Problems with Internet Explorer 8 or older

Hi guys. I've got some problems with my website in IE 8 or older. All other browsers seem to be working fine.

I'm completely sumped as to why but IE8 doesn't seem to be pulling up the background images specified in the CSS. As you can see this causes big problems for the header and footer.

I'm using the thesis theme in wordpress. I already posted this query on the thesis support forum and they where stumped.

Any ideas?

It looks like you have a few spots in your CSS file where you are missing a space:

.custom #header_area .page {height:100%; width:955px; background:#1C191D url(images/banner.gif)no-repeat;

Try putting a space before "no-repeat".

Wow! That's brilliant. I've always thought that you weren't suppose to leave a space but also thought it didn't make any difference. Admittedly I'm quite new to this.

Thank you so much. That has sorted it nicely.
