Malformed HTML from UserControl


I have an ASPX file, with a table of 3 columns, 2 rows with a usercontrol in
the middle column (in the code snippet stated below, although in reality,
the left hand column would also have a user control).

I have a "footer" on the second/bottom row. However, when the User Control
in the middle column, first row is generating a lot of text, the text is
"squashing" the text in the second role!

Don't believe me? Try it!

Using ASP.NET 1.1 on Windows XP Professional SP1 IIS5.1
Problem also replicable on ASP.NET 1.1 on Windows 2000 Server SP4 IIS5.0

Problem resolved!
This was caused by the use of absolute position in CSS Style sheet and not
