ecofunrentals.com/san-jorge.html  - In Internet Explorer 9, the thumbnail strip at the bottom is extremely wide, although it looks ok on FF and Chrome.

I see when I use Firebug that there is an element style that has:   width: 2772px

But I can't find that actual parameter in the code. Thanks, I appreciate any help!

Add a doctype to your page to start with

<!doctype html>

Cannot see it
With no doctype the browser will go into quirks mode and will do what it likes with the page

That is strange. On the page on my desktop, I see:
<!doctype html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>

But when I view source on the live page, I see:
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>

I even tried to delete the page on the server and then upload, but same problem.

I double checked my source file and where I am saving the html file, they are both the same.
