float, <li> bullets and IE7

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Helpful person, May 18, 2009.

  1. I am rewriting my web site and have hit a cross browser compatability
    problem. The site is at:

    www.newftpwebsite.richardfisher.com/optical_engineering.shtml

    with access using username richard and password fisher

    I have unordered lists which show as expected in non IE7 browsers
    displaying the bullets. In IE7 no bullets are displayed. If I
    remove the floats the bullets appear for IE7. (The CSS for the page
    in question is at the end of the linked file.)

    I searching the internet and found a possible a fix (which I haven't
    yet tried) which suggested using images for the bullets. There must
    be a better way.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Is the site part of someone's eye test?!!!!!

    I'm in a hurry at the minute, but if IE's misbehaving, why not send it some
    conditional CSS?

    Thank you very much. That fixed my problem. This forum is wonderful
    for beginners like me.
