Weird: IE renders fragment of HTML twice

Hi,

I'm having the following problem. It regularly happens that bits of
text in the page are repeated a bit further down. The text in question
appears only once in the HTML code.

How much of the text is repeated depends on what's above the original
location of the text in HTML. When I remove some HTML above, the
repeated bit gets smaller or disappears.

There is no apparent relation with any special tag, the repeated bit
can be regular text of a link for example.

If the repeated bit is a link, then moving the mouse over the repeated
bit triggers mouseOver in the original but not in the repeated bit
itself. Moving the mouse over the original has the same effect.

Also see: http://www.winsweb.net/gallery/v/klad/ieghost.jpg.html

1 is the bit repeated, 2 is the original. The screenshot was taken
during mouseover on the repeated bit.

So, somehow IE renders a bit of ghost text. Does anyone know what the
cause could be?

Regards,
Edwin

Are you having columns in percentage widths, which add up to 100%
width? Like 4 columns of 25% width or 2 of 50%?

Duplicate bug (not sure if it's called that).
Make sure you leave a little space to the right of the columns, like
add them up to be 99%, not 100%.
Also: don't have <!-- comments --> in between the columns.

No, I have lots of room left on the right. Still tried to change all my
100% widths to 99%, but to no avail. Thanks all the same.

I'm still sure it's the same bug ;-)
Can you give a URL to your test example?

It's not online yet, but I may be able to send you an HTML version.

If you don't have anywhere online to upload it, you can post the code
in here. Make sure it's an exact copy paste though, to avoid false
errors etc :-)

While obfuscating my code for posting (top secret project ;-) well,
sort of) I noticed that there was still commentary there (missed one
line). I removed it and that worked. Thanks!

One more bit of (quite important) advice:

If you follow that advice, people will be more willing to respond.
Added bonus: it helps keeping you out of people's killfiles ;-)

The form elements present a major challenge in IE. Apparently, IE renders the legend element in odd way.

When one set position: relative, IE chokes and does not always displays the legend element; or pushes it off the page. Negative margins do not help either since the background falls outside the border. In addition, the behavior...
