Hi, I've been hired by someone to redo his website.

Problem is, he coded this thing with a 8 year old program called Netscape something or other. This program made the website with HTML 4.0 (reallyyyy old) I have updated to XHTML 1.0. But, with the new doctype, HV Menu is ignoring the right and bottom margins in IE8 ONLY. It works fine in FireFox, Opera, and Safari.
I'm not much of a javascript guy, so I don't really know what is going on. I did manage to pinpoint it to the doctype though.

He is not willing to change his menu in anyway. Not even if it can look the same but with a different menu. I have no idea why.

Dumb program even set his ENTIRE website up with nested tables. I'm dreaming of <td> and <tr> ugh. I hate how people refuse to upgrade to better, and more accepted things.

IE does not support XHTML and you are probably not using it in the correct way (if you did, the page would not even show in IE). What you should do is change back to HTML, which is not old at all and is supported by all browsers.

To learn more about this, you can have a look at this article: http://www.webdevout.net/articles/beware-of-xhtml (http://www.webdevout.net/articles/beware-of-xhtml)

Good luck!
