The css layout that I have works perfectly in firefox, but not in IE. The menu has all extra spaces between them, the background image doesn't show, and the container doesn't look the same. I'm sure you guys have seen this many times...here is my css code:

Thanks to anyone who can help...

body {

	font-family: "Trebuchet MS", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

	font-size: 0.7em;

	background-repeat: repeat;

	background-attachment: scroll;

}

#container {

	width: 600px;

	margin: 0 auto;

	padding: 9px;

	border: .5px solid #6699FF;

	background-color: #ccffff;

}

.ctop, .cbottom{

display:block;

}

.ctop *, .cbottom *{

}

.c2{margin: 0 3px}

?

I'm not quite sure I understand...my background works fine now...its just my container border that doesn't show in IE, and extra spaces in the menu that appear in IE.

Ok, figured out my menu problem, it was my padding with li and ul...I set them to 1.5px 1.5px 1.5px.

Now it's just my border container that I need to fix!

OOOK so I just answered all my questions lol.

Changed the border to 1px instead of .5px

Does anyone have suggestions to make my code any cleaner? I'm just trying to make a perfect template for future sites that I would build.

Thanks!

in that case would you mind changing this to solved.

your code looks decent enough other than you dont need the extra space between each and every line of code.
