Aligning text in IE

Hi, I've attempted to write a clever site navigation system using style
sheets. I think I've got it doing what I wish to achieve in firefox, see
http://www.cronkshaw.co.uk/lowerclowes The problem is I don't know how
to make it look reasonable for IE6.
I understand that I will not be able to get the drop down menu's to
work, what I would like to achieve is the basic top level selection to
appear all on the same level across the top of the page, ie both the
left and right aligned bits on the same line, rather than on two lines
as now. Are there any useful tools to help me? or are there some quick
fixes?
Any other helpful advice also gratefully received.
Thanks in advance.

Ignoring your main question as it's time for me to hit the hay...:

Your menu's partly broken in Firefox, at least for me. When you mouse
over "Visits", the menu that drops down immediately shoots off to the
left and then vanishes as soon as you try to move the pointer over any
part of it!

And from a usability point of view, some visual clue that "Animals" has
a sub-menu might be an idea, too.

You may want to take a look at:

The system works well in both IE and Gecko browsers. It's what I use on
my site.

I have a string with a bunch of whitespace in it, and a series of chunks of that string whose indices I need to find. However, the chunks have been whitespace-normalized, so that multiple spaces and newlines have been converted to single spaces as if by ' '.join(chunk.split()). Some example data to clarify my problem: py> text = """\ .... aaa bb ccc .... dd eee. fff gggg .... hh i.

Dear All Is there an HTML way of aligning the images on this page http://www.ageconcernleics.com/review03/chairs03.html so that they appear evenly spaced relative to the text column on the left. In a perfect world I would like the top of the first photo to be aligned with the first line of text. Thanks

Hello all, I need to know if you can vertically align Items within an ItemTemplate. For example I have two columns, one column has a stack of 6 textboxes, my second column can have 1 to n number of textboxes, but when there is only one textbox I need to be able to anchor it to the top of the column, at present it centers itself in the middle. Does anyone have any idea how to accomplish this?

I've got a list of word substrings (the "tokens") which I need to align to a string of text (the "sentence"). The sentence is basically the concatenation of the token list, with spaces sometimes inserted beetween tokens. I need to determine the start and end offsets of each token in the sentence. For example:: py> tokens = py> text = '''\ .... She's gonna write .... a book?'''

Dear NG-readers, I want to align text right to an image. The last line of text should align with the bottom edge of the image. Unfortunately, the results using my poor CSS knowledge mounted in text which starts at the bottom line of the image and continues below. For an example go here: http://tomasio.at/temp/test_valign.html I want to achieve the following look: http://tomasio.at/temp/correct.html

I have some plain text data and some SGML markup for that text that I need to align. (The SGML doesn't maintain the original whitespace, so I have to do some alignment; I can't just calculate the indices directly.) For example, some of my text looks like: TNF binding induces release of AIP1 (DAB2IP) from TNFR1, resulting in cytoplasmic translocation and concomitant formation of an intracellular signaling complex comprised of TRADD,...

Hello: I've finally made the effort to ween myself from overly using tables and use CSS for my positioning. However, I am having a problem with my navigational menu properly aligning in Firefox, despite the fact that I have gotten a green light from W3. link to problem page: I didn't see a feature to attach my css code so I pasted sections of the code that dealt with layout and navigation below. Thanking you in advance,

I have a website that has images on it, and underneath the images are text. My only option of aligning the images and text separate from each other, is to do <div align="right">, <center>, or <div align="left">. Neither of them help with what I want to do, and nor does <display:inline> or <float:right>, even adding them to the image links does no good. My Question: I would like the images to be right next to each other on the page, with the...
