View Full Version : CSS: H2 Background Appears Only After a < BR >

02-04-2005, 12:21 AM
Good evening, ya'll. If anyone can help with issue, I'd be greatly appreciative. My site (test version) is right here:


In Firefox, all displays perfectly. As ususal, I'm having issues in IE (cue: sound of teeth grating). Without a < br > at the top of the left column, it displays incorrectly. The right column uses the same class but does not include the break and shoes up incorrectly. The font is right, but it loses the background color and border. The same thing happens to the middle column. You can scroll down to see an example of how the date bar should display.

Stylesheet is located here:

I'm also getting an extra space after my banner image... can't figure that one out either.

Any suggestions on what might be causing this? I've look over every line of code a dozen times and can't even figure out where to start. Thanks!

Most of those errors are related to some Movable Type (a CMS) defaults that are preventing me from actually coding in XHTML transitional by not closing all tags with the />. As far as I can tell, they all come after the errors I'm getting... but thanks for the link.
