    My RSS feed button does not work in all browsers

    I have a RSS feed button that works in FireFox but not in Internet Explorer.

    i have gone back to a previous file for my site until this issue is fixed.

    the test page that shows the page working in FF but not in IE can be seen at


    please can someone take a look and advise how i can tweak the code to allow it to also work in IE

    thanks in advance for your help.

    It would work if your coding wasn't so poor. I'm not going to "clean up" your code for you but adding the necessary markup makes it work. Compare this to what you have now

    I also suggest that you go read up about the differences between JPEGs and PNGs/GIFs.
