A Browser Specific Problems text does not appear in IE 7

P: n/a
Please use FireFox to check out this page:

http://www.cyberbitten.com/

Do you see the text near the top that reads "Be a part of the movement!" ?

Okay, now go look at the same page in IE 7 (possibly also IE 6, I don't
know).

The block of text is gone, yes? I can't figure out why.

I've validated this page, save for the Flash. I have asked our Flash
programmer to get back to us with some valid HTML for the Flash. Aside
from the HTML for the Flash video player, the page is valid. So why
won't the intro text appear? It appears fine in FireFox. What am I missing?

Remove:

Putting something before the doctype may through IE into quirks mode,
which would also be the reason it does not center in IE.

No it wasn't. Maybe multi-posted, but not cross-posted.

Sorry, I don't have IE, but as BootNic says, fix your DOCTYPE area.

You also should check this:
<http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cyberbitten.c om%2F>
This page is not Valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional!
Result: Failed validation, 12 Errors

and
<http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/validator?profile=css21&warning=0&uri=http%3A%2F%2 Fwww.cyberbitten.com%2F>
Sorry! We found the following errors (8)

and

My apologies. I thought I made clear in my original post that the page
was valid save to the HTML relating to the Flash video player. I have
asked our Flash programmer to get back to us with some HTML that will be
valid on this page.

That fixed the problem. Thanks very much.

That worked, so I'm wondering how I might have found this out on my own.
Is there a validator somewhere that would flag these kinds of issues as
potential problems?
