    yet another strange IE rendering problem

    Hi folks. Hope someone can help me with this: http://foxhill-bank.org.uk has developed a strange rendering prob in IE6. After editing the content in the right hand sidebar IE6 is now doing something strange........everything is fully valid and it all looks ok in Firefox and Opera. Not sure how to explain it really, probably best to have a look. Any help/solutions would be greatly appreciated

    Not to sound critical or anything, but when you are typing code, you should do so in a manner that allows yourself, and other users to easily find the problem, and fix it.

    Your css code is a monstrosity. If you can correctly align your code, and post it, I would gladly help you.

    A monstrosity? That's pretty harsh, please elaborate?

    Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude.

    When I viewed your code it was all on one single line across the page. But you must have coded it in arachnophilia or something because I originally opened it in notepad, but now I have it opened in a different program, and it is aligned nicely.



    I have looked over your code, and I am stumped. Are you using javascript to correct the column heights?

    Ah I see, heh, no worries no offence taken, just wondered what you meant as we took great care over the code.

    The only javascript we have is:

    function classSwap(box,class1,class2) {
    if (box.className == class1) {
    box.className = class2;
    } else {
    box.className = class1;
    }
    return false;
    }

    I'm not sure what that's for (a couple of us have been working on this site simultaneously) but I'm pretty sure it has nothing to do with setting heights or whatever (though I could be wrong).

    I saw the client last night and pointed the problem out to him, he said he's not bothered, but, you know, just out of interest I wouldn't mind getting to the bottom of it. Like you, it also has me stumped

    Adding a 'height' value in the css for the footer solved it

    Graft-Creative?

    Permission Please to Partake in a Piece of Plageurism?

    Your css is very impressive (not to mention the site itself), and has converted me to the notion of building in xml. Specifically, you have used the correct css for the menu that I have been trying to do. Actually yours is even better than that I had hoped for.

    Thanks Bazz

    I'm intrigued now, as to who exactly I (subconsciously) plagarised?

    Ah right, I get you now, the similarities are definately there
