    its due to unclosed or improperly nested tags... edit them out in the template.... try the W3C Validator for HTML to assist u :)

    Since its at blogspot, you can't edit the template files. Change the template and see. This happens because IE doesn't adhere to W3C standrads :x It has its own set of rules. It plays test cricket with gully cricket rules :lol:

    Blogspot templates are editable. And the best thing to do is to check for html and css validation.

    http://validator.w3.org/

    http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/

    And correct the errors and shown there. But mind you, even this wont ensure your site working perfectly with IE, as IE hasn't implemented w3c standards completely.

    two solutions

    1. reduce the size of image
    2. increase column width

    One suggestion

    (PLEASE) change the color combination

    If you have a little knowledge in html/css it's very easy. Any do the following

    1. Goto your dashboard, select your blog and click on template.

    2. look for a section like this
    3. try incresing the width ffor #sidebar slightly, say by 20px

    4. preview your changes, save it once satisfied.

    NB: It's better you first copy all the code as a backup if anything goes wrong.

    thanks man....... u rock....

    i increased the left hand column width and reduced the right hand column width...... and it is working fine.....


    @desertwind- sorry but i think that the color scheme matches with its content..... u can't have a dull or depressing color scheme for a lively relaxing topic :)

    i thought it was you who rock! ;)

    Your color scheme looks too unprofessional. It reminds me some of the old geocities pages. You can use bright colors, but that too in a professional manner.
