3 Pixel Text Jog and wrapping issues

  • # March 29, 2009 at 12:21 pm

    Hi! I posted about the Div wrapping issues yesterday. I managed to fix the issue on all pages except for 3 of them. I can’t figure out why these 3 pages everything shifts to the left of the page leaving a huge gap down the right side. I think I have these pages set up the same way as the others, however, these 3 pages contain forms (not sure if this is related to the issue). The pages I’m referencing are "Contact", "Order a Transcript" and "Schedule a Court Reporter".

    Also, I am getting the 3 pixel text jog issue on most of the pages. I have the .mybuggyelement rule in there with the zoom set to 1, but I could be using it incorrectly. Any help is very much appreciated. Here is the test link:

    Here is my css

    Give .twoColFixLtHdr #mainContentwrap a width of 774px

    Thank you! That fixed the shifting problem on the 3 effected pages. I’m still getting the 3 Pixel Text Jog error when I run the validator. Do you know how I can fix it?

    I’d never heard of it until now.

    Just found this:http://www.communitymx.com/content/article.cfm?page=4&cid=F41AE

    Thanks for the link, but I still can’t figure it out. If anyone can point out to me where my problem is, I would greatly appreciate it!

    Here is my link and css

    padding: 0;
    text-align: center; /* this centers the container in IE 5* browsers. The text is then set to the left aligned default in the #container selector */
