Just to make sure we're on the same page, which page has a huge number of validation errors? Are you referring to http://www.imtoday.com/test/1.html ? I just grabbed that from purecssmenu.com to use as an example of the problem I'm having. It has very little HTML really. The W3C markup validator reports the same 9 errors and 38 warnings for both 1.html and 2.html - but 2 works in IE and 1 doesn't.
OK so I guess the next question is, can I get the above page to work properly in IE with the incomplete doctype of:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
This is the doctype that is used on every page of the site, and changing it in any way, even just adding the "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd", completely screws up the layout of every page. I do need to have the entire thing rebuilt but that will take awhile ...
On a related note, where's the best place to just hire someone to do a tiny job like this? Would the marketplace be appropriate? I need to learn this "stuff" myself eventually but at this point I'd rather just pay someone to code this up for me.
