IE5 css positioning

I started to look at it but you have 4 stylesheets, Javascript to change from one small stylesheet to a large stylesheet which does not seem to work, and javascript throughout the page which is also showing errors.

What I suggest, is you first strip it down till you get one stylesheet, remove some of the javascript in the body of the document which is located in the approximately area where you are having problems and see if that makes a difference.

Regards
Day

IE5 css positioning

mark,
I have the same set up (IE 5 on a win 98se box) and I could only see the top nav a row of icons and a message saying "refresh 98 seconds" ticking down. The rest of the page is blank.

IE5 css positioning

...should have added that IE5 for PC has very poor support for CSS2 positioning properties so it is no surprise to see this page choking - especially as you've used an XHTML strict doctype.

...

So it is not possible at all to use CSS2 positioning properties in xhtml strict doctype?

cheers,
