Here is the page I'm trying to build : http://www.culture-anime.net/sandbox/newkyotan/

The footer is absolutely positionned at the bottom of the page.

Please try to play with the window height in IE, a 1px space appears/disappears/appears/disappears...below the footer. It looks like a rounding error or something. That's not the first time I've had this problem.

(there are also bugs with opera when I try to resize the window but if I reload the page it comes back to normal so I can live with it)

Do you have an idea how to get rid of that little annoyance ?

Thx !

1px white space below the footer in IE

neat page. That one pixel gap in IE may bug you, but probably noone will notice it. You could save yourself the heartache and live with it.

If you don't already know about Image Replacement you may want to check out http://css-discuss.incutio.com/?page=ImageReplacement as a way of using fancier than the usual fonts, for things like headers and menu items. Just a thought.

Yes you're probably right.

Thanks for your link about image replacement ! Unfortunately I can't use it because this layout is for a friend and I don't know what he will use for titles, menu items and such in the future.

Talking about rounding errors in IE, a very annoying one is that the way IE centers the background of a page is different from the way it centers the content of the page : the rounding seems to be different and the central div sometimes doesn't align with the background of the page. I've just found that replacing "background-position: 50% 0;" by "background-position: expression(document.body.clientWidth/2 - half-the-width-of-the content);" (which should be exactly the same) for IE solves that problem. I don't know if this is a known fix or not but it works well.
