Another Positioning Issue

Here's the link in the site.

service_area.html

It looks fine in FF and Safari on the MAC.

It looks fine in FF in Windows. Oh my god, look at it in IE7, and I can just image the screw up in IE8 can anyone offer a solution, or do I have something set up wrong.

I'm not really a coder so i really on CSS Sculpter and a few other of the Web Assist products.

It actually looks fine in ie8... ie8 renders similarly to Firefox as far as I can tell. Previous versions of IE are what you need to worry about.

The content seems to be pushed down because of the width of the content wrapper being too wide to fit in the content area. I think you can fix it by reducing the content area a bit like:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {content2.css (line 103)
margin:0 0 0 236px;
padding:0;
width:650px;
}

Thanks for the answer, your work around seems to work as far as the text positioning. However, the left column does not fill the height of the page in IE7. As usual, it works in all other browsers. This is making me crazy. Do you have a fix for that.

Thanks again, you have been very helpful.

Line stretching issues can often be fixed by using "faux columns". Have you tried that technique in css sculptor. It is designed to get around issues like this.

It seems to be ignoring your left column height attribute. You could probably fix it by adding a transparent gif that is 1 px wide and as tall as you need it in the cell manually.

I always select the faux columns in CSS Sclupter. You'll notice ther does not seem to be a problem in other browsers onlr in IE7. argh

Try adding this CSS to the #contentWrapper:

height: 1%;
min-height: 1%;

Justin, Thanks for the idea. I tried it but the results are the same, still not working in IE7

It now looks consistant on all browsers to me. What is the difference you see? Do you have a screen shot?

It was the FAQ page that was still not correct and the contact page, so I just made an adjustment for those pages and now things will be OK.

I really thank you guys for all your help and concern. This forum is very valuable.
