I have a problem on a test page that I have created for my site redesign. The page displays perfectly in IE6, Firefox and Opera 7, but the DIV that contains the main content appears below the sidebar when viewed using IE5.5 and 5.0.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

Error in IE5 and 5.5

IE is what is causing it. If you put your page into Quirks Mode IE6 will render like IE5.0,, which is bad in that you'll have to figure out what the actual resolution is, but good in that at least all IE will render the same so you only have to "hack for IE" once, and not differently for various versions of IE.

Thanks for the advice. Switched to Quirks mode and managed to track down the offending div. Problem solved. Laughing out loud
