View Full Version : IE6/IE7 issue (ul link smooshing)

Nov 18th, 2009, 05:44 AM
Hello: I'm building my first HTML/CSS site for a client. In firefox, IE8, Chrome, Safari, and Opera the site looks fine. In IE6 and IE7 the ul links in my header div are smooshed. I messed with line-height, and margin-bottom and they either stay smooshed or disappear all together. I'm sure there is a simple solution; however, using a mac and not having easy access to IE6 and IE7 makes it a *****. HELP!!!!

The css coding is as follows:

#header ul#nav {
float: right;
font-size: 1.8em;
position: relative;
margin-top: 195px;

#nav li {
display: inline;
padding-right: 57px;

Could you please post a link to your page?

body {
line-height: 1px;
font-size: 62.5%; /*for using em values*/
font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
Change it to a bigger value,say line-height: 1.5;(unit is not necessary)

Thank you. I thought I tried that, but on second try it worked.

Do you know why in IE6/7 the font size/position on the copyright text is off? It looks fine in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, IE8, and Opera.
