Hi there,

There is a page on one of my recent sites that has a funny 'quirk' (please follow link):

www.marksmanproof.co.uk/websites/sella/educational.htm

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page in IE, you will see that 4 characters have been knocked out of sync. They appear to be the last 4 characters of the last word in the main content div.

Dave
