IE6 & 7 and Float / Display Issues

  • # December 29, 2009 at 5:26 pm

    Hi All,

    Im working on and having some css issues.
    The site displays correctly in Firefox and Safari, but in IE the content wrapper doesnt contain all the picture links and text.

    I have tried toying with the Overflow properties as well as making an empty div under the text.

    It acts like a float issue but I cant figure it out.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hey Paul,

    It’d be a lot easier for us to help if you provided us with the link to the problem!

    Ah, sorry, didn’t see it because it wasn’t linked up, I skim too quickly!

    As always, it’s a good idea to validate: … ne&group=0

    I tried a few things out, but I’m having some trouble following the code that you’ve got there. The overflow:hidden on your main wrapper is hurting things though (for smaller screen resolutions).

    This might help to diagnose.

    The validation is bringing back a lot of small stuff that I dont think could be the culprits, like references to my js hooks and stuff like that.

    Thank you very much for your time!
