Hi - I'm down the path of css from tables and am having trouble getting rid of the border that appears on an image button in IE (FF fine).  Also the telephone text seems to bleed to the next line.  Any ideas as to what am I doing wrong?

Heres my code:
#topbar,
#topnav {
      float:left;
      width:584px;
      margin:0;
      padding:0;
      display:inline;
}
#topbar,
#topnav img,
#topnav .nav,
#topnav a {
      float:left;
      margin:0px;
      display:inline;
      border:none;
}
#top-nav-tel {
      float:left;
      margin:0;
      padding:0;
      display:inline;
      width:205px;
      height:28px;
      background:url(../images/telephone-bg.jpg) no-repeat;
}

And here's the html:
                  <div id="topnav">
                        <a class="nav" href="javascript:;" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore();" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('top-menu-shop','','images/top-menu-shop-on.jpg',1);"><img name="top-menu-shop" src="images/top-menu-shop-off.jpg" width="87" height="28" border="0" id="top-menu-shop" alt="The Shop" /></a>
                        <a class="nav" href="javascript:;" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore();" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('top-menu-basket','','images/top-menu-basket-on.jpg',1);"><img name="top-menu-basket" src="images/top-menu-basket-off.jpg" width="191" height="28" border="0" id="top-menu-basket" alt="Your shopping basket" /></a>
                        <a class="nav" href="javascript:;" onmouseout="MM_swapImgRestore();" onmouseover="MM_swapImage('top-menu-checkout','','images/top-menu-checkout-on.jpg',1);"><img name="top-menu-checkout" src="images/top-menu-checkout-off.jpg" width="101" height="28" border="0" id="top-menu-checkout" alt="Checkout" /></a>
                        <div id="top-nav-tel">
                              <p><strong>Call us on</strong>0234 1567714</p>      
                              </div>
                  </div>

Thanks in advance,
Tony

when you use float left, then use clear. So here clear the right section. Like this:

clear:right;

Thanks for the input - that doesn't seem to have solved it:

I have changed the background colour of div #topnav to highlight problem.  I'm sure I have forgotten something simple - but cant see what!!

Get rid of ALL HTML comments and try this in your css:

img{vertical-align:bottom;}

I think that may have something to do with your repeating text issue.

Hi
Putting img{vertical-align:bottom;} in the css has closed the gap in ie - thanks.

But sadly taking all comments out of html file has not changed the repeating text.

It turns out that this duplicating characters bug can be triggered by other things than just HTML comments. Any elements given the style {display: none} will also induce the bug. In fact, even hidden inputs can do it, and presumably any other elements that don't actually display for some reason. Apparently the act of hiding a source element is the critical trigger for this bug.

Your bug is only visible in ie6, had to dig out an virtual image to test on the browser.  add the code below to the head of the page after you style sheet to hide the problem.

<!--[if IE 6]>
#topnav {
overflow:hidden;
height:28px;
}
<![endif]-->

Don't you just love this game!  The -3px margin right did the trick.

Many thanks,
Tony
