jumpstart footer columns in IE 8

    I set up a 4 column footer using the theme options, and everything falls where I expect it to on all of the browsers except IE. The first column uses raw content to hold some linked text; the last 3 columns just have a single hyperlinked image sized 125 x 125. These last 3 cols were defined as widget areas containing content blocks.

    IE 8 puts a left offset of 564 on the 2nd column, and then places columns 3 and 4 on what looks like the second and third columns on the second row of a grid, so I end up with something looking like this:
    —————- IE 8 —————– —————- firefox, chrome —————–
    text image1 text image1 image2 image3
    ….. image2 image3

    the website is
    thanks in advance for any help!

    the format lost the spacing in my post – what I meant was:

    —————- IE 8 —————–
    text………………. image1
    ….. image2… image3

    —————- firefox, chrome, safari —————–
    text……image1….. image2…… image3

    I solved this issue by adding the rule: .column.grid_3 {min-height: 0;}
    does this make sense? now, how can I use my own ie.css file in my child theme? I tried adding this to the child’s functions.php:

    function child_jumpstart_css() {
    global $theme_path;
    wp_enqueue_style( ‘themeblvd_ie’, $theme_path . ‘/ie.css’, array( ‘themeblvd_theme’ ) );
    add_action( ‘wp_print_styles’, ‘child_jumpstart_css’ );

    Instead of $theme_path, you’d use get_stylesheet_directory_uri().

    great – thanks!
