Large unexplained white space in CSS structured page (only in IE)

Hi there

I have the following homepage, structured in CSS:

http://www.capitacommunications.co.uk/cbt/

The CSS is here:

http://www.capitacommunications.co.uk/cbt/css/main.css

In IE6, you will notice that there is a large gap between where the homepage content ends (so at the bottom of the Quick Access box) and where the footer begins. I cannot work out why this is there - it only happens on the homepage and I want to get rid of it. There are no "margin-bottom" values on the elements and no "margin-top" on the footer that are causing this.

In Firefox this is not there...

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

Without looking at the page, I would guess that this is a whitespace issue if it is only happening in ie.

Format your html like this and see if it fixes


</div
><div id="footer"</div>

Try changing:

<br style="clear: both;"/>  

to:

<div style="clear: both;"/>  

I am seeing this line just above your footer div.

Thanks oneiriod, but that hasn't cracked it.

That change pushes the div above (homepage contact div) onto the next line...

Ok, the problem is the 'contact us' div pushing the footer down.

You have an extra row at the bottom

  </tr>
 
  <tr>
     <td width="50"><img src="iconnewsletter.gif"></td>
        <td class="headingblue">Stay in the know<br>
              <a href="http://www.capitacommunications.co.uk/cbt/contact/newsletter.htm" class="homelinks">Sign-up to our
              newsletter</a></td>
  </tr>
  <tr>                                              <------------
      <td></td>                                   Remove this
    <td>&nbsp;</td>                          row
  </tr>                                             <------------
</tbody></table>

Hiya

Thanks all but I've actually found the following code underneath the ACCESSIBILITY AND ACCREDITATIONS div

---------
   
 <div class="clear">&nbsp;</div>

  <p><br />
    </p>

  </div>  
-------------

So I have removed the

  <p><br />
    </p>

and all is well!
