I didnt really want to ask this question, becuase i feel hat I ask too many, but I am slightly confused with this topic and something went wrong with it. On a layout I am coding i have 3 elements floated to the left, and in netscape when you make the window smaller everything stays how it should, but in IE they all stack up when the window is made smaller, and if the window is too large the bottom floated div moves up and to the left.
the layout is http://www.lordinuyasha.com/canz.php

also for some reason the flash banners arent showing up at all in netscape and firefox or mozilla

any input is greatly appreciated
:D

I'm not sure about the floating issue, but flash not showing up means you probably haven't installed the plugin yet.

And don't be afraid to ask as many questions as necissary (just do some research before hand ;)).

well i fixed the issue I had with the footer, but I still cant figure out that problem in IE where the content drops under the nav, or the banner problems in mozilla

I just fixed the problem with the banners, for some reason mozilla didnt like the html that flash gave me, so I installed the new version of flash and updated the html.

Now all thats left is the problem with the content moving under the nav when the window is too small...I am completely baffled with this :?

Code: [ Select ]
body{
  background:#1F1F1F url('http://www.lordinuyasha.com/_img/v3/bgslice.gif') repeat-y;
  margin:0px;
  padding:0px;
  min-width: 889px;
  font:12px Tahoma, sans-serif;
  color:#FFFFFF;
}
  1. body{
  2.   background:#1F1F1F url('http://www.lordinuyasha.com/_img/v3/bgslice.gif') repeat-y;
  3.   margin:0px;
  4.   padding:0px;
  5.   min-width: 889px;
  6.   font:12px Tahoma, sans-serif;
  7.   color:#FFFFFF;
  8. }


Min-width unsupported by internet explorer

You should be able to create a container div and wrap the whole page inside that. Just give the container a width of 889.

Did you try validating that little bit of CSS ;) see if you can work out the answer yourself.

In addition, you only need one of those lines of code to get it to work.

Well, it works fine in FF. And I just spent the last 5 mins fiddling in IE, when all of a sudden it worked :? Took me a while to work it out, but if you use:

Code: [ Select ]
#containerq{
  width:892px;
}
  1. #containerq{
  2.   width:892px;
  3. }


All is well. Strange If you ask me, the width should not affect the pos absolute stuff at all. IE has a thing about 3 pixcels though......
