Please can you look at this page and advise why the right hand border is missing from the div. This only happens in IE6

    Would you except any guess? I would put my blame on global warming, then. Giving the information you have supplied, I would say that this is a good guess.

    If you want something helpful: let's us say that you do not have a border statement nullifying the right border (e.g. border-right: 0 px solid #colour; while having a border statement above that saying border: 2px solid #colour), there could be many reasons why your border right div is not showing.

    Perhaps the div is being pushed out of alignment?

    I could make a lot of qualified, like un-qualified, guesses; a little bit more to go would be helpful.

    Hello andieje,

    This may be caused by the content being too big for the container...

    Also, some versions of IE do not apply the css box-model correctly...

    I hope this helps!

    what's with the sarcasm? I forgot to paste the url

    oceanbeach...this is related to the problem i was having with the other question....anything that i put inside the div that is over 968 is causing the width to expand the result of this it would seem in IE6 is to not show the right hand border. I will reduce the width of the content but i don't understand why there isn't as much content as there should be.

    I will look at the the answer to the other question and try and see where my missing pixels are going.

    thanks a lot
