Have you tried updating your templatedependents?

Engineering has similar elements on their site at http://engineering.unl.edu/ and it renders fine in IE 7, as well as other template based sites.

Have you read the document on using the templates on other servers? Specifically the portion on mirroring the template files: http://ucommdev.unl.edu/webdev/wiki/ind ... late_Files

It looks like that's your problem.... if updating the templatedependents doesn't fix your problem post back here.

Specifically, the "collegenavigationlist" layer and the "UNL Quick Links" are getting thrown out of alignment. I have some screen shots articulating this problem but am unsure how to attach and upload them to this forum.

Any solutions? Thanks!

Yeah, something is not quite right. I get weird white stripe under firefox (linux) at the top of each page.

I also noticed that your templates are slightly out of date, as the w3c link in the footer is not pointing to the local validator we have now.

I think it is this bit of code:
Code: Select all
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="titlegraphic" -->
<a href="/" ><img src="chem_logo.jpg" alt="Department of Chemistry" /></a>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->

My guess is that the image is messing things up.
You should have something like:
Code: Select all
<!-- InstanceBeginEditable name="titlegraphic" -->
<h1>Department of <span class="highlight-red">Chemistry</span></h1>
<h2>H<sub>2</sub>O is good for you.</h2>
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
