IE / DIV background-color

P: n/a
Hi all,

Hopefully there's a simple answer to this!

I'm working on this site:

http://www.magus-toolbox.com/

And I want a grey box on the right to show supplemental
information. If you look at the URL in Mozilla or Opera,
this grey box looks fine.

But in IE the background colour and borders are either
missing altogether or only partially drawn.

The box is just a DIV, with this style:

#rightColumnBox {
background-color: #DBDBDB;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #646464;
border-width: 1;
width: auto;
height: auto;
margin: 120px 0 0 0;
min-height: 120px;
padding: 10px 3px 10px 3px;
font-size: x-small;
}

(The full stylesheet is http://www.magus-toolbox.com/css/magus-toolbox.css )

Can someone put me out of my misery?!?

Resetting width seems to cure it in IE
I don't know if this will upset anything else!

#rightColumnBox {
background-color: #DBDBDB;
border-style: solid;
border-color: #646464;
border-width: 1;
width: 120px;
height: auto;
margin: 120px 0 0 0;
min-height: 120px;
padding: 10px 3px 10px 3px;
font-size: x-small;
}

Cheers,
Peter

^^^^^

Yep, that did it! (And Moz and Opera are still happy).

Many thanks, that was driving me mad!
