IE 7 and 8 compatibility

I customized the simple menu template on the following website I took over from another designer. The site is still written in tables and I had to insert a new navigation system. The navigation text is not styled at all in IE7 and 8. IE6 still has styling as well as Safari, Chrome, etc.

Any ideas?

most likely your page does not have a doctype declaration before the <html> tag, this will cause IE to render using quirks mode which is not CSS compliant.

make sure your page has a doctype at line 1:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">


if you are still having problems, please provide a link.

I changed the pages with the code you gave me. But still get the problem. I think it has to do with the tables that was used. On the newsletters link I merged some of the columns on the right hand side and had some success, but the menu is still placed way to the right.

One thing I noticed is that you have some incorrect values in your CSS page.

For example, on all of your "a" tag references it has "strong" for the font-weight property. "Strong" is typically used within HTML to designate bold strings but should not be used to define CSS. Your property should be changed to "bold" or a value based on relative structure like 100, 200, 300, etc.

This is what you currently have:

html:
a:link {
color: #eeeeee;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: strong;

}
a:visited {
color: #eeeeee;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: strong;

}
a:hover {
color: #ff0000;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: strong;

}



They should look like this:


html:
a:link {
color: #eeeeee;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;

}
a:visited {
color: #eeeeee;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;

}
a:hover {
color: #ff0000;
text-decoration: none;
font-weight: bold;

}




Cheers,

Brian
