    http://www.thestauchs.com (navbar) is not working in IE7 RC1

    It works in IE7 Beta 2, IE6, Firefox, Opera, and Safari

    Any ideas?

    Hi lrumley,


    style="display:block;

    on your img tags that don't display may be the problem. I don't know if
    display:block is supported by IE. Try removing these style attributes.

    Also some of your src properties for you images don't work

    http://www.thestauchs.com/uploaded_images/Honeymoon 014-742259.jpg

    cause of the embeded spaces in the file names.

    Tip: KISS - avoid complicated styling. There is a real SF at the moment
    about browser styling standards support. What you see may not be what the
    user sees in their browser.
    Develop first without any styling. Then add your stylesheets and test, test,
    test on the browser platforms that your target audience is using (80% IE,
    14% FF... forget the rest).

    Regards.

    Rob,

    Thanks for taking the time to dig into the site, but I think the issue you
    are referring to is with the Blogger content being published to the home page
    (I know there are messed up image sources there).

    The navigation bar is the real issue though, and none of the links can be
    clicked or even rolled over in IE7.

    I appreciate the KISS tip; though I do test with style sheets turned off
    first. I always test in a standards-compliant browser (Firefox) first, then
    fix the one that the masses use (IE). Any other ideas? Thanks,

    The nav bar on http://www.thestauchs.com is still not working on IE7 now that
    it is released. I would really like to know how to design these CSS-driven,
    list-based navigation elements without breaking IE.
