The following page biav.net/submitform.html has two problems.
The first is in IE 6.0. The menu does not sit on the right - the curious part is all the other pages do. Check out the response form... http://www.biav.net/formsubmitconfirm.html This is correct.
As I have not changed the template is there something that happens when adding a form?

The code for the right side bar is as follows....

#sidebarwrap { margin-right: 10px; margin-top: 20px; background: white; float: right; width: 240px;}

#sidebar{ height:1%; /*<--corrects flicker*/ padding-left: 10px; padding-right:10px; border: 1px solid #434343; background-color: #ccd7e9; font-size: 0.85em; }

#sidebar h3{ text-align: center; }

#sidebar ul { margin-bottom: 0; text-align: left; }

#sidebar li{ padding-bottom: 5px; font-size: 0.75em; }

#sidebar p { padding: 0 10px 0 0px; text-align: left; }

#sidebar a { display:block;}

The second item that is not working is the TEXT BOX near the bottom. In IE 6.0 it looks fine but in IE 7.0 it goes over the edge. The size of this entry box is only 67 columns. Is there a way to fix this?

The code for the form for the text box is as follows...

Thanks for any help.

Hi Kehfera Your form is

Hi Kehfera

Your form is taking up the whole div and the menu is getting pushed underneath...this is due to one form input textbox being too wide and taking up the whole space.

The textbox under the bit where it says :

"Please include any information you think would be helpful for us to know in selecting materials to send you"

is where the problem lies.
When Ichanged the character width to 37 - e.g.

instead of 67 it all lined up again in I.E.6

Is this the same bit that is messing up in I.E. 7?

Maybe the solution would be too make it less wide but deeper, more rows?

Hopefully someone more experienced will chime in to advise
