Hi, I hope someone can help me out a bit here.
I have recoded some photo pages to show a large image on mouse over of a thumbnail. The pages work perfectly in Firefox but show quite scrambled in IE.
This problem is beyond my knowledge so I hope someone can give me some advice on how to fix this.

This is one of the pages

Any help and advice appreciated, thanks.

Some of your photos are rather nice. :thumbsup:

You might want to consider fixing the syntax errors. You never know when one of the browsers will change their parsing engines to only accept code that validates properly. Truth be told, if they ever did that, probably 99% (my guess) of the web would be down, but it is i still a good idea to make it as correct as possible. I am actually sort of surprised IE renders it like you want.

Thanks groovicus for the compliments. :thumbsup: I really like taking photos and I think I am getting better at it, a half decent camera helps.

I ran my pages through a validator programme and it seems to have cleaned up the code a lot. They are now coded in CSS so I am now having to learn a new language just when I had a handle on HTML. :flowers:

At least I now have the pages working with the pop up staying put even when the page is scrolled.

Thanks for the help.


(I'm sure I will have more questions now about CSS.) :trumpet:
