Using float:right in Netscape with absolute positioning

I am attempting to display two images on a web page. The second
"image" is actually two images, one overlaid on the other. The first
one is aligned on the left using float:left. I have enclosed the next
two images in a <DIV> tag with float: right in order to force the
containing content to be aligned on the right. I also set
position:relati ve so that any absolute positioning within the <DIV>
will be relative to the itself.

The overlay image (id=ma_1_1_1) has position:absolu te with left and
top set to 0 to force it to display on top of the image with id=map.

This works fine in IE6, but does not work at all in Netscape 7. In
Netscape 7, the overlay image is positioned all the way to the left.
Does anyone know how to make the overlay image line up on the right in
Netscape? Thanks.

Try Netscape 7.2. I suspect that you will find that 7.2 works fine. Which
of course does not fix your problem for those who refuse to upgrade despite
the many bugs and security problems in older versions.

Unlike Mozilla, when float:right an item in IE6, it's sort of appending a <br> after the float. You can see the difference here: http://toylet.homeip.net/~toylet Is there a way to stop IE6 from doing htat? Could I specify a right margin to the float so that IE6 wouldn't do that? -- .~.
