http://www.seandelaney.co.uk/ee/screenshot-1.png // IE browser using error.css & ie-hacks.css

i have been playing about with different hacks but i cant get it to sit the way i want it to sit - like it does in Firefox...

Please advise
error.css

--------------------
 

div#error

{

	margin-top:0px;

	border-left:1px solid #C8C8C8;

	border-right:1px solid #C8C8C8;	

	clear:both;

	background:#FFFFFF;

	color:#202020;

}
 

div#error h1,

div#error h2

{

	background:#FFFFFF;

	margin-top:10px;

	margin-bottom:10px;

	font-family:"Trebuchet MS";

	font-size:1.2em;

	padding-left:10px;

	float:left;

	width:98%;

}
 

div#error p

{

	margin:0px;

	line-height:150%;

	padding-left:10px;

	padding-top:0px;

	padding-bottom:15px;

	padding-right:10px;

}
 
 

ie-hacks.css

------------------------

div#header h1

{

	width:98%;

}
 

div#error h1

{

	position:relative;

	margin:0px;

	padding-top:10px;

	padding-bottom:10px;

}
 

div#error h1,

div#error h2

{

	width:97%;

}
 

a

{

	cursor:hand; 

}
 
 

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.
