I really need help, I have a client who likes the design I helped them with but its not compatible with IE6. I am posting some screenshots.


The site to the left is the IE6 browser shot, and the one to the right is IE7/8. I don't know what to do.

the site is: diamond nails and spa dot net

thanks!

**begin edit**

as you can see, the information underneath the black header does not appear in IE6. I have tried for hours doing this, I even added a "IF IE6" statement to load another CSS sheet but thats not working either!

thank you in advance for your help

When I open it in IE6 and look at it with the IE Developer Toolbar, it looks like the content is there, but off screen (to far to the left).
Could you post (or a part of) the css that is specific for IE6?

I know your pain and though about what if they there was a firebug addon for explore - So i googled it and found Something Lite Firebug Lite.

Maybe it can help you. I just searched it out and havent tried it. But if it is anything like The firebug for firefox all you need to do is right click in the area on the page that troubles you and a code dialogue thing will pop out at the bottom of the screen, Hover your mouse over each block of code and it will highlight on the actual html page above.

Search for your problem areas, see where they are and try to ammend your code to make fixes.

Hope this Helps.

If you read all the reply's first, you might have noticed my post. There is (many years already) a firebug like tool for IE, called IE Developer Toolbar, and comes from the Microsoft site.

For some reason I missed your post, but thanks for the info about the IE developer toolbar-I really never heard of it before. I'll go check it out.

I have save the page from Firefox on a windows computer to "d:\daniweb\Diamond.... "

Then I save your css as posted in your last post. Opened html-kit and combined the two. As accepted, in IE 6 nothing but trouble. After a closer look at the css I removed a lot of position:relative statements and surprise surprise it started to work in IE 6.

In the attached zip file you see index.html (a partial copy of your problem page) with rewritten css inside. You have to change the url's for the images but this page displays correctly in IE 6.
