Hi,

Im having a few problems with the layout of my webpagehttp://www.perisandcorr.com.

Everything works fine in Firefox, IE7, Opera and Safari but on the homepage in IE6 the menu bar on the left and the news section float to the right.

This is what happens-http://www.htmlforums.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=9557&d=1227798207

I have no access to IE6 as I am on a Mac so can't play around and see what works.

I will post the HTML and CSS here to see if anyone can spot an obvious solution.

Thanks in advance.

Dyfrig

Hello Dyfrig,
Looks like a little div-itis there. If you don't mind, I cleaned it up a little...

The full image paths and attached CSS are only to make it work by cut/paste that code to a new html document and not have to edit anything.

Thaks for that, looks like you have dome laods of work there.

Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but will do over the weekend.

Thanks a lot for your help.
