Site renders properly in everythign except IE 6 & 7

Hey guys,

New to the forum and to building sites in Dreamweaver. I've just about finished with my first one, and have a minor problem. I'm building this site for someone else who provided the template to use for their site. It looks great in FF, Opera, Safari and mostly everything except IE 6 & 7. I know that IE is not even close to a standards complaint browser, and the template I'm using uses tables and other not so good stuff to make it look good. But, my HTML & CSS validates properly in Dreamweaver's validator. Does anyone know how to fix the issues I'm having? You can pretty much tell whats wrong with the site by looking at it in IE vs. FF (I'm talkign about the orange image over the header). The site is www.fcerealty.com , and the HTML and CSS files can be found in View > Vew Source in your browser.



Internet Explorer (Bad)

Firefox (Good)

may i point your attention to the cell which contains the text...

"Full Service Commercial Brokerage
Building Trust and Confidence one client at a time!"

Remove the padding:30px from this cell,

and apply that style to the paragraph tag that is contained within the cell.

that should sort it..

hope that helps :)

Always keep in mind that validation only checks syntax and grammar but does not check to see if your site lays out correctly. Just like you can use the correct words and placement for an English sentence but "My house are curtains" still doesn't make sense. But, yes, if your page works in Firefox/Opera then most certainly you wrote the markup correctly and it is only IEs bugs that are causing issues.

Yay! Thanks harsh, it works great now!

And thanks to the Doc for the extra tip, too.
