    ie displays my page wrong

    i was wondering why IE is displaying my blog page with a huge white space on the right, while mozilla firefox shows it the way i want, i assume its a CSS issue, but if not this is a link to the php that created the page, --if alot of the php is wrong it might be because i downloaded it as a free script and then using my not so immense knolage tried to modify it to fit my page.

    any help is appreciated

    since someone is bound to do this eventually: your html is not valid, which is likely the cause for this problem

    alright, this should give you a decent start:
    1) errors 1-8: change the meta tag in your head to <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; chartset-iso-8859-1" /> and lose the </meta>

    2) tags and attributes must be in lower case. this should take care of about half your errors

    3) error 16: i don't believe you can have numbers at the start of an id

    4) errors 17-19,44,51-53 change <b /> to <b>

    5) errors 20-25,28-37,40-43 change <br> to <br />

    6) errors 26&27,38&39,45-50,54-56 you must quote all attributes

    thanks for the help its all valid now
    http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=ht...onal&verbose=1
    i was curious why it only works if i tell the validator that its XHTML 1.0 Transitional Encoding: iso-8859-1 --isnt there a way for it to detect that automaticly?


    ---thanks again

    I believe its your html tag thats messing it up, try changing it to this:
    Code:
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en">
