Hi,

I'd sure appreciate any ideas you can toss my way on this one!

The site in question is http://www.spinopsys.com

The problem is that the sidebar is too wide in ie, and is being forced below the conent. Usually I can fix this using the beloved * html hack. This time though, there is no horizontal padding or margin anywhere! (actually, that's not quite true: there's 10px left padding on the <li>, but the sidebar is 17px too wide. Also, removing that 10px didn't change a thing).

I'm pretty handy with css, but this one has me stumped.

BTW, both the xhtml and css validate.

Thanks!!!

I really should be working...

Totally stumped by this ie issue

I think you may find it's your google ads; width 200px? margin-left:40px
sidebar 228px.

Try commenting out your ad block and see what happens.

Totally stumped by this ie issue

Yeah, it's definitely the Google ad.
Is anyone else seeing the problem in IE with the grey boxes under Today on Spinsosys or is it just me?
And something is forcing a horizontal scrollbar at 1024 x 780 too.

How to get help
Post a link. If you can't post a link, jsFiddle it.

Ahhhhhh....

See, this is why I should never use inline styles!

Thanks for that catch.

Now, onto the next problem...
