IE text wrap problem - FF working fine

25
Hi, i'm having a problem wrapping text around an image in IE. Firefox works perfectly, with the image floating to the right, then the text displaying alongside the image until it gets beyond the image, where it spreads out to full width. In IE, the text displays alongside the image, however, when it reaches the bottom of the image it continues to stay at a narrow width until that paragraph is finished. This can look pretty poor if it is a long paragraph.

Any ideas how I can resolve this IE issue?

'max-height' and 'max-width' does not work in IE; only modern browsers. But IE treats 'height' and 'width' incorrectly, too. Try just setting height and width and see if that fixes it in old, buggy non-standard IE. (I don't have my Windows box for testing right now)

Hi there thanks for the reply, I've managed to sort this by removing max-width on the <p> and moving it to the containing <div>

Ok but, remember, max-width still doesn't work in IE; only modern browsers.
