View Full Version : Help with cross browser issues IE and firefox PC only

09-19-2011, 03:57 AM

I am working on a website and it works perfectly in safari, firefox, opera and chrome on a mac but on a pc in IE and firefox the text runs over the div.

The css for the text is as follows

* {
body {
font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, Tahoma;
font-size: 10px;
color: #fff;
line-height: 11pt;
p {
margin-top: 0em;
margin-bottom: .75em;

/* LAYOUT DIVS - left bar */
#main_text {
width: 210px;
height: 300px;
padding-left: 18px;
z-index: 4;

and I have added this code in to try and change ie only but it is not working

<!--[if IE]>
<link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="include/ie_fixes.css" media="all" />

<code>/* =Internet Explorer Fixes
body {
font-size: 9px;
line-height: 9px;
font-stretch: condensed;

p {
margin-top: 0px;
margin-bottom: 0px;

#main_text {
width: 220px;

Any guidance would be most appreciated.

I'm not seeing your issue at all. I viewed in IE8 and FF 4 and I see dont see any text "running over the div".

Thanks for your replies.

It is happening on the location page and with firefox 6 on a pc. Not really sure how to target something like that especially as i am happy how the paragraph styles work when using firefox for the mac.

Any chance your Firefox browser is zoomed in a bit? Hit Ctrl-0 to get it back to default zoom.
