Problem: Page SOMETIMES jumps right only in IE. I think it's when a certain picture is displayed in the header slideshow, but can't be certain. It only seems to happen on the following page:
...and also in some pages under that page - accessed by clicking the large pics.


  • I'm using Wordpress as the backend, but I don't think that has any influence.
  • It seems to often happen when I click on one of the main pictures (try "Family")

I wonder if it is something to do with a Div being too big sometimes and overflowing into the other div space.

As I can't identify where the issue is in the css, I would appreciate anyone being able to decipher the whereabouts of the issue by checking the page and finding the relevant possible css issue. Sorry I can't give more than that! I'm not sure what clearfix is, but could it be something to do with that? I have used clear:both in quite a few divs to clear floats. Not sure if it's totally Kosha to do that or not these days!
Stylesheet can be found at the following place:

I see the problem, but

I see the problem, but nothing obvious as the cause; but then, I haven't dug into the markup.

You do have markup errors, and IE tends to have allergic reactions to errors. Using certain characters instead of escaping them can be especially egregious; e.g. < instead of &lt;, or & instead of &amp; can cause problems. Look also for elements that are disallowed in the context they're in.

Using the clear property can sometimes be necessary, but most often is indicative of a problem elsewhere. Let that slide for the time being. Get rid of all the errors first, and change the Doctype to strict.



If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
