Fixing Rendering Problems in IE5/6
Posted 30 April 2005 - 10:01 PM
In IE6 the header fails to be shown. If you wiggle the mouse over the navigation links parts of the header show up. If you wiggle the mouse over the "packages" link near the end of the main body text they footer jumps up to meet the main content.
In IE5 the medium grey container behaves very oddly, but the other errors don't seem to occur.
Any ideas about a workaround to this? It is so bloody strange that I just havn't a clue what is going wrong and how it can be fixed. I think it must be something to do with margins, padding and some sort of cascading error in the box model bug but figuring out exactly what part of the markup or CSS is causing it and then devising a suitable work-around is quite another matter.

|Sure your page is valid XHTML strict 1.0.|
But, you have an error in your CSS:
But anyways, who cares about IE? People just needs to learn what is the best.
You cannot expect everyone to change their programs overnight. You have to cater for all. Additionally, the World Wide Web is a device-independant network and so web authors MUST make their sites as accessible as possible to all user agents. That means dealing with bugs in browsers just as much as providing alternatives to browsers which don't support those features at all.
I removed the padding attribute but it has not made any difference in IE6. I only have IE5 on my old machine but I doubt this change has fixed it on that, either. Has any got any other ideas?

The site also needs a name which doesn't have the acronym "BMW" and which would create an acronym consisting of telephone-friendly letters. My initials are BTM, none of which transfer over the telephone well. Urgh.
(EDIT) Since the subject of this topic has been addressed and there are no more rendering errors, I won't use it any more.
