floating an image to the right of headings and paragraphs

dreamcatcher
Hi there,
I've a problem with IE 6 floating an image to the right of some body content which is contained in a p tag which is followed by a level 3 heading and a list.
The floated image works fine in the ever dependable Mozilla, i.e. the content aligns neatly along the left hand side of the image. The thing is there's a gap between the first paragraph and the next level 3 heading. I know it's an IE problem, does anyone have a solution for it? If this dosen't explain I'll send on a url. Many thanks S.

Hmm, I managed to get "pull quote" div's to hang to the right or left of paragraphs on this page:

http://math.uci.edu/~pmacklin/Comput...lOncology.html

with this CSS:

http://math.uci.edu/~pmacklin/pmacklin.css

It worked in both FF/Mozilla and ie6 when I did my testing. (I now have ie7 due to the MS rollout yesterday.)

I'm afraid I don't have time to give explicit details on how to do it, but if you dig through the source of those two pages, you should be able to see how it's done. Please do post if you continue to have difficulty. -- Paul

Cheers for the reply Paul,

what I'm looking at is contained within a single div tag, I probably should have added the url to explain the way IE changes the layout in the center column. Is this a quirks mode thing, I just read about it briefly. Anyway the url is: http://www.wallswelldrilling.ie/index2.htm, the site's a work in progress. S

Hmm, alas, I don't have ie6, so I can't really see the issue firsthand. Can you get a screenshot? Or, which name (including graphic name, so it's easier to search in page source).

Anybody else? -- Paul

Hi there, unfortunately I can't paste a screenshot into this app. but the code is from just below the second heading of About Us.

In IE the content of "We provide the following.... which is a h3 heading sits below the image "img src="walls_well_drilling_images/geothermal_home.jpg". Thanks for your time. S

<p><img src="walls_well_drilling_images/geothermal_home.jpg" alt="Wall’s Well Drilling, geothermal and borehole machinery." width="190" height="225" />
