What is IE doing to my blog?!

Screenshot of the header of this blog viewed in Internet Explorer - showing that something is wrong.

Last night I noticed that Internet Explorer (IE6/Win) is doing something weird to the header of my blog. The white and cream background image is also appearing above the header, which while not disasterous is rather annoying.

I very rarely ever use Internet Explorer these days, only for sites that won’t accept any other browser, such as a particular sections of the Microsoft website. My browsers of choice for the last 18 – 24 months have been Mozilla Firefox and Opera.

It will be interesting to see what Internet Explorer 7 finally turns out like. I’ve downloaded and installed the Beta 2 Preview, and to be honest haven’t been overly impressed with the design or feel of it. Or the way that it renders documents, but as I understand it there is still some way to go before the code is finally completed. The IE Blog is an interesting read, watching the progress.

Anyway, we currently have to live with Internet Explorer’s weirdness, so I’d better put my CSS debugging hat on and find out why IE is doing weird things to my blog.

  1. Fixed. The problem was when I added the menu bar beneath the header image. It’s still out by one pixel in Internet Explorer (IE) but I can live with that.

    IE also does something weird with the link icon after “Website” at the far-right of the menu bar … but that’s IE for you! It looks fine in Mozilla Firefox and Opera, and that’s what matters! 😉
