    Unhappy overflow trouble with IE - and more

    Hi there im having a problem with my site


    the thing is if you view it in firefox it works exactly like i want.. but in internet explorer the box with the overflow and position:absolute completly messes up.. i have no idea what to do about it so im hoping someone can help me?

    also i have a general question.. how do i do so that when people edit their profile text they dont have to type it in html? because most people in there dont know stuff like <br /> and so on to make a line break..

    thanks in advance
    best regards

    Nothing to wonder about how IE renders your page. To expect a cross browser compatible display, you need to supply a valid markup. For this, first and foremost,you need to have a complete DOCTYPE at the top of your page. I'd recommend an HTML strict one.

    After that, validate your page and fix the errors in it.
