I created a simple little site for our local volunteer fire department and even though it works fine in FireFox, Chrome, and Safari - it is a genuine mess in IE (all versions.) It's still pretty much just a skeleton right now, but I'd hate to move forward and start adding content before I can get it working properly in ALL browsers.

It passed the W3 validation, but I'm still just a green horn and I'm not sure how I can figure out what IE doesn't like about my coding.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Can you post some of the code? IE has it's own challenges but there are definitely a few tricks to be learned!

It would help to also know specifically what issue you are trying to address. (Besides the mozilla specific code you used to try and position the feedback button)

I agree with Groovicus about some more info, as well as what exactly you mean by a "genuine mess" in IE. For me the site displays perfectly in Firefox 5, but in Internet Explorer 8 I get a large black background covering most of the page, as well as a PREV and NEXT button at the bottom that doesn't belong.

I don't have much time to look over the source right now, but I would try commenting out your SCRIPT tags and see if they are causing the issue. Best of luck!

I forgot to mention that other than the aforementioned button, the site renders just fine in IE9 and looks basically the same as it does in Firefox.

I would recommend using HTML5 Boilerplate, or at least a reset.css file like Eric Meyer's Reset CSS. By resetting the styles you'll be able to have a clean slate, so to speak, with each of the browsers. It renders fine in IE9. Use Adobe Browserlab to check earlier versions of IE. NOTE: After resetting your styles (make sure the reset.css file is called before your default.css), you may need to tweak some margins and padding, particularly with <p> and <ul>.

I hope this helps!
