CSS HTML newbie problem
April 22, 2006 3:47 AM   Subscribe

Could anyone help me with a frustrating html / css problem relating to a glitchy display in internet explorer?

The page is here, the css is here.

It looks right in firefox, but in iexplorer there is a strip of background tan color to the right of the light blue section (the header_address div) and the menubar (the menuh-container div).

There is also a file csshover.htc - to fix the menu in explorer, that part is just copied from someone else, so I don't really understand it clearly... I am not even sure it is relevant, but just in case.

For both of the relevant divs I have width set to 100%. So why the retarded display in explorer? Sorry if it is something stupid and obvious, but sometimes I need these things pointed out as I am a noob.

Thank you all in advance for your time / attention in this issue.

FWIW, that little strip of tan is also there using Safari.

Best answer: This looks like it works:

MARGIN: 0px;

I'm pretty much a noob too, so I have no idea if that's valid or if it breaks anything else, but it looks like it's rendering the way you want it.

btw the tan strip is there in firefox as well, you just don't see it until you scroll over.

Response by poster: BINGO! juv3nal, you rock, I never thought to play with the body tag but that is obviously what's needed.

Thanks so much, now I can stop pissing around and get on with better things!

I added the margin fix and validated the pages. It seems to work in all browsers now. Here is my version.

Is this in Khmer? Because you don’t have language tagging on the html element or whenever the language changes. You also should declare a character encoding (correctly done on the server, whose setting is supposed to prevail, but if you put it in your Web page it works as a backup; UTF-8 seems appropriate).
