    What is going on with my site in IE6

    OK, built a nice site. Got to testing and here is what it looks like in IE6:http://api.browsershots.org/png/orig...b4bb0acd4c.png
    It seems IE is not responding to the div height rule but I googled this found a hack for it and it still doesn't seem to work the site is live so you can go to it and hit view source and check out the css and html. I'm getting rather frustrated with it. I appreciate it if anyone can find the problem.

    Hi

    Its not possible to view the source on an image file.

    Do you have a link to the live site?

    Thanks Bear, bit silly of me not to notice that.

    Its a while since ive done much designing, but looking at the source, and the CSS file, I would suggest adding the below piece of code (highlighted green) and see if this solves your problem.


    Code:
    .header {
        background-color: #FFFFFF;
        width: 801px;
        background-image: url(../header.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
        z-index: 2;
        position: relative;
            min-height:301px;
            height:auto !important;
            height:310px;
    }

    You could also use all these controls in a background attribute to nest your CSS code!

    Nice sharing,

    I hate IE6. I simply dont program for it and show a message telling people to upgrade instead. Its bloody awful that people still use it, and rather than pandering to them, just block them and tell them, it will eradicate it much faster.

    Or you'll just eliminate that audience.

    Not everyone can upgrade for some reason or another.

    Oh well, that less than 10% still using it will fade fast with the coming of windows 7 and greater awareness about Google Chrome and Firefox, so weighing up 10% more visitors or hundreds of dollars of time, Im inclined to say, sorry but time to upgrade.

    And the cant upgrade thing is a poor reason!

    Your site better not be commercial or have you earn money, you're barring quite many users. E.g. most enterprises and practically all public services run Windows versions which work only with IE6. Employees there have no rights to install any software whatsoever, nor may they upgrade. And being enterprises/public services these entities also are not going to invest anytime soon into buying new licenses.

    It's unwise to shut out exactly such users who are at work and able to buy/consume, in such a case



    Greetings
