I asked this question a while ago and thought I'd cracked it, but nope...

I have a 3-col layout, left and right cols fixed, center col %. Things were fine at original sizings, but I decided I wanted a smaller right col, and it broke. I've got things sorted in IE6 WindowsXP (and IE7 is also fine). In IE6 Windows 2000, there appears to be some float drop going on, and possibly some peekaboo (bottom banners/text). There are no widths specified in the right col; the only fixed widths present are those of the graphics, and there is plenty of room on either side (or should be).

Is there some bug/rendering "challenge" particular to IE6 Win2000 that doesn't affect IE6 WinXP? Doesn't seem logical...

Screenshots attached. Page is here: http://www.horseink.com/workroom/GMHAstatic/index.html. I can post links to css, but not sure anyone wants to bother wading through it all. [As far as I can tell, I've fixed the left col nav (click-drop) problems; I think this was a screenshot rendering problem, so I'm not bothered about that, at least.]

If there are issues specific to Win 2000 (and not to XP), I'd be grateful to know about them. Thanks!

Found it!

This forum is great - I can spend 6 hours looking for a fix, break down and ask for help, and within 10 minutes, I've found a solution :rolleyes:

It was a matter of 1px being added to a margin (that didn't look like it should make any difference). One stinkin' pixel...Weird that it mattered to one IE6 and not the other.

Oh, well. As they say, it's the little things [in css] that count. Wink

Cheers!
