I would recommend starting

I would recommend starting getting the 75 errors cleared up on the site so that we are able to easily identify the problem.

Ah .. yes Deuce, that's

Ah .. yes Deuce, that's cute. So the extra white space on IE is because of my xHTML validation errors? ... can you show me a site that has 0 errors?

It throws a bunch of errors about my javascript scripting, but I don't see anything wrong with it.

Ok, so .. so which doctype should I use so that I can access my array elements!

Anyways, if someone could please have a look at my CSS file (leave the xHTML validation alone for now, promise I'll attend to it later), so that I can fix this problem.

Thanx,

flashbot.

Yes, I am cute, thanks! I

Yes, I am cute, thanks! :blushing:
I didn't know you thought me that way! :thumbsup:

I can show you many sites with no validation errors. Do you really want me to list them all?

Maybe you should do some research on the english language, go reread my post, and then let me know exactly where I told you if you validate your code your problem would be solved.

Oh wait, I didn't.

If you would have read my post, you would have noticed I told you to validate your code so we can FIND the problem.
I for one, and many others on this board, are not going to swim through piles of sh*t code to help someone who refuses to help themselves.

hahaha god you made me laugh

hahaha god you made me laugh ... and I don't even know you! Guess you are really an elderly resident ... wow.

Thanks for worring about my English though ... how's your Chinese? :thumbsup:

So I validated as much crap as I could (thanks w3 for making our lives so easy :mad: ).

Now don't be fooled by the "75 erros found" warning. If you look carefully you can probably identify 5-10 true mistakes. But since I'm printing an array with 22 elements guess what ... if Mr. Validator doesn't approve something deriving from that code, it will times it by 22!.

So ... back to the extra white spaces shown in IE ... any news? Wink

Cheers!

Those are just some that some schmuck made I won't go into pineapplehead's, Tyssen's, Deuce's, Hugo's, Ed Seedhouse's or anyone else here. What's the point? Don't ask me.

Besides, I'm not seeing your problem on the page you posted. No whiteness in the places you mention. :?

Thanks

OK, got ya.

One problem is your script is causing markup errors.

Every one of your option tags look like this:'USA That truly does need to be fixed before proceeding.

I'm not saying that is causing the white space but it is causing the dropdowns to be empty.

I am happy to report that Deuce has inspired me to bring my Validator's errors down from 75 to 10.

YIUPIEE! Laughing out loud ... but still can't fix that whitespace gee .... :shrug:

I see 0 validation errors!

I see 0 validation errors! Good work!

The white space under the select menu in IE6 can be got rid of by adding

form
{ margin: 0;
padding: 0;
}

to your style declaration.

Browser can have different default values, so I've zeroed margin and padding on the form element.

I'm working on the other white space now...

Thanks. I'm no designer, so most of my sites take me a while to get to where I want them to be or I have someone else do the designs. Unfortuantly, when you rely on someone else for designs, you end up with ones like 3dstructural.com Sick

Nonetheless, hopefully Katie's answer will help, let us know if it doesn't and I will take a look.

I don't think anyone here will ever be surprised by how bizzare IE can render something.

Make a mental note that IE

Make a mental note that IE can and does get in mess with markup, Comments following floated elements and combined in pairs can trigger the 'duplicate character bug'.

These sorts of problems are often negated though by ensuring that elements have hasLayout i.e dimensions or one of the other trigger properties are set.
