Okay, paste this html in safari and you should see what I'm talking about. Is this a known bug or am I missing something?

Don't know how Safari will react, but a full and valid doctype and character set declaration couldn't hurt. Plus, did you also apply zero margins to divs or html?

And why isn't the text in something, like a paragraph?

IE is not fixed

No, it doesn't. IE does not support the table display properties.

You still haven't told us what your issue is, but I'll guess that it is about the small gap between the two elements. True? The KHTML rendering engine (the underlying engine for Safari and Konqueror) renders the white space you have in your markup. Bug? Not necessarily; it's allowed, if not always desired.

Try this:

You should also mark the text for whatever it is. The div element is non-semantic.

When posting a snippet, it is a Good Thing
