Hey there, after a bit of a struggle i've managed to get my website looking right in everything apart from ie6.

I know most people use a different browser but according to my google analytics more people using my site view it through ie6 than ie7! So I'd really like to get it sorted

anyway, the site is bigmenslargeclothes.co.uk and the problem in ie6 is the borders are missing and the width is too big - as you can clearly see if you look at it through ie6

If anyone can help me with this i'd be eternally grateful, I've been struggling with this for a week now

thanks in advance

You have errors in your markup, including several duplicate IDs. An ID must be unique within a page.

I suggest you clean up the code. If that does not fix the problem, feel free to re-post.

Cordially, David

hi there, ok I've done the validation thing and cleaned up all but one of the errors (which I'll sort out later but it's not to do with layout I don't think)

Everything looks good in all browsers apart from in ie6 the category pics which are meant to be three to a line horizontally, for some reason the bottom line has been pushed over and there's only two on it and the last one starts a new line underneath.

I've tried sticking in display:inline's but that didn't seem to work - has anyone any other ideas?

Also in both ie6&7 my bullet points on the left sidebar navigation are right up against the text, I can't figure out how to position them like they appear in FF

If anyone feels like helping me out I'd be really really grateful!
