hello there!

my page @ http://stephantom.st.funpic.de/temp/pure/ is displayed alright with opera / firefox; but MSIE messes around and eats half of the output. how come?
the problem is surley to be found near the image. first the image floated out of the div. i fixed this with a <br style="clear:both;" />. but now ie eats half or everything of the output. with every reload it's different.
if you mark everything sometimes you can discover the rest of the text but it disappears again when you deselect...

what is wrong?
css is located at http://stephantom.st.funpic.de/temp/pure/style.css

internet explorer messes with page

I suspect that this is a IE bug that causes backgrounds to obliterate text. It can be fixed by reading

http://qsdqsd.free.fr/Articles/MSIE6_CSS_bug_float_right/index2.html

Basically add position: relative; do the contrainer of the dissapeared text.

In your case

#middle 
{
	position: relative;
	margin: 28px 190px 20px 190px;
	padding: 0px 10px 10px 10px;
	border: 1px dashed #fff;
	background: #666;
	overflow:visible;
}

Should fix things.
