I found a similar post here: http://csscreator.com/node/23728, where the person had to reload the page in order to get the page to display correctly. In this case, my problem is w/IE7 and not FF. Any clues? I feel it could also be PHP but just not sure what to fix.

Marc, Greets to Philly, a

Marc,
Greets to Philly, a place that I got to know and love very recently.

Site looks good! It works fine for me in IE7. Just very slightly slower image load times. Yeah, maybe you were experience cacheing or temporary PHP response issues.

Some small appearance issues in IE6, but that's dying anyway, and anyone who is looking for fine photography won't be using that silly browser anyway, IMO.

Cheers, Dave
