Why does ie 7 not show the text on some websites?

Post by dGdlcmJlck » Thu, 16 Nov 2006 00:43:02


I have 6 PC's that I use on a regular bases. 2 are still running ie 6 and the
other 4 are running ie7. I have a few websites where I can not view the text
on the page just the boarders on the PC's running ie7. When I pull the sites
up on the PCs running ie6 everything is there. I've tried to uninstall ie7
and re-install ie6 and it says the software running is a newer version and
the install stops. This is after I've uninstalled ie7 and rebooted. Any
ideas?

Properly uninstalling Windows Internet Explorer 7 returns you to IE6.

Can you give an example URL?

Yes, in theory it should return me to IE6, but it does not. I was able to do
a system restore on 1 of my systems to get me back to IE6, but I still have
major issues while trying to send and receive e-mail in outlook. Here is a
website that no longer works with IE7
http://www.yqcomputer.com/
header and right boarder. After the picture under the "How to Apply" Nothing
is there, however in IE6 I can see all the text and additional links.

I confirm your observation.

Perhaps one of the 27 XHTML errors is the problem. Or perhaps (more
likely, I think) a CSS error, but I can't check this because the CSS
validator won't go till some of the XHTML errors are fixed.

Complain to the webmaster.

IE7 is much less tolerant of code errors than was IE6. That site needs to
clean up their code.
