I have just spent the past 3 hrs trying to figure this out...

heres the link for the page im working on...


its fine in NN and moz, i only tested it in IE 6 so far and it does not position where i want it to in IE...

there are 4 main <divs> : header, side nav, content, + footer.

i think what is happening is that IE is displaying the content div after the left nav bar, for whatever reason.

What i tried: the content div in this case is a big table (which im thinking about just scrapping, thats probably part of the problem). I tried plaving it all in its own div giving it clear:both; display:inline; display;block; position;relative... i tried it all....

Does anyone know what I need to do to get this to display correctly in IE?

I can't striaght away see what the problem is, but using a strict doctype isn't a good idea unless you can get it to validate. It looks as though you are trying to write html with a xhtml doctype

(not good)

As I said there is nothing I can say is specifiacally wrong, but put in an html 4.01 doctype and mork on the validity first is my suggestion

when i put in the <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN"> doctype it fudges with the css layout.

im going to try this...
the html that is in the content div for that page resides in one big table. if i take all that text out of the table and place them in their own divs, it may work. do you have any other ideas??

im only 3 months young at all this...
