I'm having a heck of a time figuring out why my content isn't floating in IE7 mode when it works in other browsers.

If you looks at the content right below the slideshow for events: http://whatcommuseum.org/home-page they are supposed to be horizontal not vertical.

//mod edit: moved: site checks is for critique of finished pages/sites ~gt

Compatibility mode sucks: don't use it

Delete this line:
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=7"/>

In its place, put this:
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

Compatibility mode is for old, ill written pages coded for IE in quirks mode. IE7 was a pretty decent (for IE) bug fix version, and IE8 did away with the reason for most IE5/6 problems. While v.6 may still have some issues, they are well known and easily worked around. IE7 should have few problems at all in standards mode.



Unplanned code results in a tangled wad of brain-cramping confusion.
