I am trying to edit my image viewer on my site, but for some reason it works perfectly in chrome, safari and Firefox, but IE is giving me one issue. The images are being stacked vertically (one on to of the other) rather than show up all in one row horizontally. This is making my page longer in IE and just does not look the way I want it to..Any ideas at to what could cause this?

What's your DTD? I'm essentially wondering if this is a quirks mode versus standards mode thing.

Have you run your mark-up through the validators?

has the CSS got an IE conditional in it that perhaps has not been upgraded to cope with IE8 (strict). - or, and I hate to ask, has the CSS got any IE parse hacks in it?

IE7 etc. could be relying on old hasLayout behaviour e.g. to cope with floats and IE8 (regular) may need an interim, or the same solution.

It would likely help if we could see the CSS that is making the images display inline(horizontal), remember to check any IE conditional sheets
