Yes, maybe it's stupid, but this is my second website and I'm creating one with CSS/XHTML, not with JavaScript.

Very plain, very simple; not a bad thing.

Your use of div/span for those lists is not semantic really, think about changing them to a ul or dl set of list elements.

You could do with keeping your right hand link panel from sliding under the left text when viewport narrowed.

No h1 tag used (minorish point)

Quite a different layout in IE6

Your server is serving up pages as text/html you should not be using the XHTML 1.1 DTD with prolog this is reserved for mime types XHTML+xml and the prolog throws IE6 into quirks mode anyway, so is not desirable to include it. Drop the DTD down to 1.0.

I think it does not display what you had in mind when viewed in IE/Win

Is that a current photo of you?

Well, I'm creating this site with Notepad2, TopStyle Lite and Firefox 1.5.

Does not really explain the fact that the site renders differently in IE, unless of course you are saying that you don't give a hang about that target group, which you are quite entitled to with your own site.

Laughing out loud ok that's cool better to prevent IE seeing the page at all rather than a slightly wonky version, I presume you must know that IE can't parse xml, seeing as how quickly you re-configured your server.

Not a fan of the hover effect over news on the front page. Also your page does something very odd when you click on 'photo' and then going one page back takes you to the home page, not the about page.
Where's .lt - is that Latvia? Or Lithuania?

How to get help
Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.

Well, if what I've been reading on the Forum is correct this might well be explained by the xml prologue, which apparently forces IE into "quirks" mode.

.htaccess, of course.

Now that you serve up pages as xhtml+xml IE of course can not parse the page as it doesn't have a true xml parser for some odd reason, as it does not recognize that mime type all you now get is a download dialog box. You could content negotiate the server response with PHP which is quite fun to work out and there are scripts out there to use/adapt; then each browser would be served the mime type it required.

The point about xhtml 1.1 and it's correct mime type is that unless you are actually making use of the extensible part of XHTML then there is absolutely no benefit to be gained from using the 1.1 DTD and as the W3C permits you may as well serve up as 1.0 with type text/html as your code is essentially html written to conform to xml well formdedness rules, which is a good thing.

I wrote a bit on the subject in the 'How To' section.
