    Problems with IE8

    Hobie 17

      I have a div id of Masthead. there is a 10 px border on the top. Plus a "p" tag at the beginning of the text. It works fine in Firefox but IE will not read the border or the "P" tag.






      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

              What do you want to do exactly? or what is the issue?


              Are you using margining as a spacer between divs?


              did you try padding the content?


              Just not sure of the issue. IE 8 is adding a bit more space then FF and safari is that the issue?
