Hi guys,

I just launched a web site @ www.santafenights.com. Silly me developed the site on Ubuntu/Firefox and didn't test properly in IE before releasing it to the public. Anyway, when I look at the page in IE 7 (maybe 5 & 6 as well) it seems to have problems loading the image @ http://www.santafenights.com/themes/garland/images/body.png, which makes the header pretty much unreadable.

There's a bit of code in there that looks like it should be a fix, but it doesn't appear to be working.

@import "/themes/garland/fix-ie.css";

Can any kind sould tell me why I'm having this problem or offer a solution?

Thanks very much in advance for any thoughts.

- Lee, SFN

PS: I'm not being lazy - I'm more of a SW engineer/developer than a CSS guru/designer.

No one claimed you are lazy.

No one claimed you are lazy. Everyone has questions, and every once in a while the easy solution never jumps out after you have spent hours on a site.

Lets get the 140+ errors cleaned up first

Then we'll worry about it displaying right on certain browsers.

Thanks for your reply. I'm

Thanks for your reply. I'm kind of hesitant to fix some of those errors - none of that is my code - it's from Drupal's default theme. I'll try and work my through them, but some of them look fine to me e.g.

# Error Line 107, Column 110: document type does not allow element "input" here; missing one of "p", "h1", "h2", "h3", "h4", "h5", "h6", "div", "pre", "address", "fieldset", "ins", "del" start-tag.

…="business" value="[email protected]">" or "") inside an inline element (such as "", "", or "").
