You don’t need write special HTML for IE7.

Agreed re: Basic html. And certainly in this use case.

But there are somethings IE 7 doesn’t support, or doesn’t support fully/properly. css display:table only has partial support, for example. IE 8, and IE 9 made notable improvements in supporting broader x/html and css specs.

But again, from the code posted earlier, it it doesn’t look like work-arounds should be necessary.

Re: Internet Explorer not displaying table properly

@maverick

HTML and CSS are two different things. In almost all my projects I have to declare in the CSS specific details for the IEs 6-7 or 6-8.

Point well made.

Which was the concept I was trying to communicate, in case it helped Kim. :)

Re: Internet Explorer not displaying table properly

You believe in illusions. There is—in this moment, for example and the most important—no opening <body>.

The opening <body> tag is missing. (The closing tag is there)

Many browsers can likely compensate in rendering – they assume the body tag, but it can cause problems — for example (and I’m speculating), with browsers for the blind and others with disabilities.

It definitely will cause problems validating your code, and can cause other problems with more complex code.

Easy fix though :)

Re: Internet Explorer not displaying table properly

Almost :)

html needs to be structured like this:

<document declaration />
<html>
   <head>
      Meta Data stuff, Title, CSS links or statements, etc.
   </head>
   <body>
      Everything else
   </body>
</html>

You page’s code currently is:

</head>

<div class=“slideshow”> <img src=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/images/3.png” alt=”“ width=“700” height=“84” /> <img src=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/images/4.png” alt=”“ class=“hidden” width=“700” height=“84” /> <img src=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/images/5.png” alt=”“ class=“hidden” width=“700” height=“84” />
</div>
<!— head —>

<div id=“head”>

<ul class=“section_list”> <li><a class=“active” href=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/index.php”>Home</a></li> <li><a href=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/index.php?s=our_work”>Our Work</a></li> <li><a href=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/index.php?s=our_people”>Our People</a></li> <li><a href=“http://www.fonmedia.co.uk/index.php?s=contact_us”>Contact Us</a></li>
</ul>

</div>

<body>
<body id=“front”>

To solve your validation issues and possible glitches in rending the page

  • Only use one body tag per html document. The second one, with the id, is the one I’m presuming you want to keep.
  • move the <div class=“slideshow”> and <div id=“head”> blocks of code in between your <body></body> tags.

Re: Internet Explorer not displaying table properly

Thanks Maverick! I originally had tried to organise it like that but was having trouble getting the slideshow to work and ended up moving things around a little too much. Cheers!
