CSS Float IE issues

1 New Member
I am just transitioning to div based layout and love it so far...

I am having a few quirks with IE that I can use some help with.

SAMPLE: http://arenamotorgroup .com/index_comp.html

In IE this div

<div style="float:le ft; width:264px; background-color:#383838; margin-left:46px; height:400px;">

is floating with a margin larger than 46px and the following div is clearing below it.

1. Why is the margin expanded and 2. can I float right the other div and have them overlap without it forcing to clear the previous element? thanks for any help...

I've been happily chugging along thinking I understood floating divs and now find that I know a lot less than I thought I did. And the more I try "fixing" things, the worse it gets. A lot of what I'd been doing looked okay in IE 6.0, but in Gecko browsers like my Netscape 7.1 (I've been told they conform better to the standards than does IE), they look terrible. http://trialanderror.100freemb.com/20040115FloatDiv.html is a page I put...

I've googled around, and asked everyone I know, but I still can't find any reference to anyone else having faced this particular IE bug with floats. I've put a page at http://dochawk.org/sample.html . This was made by stripping out the google ads from the regular pages. It validates as strict 4.01 at http://validator.w3.org. (The google ads drive it nuts!) The main (right) column is made with alternating left and right floats to...

Should it be possible to create a custom class, 'Float', which would behave as a drop-in replacement for the builtin float type? As mentioned in another thread, I once tried this in rather a hurry to try and catch some floating point naughtiness, but was stumped in various places. Is there a fundamental obstacle to doing this? thanks, G.A.

Is there a difference between a constant like "12.34f" and "(float) 12.34"? In principle, at least, the latter is a double constant being cast to a float; while the two both generate actual constants, does the latter ACTUALLY do a conversion at compile time? That is, are there constants where <constant>f != (float) <constant>

Hello everybody, I would like to ask anybody to help me understand what should be done exactly with this Problem. I have provided what I have up to now, although it is not quite accurate. Create a class to operate on the US currency. Call the new class Money. All the data components in this class for dollars and cents are integer variables (this is where I get confused and don't know how to actually do the job). Include member functions...

I am trying to write a function that returns a float. This is what the function should do: It takes the socket number and a variable name. The function looks up the variable in an array of structs stored on a server. The string (of a float number) stored is returned. The function works except that it does not return a float. It retreives the string fine, but I don't know why it is not converting the string to a float. What am I doing...

Folks, Well I am still dabling in the mire of math.h and getting on reasonably well. A couple of questions. Firstly when defining some of the extreme values in the many bits of code seem to use "extern" definitions of various types. Is it OK to do something like this in float.h:- extern _ex_dbl_vals; DBL_MAX _ex_dbl_vals;

I have an application that sends messages to other applications through PostMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, MY_MESSAGE_ID, wparam_float, lparam_float); in C (and this works... I can typecast and built byte arrays with whatever I want in C and extract them at the other end just fine). I am now needing to interface with C# and find I cannot do this in an easy way (at least for me). When I try something like: Single sValue= (Single) m.LParam;

Folks, We ran into a pretty significant performance penalty when casting floats. We've identified a code workaround that we wanted to pass along but also was wondering if others had experience with this and if there is a better solution. -jeff

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

Dear forum friends, With the development of smart home technology, a variety of wireless communication protocols have appeared on the market, such as Zigbee, Z-Wave, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc. Each protocol has its own unique characteristics and advantages, but as a user who is planning to build a smart home system, I am a bit confused by the choice of these technologies. I'm particularly interested in Zigbee because I've heard it does some...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
