Are there any good HTML coders here? I need some help with a peculiar problem...

Hey guys, a Client of mine came accross a weird ass problem. their website is this:

after changing !DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" to

everything is suddenly shifted out of place as below:

If anyone knows a quick solution I would really really appreciate the help, otherwise, I'll have to resort to using flash for the green banner, as good old IE wont support CSS hovering on anything that isnt an anchor tag, without a strict.dtd

He who says it cannot be done is interrupting the man doing it.

Well, comparing the fwo files:

The code differences are in two blocks. First, the section with the #link styles at about line 126.
The second changed block is on line 285 onwards where you see "Copy from here" down to "Stop up to here". This is for the hover-links in the new one, I think.

Could it be that the new Link styles are interfering with the old formatting?

Oh, and download is one word :)

thanks for the reply Nik, I've just fixed a tab with my original post which was eliminating the doctype information.

the problem was as soon as the !DOCTYPE section was updated to include ""

I'm guessing its suddenly activated some sort of default padding or margin value which wasnt there before.

Ah. I noticed that bit had changed, but hadn't thought it was the problem. Glad you got it sorted!

nah, the problem is still persistant. It's very strange, without "", it all fits together tightly, but at soon at I put that in everything shifts apart slightly. does that particular .dtd file do something to the padding values or margins maybe?

Not sure, but the page doesn't validate to the HTML doctype used.

Stick the page address in this and see the things that aren't "strict".
