Collapsing empty DIVs on IE/Mac



my Problem is that I want to use an empty div with 20pix height as a
With Firefox and Safari everything is fine. But IE/Mac do not display
the height,
instead there is only a thin line.

The Code is realy simple at the moment just 2 divs. One is my header,
the other is my

<div id="header"><im g src="logo.jpg"/></div>
<div id="seperator"> </div>

#header {
width: 100%;

#seperator {
width: 100%;
height: 15px;
border-top: 5px solid white;
border-bottom: 20px solid white;
background-color: #333333;


What`s my problem ?

IE/Mac is a grossly deficient browser and hardly used anymore. Unless
you have an unusual high percentage of clients that use it, forget about

IE/Mac has a built-in spell checker? :-)

(It is "separator. ")

MacIE ignores empty elements. Add some white space and it should do what
you want. For example:

<div id="seperator" >

BTW, if you plan to use this element multiple places, it should be a
class rather than an id. You might want to fix the spelling on it, too. ;)

I've been caught out by what I thought was an Opera 7.5p1 issue: http://www.spartanicus.utvinternet.ie/test/opera7.5p1_css_background_image_issue.htm but as was pointed out to me this is actually a fault in my code which is exposed by the improved CSS standards support in v7.5p1. The top margin on the <h1> collapses with the zero margin on the <body> element to form a single margin equal to the margin specified on the <h1>.

Hi guys, I've got a page that shows a number of packages available for sale. Each package has a little description, and then a (sometimes long) list of features for each package.

So I borrowed some code (can't remember from where), which was designed for expandable/collapsible menu trees, and used it to...

Here collapsing seems to work differently in vb.net 2005 from that I use to see in vb.net 2003: Using the collapsing in vb.net 2003 shows the whole interface of the methods, subroutines, functions, etc, while in vb.net 2005 those parts after the name (arguments, etc) are missing. Is there an option to show them as well, or this is the only working method of the collapsing? What amazed me that the collapsing in the vC.net 2005 shows the...
