I was just at school which has IE8 on their computers so I decided to test my website, and for some reason my links aren't clickable. I was using HTML5 so I switched the doctype to XHTML Strict, which didn't solve anything. I tried messing around a little bit with z-index but I have yet to find a solution.

Could someone maybe help me out?

Thanks.

It looks like it has something to do with this filter I'm using in CSS. I put it in there so that my background image can properly stretch across the screen. When I remove it, the links work, but the background image goes back to its original size which looks bad on big monitors.

-ms-filter: "progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src='../images/oceanbeam.jpg', sizingMethod='scale')";
