What are you having trouble with exactly?

It should be compatible with IE7 , yes. And the easiest way is to create a separate style sheet for IE7 quirks you’re having and call lit in the header like this:

<!--[if IE 7]><link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="ie7.css" /><![endif]-->

It also helps if you validate it with the Strict doctype.

I’ll use HTML5 once W3C takes it out of “Working Draft” state. Thanks though.

Why? It’s perfectly fine to use it right now, in all browsers :)

I don’t think it will be taken out of Working Draft anytime soon…

This thread shouldn’t be turned into an HTML5 argument. Sorry I won’t continue discussing it. Unless you have IE7 help for bigtreat, I suggest moving on.

Strange problem :P

So the images won’t show up? Have you provided alt tags on these images? Do the alt tags appear?

Are the images just ‘img’ tags or background images declared in CSS ?

Have you checked case sensitivity?

Are you working with javascript? Are there any javascript errors or do you use console.log in Firebug?
