http://www.guycloutier.com/adisq/index12.html

this occurs if I put the background-color for the category classes

div.category,div.categoryArtist {
background-color: #85a5cb; /*here*/
padding: 10px;
margin: 10px 0px;
}

anyone ever came across this?

mysterious disappearing text in IE 6.0

Dorobo,

can you describe the error which you wish to correct? I see some white paragraphs on white background at the bottom of the page in categoryLast , however this is an easy fix so likely not the issue. Tell me more. Thanks.

mysterious disappearing text in IE 6.0

What a cool effect!! Shock Shock Shock Scroll the page and watch the text flicker on and off! What CSS did you find to do that?

Seriously, I think the problem is with hidden text, if you let the page sit still, lots of areas of text are hidden . . . highlight it and see the text that is hidden.

mysterious disappearing text in IE 6.0

fixed the categoryLast problem

what i encounter from my IE 6.0 is text disappearing ( like starchase have described it ) in every "category", "categoryArtist" classes for no reason ( except when I remove the background-color declaraion ).

mysterious disappearing text in IE 6.0

Strange effect, what seems to be happening is the text hides behind the image.
If you put the text in its own div that floats left it should always be visible.

<div class="category">
			<div class="release">
				<img src="images/index/releases/la_vie_danse.jpg" alt="" />

             <div style="float:left;">
				    <b>Catégorie: </b><i>Populaire</i><br />
				    <b>Artiste: </b><i>Gabrielle Destroismaisons</i><br />

				    <b>Titre: </b><i>La vie qui danse</i><br />
				    <b>Extrait: </b><a class="link0" href="audio/suivre_letoile.mp3">Suivre l'étoile</a>
             </div>
				<div class="clearer"></div>
			</div>

mysterious disappearing text in IE 6.0

aaaaah many thanks tony! Wink

I should really start boxing my data more often heh

...but, now, another problem arise as my text renders under the image in mozilla/opera because of the float left attribute. Should I specify a pixel width for my div?

mysterious disappearing text in IE 6.0

Hi Dorobo,
Have you tried setting the width of the new div.
It should be a bit less then the size of the whole column minus the image and any margins.
