This:
<\/div>

should be:
</div>

but I doubt that will fix the issue. You need to post the code that the browser sees/gets so that we can see what the browser sees.

it was at that but I was using html validation software and it told me to place it like that if its inside the javascript. I changed it got rid of vlidation error, and javascript still works in all browsers but IE.

you should move the call under the function

Replace    
            
                  buildDimmerDiv();
                  function buildDimmerDiv()
                  {
                      document.write('<div id="dimmer" class="dimmer" style="width:'+ window.screen.width + 'px; height:' + window.screen.height +'px; display:none;"><\/div>');
                  }
 
With
 
                  function buildDimmerDiv()
                  {
                      document.write('<div id="dimmer" class="dimmer" style="width:'+ window.screen.width + 'px; height:' + window.screen.height +'px; display:none;"><\/div>');
                  }
                  buildDimmerDiv();

Open in new window
