Hi,
I am attempting to float some Div's over a table. I have read somewhere about a possible bug in IE5.5, I was wondering if anyone was aware of it existing in IE6. The issue is with whether a div will pick up the correct width from its parent.

It has been suggested that IE5.5 will pick up the width from the element which last had its width formally defined.

so:

   <body>
         <div>
             <div style="width: 200px"/>

               <div>
                     <div style="width: 20%">
                               THIS DIV WIlL BE 20% of the body, not of its parent?
                     </div>
                </div


         </div>

   </body>
[/code]
