Beginner help – Text disappearing in IE6 ???

  • # November 25, 2008 at 1:27 am

    Hello, I am pretty new to web design and am just learning CSS…

    I am working on a site that displays perfectly in firefox/ie7 etc.. but when it is opened in ie6 text randomly disappears on two pages…

    This is ultimately frustrating considering i have spent 99% of the time on the site trying to look for a way around this mess.

    The pages that are not displaying properly are:

    any suggestions? don’t be to harsh….the code will probably be alot choppier than what you are used to :mrgreen:

    Had a quick look at http://www.pixeltweaks.com/forge/ourwork.html

    First, change:

    Code:
    #smallcontainer {
    border-bottom: 1px dashed #999999;
    margin-top: 25px;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    }

    to

    Code:
    .smallcontainer {
    border-bottom: 1px dashed #999999;
    margin-top: 25px;
    margin-bottom: 5px;
    }

    Then change all of the

    Code:

    to

    Code:

    Looks like you might also have a couple extra </div>’s. Make sure to run your pages through the validator, that’ll usually help you find problems between browsers:
