Hey:

I have a new-media and entertainment review site setup at www.rodneypiper.tv

It displays fine when viewed with Firefox and Google Chrome, but when i launch the page using Internet Explorer (all versions), it doesnt show well. Most page elements are cut out!

What can i do? I am aware a large audience still use IE on the web, even though Firefox appears to be a better solution!

Cheers

This a common problem. Have you tried adding doctype to the top of your code? Something like: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> . Your doctype should be modified depending on what type of code you use. (HTML, XHTML...etc) See link below for more doctypes: W3C Doctypes

  • Wow! Thanks a millions. I added the code <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd"> to the top of my page and voila! it displayed neatly in IE. Good job for this site Doctype and kudos to all its members! rodney oleshin about 7 years ago
  • @rodney oleshin: Not having a doctype will cause the page to display in quirks mode in IE. You might switch the doctype to transitional instead of strict... it is more forgiving. @Jorday: Nice answer. +1 Abinadi Ayerdis about 7 years ago

But your namespace is not correct; it doesn't match your doctype: [Invalid] Markup Validation of www.rodneypiper.tv/ - W3C Markup Validator.
