Site: http://dev.northwestnavigator.com (becomes www, rather than dev on Friday, Oct. 1)

Problems:

1. Header images misaligned in IE/Win 5.x
2. Story div on story pages drop below right side div in IE/Win 5.x
3. Font sizes too small in IE/Win 5.x - how do I make them look the same as in other browsers?

The site works fine in IE/Win 6, IE/Mac 5, Gecko-based browsers, and KHTML-based browsers.

Thank you!

Help with IE/Win 5.x CSS problems please

Before I even look at your site I will say that IE5x has many css problems this is especially true for the css box model, the normal way of correcting IE5x's problems is to use Tantek's Box model hack, this however isn't the best way because it means that you have hacks in your main css file which should be avoided.

I think that the best way is to use conditional comments to pass IE5x browsers a different css file with the correct values.

If you need more information on this then i can provide it

Hope this makes sense

Tom

I understand Tantek's box model hack and I'm using a variation on it already. The problem divs have no margin, no padding, and no border so IE 5.x's box model woes shouldn't be the culprit. (I think)
