    Hey! can anyone help me with this?

    I have a div positioned absolute within a div positioned relative, works fine in all browsers except IE (7 not tried 6 or 8 yet).

    here you can see how it looks in Firefox etc.. (Scroll to the right..!)

    here you can see how IE messes it up… (scroll right again)

    ive tried allsorts, different positioning, margins, padding, widths / heights of div and or parent div, but nothing seems to be happening.

    Heres the code.

    Hi, i just uploaded it here so you can have a look


    # February 1, 2010 at 7:23 am

    Thanks for taking the time to look through it, appreciated!

    my feelings were it was something to do with the positioning of mask, im gonna keep digging!


    # February 1, 2010 at 2:02 pm

    hey virtual,
    ill try the -30, i tried -170 and some others before, but ill give that a go.
    yeah im gonna do the pngfix,


    # February 1, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    hmmm no joy setting the top:-30px or even -3000px even :?

    finally tested it in IE 8 and it works fine, 6 destroys it which i expected anyway


    # February 1, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    tried that, no luck im afraid.
    i have the top on #sidebar set to 0 but it is ignoring the top rule completely :?


    # February 4, 2010 at 7:28 am

    yeah that made the firefox, safari etc.. version look the same as the IE version, even in my IE stylesheet it didnt make any difference :?

    anyway, i fixed it now :D

    i removed the mask and made the #container relative and positioned the #sidebar absolute to that.

    cheers for the help rob!
