    Webpage resolves in Firefox, Chrome but not IE8

    Can someone take a look at www.hiredimensions.net and let me know why this site is not displaying in IE8? At least not on my system. If it works for you in IE I will leave it alone. I have already validated the CSS markup and have zero errors. I know there are many threads regarding IE issues but have not found any solutions that address this issue. Thanks

    IE8 does not know HTML5. <section> and like mark up won't work.

    Have been told there is a jquery that will force it to work (don't know the name or if its true). Or you could re-write in HTML 4.01 Transitional.

    I see you have some kind of html5 .js file. This file probably is or is like html5shiv in which gives html5 support to <=IE8 with JavaScript createElement.
    Are you sure this file is in the right directory?



    As of now, html5 elements aren't being displayed in <=IE8 which means you don't have an html5 supporter.

    I am going to suggest changing the src="" to:

    Code:
    <!--[if lt IE 9]>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/html5.js"></script>
    <![endif]-->
    If that doesn't help, tell us which file it is located in and posting the code of the file here.
