text area format....

Hey Jason

Been pulling my hair out trying to figure out why some content positioning is not working. IN the PM area there are 2 links, the first is the one that shows what is happening to the text in the main content area where the text is not running across the screen but rather its being foreshortened (works fine in IE but not the other browsers)

The secomnd link is basically the same dynamic page but the text is fulling the middle column area....

Any help as always is greatly appreciated

Thats an odd one. using Fire Bug to examine the page, if i change the content from 2 paragraph tags:

<h1>Plumbing 3</h1>
<p>Nunc tellus ipsum, condimentum ut dignissim sit.</p>
<p>Nunc tellus ipsum, condimentum ut dignissim sit</p>

to using only 1:
<h1>Plumbing 3</h1>
<p>Nunc tellus ipsum, condimentum ut dignissim sit
Nunc tellus ipsum, condimentum ut dignissim sit</p>

It seams to show as expected.

It also seams to work if i add width to each paragraph:
<h1>Plumbing 3</h1>
<p style="width: 550px;">Nunc tellus ipsum, condimentum ut dignissim sit.</p>
<p style="width:550px;">Nunc tellus ipsum, condimentum ut dignissim sit</p>

thanks for taking a look Jason. Added a min and max width too the container div and that seems to have sorted it.

Cheers again
