    Hi. I have a number of floated elements inside a simple div. The page displays perfectly in FF & Safari but does very strange things in IE6 & 7.

    The sample code is: … -test.html

    My basic question is how to get the IEs to display like Firefox, but I would also love to know why. Does anyone have a link to something like explains browser rendering differences in RTL layouts?

    Thanks in advance!


    The only thing I can think of is that it doesn’t like it being set on the body. Try setting it on the wrapper div.


    Okay, I moved everything on the body tag to a wrapper tag- which fixed the offscreen problem in IE. Now it’s just the floats.


    Maybe it has something to do with the margin-left in your css. In IE6 margins are doubled for some reason, try _margin-left: and half the amount of pixels, so it would be _margin-left: 10px in your case. That will just target IE so keep the original css line for the other browsers. Dunno if that’s the problem but sure give it a try!
