    Hi.

    I'm new here, and new to website design in general. I built my website in Dreamweaver using mostly CSS. I tested it in IE for the first time today, and found a huge problem. In IE 6 and IE 7, a box seems to jump down below where it is supposed to be. It looks fine in Safari, Firefox, Opera, and IE 8. I'm not sure what to do. I've been reading a lot of sites, trying to find the solution. I'm not sure if I need a special IE conditional comment, or if this is caused by floats, etc.

    Fixed! I added 'zoom:1' to the code and the problem is gone. I don't know why..... but it worked.

    Hello.

    We'll probably need a bit more than that. Can you point us at your page? Provide your HTML/CSS so we can find the problem?

    If you go back and look at the time of his edit and your comment, it appears that he added the "fixed" comment first. Who knows what happened. Sometimes the post-order and timestamps get messed up.
