View Full Version : Resolved IE6 bug - doubling up on a bit of content

Nov 11th, 2009, 03:19 PM
Hey guys, i need help on this tiny but quite frustrating problem... I've never come across it before, and i have no idea how to phrase it so i can get answers from google, so here's an image that explains what i'm on about...


I have my files here (http://crosswebdesigns.net/display/index.php?dir=2009/taturaSES/) if you want to peak and work it out. But if you seen it before, and could direct me to a solution that would be great.

Try adding margin-right:-3px; to #donate

Oh sweet, that -3px to right margin did the trick. It made things a little more complicated cause then i had to separate the IE6 to IE7 hack css, since IE7 did not have this problem (a couple of others). Obviously this does not leave the element lining up on the right side, so i had to absolute position it.

Just a heads up for anyone else who runs into this problem and finds this through search.

Thanks dude for the fix and link!

To target IE6, you could use

* html #donate{
btw, I think you may avoid writing hacks for IE7, if you neatly code your document.(If my memory is correct, I haven't written any IE7 hacks in any of my sites)
