It seems Internet Explorer 10 has problems with the html tags "<base>

For instance , when i open my website in IE10 it doesn't know where to find the images or stylesheets

<base href="">

When i open the same page in any other webbrowser , even IE9 , it shows all correct

Short : make the <base> tag work again !!

I'm having the same problem and there is nothing wrong with the html code.

Thank you for your feedback. This issue is currently caused by issues external to Internet Explorer.

Please verify your markup including doctype at a site such as Because your doctype is not correct, the site is being sent to Internet Explorer's Quirks mode which is affecting the rendering. Also there are multiple markup corrections that need to be made. The base tag should allow your stylesheets to render properly once these corrections are made.

If your markup is fixed and validated and you still believe the problem is due to Internet Explorer, please file a new feedback with additional information.

Best regards,

The Internet Explorer Team
