Using IE(6), if you view this page i think you'll see that the divs are where i've intended them to be, in particular, div#footer being flush w/ the viewport.

However, if you view this page you'll see that the div#footer does not "meet" the statusbar (is not flush as the first URL)
(EDIT: i think those URL's are opposite of what i described-- you'll doesn't matter-- you'll see what i mean)

had this same issue one other situation to my recollection, but i never found the solution-- someone told me to look at blueman's tips or manblue or something. i dunno... never got it...

anyway-- some several months later, it's back to haunt me. i've been using basically the same old as Generated stylesheets and the accompanying html generated w/ it-- circa sept'05-- 'cept this is the only 3-col version, which is the only type subject to this particular querk.

both of the pages linked above use the same stylesheet. i'm looking for the proper solution.

what causes this problem.

.stridex, .oxy10, or .clearfix? IE gave me zits!

Are you

a) using absolute positioning,
b) testing in 1024 res

by any chance?

I'm on 1152 and neither of them line up with the viewport. They both do in Firefox though.

hosting provider playing a gag?

tph-- thanks for your input!

no absolute positioning that i'm aware of (although i did try fixed on the navcontainer, which i still may use... for this template)

1280x960 - speaking of which-- does anyone have a report on whether the "resize" component of Web Developer extension is an "accurate" facility for testing display/ aspect ratio/ whatever w/ IETab?

... wait a minute... are you NOT getting the "messed up" footer? i'm looking at it now, and it doesn't look wrong to me currently. that's weird!

yea or nay: does it appear as though the rgb(185, 179, 219) footer div thing is the bottom-most object on your display? i'm only concerned w/ your answer in regard to those pages which have so little, or no content, that the #maincol has not enough {height} to push this problem-div to the bottom.

where is this blueman who supposedly has the solution? someone have a URL? is it a website, or a person/ member -- couldn't find either.

Here we go Laughing out loud

In IE, the footer on thanks.php lines up fine.

on news.php, there's a gap of about 2 inches.
