Freelance Brief - Fix IE layout issue in TeamMentor Eval Page

This is a brief for a freelancer expert in IE compatibility issues

Problem: Fix the IE 7,8,9 layout problem that happens in the http://docs.teammentor.net/xml/Eval and http://docs.teammentor.net/xml/Customer pages
Deliverable: Patch for https://github.com/TeamMentor/TeamMentor-Documentation repository
Budget: 100 USD
Apply at: https://www.elance.com/job/30027086/proposals


Technical details:


The 3.1 version of TeamMentor supports the creation and delivery of pure XML content. This technique is used to create an marketing page made of an xml file (http://docs.teammentor.net/xml/Eval) and an XSL file (http://docs.teammentor.net/xml/xslt_LandingPage_Variation_2). The http://docs.teammentor.net/xml/Customer xml page uses the same XSL.

The XML+XST transformation into HTML happens on the client (i.e. browser) and looks like this in Chrome/Firefox:


The problem is that it looks like this in IE (note how it is left justified)


The brief is to provide a IE specific patch for this problem (first one to deliver gets the contract)


Bonus Points: Figure out why the '& included inside the HTML Object tags' encoding is lost, when editing the XSL via thisTeamMentor Notepad Interface: http://docs.teammentor.net/notepad/xslt_LandingPage_Variation_2
