    resolved [RESOLVED] Broken Link Issue

    I created a splash page (splash.html) and placed it in my site's directory (Private Network and I can't share the link). I'm trying to place link on the index.html page, to redirect someone to that slash page, should they need to return to it to select a new site to go to. There are three different sites created and each one is based on different roles.

    Here's the code below for the listed menu. All the other menu links work just fine. If I load this site in Chrome or Firefox, it works fine, but it doesn't work in IE8.

    Is there a fix for that? Is it an issue with IE8?

    HTML Code...
         <div id="south_menu" class="ddsmoothmenu">
                <li><a href="index.html" class="selected">Home</a>
                    	<li><span class="top"></span><span class="bottom"></span></li>
                		<li><a href="splash.html">Role Page</a></li></ul>
                <li><a href="about.html">About Me</a></li>
                <li><a href="compliance.html">Compliance</a>
                        <li><span class="top"></span><span class="bottom"></span></li>
                        <li><a href="accreditation.html">Accreditation</a></li>
                        <li><a href="education.html">Education</a></li>
                        <li><a href="international.html">International</a></li>

    I don't see a reason why it would work in ie8, but if it works in ff and chrome I guess it isn't much of a problem.

    That doesn't make sense... Or did you mean "why it wouldn't work"?

    Thanks, but I'm using IE8 because that's what we use as a corporation as our default browser. I was just stating it works in the other browsers for troubleshooting purposes.

    Thanks anyway.

    You have several empty span tags. Unless you are using a scripting language to fill in content between the tags, it might be affecting IE8.

    I would check that you have a proper document type. IE doesn't parse code as well as other browsers in Quirks Mode.

    Like MP, I can't see anything wrong apart from the empty span tags. If they are not needed, I'd delete them. Otherwise try putting &nbsp; in each span so they are no longer empty.
