Some IE issues

I have been staring at this CSS and HTML for days now and cannot get it to display correctly in IE. I'm trying to get the minimum to display in version 8, I don't care about IE6 or IE7 but need to get it at least looking reasonable in IE8.

Can anyone tell me why:

1) The header area is displaying further down the page and the background image is not

2) Why is it not centered

It displays and works perfectly in Firefox, Safari and Chrome, but IE is throwing a complete nightmare.

Internet Explorer fix? Elements are overlapping.


I'm new to the forum and relatively new to web development. I would be very grateful for some assistance with a website I've been working on:

The website works with no problems in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. However, in Internet Explorer, it's not showing up correctly. Elements are overlapping and the slideshow is not working.

IE9 does not work with max-width and min-width

I am wanting to put a form 100% on screen, but with restrictions for a minimum and maximum width, ie, I want you 100% of the width of the screen, but at most 1250 and at least 950.

Code works in chrome and ff:

<body style="padding:0px;margin:0px;">
<div style="max-width:1250;min-width:950;width:100%;background-color:#F00;">
<div style="width:50%;background-color:#0F0;">
<input style="width:50%;">

Thanks and sorry for my poor english.

My site looks messed up in IE. What am I doing wrong?

Hello everyone,

I am working on my site and I am a total amateur so I would like to ask you guys what am I doing wrong in my CSS code. My site looks fine in Chrome, Mozilla and Opera, but in IE it just looks messed up. Here is my CSS code:

top:120px !important;





bottom: 254px;
