IE8 viewing issue?

Hi Guys,
I loaded up PowerStore with PowerCMS back in May and we walked through some of the image uploading errors together. My client is contacting me now with this viewing error within CMS in IE8. I've attached a PDF of a side by side viewing with Firefox and IE8 from his computer. I'm mac and can't see this.

Also somehow his entries on the homepage are now showing up bold. I have attached the local areas of the CMS to edit within my CSS styling on the pages. All the other pages are fine. Just the home page and only on IE8.

Do we have some IE8 issues (wow, imagine that)?
site is www.walkwaygroup.com
Thanks for your input!

Click inside the second block of text (paragraph beginning: 'Depending on your specific needs . . . ) and in the CSS Styles panel change 'font-size' from '110%' to '12px'. That should sort it out.

Alternatively, find the line (somewhere around line 200) and change it there:

<div style="line-height: 150%; float:left; width:269px; font-size: 110%; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">


to

<div style="line-height: 150%; float:left; width:269px; font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">

Neilo,
Thanks for the find. Found those and fixed. Great job, thanks.

Any thoughts on the CMS menu's not showing?

Nice one, - glad it worked.

Will look at the menu from this end, but again difficult without original files. Will have a look!

Sorry - Which CMS Menus? Can you give a bit more info, - another screen-capture?

I'm an idiot - you already posted them.

It's the CMS home page. In IE8 only the first 9 button links to my pages are showing, but in Firefox et al all 26 page link buttons are showing up. I will reattach a side by side comparison from my clients screen grab of the two browsers.

WA Guy / Expert help needed here.

No - I don't know about this - I would have to go some way to be able to reproduce the conditions here.

Jason, Ray etc will probably have the answer to this.

One thing I noticed (novice here ) in regards to the bold font. In the source code, there are tons of <p>tags...just by glancing, I don't think that they are all closed. I was looking around line 205.

Clickhappy, I saw that also when using view source in the Firefox web developer tool bar. But I have no access to those in my original code as the client in the CMS program has somehow done that. When I download to dreamweaver I don't see any of those, only the PHP code to link to the CMS. How can I get in and delete those?

Any ideas?
Thanks for your time!
