Initial Email Subject: Problem with menu running IE9
Support Case Month: October 2012


When running my webpage on IE9 the menu items look strange, i.e. when the menu item consist of more words my menu is showing each word as a new line and not, just as I want it, a single line.

When running Firefox or Chrome the menu items show up in the right way.

Thank you for your help on this matter.

Best regards

Dear Finn,

After having another look at your menu & page I realized that the problem is in the page.

It seems that your page does not have a proper DOCTYPE and this causes IE to go into the so called “quirks mode” which is essentially IE5.5 Compatibility Mode.

Please try replacing this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">


With the correct HTML4 Transitional DOCTYPE:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Frameset//EN" "">

<html xmlns="">

Or with the HTML5 DOCTYPE which is much simpler:

<!DOCTYPE html>
