View Full Version : Page not displaying correctly in IE 7

Hi all,

Having a problem with a page that doesn't display correctly in IE 7. It works in every browser, mac or pc, EXCEPT for IE 7 on the pc. I was having some troubles with a sticky footer, which I thought I had solved, but it seems like I didn't. The main content of the page is getting cut off by the footer.

Any help is appreciated!

The validator (http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oneeightyone.com%2FHTML2%2Fabout.htm&charset=%28detect+automatically%29&doctype=Inline&group=0) is throwing an extra closing div tag which is worth sorting out.

Now, in your html the majority of the content is contained within .header_top - including .content_cont. IYou can see this in Firebug, or developer tools.

With your current html, the problem is arising because of the height set on .header_top. This is insufficient for the content of that div and in IE7 results in the problem you're seeing. Remove the height and the problem disappears, however I suspect the base issue is the div tag mismatch.
