    I will keep saying it lol I might make a macro actually…

    You need to use "position" to position block elements and not margin/padding.

    for example, within positioning :


    should be:

    position:absolute/relative; /*absolute is a better option */

    IE decides its going to make up its own rules in regaurds to margin and padding, that is why people see such a shift in their designs when position is not used

    Hi guys, thanks for the replies.

    Reducing the margins doesn’t seem to help the problem in IE. Is it because I have more than one flash element on the page? Without these elements, all the DIVs align perfectly, but as soon as a second SWF is embedded (either with adobe or SWFObject) the divs move out of position :(

    Its very frustrating! Any further thoughts or ideas guys?

    Would Would something like this not solve the problem if put at the start of the stylesheet?

    * { margin:0; padding:0; }

    Are you using a Reset.css?

    Once I started using Eric Meyer’s Reset Reloaded, it drastically cut down on browser inconsistencies.
