So I need any help, please. This is the web site http://marcelodesign.atspace.com

Site problems with IE

Welcome...

You need to remove the first line in your code. This is messing up IE:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

It is a nice layout, but I must say that the faded orange lines with the white background is hard on the eyes. Smile

Site problems with IE

Sorry, I haven't been on here alot lately. I took IE off of my Mac, because I got tired off all of its bugs. The only time I worry about its compatibility is if the client specifically wants the site to look right on IE/Mac. I usually just worry about FF and Safari.

One thing you need to do is validate your site. Errors came up when I did a check. This may or may not solve the IE/Mac issue.

As far as the lines...I think it is the gradients that distract me. It is hard to focus on the rest of the page. Just my opinion. Smile
