mode. In standards mode, it's fine. And since you've declared the XHTML 1.0 Strict doctype, there's no reason for IE to go into quirks mode that I can see. So this may just be a setting within IE that you've changed. Hit F12 and see if you've messed with it.
