Page looks funny in IE, looks fine in Chrome, Firefox, Safari

Hi Everyone,
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. This page looks fine in Firefox, Safari, and Chrome, but the formatting gets screwed up in Internet Exploder. Since I'm on a mac, checking is rather difficult for me. Aside from fixes to the code to get this to display properly, does anyone have any advice as to how to check stuff in IE from a mac, aside from 1) buying a PC or 2) asking PC friends to take screen shots? Here's the link:

Ok, that is weird.  It seems to only be altering IE 8.  I did a screenshot test of IE 7 and looked at it in 9 and it doesn't seem to be affected.
I had run your page through the validator before and only came up with unnecessary code for tracing and missing alt tags.  Here is the block of code that first seems to be affected:
<td valign="top" class="style9"><span class="style12">Astor Piazzolla (Arg.)<br />
Alberto Ginastera (Arg.)<br />
Camargo Guarnieri (Brazil)<br />
Juan Orrego-Salas (Chile)<br />
Paquito D’Rivera (Cuba)<br />
Joaquín Nin (Cuba)<br />
Carlos Chavez (Mex.)<br />
<br />
Manuel Ponce (Mex.)<br />
<br />
Silvestre Revueltas (Mex.) <br />
Ricardo Lorenz (Venezuela)<br />
Manuel de Falla (Spain)/ Arr. Kochanski<br />
Xavier Montsalvatge (Spain)</span></td>
I then look at "class='style9'" and "class="style12" right after that:
.style12 {     font-size: 8pt;
     font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
     line-height: 12pt;
     background-color: #FFFFFF;
     color: #000000;
     font-weight: normal;
.style9 {font-size: 9pt;
     font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
     font-weight: bolder;
     color: #0099FF;
     text-align: right;
This tells me that you are not very familiar with code because DW created 2 classes named "style#".  As you can see, both classes are defined, and both want different things, one is 9pt the other 8, one is normal font-weight, the other is bold, but both are defined on the same element.  I see a pattern of this throughout your page which leads to apdivs that don't seem to have a purpose and a long line of <br /> tags to insert line breaks and create spacing instead of using margins and padding.  Most here will argue that while DW is a great tool, a knowledge of HTML & CSS will always be better.  Overall, I don't see any need for anything more complex than 3 styles; one for blue header, one for bold header and one for body text.  Then insert your header 1, header 2, body text, and then put the following content inside table and repeat.
Based on what is there, in order to solve the problem efficiently, I would recommend starting at your template file (assuming you are using one, if not you should look at it for this type of layout).  Then re-layout the body content on the page with the template in tact using the suggestions above.  I would also recommend giving the below tutorial a quick read through in case some of the CSS comments I made did not make sense.

  • Pages load very slowly, but load fine in Chrome and Safari. I've tried disabling add-ons, restarting, even uninstalling and reinstalling with no luck.

  • PDF addresses not longer load and display PDF in Firefox and solutions suggest to other users with problem DON'T WORK (work fine in Chrome and Safari)

    This is an ongoing problem with other users. When putting a PDF in address window of Firefox and clicking go to address FIREFOX WILL NOT LOAD AND DISPLAY THE PDF. This problem has come up in questions from other users on your site. NONE OF THE SUGGESTED SOLUTIONS WORK! (trying either the Firefox PDF viewer or the Acrobat viewer as default viewer)
    I am using Firefox 23.0.1 (as some of the other users with the same problem). This was not a problem in the past with Firefox. Safari and Chrome continue load and display PDFs just fine from their addresses. This is a big problem as I now have to inform people who want to view my PDFs NOT TO USE FIREFOX BUT TO USE SAFARI OR CHROME.

    It appears that a link to a PDF on an internet page will not download in Firefox either!
    I went to this page:
    http://www.nasa.gov/connect/ebooks/earth_art_detail.html#.UjYEzrwsU08
    and tried to download the PDF link at the bottom of the page (Download: PDF 11.3 MB) It didn't work! Nothing happens. Tried it in Safari and it worked flawlessly.
    I have a PDF file of my work in the public_html folder on my URL. I give the address generated by that file to people who want to view my work---this works perfectly in Safari and Chrome. As to your other question, can't bookmark it if I can't get to it in Firefox.

  • My Webpage works fine in Dreamweaver/Firefox & Safari but will not work correctly in IE. Help Please

    Hi,
    I uploaded my page from Dreamweaver yesterday and it works fine in Firefox and Safari, but when i opened it on Internet explorer, the bottom tables have moved and the image links at the top have a white boarder around.
    Webpage link: http://www.gs-designproject.co.uk/home.html
    any help greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Gav

    The white borders around your images are created because they're embedded in links. Add the following to your style sheet:
    a img {
        border: none;
    The problem with the table row at the bottom is this:
    <td colspan="760px" height="40" valign"middle"="">
    The colspan attribute takes the number of columns that you're spanning, not a number of pixels. Judging from the rest of the table, it should be colspan="7".

  • Why does my site work fine in IE7, Firefox & Safari but crash in IE 6?

    Hi there,
    I am slowly putting together an iWeb site
    http://www.thegeorgiacollection.co.uk
    If you click on the furniture tab in the menu the page crashes in IE6. But works fine every where else! I don't really want carry on building this site if it wont work in IE6.
    Does anybody have any ideas?
    Thanks in advance
    doug
    MacbookPro   Mac OS X (10.4.6)  

    It might be because of boarders, I.E. 6 is known to crash iWeb sites that have a border with a width of one point or less: see here: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=304349
    To fix this just enlarge the boarder, or to be on the safe side just dump any borders.
    Hope I could help.

    Hi Jaap,
    Are you sure about your FTP credentials (FTP folder and site URL) that you are using for the upload? Are you able to see the updated files in the remote directory of the FTP server, after you finish uploading the muse file, using an external FTP client like FileZilla?
    Thanks

  • FF4 fonts and photos look funny

    OK, so I installed FF4 in w7, std installation-- the fonts in my usual sites all look funny and disconcerting (I just accepted font defaults, no tweaking). Pictures in my messages on a social site had a white border at top and bottom. Switched back to v 3.6, and everything is normal. I did look and notice that the photos still had a top and bottom border, but it was much less noticeable, so much so that I would not have seen it unless I had been looking for it.
    So my conclusion is that FF4 does not have the graphics stuff down yet. Too bad.

    Don't hijack someone else's thread please.

  • Fonts of a PDF printout looks funny

    Hi,
    I don't know if anybody encounters this kind of problem. Sometimes when i print out a pdf file from Safari, some of the fonts look funny. It's like the letters get really close together. But when I look at in on the screen, it's perfect. I don't know if it's because the fonts don't exist in my OS X, and Acrobat tries to replicate the fonts or it the printer. Does anyone know how to resolve this? Thanks.

  • Video looks funny on G5iMac

    Hi All -
    Suddenly, movies look funny playing in Quicktime -- almost like they have some kind of Photoshop effect. When I play the same .avi files on other Macs, they look fine. Now I'm noticing that streaming video looks weird in Safari.
    Any ideas? Is my video card messed up?
    Thanks!
    dvdmgsr

    What troubleshooting efforts have you tried to correct the problem?
    Have you tried repairing permissions & restarting?
    Which version of Safari are you using?
    Which version of QT are you using?
    Do you have VLC Media Player and/or Perian installed? Both play .avi files in conjunction w/QT.
    Suggest that you also cross-post in the QuickTime for Mac OS Forum if none of the above works for you.

    I have a question about extracting pages.  When I do the function, adobe saves the individual files as "<file name><space><page number>", so the files look like this "filename 1.pdf", "filename 2.pdf", "filename 3.pdf".  Without too many gory details, I am using excel to concatenate some data to dynamically build a hyperlink to these extraced files.  It casues me problems, however, for the space to be the the file name.  Is there any way to change the default behavoir of this function to perhaps use a dash or underscore instead of a space?

    No, you can't change the default naming scheme. You can do it yourself if you extract the pages using a script instead of using the built-in command.

    If the menu bar is hidden then press the F10 key or hold down the Alt key, that should make the menu bar appear.
    Make sure that toolbars like the "Navigation Toolbar" and the "Bookmarks Toolbar" are visible: "View > Toolbars"
    * If items are missing then open the Customize window via "View > Toolbars > Customize" or via "Firefox > Options > Toolbar Layout"
    * If a missing item is in the toolbar palette then drag it back from the Customize window on the toolbar
