    Absolute Positioning Problem

    When I set an absolute position for an i-frame or a div, IE interprets the position differently to Firefox. How many other browsers could be misinterpreting my instructions and what is the way around this please?

    I am only aware of IE that has bugs with positioning off the top of my head. One of my favorite sources for this is webdevout.net

    Thanks for the info, Howard. I'm sure it'll come in handy, only I've fixed it. The positioning of the elements, over the bg image in this design is very unforgiving (1px tolerance) and I had used a percentage background position. Converting to pixels seems to fix the problem.

    Thanks for looking and sorry if I wasted anyone's time. It might be handy if this thread is kept open, as you never know what could crop up next, with IE!

    Regards,
