I don’t understand why this page is showing up unstyled on my work computer (Win2000/IE6). I can’t see any problems with the source code – what am I missing? Something stupid no doubt. Or is it just this machine? Does this page show up unstyled for you now?

    Fine here (IE 5.5, W98).

  2. D says:

    Good to hear. Anyone using IE 6 out there?

  3. D says:

    Well, I know what the problem is, sort of. It’s a DOCTYPE issue – for the longest time I didn’t have one, then I went and added one recently. I used an XHTML transitional doctype, which sends IE6 into ‘strict’ mode (more standards compliant). That’s all well and good, that’s what I wanted. What I can’t figure out is why the stylesheet won’t load in strict mode. I can’t see where my page syntax is any different from pages whose stylesheets are loading fabulously.. What gives?

  4. D says:

    I think I found the solution. Edit http.conf? Damn that shit is wack. I may turn the doctype back to HTML 4 until I get a chance to fix that.

  5. D says:

    Wait a minnit. Why would my homie King’s stylesheet be loading okay? Same doctype.

    generated by MT… not uploaded… curious…

    You know, I suppose I don’t need to think out loud about this shit here.

    Now what’s going on with my comment formatting? That’s supposed to be width:100%, you greasy motherfucking sorry excuse for a border-bottom! “Style” sheet, my ass.

  7. D says:

    Maybe the border’s fixed now?

    That httpd.conf thing wasn’t the trick… it didn’t make sense that that would be the problem. So I went and stripped out all the doctypes – it was in fact not loading the stylesheet with any doctypes listed. Only in IE 6 of course.

    The other thing was that I changed to going ‘link rel’ instead of ‘@import’ or whatever – might have had an effect.

  8. D says:

    OK, this is solved, thanks to a pointer from Leonard – there was an unclosed thingy in my stylesheet. I’ve fixed it, but I haven’t yet gotten around to reinserting a doctype into all the templates. Soon, my pretties.
