i've been told that my site breaks in IE 5, and i've seen a screenshot, but i can't test it myself since i can't download IE5. Tongue

someone suggested a workaround for me, which i tested here but i don't know whether that solves the problem or not.

anybody willing to help me out?

oh, and let me know if you need to see my CSS. thanks!

p.s. i'm new here, this is my first post. :mrgreen:

Greetings, Salutations, and Hello

I can't vouch for IE5, but I did notice a few issues on your original site while using WinXP Home/ IE6 @ 1024x768. The items in your top right corner aren't aligning well and I'm getting a javascript error.

I didn't see any problems on your workaround page, so you seem to have fixed the problem, at least in IE6.

Here are some screenshots of your workaround page in various browser/OS combinations, courtesy of BrowserCam.

problem with my site in IE 5

thanks for your reply. i was aware that there was a slight misalignment with the columns in IE, but you're right, the workaround seems to fix that better. (still a few pixels off, but fine by me, since I use Firebird anyway. Laughing out loud )

what javascript error are you getting? um, i don't know much about javascript, but hopefully i can pinpoint the culprit so i can remove it from my site.

thanks for the screenshots! that BrowserCam site looks to be extremely useful, unfortunately i don't have the $10 to spend on it. i wonder if there are any free versions of the program?

according to the screenshots, the workaround seems to have fixed the main problem, but it exposed a few more bugs i'll have to work around.

problem with my site in IE 5

The workaround clears up the javascript error as well; if you still need to know, I attached it as a screenshot (and yes- I am that lazy Laughing out loud )

I've found BrowserCam extremely useful- they don't quite have a free version, but they do offer an 8-hour free trial. It seems puny but 8 hours of submitting screen captures is actually quite a bit. Laughing out loud

Good Luck...

problem with my site in IE 5

thanks a lot! Laughing out loud well, glad to hear the workaround fixed it, so i'll just be using that for my css instead.

an 8-hour free trial seems more than reasonable, only i'm wondering if it will be able to take screenshots of all my different skins. am using a stylesheet switcher, so i don't have alternate urls to point the browsercam to. browsercam does look to be extremely useful, and i'll probably be promoting it to a group of web designers and developers i am friendly with.

thanks a lot for your help! :mrgreen:

I think the option would be make different versions of your page making the deafult style sheet different for each version and then do a test on the different versions you have.
