IE compatibility issue on new web project

Posted 04 February 2013 - 01:17 PM

Hello everyone! I've been working on a new website and I just noticed a problem in IE that popped up. I'm kind of at a loss for what might be causing it, so I thought I'd post here to see if anyone with a different perspective might spot the problem. I've also checked w3c validation and there is nothing that it spotted that should be causing it. The link is: http://bit.ly/14AobGu

It works properly in all other browsers but IE. Just scroll down and you'll see what I mean.

Thanks!

It looks fine in IE's "compatibility" mode.. my guess is your columns (home_first_col, home_second_col, home_third_col) are jacked up in IE... so start with the common bugs and investigate.

Side note - I find your absolute paths to be... annoying.

This HTML is malformed:

title="<div class="hover_cont"><h2>Woodland Plantation

If it is correct that this div should be embedded as a title(?) then replace the double-quotes around "hover_cont" with apostrophes, and close the title-tag and its quote where appropriate.

This may occur elsewhere, I haven't checked.

Your code indeed validates, apart from a small style block in the body and some non-existing attributes, but they cannot cause the problems. Speaking of which, when I check your site with IE8, I see no difference with FF16... Is the problem solved? If not, have a look at this tutorial, covering how to target IE in CSS.
