I have a strange little error...In IE6 naturally. I've got a small sidebar with text/links in it. But on each page in IE6, the last item in the sidebar somehow hops out of the div and shows up below it. Sometimes, it even repeats! Works fine in everything else. What did I do wrong? This is still under development...

padding: 24px;

Things I've tried:
putting height at auto. placing the UL inside a p tag. adding overflow:hidden. and a slew of other changes. GAH! Please give me some guidance. Thanks!

Your problem is due to trying

Your problem is due to trying to support IE6 Laughing out loud

This is a known bug, and if I recall, the fix is easy enough; I just have to look it up, as I have trash-canned IE6 support unless there's a lot of extra $$$ involved.

While I or one of the others here find your fix, please read the sticky posts at the top of the forum. Among other things discussed, there are instructions for posting code.

Edit: Well, that didn't take long; It was as I remembered, an issue with comments. See IE6 duplicate text bug.



If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
