IE6 problem, Three Pixel Jog or float drop

IE6 problem, Three Pixel Jog or float drop

I used CSS sculpture v3 to create this site - index.htm - which is almost ready to go live.

However i have a problem when the page is viewed in IE6, the content div drops below the left navigation div. I have searched the internet for solutions to this, i think its called Three Pixel Jog or float drop but none seem to work. Can anybody offer any solutions?

Thanks in advance

Roy

try adding display: inline; to the two css rules as hown here:

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #leftColumn1 {

background-color: #ACCC6E;

float: left;

padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */

width: 170px;

text-align: right;

display:inline;

}

/* Contains the main page content. When using a mutliple column layout the margins will be set to account for the floated columns' width, margins, and padding. */

#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {

margin: 0 0 0 170px; /* Sets the margin properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */

padding: 0px 0px 0px 0px; /* Sets the padding properties for an element using shorthand notation (top, right, bottom, left) */

width: 790px;

height:610px;

background-repeat:no-repeat;

background-position:top right;

display:inline;

}



this will not affect any browser apart from IE6

Hi Dave

Thanks for your prompt reply.

I added the code but it had no effect.

Are you testing locally as I do not see the changes in your css files online

I am sorry but at the moment I do not have a solution for you, all the normal fixes for IE6 that I use do not solve this issue.

Perhaps one of the WA support teams knows of a solution that applies to this situation.

Add the following:
<!--[if lte IE 6]>
<style type="text/css">
#outerWrapper #contentWrapper #content {
width:787px;
}
</style>
<![endif]-->



just before this line:
<!-- InstanceEndEditable -->
</head>

Hi

Thank you Jason & Dave for your help

I need to add some more rules to the conditional statement, to correct a couple of other minor probs with IE6
