    IE6, 7 (makin' me crazy)

      After I finished updating this site my client called and said he had to scroll accross page to view the content. He was using IE7. I checked in in IE6 and part of it gets kicked below a div that it should be next to, right.

       

      Any ideas what the heck is going on? When I first launched the site all looked well in IE6 and 7. I did change a bit of css in olp_1.css but not much?

       

      Thanks for any help.

          Amend your #mainContent css styles to EXACTLY as below:

           

          .twoColFixLtHdr #mainContent {
              margin-top: 0;
              margin-right: 0;
              margin-bottom: 0;
              padding-top: 0;
              padding-bottom: 0;
              color: #666;
              background-color: ECECEC;
              width: 490px;
              float: left;
              padding-right: 20px;
              padding-left: 15px
          }

            Thanks for the help.

             

            width: 490px;


            didn't work in IE6 but width: 450px; did.

             

            Do you know why setting the column the whole width of the container and a large left padding was used as a dreamweaver template?

             

            Thanks for your reply, it was a great help

              Hi Kevin

               

              Don't know.

               

              I'm not a great fan of the templates that ship with Dreamweaver. I personally don't think they are set up to be very easy to understand for those that may need to use them. Lots of confusing css and construction methods which are not as stable as they could be.
