Love the Whitehouse theme, but I have a problem with these 2 browsers. Our site looks great in Firefox, but in IE the left side Features panels displays the fonts too big. I don??™t know how to fix. The site is live, any suggestions appreciated. www.firstplan.com

the images are too big for the space ..sorry..but you can see the font size is huge in the IE page rendering. Any tips appreciated to get it to display as with firefox. I'm helping Mike with this site. .and you can email me at: mark500@verizon.net if you'd like to reply direct. Thanks! Mark

FYI: The wreath looking graphic and text are all an image.. so that text doesn't vary , in case that was a question. But the text on the page is certainly affected ( Welcome to First Plan let us help you innovate.. and the sub headings below: ( SalesLogix, Sage CRM and Connect, and text below ) . Tnx, M

Throwing darts here.. so I'll ask -- is this a font substitution problem? where the theme is specifying a font.. and if IE doesn't have it.. substitutes a big font. Where is the font called for in this theme and can I change it to something that will render correctly? tnx. M

No, the problem is most likely a markup issue which Firefox auto corrects (its good at this) and IE doesn't. In your case it looks like you've nested a `

` tag inside a `

` header tag, which is a no no :)

this exact thing happened to me too once -- i was surprised that firefox looked great but IE looney. turns out i had forgotten to close an html tag within the bottom feature box #2, it affected the rest of the feature boxes as well as the footer, but only in IE. Another reason to appreciate our trusty mozillafox...

Hey! you got it! a typo in the first <h3> closing tag.. ended up NOT closing the tag,... and everything after it was affected. Thank you! very much! Mark
