|page randomly chooses to display in IE8|
html and css validate but page sometimes chooses to load, sometimes doesnt
| 3:17 pm on Aug 23, 2010 (gmt 0)|
my site validates for xhtml 1.0 transitional and for css, yet has a weird effect on IE8...
sometimes the page displays fine, sometimes, only the header displays and sometimes half the page displays?
refreshing often provides a different outcome?
I get the following error:

Message: HTML Parsing Error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917)
Can anyone shed any light on this for me?

Some script on your webpage is trying to modify the 'parent container element before the child element is closed'.
The simplest solution in this case would be to wait for the DOM to reach the 'ready' state and then let your scripts to run.

It depends on what the script does, but yes, that very well might resolve the issue you're having.
