CSS

media queries in IE

Hey ervybody!

Got problems on my page using mediaqueries. In mozilla, chrome, safari everything work out perfectly, just IE doesn´t work at all. I even tried it in IE 11, IE 10 and IE 9. Just at every 20th time in IE11 it work out(no clue why) well at least on the start-page but all the other times the screen stuck at one size and moreover the css-styling (margins) doesn´t work correctly. I also tried to impliment modernizr in the headsection with:

```<script src="//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.0.min.js"></script> <script src="../../js/modernizr.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

But it does´t change anything at all.  Any suggestions? I already spend hours to find some solution at the internet, but didn´t find anything to solve the problem. I just read, that for IE 9 and above, it should be no problem for the browser to deal with mediaqueries, so I wonder even more about my problems...?!?!

Without seeing all the markup it's difficult to pin point the issue. I would start by making sure your media query syntax is correct as IE can be very picky about syntax and modern browsers can be more forgiving.
