Toggling IE Compatibility Mode makes website(s) work?

Ever visit a website (or build a website yourself) that would not completely load unless you togged compatibility mode off and on a few times? I'm dealing with that now and while it may be a red herring, at least I can eventually get some of the content to show up. [more inside]

Image Map Help

I needed an image map. I'm no coder, so I went looking for a map and code that I could run, change and run it again to see what changed and if I had to change it back. I built a map that seems to be working, except for an small black square icon in the upper left corner. Before I removed the "img scr" line, there was a red "X" in the box. Now, it's just the box itself. I thought that whenever you saw a box like that, it meant the image couldn't be found. But, my entire image is there. When I preview the page in IE and Firefox, the map works and all of my links are where they're supposed to be, but the box won't go away. What is it? Should it go away or will something happen when I publish the site that will make the image nonfunctional? Will it be there when the site goes live? Here is the code - http://pastebin.com/jcFJ433u

Internet explorer development

I've got some JavaScript I want to turn into an extension (plug-in?) so it will always run for certain webpages for Internet Explorer, but because I've been using Chrome/Firefox for years, I don't know what search terms to use. Do you know of a simple how to resource? Grease monkey like alternatives aren't an option for me.

Is there an add-on that allows text to be written over a website?

Is there an add-on for Internet Explorer or Firefox that would allow me to write text on top of the website and then print the site with the text? I have to search records in an online database and then after printing make notations on them; it'd be very handy if I could type the notations straight from the browser.

Oh, Internet Explorer, how I despise you

Oh, Internet Explorer, how I despise you. I'm de facto webmaster for a small Center at a well-known university. I made a web page that, IMO, looks much nicer than the one we have now. Of course it's not properly displaying in IE, but looks fine in Chrome and Firefox. Any idea what code I need to throw in there to make things render okay in IE? Please please don't say I have to go back to a fixed-width wrapper and absolute positioning. Full disclosure: I'm a librarian, not a web designer. 100% self-taught with the HTML and the CSS and all this nonsense. Don't tell me to hire a web designer, because then I won't have a job.

How the hell to get IE to print properly?
