- Users must be able to use the form.
I can use the form on all versions of IE. However, the field to enter the details is slightly out of the white box, which may make is confusing or difficult for some users.
So I'll forget the styling for the moment. It looks fine anyway. But I need to make sure the field of the form sits in the white box, as that's a usability issue and seems to affect all version of IE (5,6,7 and 8, haven't been able to check 9). I wouldn't worry about it, but as statistics show (both publicly available ones and my own website stats), around 40% of people are using IE so fixing it will pay off.
Moving forward, I'll see if I can use a conditional comment to drop the fields of the form a little lower so they sit in the white box. That's the clearest solution I can think of. Do you agree?
Haven't posted on any other forums either. I chose this one because it frequently comes up in the SERPs and generally has good info. I'm stoked with all the help you've already given me. And I've definitely realised that adding more code is only a band-aid solution. The simpler I can make it, the better.
