Menu OK in Firefox & Safari but not IE

Menu OK in Firefox & Safari but not IE

I have a page: tour_new.shtm that works fine in Firefox and Safari but not in IE.

Saw the FAQ about the DOC type but that is fine - I think
(DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN").

It's the Tour Operators / Group Travel - Travel Agents menu in the middle of the page.

Help, project is supposed to be done - any ideas?

your doctype tag is not complete:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

it is missing the link to the DTD:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">

IE needs to be told both what doctype to use, and how to render it

Wow, am I glad there are geniuses out there - thanks that did it!

BUT... now the text alignment on the page is centered and not left justifed. Is that because of the "loose" in the DOC type? Can something else be used that will not center text in IE?

I guess I can add align=left or set the css for the table to left align but just wondering.

Thanks again, client calling at 1:00 and they will be much happier now that they can review the structure of the menu.

Do you mean on the menu?

The text alignment on the main page looks fine.

On the menu, edit the CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css file. add:
text-align: left;

to the ul#cssmw > li > a, ul#cssmw > li > a:link {

sorry, I added text-align:left to the "maincontent" css class - solved the problem.

Have a couple other questions but I will post under new threads
