So I am designing a site using firefox... looks exactly like I want it to.. as well as in NS7.1

Now... the majority of traffic to this site uses some variation of IE Sad
look at this page http://www.tcsnd.org/tcs1/default1.asp in firefox or NS 7.1
and now look at it in a version of IE...
Maybe it's just my machine but... IE6 on Win98 SE does not the Our Committment: or the God -- The TCS Foundation: stuff at all
With IE6 on Win XP pro it shows the stuff but does weird things to the picture
I am SOOOOO confused

I hate IE how many hacks do I need?

A million hacks are needed.

(Well, ask a stupid question . . . )

If you don't care that everybody uses IE, and only want to design for Firefox, do. I do. Tell everyone to get Firefox. I'm trying my hardest to convert everyone.

TBH, I've given up fixing sites for IE (any version).

I hate IE how many hacks do I need?

Hi rmfred,
At first when the page loaded in IE the "Our Committment" and "God -- The TCS Foundation" sections were not visible.
I switched back to Firefox briefly to see if there was a difference then straight back to IE and the sections were visible.

One thing I would try is setting all the floats to position:relative and display:inline; they help fix may issues with floats and IE.

Hope that helps

Thanks... so far no luck...
I changed from using a background image in the blockquote to just using an image and an image class to float it left

.myfloatleft{float: left;position:relative;display:inline;width:165px;
margin: 5px 10px 0 0;
border-right: 1px solid #555;
border-bottom: 1px solid #555;}

Works fine in FF, IE6 XP Pro... but not at all with IE6 Win98

This is driving me batty

Hi rmfred,
The content becomes visible as soon as you mouse over the menu.
