Home Forums CSS Horizontal Scrolling issue with IE-8 Re: Horizontal Scrolling issue with IE-8


Hard to tell without seeing an actual live site.

But if a container has a 100% width (or if a number of containers have a combined width of 100%), then it will take up the full width of the page. However, when you add borders (like you’ve done in your code above), it will take up MORE horizontal space, and that may be the cause of the scrollbar.
