Works great in Safari, Netscape....but IE is a butcher. On the main page it leaves about 2px of blank space to the right of the photo, the whole right side actually. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

*Also bulleted lists in IE are weird, the bullet sits higher than the text.

Extra space in IE, right side only.

I think its the right margin. I used a -2px value and it's fine. IE is garbage.

IE also does not display your footer correctly Crying The text is running into the top line of the bottom box.

Maybe IE is garbage ... but a lot of people use it. This unfortunately, leaves us in a difficult situation making it work for the browsers we like and also for all the others out there who use what is provided for them.

My two cents!

Not maybe...IE is definitely the most garbage browser out there. Microsoft, you suck big time. However 9.5 out of 10 times you can make things work accross the board. If sites are created using today's standard then there is no problem at all, however it takes a while to get used to knowing how to use today's standards....that just comes with time and experience.

I will answer this problem if you give me some time (like later this evening)...but right now I'm late for class :? sorry...

Extra space in IE, right side only.

I worked through the problem with the extra white space on the right by using Tantek Celik's Box model hack, but my latest dilemna is that under portfolio > print; I have two divs inside of my "rightcontent div", one called "thumbnails", one called "thumbnaildescription". One floats to the left, one two the right. This does not work out at all in IE. That's what I'm up against now. In IE it the description falls below the thumbnails and occupies the entire width of the container div.

The footer is the result of a line-height:0...very bad, so I am fixing that. Thanks folks. I have not reposted my work yet, tomorrow I will.
