How can I make a website I designed compatible with Internet Explorer?

Andy August 10, 2010

I have designed a website with HTML/CSS. I sent the design to my customer and he is using Internet Explorer 7 (I am using Firefox). He says that he can not see the pictures. There is no problem with my browser. What am I supposed to do? Thanks in advance.

    Now you can tell him to tell everyone to stop using Internet Explorer as because it is such as hassle for web developer as nothing works on IE (as you have found).

    Tell him to get a real browser! Although this doesn't fix the problem you are having.

    How have you wrote your code for the images? Does the site work on IE on your computer?

    Have you tried viewing your design in IE on your computer? He may have turned off the viewing of photos on his system.

    The star html hack worked in the opposite way to the child selector, in that any CSS commands that use this hack are only seen by Internet Explorer. So, to send commands only to Internet Explorer (including IE on the Mac), you can use:

    * html #foo {width: 400px;}

    The * essentially means a wildcard (i.e. it refers to any and every element). The above rule will apply to any element assigned id="foo" that's nested within the tag (which of course it will be), which is itself nested inside any other HTML element.

    Huh? Surely the tag can't be nested inside another tag!? Well, no of course not... but Internet Explorer 6 and before disagree and will actually obey the above command. Internet Explorer 7 will however (correctly) ignore the above command, along with all other non-IE browsers.
