Site looks good on Firefox & Chrome, but not on IE

Hi, on this site: pamstevensonjewellery.com

On FF 28.0, it looks good. Same on Chrome 34.0. But on IE 9, the boxes showing the products don't line up correctly. I went to browserstack.com and they show the same thing, down to IE8. They also show it good on Chrome and Firefox back a few versions.

I'm really hoping there's like one or two lines of CSS to alter to fix this. I'm looking forward to your help!

Usually IE8/9 display weird looking CSS. The best thing to do is to stop supporting ie8/9. IE 8 will always look bad no matter how hard you try.

The issue probably has to do with the site not validating.  Please see http://validator.w3.org

I think if you attack this one by one, your problems will go away.

Your comments should look like
<!-- -------------  Header -------------   -->
and not
<!--------------Header--------------->

You have a closing p tag that was not opened.... make sure you close your tags in the same order they are opened.  

Every browser handles errors a bit differently and that is your problem.

Thanks, I'll go through the validator, don't know why I didn't think of that...

Ok, here's where we hit a mystery. On line 43, it does not say <!--------------Header----------- ----> it looks like this:

It should just be 2 dashes followed by a space.

<!--    something  -->

Open in new window


or

<!-- -----------something------------  -->

Open in new window

Notice the one space after then 2nd dash on the left and one space before the --> on the right.
