Website Looks Good in FF, Bad In IE 8

is anyone able to help me out with this, I am seeing bad spacing on my navigation menu. Everything looks normal in FF, but IE has big spaces in images etc all over the place. Also I show Object expected as a JS error in IE8.

You can't link to your site saltysupply. Sorry but you just can't do it. Might want to remove it before the mods do.

Ok so do I just post the code?

Click "owner edit" and remove your link first. Or just wait for a mod to come along. They're usually pretty quick.

Posting code is okay but it may not be all that easy to determine the problem from that alone. How are you writing your code? Are you using a site building program?

I usually manually write the code, but its modified from what my web designer did.

Best place to start creating good cross-browser mark-up is to make sure the page validates:

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

Trying to fix a page that doesn't validate can be literally impossible, because each brwoser has its own error correction routines.

<added>Another key step is to have a DTD (DocType Declaration) - you'll need that to use the W3C validator. And many cross-browser troubles can start with a mismatch between the code and the DTD.
