Well, i am new here, and I wish I was coming under better circumstances but I have a problem I could really use some help with. I have a website I built using Dreamweaver that I am happy with I think looks okay in chrome firefox and safari, but it won't display in IE.

Actually every page except the .index will display in IE but they are sort of messed up. Anything with a contact table slams up against the left side of the screen and like i said the .index is just blank.

So I used a 2 column fixed template to build this site, and i thought maybe I had screwed something up while I was adding content, but when i went back and defined a new site and loaded just the template IE wouldn't display it.

I SOOO appreciate any help I can get. This was such a fun experience until this problem :(

I am an idiot for not including the URL http://winecountrycarpet.com/
that is the index page that won't load on IE by the way. this one will load http://winecountrycarpet.com/Carpet_Cleaning.html

your code needs a bit of attention , i would think its that.

Thank you so much, :) these forums are the BEST! I had a huge issue were at some point i had deleted the doc type! caught that but now I am going to town on my code using http://validator.w3.org .

I am gonna fix this code as best I can, but I believe the answer is to just really hand code the page. I have huge issues when I use templates (cause im stupid) and I am sure I will have issues hand coding but they won't get so out of hand.

I guess that firefox and chrome were just kind enough to over look the fact that I hadn't actually declared a doc type.
