Question

how to make the nav bar on my website to work like in IE 8

I have a website running, at first it seems it is working right. but when I test it to browsers I saw a difference, my web Navigation bar is stretching from left to right with Chrome & Mozilla, not like in IE 8 that it just stays at the middle

my problem right now is I think it does look like better in IE 8 than the two other browsers.

can anyone help me about this. my website is running by CMS wordpress

Test the HTML code

Head over to the W3C Markup Validation site and test the HTML code.

IE has always been different in the way it handles HTML Markup code, and although IE8 and IE9 are getting closer to standard, there are still differences. That might be why you see the changes from one browser to another.

I did a quick test of your site myself and saw 58 errors and 7 warnings. You can check for yourself how critical or not, as the case may be, those errors are.

Usual tools to find out are ...

- Firebug in Firefox (add-on)
- the IE8 Developer tools (shift F12)

Not only they show you the exact effect of your (css) styling, they let you change it on the fly to see the effect of any change you make.
