Wordpress-related html coding issue - garbled display in IE7

Discussion in 'HTML' started by John D. Rockafella, Dec 28, 2009.

  1. I have a side gig updating the information on a web site for a comedy club.

    All I do is update the site. I didn't create it nor do I manipulate any
    of the html or css code. I just insert updated info inside the tags.

    The problem is that the Calendar page displays fine in Mozilla Firefox
    and IE8, but the display is garbled if you access the site in IE7. I
    didn't become aware of it until two weeks ago, when someone told the
    club owner. The guy who designed the side is incommunicado.

    The site was created with Wordpress.

    Is there a Wordpress plugin that could resolve this issue? Or is there
    something off about the site code? I'd appreciate it if someone could
    take a look at the page source. Here's the site URL:

    www.comedycaravan.com

    Thanks in advance.

    The W3C validator (validator.w3.org) shows 111 errors and 3 warnings on the
    base page, 93 errors and 2 warnings on the calendar page.

    I think I'd start with those.

    In addition to cleaning up the markup, you might as well upgrade
    WordPress. Currently the site is running v. 2.8.4 and the latest version
    is 2.9.

    Is that known to clear up display issues with older versions of IE?
