jQuery Galleria Photogallery problem in quirks mode

Hi all,

I am busy trying to use jquery.galleria.js as an image viewer but noticed that if I use IE6 or quirks mode that the images don't display...The thumbnails display though.Using IE8's developer tools i wasn't able to find anything odd with regards to widths,z-indexes etc...I have made sure that my page validates against html 4.01 transitional but I have no clue where this may be going wrong.Does anyone know how I can solve this?You can see the problem if you go to Dr Fish Spa Morningside.co.zaand activate quirks mode in the developer tools...

Have you tried to contact the creator of the plug-in?

Even Microsoft is trying to kill IE6. Is it really necessary to support such an antiquated and buggy browser?

I see that the code is recent but the forum posts are from 2008.Tried a different older version of Galleria but couldn't get that one working properly.Going to give Lightbox a try or just follow a tutorial now..

Are you serious that MS is trying to kill IE 6? That's a good thing at least

Yes.

I think a lot of devos think that they need to support IE6, when it's really needless. For example, when I showed up at my current job, IE6 was on the list of planned supported browsers. a 30-second chat changed that.

There are situations where IE6 may still require support, but they're rapidly waning.
