I searched and searched for a Photo Gallery that was easy to set-up and finally found one that I was actually able to get set-up in my site and fit into the theme of my website. After getting everything working right I checked it live in several browsers, including Google Chrome 21.0.1180.60, IE 8 and Firefox 14.0.1. In both Chrome and Firefox the gallery appears correctly and functions properly. However in IE 8 it does not. After some research I discovered that the problem is the <nav> tag...it is not supported in IE 8.

This is the page in question

CODE

<form>
    <div id="content1">
        <input id="slide-01" type="radio" name="nav" />
        <fieldset id="slide-content-01">
        <input id="legend-01" type="checkbox" />
        <label for="legend-01"><em>Jacqui - Council Member</em>
        Biography of Member
        </label> </fieldset>

        <input id="slide-02" type="radio" name="nav" />
        <fieldset id="slide-content-02">
        <input id="legend-02" type="checkbox" />
        <label for="legend-03"><em>Jacqui - Council Member</em>
        Biography of Member
        </label> </fieldset>

        <input id="slide-03" type="radio" name="nav" />
        <fieldset id="slide-content-03">
        <input id="legend-03" type="checkbox" />
        <label for="legend-03"><em>Jacqui - Council Member</em>
        Biography of Member
        </label> </fieldset>

        <input id="slide-04" type="radio" name="nav" />
        <fieldset id="slide-content-04">
        <input id="legend-04" type="checkbox" />
        <label for="legend-04"><em>Jacqui - Council Member</em>
        Biography of Member
        </label> </fieldset>

        <input id="slide-05" type="radio" name="nav" />
        <fieldset id="slide-content-05">
        <input id="legend-05" type="checkbox" />
        <label for="legend-05"><em>Jacqui - Council Member</em>
        Biography of Member
        </label> </fieldset>
    </div>
    <nav>
        <label id="label-01" for="slide-01"></label>
        <label id="label-02" for="slide-02"></label>
        <label id="label-03" for="slide-03"></label>
        <label id="label-04" for="slide-04"></label>
        <label id="label-05" for="slide-05"></label>
    </nav>
</form>


Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

I don't see any <nav> element in your page. It's an HTML5 element, but your page is XHTML 1.0 Transitional. I do see a DIV with an id="nav" that any browser will understand.

In fact, I don't understand why there are so many form elements. Seems a weird way to code a photo gallery.

You must have looked at it after I changed it. Where there is <div id="nav"> it used to be <nav>. The only way I could then get it to work correctly after that was to wrap both sections of the photo gallery with <form></form>.

If you could point me to a better coded photo gallery that is easy to integrate, I would be happy to change it but this was the only one I could find that I could work with.

That's why I posted the two links to relevant sites by Stu Nicholls.
