<img> placement issues in IE / Mozilla

Posted on 2006-11-20
Last Modified: 2006-11-20
I have some html as follows (3 buttons one under the other):

Some text bla bla<br><br>
<A href=""><IMG height=22 width=80  src="\" border=0></A> Click here <br>
<A href=""><IMG height=22 width=80 src="" border=0></A> Click here<br><br>
<A href=""><IMG height=40 width=120 src="" border=0></A>

In IE6 and Opera they are positioned one under the other properly. In Mozilla, they overlap vertically. How can I fix this problem in Mozilla AND not screw up the code in IE?

Greetings tr5,

Try adding

<style type="text/css">
a {display:block;}

in the head of the page or a {display:block;} in your stylesheet

If that doesnt work, post a link to the page or the code of the page and I will try to fix it for you

An improvement, but now (looking at the following lines) the "Click here" is now underneath the image, I guess because of the block. Any way to position it next to the image?
<A href=""><IMG height=22 width=80  src="\" border=0></A> Click here <br>

<a href=""><img height="22px" width="80px" src="image.jpg" border=0 />Click here</a>

If you dont want the click here to be part of the link, you could do something like this

<a href=""><img height="22px" width="80px" src="image.jpg" border=0></a> Click here
<a href=""><img height="22px" width="80px" src="image.jpg" border=0></a> Click here

You wouldnt need the a {display:inline;} in the css aswell

I don't want the "click here" to be part of the link. The <div> solves the problem, but it puts a different amount of space below the image depending on whether it is IE or Mozilla!! How would you deal with that?

* {

to your styles. This will set the default padding and margin on all elements to 0. ie adds padding by default. If the space is still there, try removing whitespace from your html i.e. no spaces between tags in the html

I am going to go with the <div> as the solution. It is good enough. Seems like getting the same behavior in different browsers is impossible anyway.
