Quirky little thing...

May 2, 2012 10:13 PM

I have CS5.5 installed and as I'm building my website using Dreamweaver and I'm in "Design View" the main content area drops below the sidebar.  However, when I launch it into ANY browser it appears as it should...  Is this a problem on my part? Or just how Dreamweaver handles displaying the page in "Design View"?  Maybe, I have an extra pixel on a border or padding somewhere?!?!

    In my view this could be a minor code problem or possibly something called float drop.  You have several options:


    Google float drop and see if that applies

    Validate your code

    Post your code here or

    Give a link to your page




    The final option is preferred.

    You should not have a style element in your page.  I should go in the head of the page between the <head> </head> tags



      /* refresh The p class display */

      p {

    padding-top: 10px;

        padding-right: 12px;

    padding-left: 12px;

    color: #000;

    font-family: "Trebuchet MS", Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;




    And the opening tag should be <style type="text/css">


    And I wonder if you really need to float the <h1> element in the content?

    You can get a quick and dirty look at your page in IE by using this:



    It has its limitations but it does help.  I just had a look at IE6 in netrenderer and the page appears to hold up.

    Glad you got it sorted.
