i've been having this strange problem, it only happens in internet explorer ( version 8 on xp sp3 ) - and only when using through xampp v1.7.4 and accessing it through 127.0.0.1
so i finished coding up a page, all working fine in chrome, checked in safari, firefox, opera - all good. checked in internet explorer - its all gone a bit crazy, its positioning the logo and header text way off the right of the screen, which is strange because it was working fine earlier, so i figure i must have messed something up along the way.
so after hours of checking through and not getting anywhere, i checked the file not through xampp, but as a c:\directory\file.html - and it worked! then i checked the file using localhost/ - and it worked! its only when accessing the file through 127.0.0.1 that is messes up!
see the pics, exactly the same file - just accessed in different ways. all ways work fine in all browsers, except ie when accessed through 127.0.0.1
you can see the logo and title moves position!
accessed through c:\directory\file.html
accessed through localhost/directory/file
accessed through 127.0.0.1/directory/file
as you can see, when accessed through 127.0.0.1 it displays the header all out of place. it does the same with the footer - which it starts displaying halfway across the screen. but only when accessed through 127.0.0.1!
any ideas of why this would be? its not really a huge problem, because i can just use localhost to access and test, but i spent HOURS trying to work out what i'd done wrong!!
