    hi, thanks for the links - i tried it in netrenderer and sort of got half a webpage back, i screengrabbed and tried to attach but its too large, if you try the url: Victory Composites Ltd

    in netrenderer you'll see.. so im not sure if this is what itd look like in IE, or just because a) its a jquery based site b) its just what netrenderer is doing

    on browsershots, ashamedly didnt even know where to start.. there seemed to be no checkboxes for ie..

    sorry and thanks! would be good to know what to d ofrom here

    There we go :p
    Took the liberty of already submitting the site... you can find the link here but it will expire in half an hour unless someone (I'll try to think of it) refreshes it.

    The results are in... but the IE7 failed (not your fault) and I actually forgot that they really only show a screenshot, not an entire page :p

    Hi people

    Not so long ago i posted about the following site and asked what it looked like in IE (as a mac user i dont have it..)

    www.ameliealden.com/stf/test

    I got told here that it works fine in ie6, 7 and 8.. but have recently seen it doesnt work! Its a bit dodgy on IE6, the persons laptop i saw it on has ie7, and its also wrong in ie8 apparently.

    the things that are wrong are:
    a) quick contact tab: is transparent in background
    b) navigation menu - the heading at the top "CONTACT ME" has ended up on 2 lines .... CONTACT
    ME
    c) on the homepage, there are rotating grey quotes. in IE they sort of 'overlap' the page to then be centered to the right..

    Can anyone help me out with this? I've tried to add a seperate stylesheet for IE but cant work out what rules to add..or whether this is correct to add - I see no difference

    <!--[if IE]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="my-IE-stylesheet.css" />
    <![endif]-->

    <![if !IE]>
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="my-main-stylesheet.css" />
    <![endif]>

    Any help much appreciated as its a bit urgent

    Hmmm... am not sure about either of those to be honest with you. Harry will hopefully pop along, I'd like to see what he says on that actually.
