Display Problems in IE 6

Display Problems in IE 6

Sites will look fine in IE7 but in IE6 and earlier images and areas will be pushed down and over. It is embarassing to have a client looking at it in IE6 and most of us don't have IE6 loaded to screen for problems..

Had the problem with Site Assist and thought that Site Assist Pro would solve it but it did not.

I really think that WebAssist should created a PDF (or solution video) that tells us what to look for and how to trouble shoot this problem.. These are products that promise not to need special coding skills, but these problems are hard for non-coders and non-CSS experts to solve.

Our output should work in IE6, please post the url of the page you are having difficulty with and we can look into the problem. Without details it is impossible to debug what problems you might be having.

Example of Not Displaying Correctly with IE 6

Right now my client told me that the CSS Menu Writer generated buttons are showing up on the top of the page rather than between the banner and the body.

index.html

Earlier, with the same reviewer, I had made the aircraft picture a bit too wide and it looked fine on IE 7 but pushed the top of the picture below the left column div

aviation.html It has been corrected now by making the picture smaller (just a few pixels ) but again, it looked fine on IE7 but not IE 6

It looks like you have a lot of repeated menu code on top of the page.

I see this repeated three times, twice with an incorrect link:

<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url("../CSSMenuWriter/cssmw_content/menu_ie.css");
</style>
<![endif]-->


and this I see at least twice:
<!--
@import url("CSSMenuWriter/cssmw/menu.css");
-->

I'm not sure if that is part of the problem, but I would probably clean that up a little to remove the repeated code.

I think most of this was solved by the Site Assist Pro update to 1.03 and the CSS Menu update to 2
