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 can I get CSS dropdown menu options triggered by image rollovers, that are cross-browser compatible?

I'm doing a website for free for a good friend of mine who is starting up a business. I've been out of the web monkey loop for a few years and am banging my head against my desk with regards to cross-browser compatibility for CSS dropdown menus -- that include an on hover rollover image as the trigger for the dropdowns.

IE scrollbars shifting placement of centered background image!

CSSfilter: Explorer's scroll bars shift my design's centered background image up or down by about ten pixels when the browser width is less than 880 pixels wide (in other words, on a laptop). Arrgh! It should look like this. Is there a better way to force a centered background image to really be CENTERED?!? [more inside]

My div is sinking in IE

CSS: This should be simple, but I, the super-novice, can't find the answer. I need to figure out how to get my float:right column to sit next to my float:left column, instead of it sitting to the right, but below the left... in IE of course. [more inside]

CSS Issue in Win IE. Help please!

I run a website and am having a little difficulty getting the CSS to work properly in Internet Explorer. I am trying to implement the search field into a little 'pop-up' in the navigation. It works properly in FireFox and Safari, but in IE for Windows the pop-up shifts diagonally instead of directly below. Any ideas on how to fix this?

View CSS cascade on IE for Windows

Is there an application for Internet Explorers on Windows that will let you click on or select a page element and view the cascading css rules that are being applied to that element? (Something similar to the Web Developer toolbar for Firefox or Xyle scope for Safari).

Why does IE hate my website?

Why does IE hate my website? I've got it looking decent in Safari and Firefox, but it looks hideous in Explorer. Having done a fair amount of Googling, I've come to the conclusion that it's probably related to one of Explorer's notorious CSS rendering bugs, but my self-taught CSS and HTML is not enough to enable me to pinpoint and solve the problem.

IE bug with truncation of page

I stumbled across an Internet Explorer display problem today that I just can't figure out.

Internet Explorer vs. CSS

What's your preferred method for dealing with IE's less-than-stellar CSS box-model interpretation (specifically, where it adds padding to DIVs). Currently, I am using 2 divs, the outside one has the "width" attribute set, the inner one the padding. Works, but is kind of clunky.
Do you have anything simpler or more elegant?

Javascript/CSS/IE

I'm having a javascript/CSS/IE problem. I'm working on a website that has a line of buttons at the top for navigation, and when you mouseover the button, a menu drops down giving you sub-options. This is controlled pretty simply with javascript changing the "visibility" attribute in the stylesheet for the menu. A problem arises in IE, however, when there are form elements on the page. If the dynamic drop-down menu overlaps a form element, that form element disappears. (Specifically, this is happening with a menu) You have to reload the page to get it back. Anyone know why this might be happening, or how to fix it? Works fine in NS7, Firefox, Mozilla, etc..... [more inside]

CSS issues with IE

CSS issues with IE. I'm working on a draft for my new photoblog and IE seems to be rendering part of it about 2 pixels off, but I cannot figure out quite why. Here's the page in question. It shows up fine in Mozilla, but in IE the logo and unordered list menu on the right are pushed to the right about 2 pixels, running over the border. I thought I just needed to use the "box model hack," but when I tried that it didn't work. Any tips? [more inside]

IE/Mac Hell

Help, I'm stuck in IE/Mac hell! (It's the only browser we support for Mac at the moment, so it has to work there.) I have a dropdown list with various values: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, etc. One of these values is set by the JSP as the current selected value: . Clicking on the value in the dropdown you want (Page 5, whatever) will bring you to that new page. The code is valid and works perfectly fine in IE/Win, Safari, Mozilla, etc. But on IE/Mac, when the new page loads, the value that's *visible* on screen in the dropdown box is not the currently-selected one, but rather whatever value was the first value in the dropdown list! So you could be on Page 1, go to Page 5, but Page 1 (the first option in the list of options) is what displays in the dropdown. To make matters funkier, when you then click to open that dropdown, it "jumps" to show you that yes, you're really on Page 5, that Page 5 is indeed the selected/highlighted value. So it's a display bug of some sort...?

I've seen plenty of bug reports and workarounds online for Mac/IE, but nearly all of them involve CSS, not core HTML pieces like options/selects. We do use CSS on the site, but it's minimal, and we generally use nested tables, inside which this naughty dropdown resides. Ideas to get around this--maybe javascript to force the correct value to display? Anyone else had this sort of issue? Help!

I have valid XHTML and CSS which won't work in MSIE 6.0.

For some unknown reason, my validating XHTML and CSS is totally broken in MSIE 6.0.. the text doesn't always appear, and will only show up if you minimize the browser and maximize it, or if you scroll down and then back up. This problem is driving me batty! I checked the css-discuss wiki and archives for answers, but no joy.
