    IE8 doesnt render a page

    Hello guys,

    I just made a page and it renders ok in FF and IE 6,7 but not in IE8.
    It appears a warning saying "this.0.offsetParent" is null or not an object" and it refers to a jquery plugin. When I delete all the javascripts I get a blanck page without errors.
    I used <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7" />
    and still it didnt work.
    YOu can see it here www.samanthacatering.com, do you have a clue?

    The most common reason for this is the developer is calling offsetParent on an element with 'fixed' position.

    But the thing is that even if I delete all the javascript in it I still get the same result, so what's making this not display is not only the scripts.

    Do you have any other idea?

    Thanks for your help

    If you are having trouble running sites in IE8 that worked in IE7 I strongly recomend 'Compatibility Mode' which lets you search pages that aren't up to speed with IE8 technology. This link is helpful in explaining how it works.

    Thanks, but what was breaking my page was the google analytics code.

    Somehow, when I pasted the GA script most of the page wasnt viewable and the part that was viewvable appeared totally in a wrong place.

    I solved it putting the code in an external script.
