If you view the site in IE6 ( and below I assume ) there is a 3px gap on either side of the center column, leaving a slight gap between the left and right columns of the site. If this were simply a cosmetic issue, I wouldn't mind to terribly much - however, it shortens the center column enough to cause the gallery to only display two rows of images as opposed to three. I was told to take a look at http://www.positioniseverything.net/explorer.html , but couldn't find a bug that fit my description. The site displays correctly in Firefox and IE7.

Edit: Forgot site URL :bigoops:

Doesn't seem there is anything wrong with it.

I checked this site: http://www.gadgephile.com/ABHQ/ and it all looks good. I have no idea what you are talking about, sorry I cannot be of any help.

Hmm...It sounds close, but I don't have any < p > tags inside of my container. This wouldn't apply then, right?

Which browser did you view it in? So far, I've only had this problem in IE6.

I still haven't been able to

I still haven't been able to find a fix, or even identify, this bug. I've stripped down my CSS to the basics, stripped down the html to the minimum, and here's what I have. It displays fine in FF and IE7. When viewed in IE6, however, there's a 3px gap on either side of the middle column.

For some reason, html won't post using the code tags, so I've uploaded it to the following URL: www.gadgephile.com/ABHQ/bug.html

Below is my stripped down CSS file.

body {
	padding: 0;
	margin: 0;
	color: #333;
	font: normal 1em "Lucida Sans Unicode",sans-serif;
	background: yellow;
}

#wrapper {
	width: 773px;
	height: 600px;
	margin: 0 auto;
	padding: 7px 4px 7px 7px;
	border: 3px solid #2e2e2e;
	background: red;
	overflow: hidden;
}

#menu {
	display: inline;
	padding: 0;
	margin: 0;
	width: 249px;
	height: 604px;
	float: left;
	background: white;
	
}

#main {
	margin-left: 249px;	
	margin-right: 67px;
	padding: 7px;
	height: 580px;
	background: green;
	border: 3px solid #2e2e2e;
}

#rightbckgrnd {
	margin: 0;
	padding: 0;
	display: inline;
	width: 67px;
	height: 604px;
	float: right;
	background: blue;
}

Assume this is fixed now?

It all looks fine in IE6 at 800x600 and 1024x768

Yes, I found a fix for it

Yes, I found a fix for it late last night. The fix uses IE's quirk mode and negative margins to get rid of the 3px jog. Thanks everyone!
