i have to divs which should both be the same length/height because of a piece of javascript. this works fine in ie but in firebird it does not. i have tried putting content in the divs and even worse the content does not display in the divs. the attached files might help.

thanks[/b]

firebird div height will not display

height is not applied by the w3c model, only width. IE displays height when you don't put a XHTML DTD, when you do, it complies with the W3C standards...

what are you trying to accomplish with the javascript that needs identical heights?

firebird div height will not display

both browsers recognize height values i've specified for H1 on a site i'm working on. however, with the XHTML-Strict and Transitional DTDs, firebird doesn't display the height correctly, whereas IE does.

here is the site: http://www.esultants.com/s/shelley/

view it in firebird, and note the border-left and border-right of the main content headers. they extend past the base of the header image. in IE, it should look flawless.

what gives?
