HTML Add to Cart Buttons Not Showing Up in Internet Explorer Only

    I have tried various browsers including Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. My add to cart buttons show up in every one of those browsers but when it comes to Internet Explorer they are MIA. Is this an IE bug? How can I fix this? I used Mal's button maker on here and used the HTML form button option. On the style tab I selected image with an image source hosted from my website. It obviously works bc the buttons show up in other browsers. What did I do wrong??? HELP!!! Thanks in advance!

    ETA this is the code Mal's button maker generated for me:

    <form action=""; method="post">
    <input type="hidden" name="userid" value="not posting my id for my protection">
    <input type="hidden" name="product" value="Hair Trigger Growth Elixir: Featherweight Formula-8 oz">
    <input type="hidden" name="price" value="20.99">
    <input type="hidden" name="units" value="8">
    <input type="image" src=""; height="ButtonMaker0.Panel4.viewstack2.Form37.FormItem58.HBox59.imgHeight" width="ButtonMaker0.Panel4.viewstack2.Form37.FormItem58.HBox59.imgWidth" Alt="Add to Cart">

    I hope I'm not putting my site at risk by listing my code here...yikes!!! (I changed my Username Id # in the code up top so it doesn't reveal anything for security purposes. It has the real variables on my page.)

    Perhaps something in the height and width expressions?

    Changing to

    <input type="image" src="";; height="100" width="600" Alt="Add to Cart">

    shows something. Or changing to a simple .jpg and keeping the height and width works.

    On the other hand, entering the src address in Firefox or IE directly isn't successful. I think it would be with a normal .jpg

    Have you googled looking for an IE problem?

    Alan I have to tell have been quite a lifesaver for me the past few days. I really do feel like I owe you BIGGGGGG!!!!!! I took your suggestion and changed my picture to a .jpg but that in and of itself did not wk when inputting it into the button maker. Then I tried your code you suggested and it worked but it showed up huge, distorted, and cut then I just ended up playing with the variables a bit until it was the approx width and height I approved of....this is what I used.... <input type="image" src="";;; height="35" width="155" Alt="Add to Cart">....

    IT WORKS IN ALL 4 BROWSERS!!!! Thank you SOOOOO much! I would have never known about that IE glitch if I wouldn't have asked a friend of mine to check out my site progress and said there were no buttons as she was in IE....LESSON LEARNED....CHECK ALL BROWSERS FOR COMPATIBILITY BEFORE GOING LIVE!!!

    Thanks again Alan!

    Thanks GT for your response as well.

    Blessings to all!!!!
