Tabs Issue In IE6

  • # September 6, 2008 at 1:27 am

    Hi guys,
    well I have been working on a website for a client for a while now and am very nearly finished, however I have been stopped dead by this little bug. I’m fairly sure its something pretty simple that I am overlooking but for the life of me I can’t figure out what it is.

    Basically these tabs appear above content items as a sort of quick access menu in Drupal 5. I have tried floating them, removing padding/margin, setting widths and setting them to inline display and no change except for a slight indent caused by the display: inline.

    In IE 6 and 5.5 they look like this

    But in all other browsers they appear correctly (safari, opera, firefox, chrome, IE 7, IE 8).

    Any one got any ideas?

    On floated objects like that, IE 6 definitely needs a width set. Have you tried making sure you have display at block, float left, and widths declared.

    No I haven’t thanks for the reply. Will try it and get back to you.
