    Wordpress and IE

    Any recommendations for dealing with Internet Explorer and its delightful ability to mess up the screens when I'm using Wordpress. All the other common browsers seem to play ball

    It’s not Wordpress that is messing up the layout in IE, it’s more likely poorly written HTML and CSS, and this could happen anytime, with or without any CMS.

    The only general recommendation I can give you is: Write clean and semantic HTML and know your stuff. If that advice doesn’t satisfy you you have to be a little more specific in the description of your problem so we can be more specific in providing a solution.

    They are basically synonymous.

    No - Wordpress can produce perfectly valid HTML 4 strict or XHTML 1.0 strict if it is configured correctly and all the posts are written with valid markup. There are even plugins that will correct bad markup in posts.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.
