Die, Internet Explorer, Die …

(… this is German for ‘The, Internet Explorer, The':-)

It’s been brought to my attention that the site is not displaying properly in Internet Explorer. The site design passes the W3C validators for HTML5 and CSS3, and displays fine in Firefox, Google Chrome, and others. IE on the other hand dumps the site into Compatibility View, where horrible horribleness takes place with the right border of the main text, and some aspects of the right-hand sidebar.

I’m at a loss to explain this, so any advice is welcomed. A brief check using the IE web developer tools, where I can force IE9 rendering, suggests that IE really is choking on some aspect of the rendering, though I can’t identify exactly what. However, the problem only occurs on some pages: for example, the original blog post renders fine.

I’m leaving the current theme in place (for now) working off the assumption that (a) a fix can be developed reasonably quickly and (b) if anyone more knowledgeable than me wants to be helpful and test the problem, you’ll need the embuggered theme in place to be able to do so.

In the meantime: kids, let this be a lesson. Use a proper web browser. ;-)
