Hi,

I'm doing a site which has 3 floated divs. I have tested on several browsers (as many as I can get my hands on!) and it seems to work well.

The problem I am having is that #boxright div overwrites the footer when the content gets too long in Netscape 6. I have added a <br style="clear: both;" /> under the floated divs but it does'nt seem to work. I think the site looks OK otherwise.

Any ideas?

The URL is

Floated div overwriting footer

Using <div class="spacer"></div>, styled like so:

div.spacer {
clear: both;
}

...may solve your problem - I made a test file in which IE6 fails to clear a float using <br style="clear: both /> (Firebird succeeds in clearing the float with this method though), so maybe this affects Netscape 6 as well?

Floated div overwriting footer

That does'nt seem to work either. Thanks anyway.

Does anybody know of any issues with Netscape 6.2 and clearing floats?
It seems to work fine in Netscape 7, Mozilla, Opera, Ie6, Ie5.5.

Cheers
