mystery text appears!

hello,

my web page looks good enough on every browser now, except that on IE a mystery "s." appears in the bottom left of the page! i can't for the life of me figure out where it's coming from. can anyone see it and identify its cause? you should be able to spot it by viewing the source code, right? if not, please let me know and i'll provide any additional code!

thank you very much.

Yes, you should be able to view it in the source code.

thank you very much.
A link to your site would be helpful as then I could view the source code. Secondly, I found using Find tool helpful in finding stray words and characters in my code.
The most likely explanation as to why IE shows the 's' and the other browsers don't, is that IE is reading the code differently, and therefore, can show the stray 's', where the other browsers are reading the code in such a way, as to jump over the 's'.
Often, in my experience, the stray character is outside of a table tag or division tag.

I hope this helps some!

thank you. i have discovered that for some reason IE was repeating the last 2 characters of the text in my content div. i still don't understand, but by putting a <br /> tag in i solved the problem.

thanks very much!

IE never was much for standards compliance. Thats only partially how they got their nickname 'idiot explorer'.
