Go to the following URL and click where it says "0 item(s) - $0.00" in red at the top http://goo.gl/BPbcW

Notice, the white box that pops up says "Your shopping cart is empty!"  It appears correctly in firefox, but not in IE.

How can I make it display in IE like it does in FireFox?  Thanks for your help.

Looks good here (IE8 on XP).
Did you try all the usual... dump the cache, cookies, etc?

Thanks, I hadn't realized it would save that, kind of dumb if you ask me :)  Refreshing should "refresh."

Thanks for the points.  Yeah... and remember choosing refresh with the SHIFT key is your better friend...
(but not absolutely always ;^)

I wonder if that would have worked in this case.  I'll have to try that next time.  Thanks for the tip.

95% to 98% chance it would have.  Your welcome ;^)

BTW, almost all browsers allow the Shift key usage with Refresh for reloading files fresh rather than from cache.

But what can happen is ...
 - a cookie you are setting gets 'stuck', so sometimes I gotta go delete the cookie(s) and then shift-refresh
 - a certain style gets stubbornly stuck for seemingly no reason... I have no idea why this happens. What I may observe is either a particular element in a collection all having the same applied styling "gets stuck" on the last style applied even though everything else updates, OR I think I am seeing an update according to new styling, but really nothing's happening.

I hate it when that happens !!

To avoid being fooled I recommend ALWAYS ...
 - use Shift-reload, and always
 - double+triple-check by multi-browser testing during all development work, and
 - monitor the code output as well as your page.

Happy coding ;^)
