Re: IE Display Problem
Sam, no problem. Since CSS3 is still a draft, I just use the CSS2 validator here:
(CSS 2.1 is selected by default on that page)
I also just use the CSS validator that is built into the Firefox Web Developer extension by Chris Pederick. I highly recommend it.
As for the comments being less standards based, they’re just ignored as comments by smart browsers. While they’re not based on any standard (like much of IE itself, it seems) they were created by Microsoft to address problems like this.
I just do what works to make things work in IE and posted the info in case someone else was having a similar problem. YMMV
