need help seeing my alignment issue solution

P: n/a
I have a problem with the page at http://medicine.med.unc.edu:8500/ind...sions.gmglance
it displays correctly as it is, when I add one more personnel record
to the main content or innerDiv area, my nav menu drops down and to
the left of the browser window. I can't see the trees for the forest
with it at the moment, was hoping someone might spot something obvious
in it and help an old guy out ;)

Thanks! Bob

I copied and pasted one of your personnel blocks into the content area
about four or five more times, and nothing changed. Must be something
peculiar to your browser? What browser are you testing with? I was using
Firefox.

BTW, what is the purpose of the long empty blue box over on the left
side?

I did that too with the same results.

The blue box contains a series of menu items and things, intermittently,
that I think may be installed there by JavaScript. So if JS is turned
off you'll probably just get an empty box.

Ah, you're right*. It's a whole, rather large, menu!

Perhaps the OP isn't aware that JavaScript may be disabled by the user,
not be available in the user's browser, or stripped by a corporate
firewall, in which case the entire rest of the site is not accessible.

I suspected you might have known that.

I just uncommented 5 blocks of personnel within that area and the menu
is now pushed down to the bottom and left corner of my browser window,
using FF 2.0 and same results on IE 6 & 7, can you possibly take a
look now and see if you're seeing the same thing please?

Yes indeed it is a menu in JS, ;) I've inherited this thing am in
process of rebuilding it using css, for the most part anyway. Until I
can convince the powers that be here to let me rebuild the menu, this
is what they like. The site is for the most part aimed at faculty,
staff and students here.

Issue resolved, copied code from another section, changed data and is
displaying fine now, thanks to all for taking the time to look at
this.

I saw your other post that 'it is working now.' Sort of... there are
issues with the vertical borders on the content block in IE6; gaps
appear. These gaps do not show in Firefox, Opera, SeaMonkey.

Are you certain all your staff and students have JavaScript enabled?
