CSS in IE6 vs Mozilla

sjp
Hi folks,

I've been working on a little script to display a scoreboard and then
positioning it using CSS. Works fine in Mozilla. Not-so-much in IE6.
I've been hack-hack-hacking away at it, but am stumped.

Can anyone point out where I might be going wrong? I'd like to launch the
site this week, and need to figure this out before I do.

Erm. What's the problem? They look positioned the same.

There is a difference in colors for the scoreboard at the top between
the two browsers. IE did make the "score" table's background black; it
used "scoreboard"'s instead. Maybe if you set the <td>'s background to
black it would work the same.
Or you can cascade "score" within "scoreboard":
table.scoreboard { ... }
table.scoreboard table { ... }
table.scoreboard table td { color: white; background: black; }
Now the class="score" attribute is not even needed.

In other news:
- The image behind "ESPN NFL Headlines" is unnecessary. And when the text
wraps (because I made the text large enough to read), it overlays the text
beneath it. It's a solid color; style the <h2> (#sidebar h2 { ... }) to
have that color of background.

Thanks for the excellent suggestions, Jim.
