Hi specialists !

I am redesigning a site at the moment and have been checking with Oparea, IE6 and firebird.. all looks fine. However, I had a mate of mine looking at the site (IE6 as well) and it was completely screwed up !

Can you please have a quick look at http://www.fxdomains.com/new1 and tell me if everything seems to be in place and then drop a quick 'seems ok' or 'seems wrong' line please

Cheers !
Regards,
Mike.

Please check !

Ok in IE6, but not so good in Firebird.

motto: Design for IE because thats what most use, check in Moz and Opera, as they help you write good code.

Hint: place this line <?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?> under your doc type as IE will render in quirky mode (as if it was version 5.x), because it expects the doc type at the top.

If it then looks different, it will be because you have not put in any hacks for IE5.x

Please check !

Thanks !

Can you please elaborate on the problems you're seeing in Firebird ?

If any more people can please provide feedback as well ? I'm especially interested in how it renders in IE5, IE5.5 and IE6 (PC and MAC) although any other browsers / Platforms would be good to know as well.

Any advice on what IE hacks it needs ?

Many Thanks,
Mike.
