Can anyone tell me how (or if) IE 6 interprets negative margin values? IE 6 is the only browser that doesn't seem to display correctly. I'll post examples later this morning.

Negative margin values in IE 6?

Hi blueice02,
IE will handle negative margins fine.
One thing to check is that the page is in standards mode.

Hope that helps

new problems...

To see examples of how those negative margins are working, go to debug images. The css file I am using is at this link and the actual html can be found here. My first goal is get IE to look like Safari. My next goal is to figure out how to get the Mozilla flavors to stop displaying the ugly scroll bars. Not even IE does that. I have even tried changing the overflow property to "hidden" but they still show up. They seem tied to the negative margins since when I comment out the negative margin attributes in the css they will disappear. Any thoughts anyone?
