Hi Guys

I got a problem here. Pls. look at http://dhr.georgia.gov link. It is positioning properly in IE6.0 but not in NS 7.0. In netscape there is a white patch comming out of the box(next to image).

Any help would be appreciated very much.. Thanks a lot

IE 6.0 VS NS 7.0 and higher

Hi mrkalakota,
I can't see the difference between IE and Netscape, have you fixed it, or is it too early for me to be up Smile

This is probably due to the fact that IE's box model is severly * ahem * flawed. So you' ll have to place this kludge just after your "width:" property: " voice-family: "\"}\""; voice-family: inherit; ". Then, you will have to place a new "width" property after that. I hope this helps! Wink

Hi JC4Life
Have you looked at the link http://dhr.georgia.gov ? My problem is related to netscape not IE. Actually its working fine in IE6.0 but not in Netscape 7.0. Well I specified width for a table still something is pushing towards right. Just look at the link you may see a small white patch comming out of box in netscape next to home page image.
Thanks Smile

Hi Tony

If you are using netscape 7.0 or higher just observe keenly at the right side of the home page image you can see a small white box is comming out.

thanks Smile

Yes, I did notice that because I am using Mozilla 1.4. Perhaps I did not make my point clear, however. Below is an example of what I had to do when I was developing my CSS-based design.

<style>
<!--
#long {
/* width to display in I.E. */
width: 100%;
/* I.E. kludge */
voice-family: "\"}\"";
voice-family: inherit;
/* Normal width */
width: 95%;
}
// -->
</style>
<div id="long">This some long text</div>

I hope that this little bit has helped you in some way. Good luck! Wink

Hi mrkalakota,
In Netscape 7.02 all is fine.
In mozilla firebird 0.6 I can see the white box.

First thing I would suggest is to put a full strict doctype before your HTML tag.
Then remove the spaces after the image and the hspace="1" from the image tag.
If the problem still shows, give the table a border to help see the problem.
table td {border:solid 1px black;}

Hope that helps

I thought it was only IE5/Win that had the bad box model?

Hi DJSdotcom,
IE browsers from 5 up display closer to the standards if the correct doctype is used. My thinking was that even if it was Netscape displaying different to what was wanted, it may still be that Netscape is displaying correctly and IE although it looks correct might be wrong.
So if the page is in strict or standard mode both major browsers should be closer in how they display the page, and it should be easier to correct them both.
Well it makes sense to me Smile
