Weak Link

On the web front, one of my weakest points is web design. I know enough to troubleshoot most stuff. I can create web pages, hack existing templates, I can understand CSS to a certain level, etc. --- but I know I'm no web designer.

But, I definitely appreciate good design. And, slowly, I'm trying to teach myself how to become a better web designer. (But then, I'm always wanting to become better at everything... so who knows if it's ever going to happen? ;-))

Anyway, I was getting a bit annoyed with my previous blog template/theme due to some viewing issues - both on IE and Firefox. I like the overall look of the design, but some of the existing codes do funny things to my font sizes. The worst thing is that it makes things really tiny --- to the point that text becomes readable only if you use a magnifying glass. And, who would want to do that?

I tried and tried to edit the CSS and the templates. To no avail.

So, in the end, I decided to get myself a new blog skin. This is it. I like it. And, it seems to work well on Firefox. But, it keeps getting buggered when viewed on IE. I keep getting the error message: "Done, but with errors on page," when I load the pages. And, some pages don't show up completely. I've been trying to troubleshoot but I'm stumped.

That's why I'm posting this now as a cry for help. Are there any web design geniuses out there who can tell me how to fix this IE-viewing issue? Pretty please?
