CSS div positioning IE, Safari and Firefox

2 New Member
The site I'm working on is http://www.m23law.co.u k

I have finally managed to get it dislaying properly in IE and Safari, but now it's broken in Firefox. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

/* Position Container*/

#container {
background: #FFFFFF;
display: table;
padding: 0px;
position: relative;
top: 0px;
left: 50%;
margin-left: -365px;
width: 780px;
height: 100%;
border-right: solid 2px #000066;
border-left: solid 2px #000066;
}

/* Position other elements */

#menu {
position: relative;
float: left;
width: 114px;
height: 100%;
text-align: left;
padding: 0px;
}

.header {
font-style: bold;
position: relative;
top: 0px;
height: 100px;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
text-align: right;
color: #330066;
padding: 0px;
padding-right: 10px;
margin: 0;
}

#contents{
position: relative;
display: block;
float: right;
width: 632px;
height: 100%;
text-align: justify;
padding: 15px;
}

#copyright {
display: block;
position: absolute;
bottom: 0px;
text-align: center;
font-size: 8pt;
width: 100%;
}

You will never get IE to pretend to act like modern browsers without a proper doctype. See the article about doctypes above.

Hi everybody, I'm not quite sure whether this request is appropriate here; if not I'm sorry. I have finally managed to get things positioned, scaled etc. properly. However I'm only able to check this on WindowsXP (ie 5.1 ie5.5 Netscape 7.2 Mozilla and Firefox), but not on other browser/platform combinations. I would appreciate it if someone (anyone) would be willing to check the display of...

Hi - The following page: http://www.geocities.com/chris_ciotti/Holding/site-template-sliced.html was generated with Photoshop CS and uses CSS for positioning. The page validates (unfortunately, you can't validate it from the geocities server as they paste in a bunch of crud which hoses the validation) but the top row of buttons (home, about etc) do not show up in IE 6, they are about 6px too far down. I'm not really sure why this is as...

I'm developing a web application, that has a left-sided navigation menu and a centre-right content area. The menu is static and therefore is in an INCLUDEd file. I'm wanting to add a link to a context-sensitive help page, and I'd like it to appear beneath the menu on the left-hand side. However, I'm not sure how to get it to do this... Also, the menu uses Javascript to expand and contract each menu section, so this Help link would need...

The following code will produce similar results in IE6 and firefox 1.0.4 however the left margin in FF is 4 pixels and in IE it is 5. Can anyone see why this is happening? I can't seem to figure it out! TIA Jeff <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"

I have developed a generic list-based css menu. It works both in IE7 and Firefox, and with the help of Peter Nederlof's csshover.htc, with older IE versions. I have included a simplified version below. The list goes something like this: <ul class="menu"> <li>Menu 1 <ul> <li>Item 1</li>

I have a strange problem where it seems IE is doing the correct layout but Firefox and Safari isn't. I think I'm probably wrong, and there is something in the standards that say behaviour should be like Firefox does, but could someone tell me what is right? In the below code I have element trees with three DIVs; the outer DIV establishes a positioning context and the "middle" DIV uses absolute positioning to put its top left corner in the...
