Mispositioned Text

See my home page (per my signature below).

With a Mozilla-based browser, the text beginning "Your call is important
to us." appears to the left of the sidebar box titled "Statistics ".
This is what I intended.

With an IE-based browser, the text appears below the sidebar box.

Is this a bug in IE, or is there something wrong with how I created the
page?

Remove the "width: 90%" in .quote.
IE did not flow the text around the floated element. Rather it decided
that the specified width took precedence and moved the block to where
there was enough width to display it.
Use "margin-left: 5%" to set the indent for that <p>.

It's because of class=quote in the <p> following the float. Apparently IE
interprets the class width one way and Mozilla another. Dunno who's right,
but historically IE is the culprit.

However, as I think about it now, IE seems to take a percentage of the
whole page and Mozilla a percentage of the remaining space. I just might
go with IE on this one...

Presumably the full-disclosure text, "but not important enough that
we hire people to actually answer it" is styled with display:none.
:-)

Sorry -- I don't know your operation so I shouldn't make assumptions.
But every darn time I hear "your call is important to us", it means
I'm in for a long wait.

I am fairly new to Javascript. I have a form that users fill out to enter an animal to exhibit at a fair. Because we have no way of knowing, how many animals a user may enter, I created a table with a createElement function to add additional entries. The table has the first row of input text boxes already in it. You have to click a button to add another row. That seems to be working fine. How do I pull the information from the input boxes...

I posted a few days ago that it seems to me that the Access 2007 rich text feature does not support: a) full text justification; b) programmatic manipulation. I was hoping that someone might know one way or the other whether that was true or not, or could point me to an article or help text that would. What I have seen so far online and in Access 2007 help seems to confirm the above. But that (or at least (b)) seems incredible that it...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
