IE 7 Margin Problem

P: n/a
In IE 7, is there a bottom margin showing in

<http://netweaver.com.au/alt/IEBottom...e7_margin_prob
lem.html>

please in this test case.

I have not identified this bug, if it is one and if anyone has
come across it, what are best ways of defeating it? I can think
of practical ways (and have implemented them already elsewhere),
but I suspect that there is better. (eg, an extra div, empty with
a height at the bottom. Not pretty!)

Dorayme,

Internet Explorer 8 bugs: bug 48
Top and bottom margins unexpectedly not rendered in Internet Explorer
8
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSe...IE8Bugs/#bug48
has 3 testcases. Only the first testcase makes IE 8 not render both
top and bottom margins.

Internet Explorer 7 bugs: bug 119
Bottom margin unexpectedly not rendered in Internet Explorer 7
http://www.gtalbot.org/BrowserBugsSe...E7Bugs/#bug119
has 3 testcases.

You may want to report the bug yourself to Microsoft with its "Report
a webpage problem" IE add-on: this can/will help everyone or will make
sure Microsoft fixes this bug once for all, for everyone and forever.

Regards, Gérard

Thank you for this Gerard. I have read all your posts on this carefully.
I will report as you suggest. The case I made up was just to illustrate
the margin problem. On the site from which it occurs, I will be giving
IE 7 a conditional comment css instruction to give some bottom padding
to the body and not using any totally unnecessary divs to overcome the
bug.

On your note about emulation, I had an odd experience recently where one
person I know was seeing a float hanging out of a container on IE6. It
was not being duplicated on my own winbox which has a real IE 6 app. The
machine on which the float hung out instead of being contained within
the parent was seen on IE6 *as emulated via IE7*.
