The Problem: If you use Disqus to allow comments in your website, you’ll find there is a layout bug if someone uses Microsoft IE9 to look at your website. Disqus has a layout problem in IE9. Text will go off the screen to the right side.

The Solution: This is easy to fix. Edit the DocType statement at the top of the HTML.

At the top of your HTML code, there is a line:

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

Delete that. Insert the following line:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd”>

Try that on one page and look at the results in IE9. You can use a global search/replace to fix all pages.
