Website wont appear in IE, Help me please?

The website I have built works fine in Firefox and Safari but when you get it in Internet Explorer its just chaos. Built sites this way before not usually a problem. Any Ideas?

Heres the site.

No idea after pouring over your code for a while. sorry :icon_confused:

General rule of thumb is to code it for IE in the first place as this is easily the worst browser as far as compatibility is concerned.

It's a shame the general windows user base has no idea what a browser is when you ask them otherwise we'd have everyone on safari, opera and firefox by now :icon_mad:
Shouldn't it have a doc type? Dunno if that makes any difference though....

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "[URL][/URL]">
<html xmlns="[URL=""]XHTML namespace[/URL]">
I've heard of some problems to do with the browser and displaying images and that is just to do with the program itself, however your code is very poor, as Boss said you need a doctype and dont use tables.

Looking at it though it's how you have embedded the flash elements.

EDIT: Try saving the images as .PNG files. Then use the PNG Fix for IE.

Ive built site this way before just slicing from a table in photoshop (lazy i know) but how can you build a website without a table? i usually just put swf/java script code into the cell in the table? no?
