css float help! (i hate internet explorer)


Recommended Posts

At the top of my page I have

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"



so it shouldn't be in quirks mode.


I have my content and navigation put into <div>s. The stylesheet for them looks like this


#con {
   border:solid 4px #70D7D6;background:url(img/layout/gah.gif) repeat-x;
#nav {


It looks perfect in Firefox, but in IE7 the content shows up 140px to the right, but the top is where the bottom of the navigation is. I can't figure out why thats happening...  >:( ???

No, that won't help anything. The problem is that, if the two columns were to be put side-by-side, then you would have something too wide for the width your container element specifies, right? Do either of your boxes use padding? if not, try making the main content just a few pixels narrower. If you do, though, then you'll have to look up the Holly Hack online.
