You will be unable to scroll (use) my website if you IE8 and I can't figure out why. The XHTML and CSS passes the validations with only a few minor problems.

Check the site out here: Power Zone Equipment

I admit the CSS is kind of a mess. This is a site designed by someone else and I'm mostly doing the data side of it so I'm not in any position to redo the whole CSS and layout. Just need to get this IE8 problem solved.

wrong css in iefix.css

@charset "utf-8";
/* CSS Document */

body{
overflow: hidden;  /*I did this to get rid of the bottom scroll bar in IE*/
}

got rid of all scroll bars in IE
reset the width of the divs to % instead of fixed pixels then the site wont have horizontal scrollbars and the iefix.css file can be removed

I changed that iefix.css code and now it's working satisfactory. I'll have to tweak it a bit more later.

Thanks for your help.

your welcome
its easier to tweak design than tweak display
example
column widths of 10% 60% 30%
work in all browsers at all screen res, at all window sizes

column widths of 100px 600px 300px look the same but
at screen sizes less than 1024,
or with a window open to half screen,
create horizontal scroll bars and dont fit to window
