Image hidden by div pb (Was: A new webcomic)

I crosspost and followup to comp.infosystems.www.authoring.stylesheets
because we're not really on the webcomic topic any more :)

It should be ugly but perfectly readable with IE.
Well, boxes full of text and stuff come out on top of the comic, and
yeah, I can read the stuff in the boxes perfectly.

All the discussion sent me over - just to add to your data, I am using
IE 6.0 and the comments box displays on top of the comic. I can see
about the top 1/3 of the strip.


Does it comes out well if you reload it ?

I've got a theory: the page is rendered before the image is loaded, then
IE loads the image but doesn't re-render the page.

I certainly can give the image a predefined size, but it's so stupid it
make me angry. If that's the problem, then IE really sucks. But I can't
reproduce the bug (I saw it one time and now it's away) so I can't run
tests.
Love it or hate it, a hellovalot of your viewers are going to be using
IE.
I know that. Still, only 20% of my viewers used IE (46% mozilla, 27%
firefox), which certainly mean my viewers have good taste ^^l
My advice - apply the KISS factor and try to make the page work
for the widest variety of browsers. They just want to see your work.
Well, it quite simple actually: a <body> with a big padding-left
(for the menu) and the DIVs are one after another, that's all.

Well, with great power comes great resp... I mean with great page
design, comes complex code...

Anyway, thanks very much for your feedback.
