Heya guys,

im really sorry but i dont have the problem site on the net(no hosting)
hope ya willing to help me anyway, im searching for the problem for 2 days now.. glare.gif

The site is perfect in Opera and FF. But when i viewed it with IE my eyes teared.

-Text is way too big
-the menu on the left sucks(some kinda weird blue bar)
-Banner is not well

I tried to sort out with css validator, but i didnt understand

body {
font: 100% Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
background: #41383C;
margin: 0; /* it's good practice to zero the margin and padding of the body element to account for differing browser defaults */
padding: 0;
text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
color: #000000;
.twoColFixLtHdr #container {
width: 900px; /* using 20px less than a full 800px width allows for browser chrome and avoids a horizontal scroll bar */
background: #5E7D7E;
margin: 0 auto; /* the auto margins (in conjunction with a width) center the page */
border: 7px solid #5E7D7E;
text-align: left; /* this overrides the text-align: center on the body element. */
margin-top: 1px;
.twoColFixLtHdr #header {
background-position: center center;
padding: 0 0px 0 0px; /* this padding matches the left alignment of the elements in the divs that appear beneath it. If an image is used in the #header instead of text, you may want to remove the padding. */
border-left: 1px groove #00FFFF;
border-right: 1px groove #00FFFF;
border-bottom: 2px groove #00FFFF;

.twoColFixLtHdr #header h1 {
margin: 0; /* zeroing the margin of the last element in the #header div will avoid margin collapse - an unexplainable space between divs. If the div has a border around it, this is not necessary as that also avoids the margin collapse */
padding: 10px 0; /* using padding instead of margin will allow you to keep the element away from the edges of the div */
.twoColFixLtHdr #navigatie {
float: left; /* since this element is floated, a width must be given */
width: 150px; /* the actual width of this div, in standards-compliant browsers, or standards mode in Internet Explorer will include the padding and border in addition to the width */
font-family: verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;
font-size: 12px;
font-weight: bold;
width: 180px;
border-right: 1px solid #666;
padding: 0;
margin-bottom: 1em;
background-color: #2B547E;
color: #000000;
#navigatie ul {
list-style: none;
margin-top: 0;
margin-bottom: 0;
padding: 0;
#navigatie ul li {
margin: 0;
border-top: 1px groove #736F6E;
#navigatie ul li a {
display: block;
padding: 2px 2px 2px 4px;
border-left: 20px solid #348781;
border-right: 1px solid #69c;
border-bottom: 1px solid #369;
background-color: #3EA99F;
color: #000000;
text-decoration: none;
width: 150px;
html>body #navigatie ul li a {
width: auto;
#navigatie ul li a:hover {
border-left: 10px solid #347235;
border-right: 1px solid #69c;
border-bottom: 1px solid #369;
background-color: #69f;
color: #fff;

.twoColFixLtHdr #mainContent {
margin: 0 0 0 200px; /* the left margin on this div element creates the column down the left side of the page - no matter how much content the sidebar1 div contains, the column space will remain. You can remove this margin if you want the #mainContent div's text to fill the #sidebar1 space when the content in #sidebar1 ends. */
padding: 0 20px; /* remember that padding is the space inside the div box and margin is the space outside the div box */

.twoColFixLtHdr #footer {
padding: 0 10px 0 20px; /* this padding matches the left alignment of the elements in the divs that appear above it. */
background: #348781;
border: 1px groove #00FFFF;
.twoColFixLtHdr #footer p {
margin: 0; /* zeroing the margins of the first element in the footer will avoid the possibility of margin collapse - a space between divs */
padding: 3px 0; /* padding on this element will create space, just as the the margin would have, without the margin collapse issue */
.fltrt { /* this class can be used to float an element right in your page. The floated element must precede the element it should be next to on the page. */
float: right;
margin-left: 8px;
.fltlft { /* this class can be used to float an element left in your page */
float: left;
margin-right: 8px;
.clearfloat { /* this class should be placed on a div or break element and should be the final element before the close of a container that should fully contain a float */
font-size: 1px;
line-height: 0px;
.style2 {
color: #000000;
font-weight: bold;
.style3 {color: #000000}

please help wub.gif
