Website Displaying Incorrectly in Internet Explorer


   I am using the Quasar template from Rocket Theme in a Joomla website.  If you view the website in both Internet Explorer and Firefox, you will clearly see the problem with the way Internet Explorer is displaying the page.  

Thanks for the help!

Hi ,
You've got the below line being inserted in your page in several places which breaks IE from continuing to load the page since this is a Microsoft Outlook conditional statement

Remove it from your pages

<!--[if gte mso 10]> <mce:style><!   /* Style Definitions */  table.MsoNormalTable 	{mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; 	mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; 	mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; 	mso-style-noshow:yes; 	mso-style-priority:99; 	mso-style-qformat:yes; 	mso-style-parent:""; 	mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; 	mso-para-margin:0in; 	mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; 	mso-pagination:widow-orphan; 	font-size:11.0pt; 	font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif"; 	mso-ascii-font-family:Calibri; 	mso-ascii-theme-font:minor-latin; 	mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman"; 	mso-fareast-theme-font:minor-fareast; 	mso-hansi-font-family:Calibri; 	mso-hansi-theme-font:minor-latin; 	mso-bidi-font-family:"Times New Roman"; 	mso-bidi-theme-font:minor-bidi;} -->

Why would there be MS outlook conditional statements in a template?  Are you familiar with Joomla at all, because I see what you are talking about in the page source, but I am unable to locate it anywhere in the css or html files.
Hi jkockler,
I's probably not the template, html or css.
It's with the CMS in editable areas, seems the content was copied from an email or maybe a word document then pasted into the content areas

Well I figured out why the code was in there.  I had copied and pasted the text from each of the article sections directly out of a word document.  I went back and removed all formatting from the document by pasting into a text document and saving it first.  Then I pasted it into the joomla articles, and now the issue has resolved.  Apparently word fonts / formatting, and joomla do not jive.

Thanks for finding that bad code !!

Wow you are good man.  How did you know it was pasted from a word document just by looking at the code?
:) I've been working with CMS for several years and one of the things I figured that word/outlook would insert MSO and lots of other formatting that would cause similar problems with any CMS based when copied and pasted directly

It's not just Joomla, Actually copying/pasting from word directly causes many problems with most WYSIWYG editors, best practice would be to copy into notepad, etc.. to remove formatting just like you've done.

I guess now you'd also know it's been pasted from word/outlook whenever you see an mso in the mix ;)
