If you go to the below two pages (please use login aaabbb/ password:aaabbb)
you will see some layout issues as per the image attached...
This is only happening on the pages with ONE item on the page:

It isn't IE8 either, since i have opened this link in IE8 in my machine and it looks same as FF

I don't have IE7, can you please confirm what browser your customer is using

I would bet $$ that it's a browser rendering problem for IE7.  You could modify the ie7.css file (if there is one) or create one for the ie7 browsers.  

If you don't see it, but your client does either have them upgrade their browsers or get ie7 on your machine or an older test machine.

Part of our jobs as web developers is to make sure that the websites are tested in all environments to ensure they render properly.

If you need assistance with redirecting ie7 browsers to a different .css page, please let me know.

Is it possible that he's rendering a cached version on his side?

Can you see if having him hold down the "SHIFT" + F5 function key will help refresh the site for him?

I've seen that sometimes the sites don't render properly until this has happened.

I will reverify this but when I verified last time it was ok.
Maybe he is using IE6.
This can be related to browser font size, and other browser settings, video card resolution and screen size can cause problem.

Ok, it is definatley IE8, they are using XP so they cannot upgrade their IE8 _ I really need to fix this problem and I just don't know where to start....if I can add a conditional statement for specific styling to fix it I would be happy but I cannot test what needs to be added?

Can anyone help me please?

Hi,
Under IE8 & XP and it is ok so even conditionnal will not solve the problem in that case.
And under XP it's not possible to install IE9.

I think this problem is maybe related to the screen size & video card resolution could you check this with your customer what setting he use in Windows Settings?
Also in IE settings under display menu there is a zoom option, ask him if it's set to 100%.
