HTML code

<div id="error">
	<h1>404 Not Found</h1>
	<h2>Cause</h2>
	<p>The 404 Not Found error is an <acronym title="Hypertext Transfer Protocol">HTTP</acronym> status code that means that the page you were trying to reach could not be found on the web site&#39;s server.</p>
	<h2>Resolution</h2>
	<p>Retry the web page by clicking the refresh/reload button or trying the <acronym title="Uniform Resource Locator">URL</acronym> from the address bar again.</p>
</div>

I'm not sure why you need hacks to get a Heading to display correctly.

Just set all margins and padding, set a font size and set positioning to relative.

You should remove the float left, i can't really see what that is supposed to be doing and it won't be helping!

try doing what i suggested...

"Just set all margins and padding, set a font size and set positioning to relative.

You really souldn't need a hack for a simple page like that.

I'm sure it must be the floating left part!

I agree, it is almost certainly the float:left part not getting cleared that is causing this.
