I can't seem to get my website to work properly on IE8 yet it works fine on Firefox. I can't seem to suss out where I've gone wrong as some other sites that I've designed using the same techniques work fine in both. If anyone could have a look see for me and shed some light on the problem it would be appreciated. The links in my sig.

If your site works in IE7, you might be suffering from the new rendering thingamajig Microsoft changed for IE8.

You can try adding this meta tag:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE7"/>

in the head of your page(s) to force Internet Explorer 8 to render the content as Internet Explorer 7 would.
If in IE7 the layout is still rendered differently, the usual suspects are usually the margin and padding CSS values when DIV layers are nested, as IE deals with inheritance differently than other browsers.

For those not familiar with the terminology, release candidates, in Microsoft parlance, are versions of software that are still not ready for the general public to use, since they may not have all the major bugs ironed out. They are generally more or less complete (or at least, they are more complete than the "beta" releases, which are work-in-progress software), so they are made available so that others can test it. In the case of IE 8 RC 1, Microsoft has said that all the features intended for IE8 have been implemented, and the real release version of IE 8 should behave the same way. This allows web developers to try IE 8 on their websites and adjust them so that they work properly when IE8 is finally released.
