I've put this page as an example, cause this problem is hard to explain.

This thing ONLY appears in IE6!  What actually happens is that when you hover over that text input, the text cursor does not appear and so you can not click on it to enter text.  (OK, you can hit TAB several times..).
Actually, I am not completely accurate because if you really hover slowly, you can see that there is a very small space (1pixel above or below the top edge of the input) when the text cursor DOES appear.

What I also discovered so far is that when I take away the " position: relative; " from the " #all #middle " style, the problem is gone.
But in the real thing (the online site) i can't remove this style, since that line makes things inside this division behave more decent in IE.  (If I don't put that line, things start to position themselves all on the wrong positions in IE, e.g. floats).

Now, I've come this far and now I am at a total (nervous breaking down) loss...

Anhyone any idea?
