HTML wierd in IE

I built a new website that looks fine when I preview all the browsers, but have a friend who is using IE and it adds a blank page before all of the copy. So she has to scroll down to see my web page, but all of the navigation is still at the side. Doesn't make any sense to me and I've checked the code and can't see any errors. Has anybody else seen anything like this?

Have you tried running the page through an html verifier?

What development ap are you using to create the pages? Are you viewing results in browsers before posting?

Haven't used an html verifier before, where can I get one?

I'm developing in Expression Web and I have previewed it in browsers from there, but can't duplicate this problem.

Sigh.

You go to Google and typing in "html verifier".

It's more common for this to be called a "validator". The W3C is the standards body and they have a free online validator that is very easy to use:

W3C Validator - HTML [validator.w3.org]
W3C Validator - CSS [jigsaw.w3.org]

Once validated, I will bet you have something "clearing" the main content or the funky way IE manages the box model causes it to not fit in your container in IE. Zeroing out/reducing margins/paddings wil probably fix it, but as suggested, validate it first.

Sensible browsers:


container---------------
nav-- content ----------
----- ------------------

Probable case in IE:


container---------------
nav--
-----
content ----------
------------------

I'm familiar with the html validator. I appreciate all of your help very much.
