Stepdown problem?

  • # August 11, 2009 at 6:54 am


    This is my first post, so forgive me for any missing details.

    Basically I’m having a problem with two elements dropping down. The left and right main DIVs. I’ve tried everything I can through troubleshooting sites. But nothing seems to shift them back up again. I’ve added borders to all the DIVs to illustrate where’s it’s going wrong. This is a shot from in IE7.

    The actual page is here:
    The CSS file is here: … style3.css

    Some of things I’ve tried:
    – Removing all margins (except for the container)
    – Changing line-height: 0;
    – Adding height to the DIVS (still pushes down)
    – adding more that n enough width to each main DIV in case this is the issue.

    I’ve really run out of ideas and avenues, so anyone who can help would be a lifesaver.

    Thanks in advance.

    I see no step down in FF 3.5 or IE7. Is it still showing?

    Please tell me that’s just a mock up and not the real site. All of the content is just images, I don’t have the vocabulary to tell you just how bad an idea that is. Suffice to say, it will render your site invisible to all search engines.
